Garage Clearance Service – Your Questions Answered

It’s all too easy to start using your garage as a dumping ground for household waste and items that you no longer need. Over time though, your garage can become full and you could find you want that space back for a more practical use.

You could take the items to the tip, but this can be a hassle, and can also mean the items don’t always get desposed of in an environmentally-friendly way. The alternative then, is to use an expert in waste removal services, like Away With It. Our garage clearance service is fast, reliable, and efficient, with competitive, cost-effective rates. 

Below, we answer some of your common questions about garage clearance, so you’ll know exactly what will be involved and how our service works.

How much does a garage clearance cost?

To give you a rough estimate, a garage clearance will typically cost between £75 and £300.

The real cost will depend on a number of factors, including how big your garage is, how many items you have in there, and the weight of the items that need to be removed. So, a double car garage filled with bulky items will cost more than a single car garage that only has a few things that need to be cleared.

At Away With It, you’ll only ever pay for the amount of space that’s used on our vehicle, unlike some waste removal providers who charge a full load regardless of how much space is taken up. Our price is all-inclusive, meaning there will be no hidden additional fees. Our price will include labour, disposal, and any other services that you request when quoting.

What affects the cost of a garage clearance?

As we mentioned, the size of your garage will affect the cost, and also how much you have in there that you need to be cleared. It may be that you only have some items taking up half the garage that need to be removed, or it could be that your garage has become a dumping ground and is piled floor-to-ceiling with waste items.

The weight of your waste will also affect the cost. The heavier your waste is, the more it will cost to remove it. This could include items such as:

  • Old tyres
  • Paving blocks, concrete, bricks
  • Unused paint tins
  • Steelwork
  • Old fridges or other large appliances
