Time Lapse Videos of Property Clearance

Clearing Junk is clearing junk right? Well actually No. Although it’s not a glamorous job it has to be done, effectively, properly, quickly, efficiently and in compliance with rules. These time lapse videos of Junk It Staff clearing debris from a Commercial Unit  in Carluke, South Lanarkshire and demonstrate how the efficiency and effectiveness of Junk It in clearing commercial property for property owners and landlords.

We give them back their lettable/usable space in a clean and usable condition and add value to their business. We dispose of the junk properly and ensure that there is no risk of any comeback from authorities (unlike the many amateurs who offer cheap and unregulated services and just offer fly-tipping)

Client’s Requirement

To clear an abandoned industrial unit that had been previously let and used as a wholesale hub. The tenants had vanished leaving the property in such a state that it couldn’t be re-let or viewed. The property managers (Junk-It’s client) needed to make repairs and bring it back to a leaseable standard.


There were over 35 tonnes of junk to be removed. The junk included old food, crisps, sweets, household junk such as toys, sofas and furniture and many combustibles which posed a significant fire risk if left. There were a large number of pallets to be removed as well as food waste and an enormous quantity of milk.

Junk-It’s Solution

We removed all rubbish and junk left behind in a day, arranged to have the pallets and milk collected by a local dairy instead of opting for landfill. Not shown in the videos there was a front office that was also cleared of desks, chairs, printers, etc. We had a food waste skip onsite for the disposal of foodstuffs and removed and disposed of everything else in the same day. We attained recycling rates in excess of 90% and were the most competitive of the quotes.


The client was in possession of a property fit for remedial works and the unit was re-let the same week.
