Foreclosed House Clearance, Hamilton

Case Study: Foreclosed House Clearance, Hamilton

Client name: Scottish Building Society
Business Sector: Mortgage Lending
Location: Hamilton


The house had been a foreclosure. The house had been left damaged, with cupboards left full of rotting food, animal waste on the carpets, unwashed clothing and other mess left by squatters before the locks were changed. Our client required the house to be completely cleared, including carpets, the back garden and shed.


Project Details

Large distance from the site to recycling and dumping facilities and the unpleasant smell of mould, rotten food and other waste.

House was completely cleared including the 3 layers of carpeting in each room, all cupboards, garden shed and under stairs. All junk from the main and common rooms was removed. Food and chemicals that we couldn't take were sorted and organized for the client's maintenance team to deal with. Dispatched a second truck to deal with the clearance. Transfer of recyclable to respective depots and the remaining to transfer stations for further sorting.

The house was left in a condition suitable to be viewed and sold at auction.

    Hi I had my garage cleared yesterday & I wanted to compliment the two young men who did an amazing job. They were punctual, polite, efficient & got the job done quickly. They also handled neighbours with courtesy. I would recommend your company to friends & family. Thank you very much for a great job.

    Ross and all the guys at Junk It offer a brilliant efficient and hassle free uplift service. I’ve used Junk It a few times to clear out offices of old furniture etc and they never disappoint. It’s great to know that most of the stuff they take away is re-used or recycled too. Don’t just chuck it – Junk It

    We have used Junk It on a number of occasions to carry out waste removal services. I can honestly say that the way in which the company operates, their fast response times, and overall methods are fantastic. It also gives us great peace of mind that we are dealing with a company who are totally up to date with SEPA and other environmental legislation, as we have come across many other waste management companies who are not fully aware of these issues. I would happily recommend Junk It to any other organisation.
