A Complete Guide to Home Clearance

A Complete Guide to Home Clearance

Home Clearance

It can be one of the most precarious services to request from a business. A home clearance requires dealing with tricky items such as waste products, bulky disposals and removal of other waste items. The whole process takes a lot of time and effort and sometimes even emotional ties are involved.

Now the question arises, how to find a professional house clearance agency or company? Furthermore, what to look for? There are plenty of companies out there but the trick is to find which one is providing the best or most professional service.

First of all, is the company you select for house clearance fully licensed or not? Keep in mind if there are some dangerous hazardous waste material in your house, then to deal with this, that particular company should be fully registered with the health environment agency. Also for any house clearances the company should be fully insured to cover any accidental damage that takes place whilst carrying out the removal process.

Make sure the company you select is able to deliver all the services you require! Specifically removing all requested goods, even electrical items that might not be so easy to dispose of. Are they able to remove a bulky products like clearing a car, a boat etc. The most important point, most of the companies deal with industrial and residential clearing differently. So it’s your responsibility that whichever company you hire, you make sure they are able to cope with the unwanted items and the circumstances that they require disposing of in.

Additionally consider what the organization will do with the waste once it has expelled it. In these modern times, many of us are trying to recycle, so choose a company that is focused on doing as much green friendly work as possible. Not all the companies recycle to the same degree , as some do the minimal amount that is required by the law while other companies ensure that they recycle and reuse everything collected from your house.

Also consider every aspect of the business relationship. A professional House Clearance Sheffield company has various benefits. In general, how much the total cost will be? Sure, it may cost somewhat more than doing it yourself. But by hiring professional services you know that the job is carried out as quickly as possible which saves time, and they do it in an efficient way whilst also insuring every single item. Most of the companies make sure that once the job is completed they leave the place neat and tidy so that it looks in pristine condition.


Always go for a professional that provides all the services that you require and don’t go for the cheap services with mesmerizing offers. First take the time to consider for yourself before making any final decision. Take the feedback from others or you can also read reviews of that particular company online and see what the companies testimonials and reviews etc are like.

15 Things That Need To Be Invented Now

The next round of needed life hacks.

For Millennials, life is constantly being made easier. Compared to our parents' generation, almost everything about the way we run our day-to-day lives has been modified for speed, simplicity, and convenience. You want a cup of coffee? Here, have an instant cup of hot coffee at the push of a button! Missing your friend across the country? Call them with your smartphone, see them instantly! You can Google virtually any question, there is an app for every want and need; each step of the way Millennials are working to make things easier. I have a few ideas to contribute:

1. Extending USB cord: There must be USB plug that can stretch. The way a dogs leash will release more cord as it is pulled on, there needs to be a cord that can stretch as I roll over in bed without pulling the plug out of the wall. The struggle of being attached to a wall is too great.

2. Closet Organizer App: Some mornings you wake up and wonder how it was ever possible that you once found a decent looking outfit in your closet. Other days the prospect of having to dress yourself is just too much. There needs to be an app that can record what is in a closet and make an outfit, for any event, at the ready, similar to what Cher Horowitz has in Clueless.

3. Hangover Curing Drink: Stronger than Gatorade, better for you than pumping your stomach with Advil and water, and putting an end to the old "flu" excuse at work. A foolproof drink that can give everyone what they need to get up, pick their dignity off the floor, and soldier on. You all may thank me later.

4. Rent-A-Boyfriend: Have you ever had one of those weeks where you just need someone to bring you chocolate cake in bed and tell you you're beautiful? Maybe you really can't figure out how to build all the new Ikea furniture for your apartment and you are incapable of rounding up a guy friend to do it. Either way, the ability to rent a boyfriend on a needed basis would be quite handy. Think of all the stuff they could do for you, then you get to return them when you're done! It's like a dream.

5. Parking Tracker: What is it about parking garages that suddenly make everyone's memory go blank? Whatever the reason for the world's inability to keep track of their cars once stationary, it needs to be resolved. Too many minutes are lost aimlessly wandering the garage carrying heavy shopping bags. Please, someone invent a tracking app for your car, so that you can remember exactly where you parked and follow the map directly to it.

6. Forever-Hot Coffee Mug: I'm not sure what type of wizardry would be required to create a coffee mug that can abolish the awful lukewarm state that coffee turns into after such a short period of time, but someone needs to discover it. Long nights of studying and hours-long brunches of switching between the mimosa and the sweet nectar of the Gods will be forever changed by never again fearing cool coffee.

7. Teleportation Pad: The year is 2015; I was promised a flying car. In lieu of the flying car -- I am willing to accept teleportation pads. Think about travel becoming as easy as "stand here and click that button." Imagine not having to bother putting on a bra to go from your apartment to your friend's apartment for wine night! This could be revolutionary.

8. Sassy Siri: Every girl could use someone to help them come up with the perfect come back in a pinch, and who better than Siri! With her constantly involved in your conversations, it would be easy to just ask Siri for a little sass-assistance the next time your best frenemy mocks your highlights.

9. Compliment Earrings: If you have never seen Aquamarine, go rent it now. For those who recall, the star fish earrings were "notorious suck ups" to the girls who wore them. Imagine going through a tough day, when unexpectedly you are given a compliment! Talk about a great mid-day pick up.

10. Food Printer: My stalking of Pinterest food pages has progressed from a mild addiction to a full blown problem; I always find I want the things I see in the pictures immediately. I want to be able to hit print on one of the pictures and have those lemon-blueberry iced cupcakes in my kitchen right then.

11. Necklace De-Tangler: Ladies across the country lose thousands of necklaces to tangled knots. Chains break, two beautiful separates become one big mess, and before you know it your jewelry box is empty! There must be a machine where one could drop their knotted necklaces and have them come out the other side in perfect condition.

12. Hot Slippers: On a cold Monday morning when walking around the kitchen, debating which is worse, waking up or being awake, it would be nice to be comfortable. Nice pajamas are all well and good, but a fuzzy pair of slippers that can become warm? That is the dream. There is no morning too grey or hangover too intense that would not be cured with these slippers.

13. Calorie Rewind: There needs to be a way to take back that entire pepperoni pizza you ate last night. Whether you were not in the proper state of mind to be making that decision, or even if it was emotional turmoil over exams; it shouldn't count. Perhaps the next big thing in weightloss is a pill that allows you to take back a meal. A way to go back in time and undo that embarrassing trip to the doughnut shop down the road in favor of a more healthy alternative? Not a bad idea.

14. Sleepy-Time Studying: How awesome would it be if you could fall asleep with headphones in and wake up knowing an entire textbook? Humans spend an average of 26 years sleeping-- there should be a way to put that time to good use. A way to absorb the information while you sleep should be the next big invention. It would be the perfect cure to the all nighter!

15. Decision Making App: Desperately struggling to pick where to go for dinner? Unable to decide whether to go out or stay in? Unsure of whether it's a day for heels or for flats? These are the everyday questions faced by thousands of Millennials. We need to find a cure for the indecisiveness. An app that takes the guess work out of meaningless day to day questions such as, "Do I want a grande or a vent?" (Or I suppose you could just flip a coin...)

Bonus 16. Articles That Write Themselves: I wish I had a magic box I could give an idea to and it would instantly put print out the article I am trying to write.

10 Ways to Make Money This Summer Without a 9-5 Job

For the broke partiers in search of cash for shots

I'm a saver, a money hoarder, the kind of girl who can extend Christmas for ten extra days by opening presents in a one-a-day fashion. However, despite my efforts, I always feel broke. Therefore, I have become very good at finding ways to make that pocket money that I always feel short on, so that I can use my Summer vacation time for fun, without having a 9-5 job to fund it.

1. Babysitting

You can do this via friends or family, or use sites such as Care.com to find jobs. WARNING: be careful with websites, as sometimes they can be unsafe. Always have someone accompany you to the location of a new job to make sure that the client is not a conman trying to meet a young student.

2. Dogwalking/Dogsitting/Dogboarding

Good apps and sites: Rover.com and Wag.com are great ways to find cute pets to take care of. The pay isn't amazing, but all you have to do is cuddle and play with puppies or go to the owner's house to feed them. Super easy and fun way to make some extra cash.

3. Catering

I have done this in all shapes and forms - as a busser, a dishwasher, a chef, a waitress, a tray passer. I love catering jobs because you work with a team and meet great people while working. There are many online agencies for this kind of work.

4. Sell your stuff

Use Ebay, LetGo, or your local Facebook Free and For Sale page to sell stuff that you no longer need. I have done this with furniture and kitchen appliances that I don't use. I would suggest starting the selling price at half price if the product is in good condition, and only stooping lower if your ad gets little to no attention. I have also gone to Crossroads (second hand clothing store) to sell the clothes I no longer wear. This is a great way to clear out your wardrobes if you're moving houses and need a good spring-clean.

5. Sell your body

I haven't personally done this, but many people sell their blood plasma or partake in medical studies. I would try and steer clear of this one where possible - kind of a desperate-times kind of deal...

6. Sell your essays

I have made a couple of hundred dollars from GradeSaver selling literary essays. These must be of good quality and they tend to only accept writing on classic books. They offer about $15-25 per essay depending on length!

7. Take your printers/old batteries to electronic recyclers

You kind find these kinds of shops in most cities. Just google your local electronic recyclers. They use these for revamps or take them apart to use the materials inside your old printers or batteries for other things.

8. Tutor

You can do this online or in person via many reliable and safe agencies. Sites such as Frogtutoring and Tutorful are good sources for jobs like this.

9. Go through Craigslist for "odd-jobs"

Many people search for laborers on Craigslist (e.g. cleaning out a garage, moving house, event staff). Again, make sure that you do this in a safe and secure manner by scoping out the customer and area before you accept a job.

10. Uber/Lyft

If you are lucky enough to have a car, sign up for Uber and/or Lyft. This is a job in which you have flexible hours and the freedom to lie in on lazy days.
