D.I.Y House Clearances vs. A Professional Clearance Service

This mock argument is between proponents of Do It Yourself or D.I.Y House Clearances and supporters of hiring a professional house clearance service. When contemplating a house, commercial or business clearance some people begin to wonder if they really need to hire a professional clearance service. In a bid to save costs, many people try to handle the entire process themselves. The question is thus whether it is better to handle house clearances yourself or pay a professional firm to take care of it for you.

Why you shouldn't do a D.I.Y house clearance?

The major argument of those who support D.I.Y house clearances is that it saves you money as you do not have to pay anyone to do it for you. You simply dedicate the time needed, gather some boxes and get down to it. In reality, a house clearance is not as easy as many may think. The entire process will need considerable time and manpower to do the job effectively. It takes a professional team made up of several workers several hours or days to totally clear a house and move the items to a recycling centre, new location or storage facility. The time spent is however greatly increased if handled by a few individuals who lack the needed experience.
