Hey there, Lancashire! Ever felt overwhelmed by clutter chaos? At Lancashire House Clearance, we get it. Homes hold memories, but sometimes, those memories get buried under mountains of "stuff." That's where we come in, but to truly transform cluttered houses into happy havens, we need your help!
Here's the story: We're a small, passionate team dedicated to clearing clutter with compassion and eco-conscious practices. We don't just chuck everything in a skip; we sort, recycle, and responsibly dispose of unwanted items, minimising environmental impact while maximising smiles. We love seeing the relief on faces as homes reclaim their spaciousness and families rediscover the joy of uncluttered living.
But here's the rub: Our trusty old van, affectionately nicknamed "Doris," is showing its age. It keeps chugging along, but it's prone to breakdowns, delaying clearances and putting a strain on our budget. That's where you come in.
With your help, we can:
- Upgrade to a reliable, eco-friendly vehicle: Imagine a zippy, fuel-efficient van whisking away clutter, leaving fresh air and smiles in its wake!
- Expand our services: Reach more families grappling with clutter, especially those facing financial difficulties. We offer discounts and even free clearances for some jobs, we even pay our customers occasionally.
- Invest in training and equipment: Level up our skills and tools to tackle even the most daunting hoards with efficiency and care.
By contributing, you're not just helping us clear clutter, you're:
- Investing in a greener Lancashire: We prioritise responsible waste disposal and recycling, reducing landfill burden and promoting sustainability.
- Building stronger communities: Helping families declutter can have a ripple effect, improving mental well-being and creating space for stronger connections.
- Supporting a local business: We're passionate about Lancashire and committed to making it a clutter-free, happy haven.
Every pound you donate is a step towards a clearer, brighter Lancashire. Join us on this mission! Share our story, spread the word, and let's make "clutter chaos" a thing of the past. Together, we can turn houses into homes, memories into joy, and make Lancashire shine, one decluttered corner at a time!
Everyone who can contribute will receive a Lancashire House Clearance Snow Globe :)
Let's do this, Lancashire! Together, we can clear the way for brighter skies.

We started Clear This Ltd. ( Trading as Lancashire House Clearance) in September 2022. Prior to this I was with Lancashire Clearance Services Ltd.
Our team is small with just 6 of us at the moment but we have just opened a shop in Blackpool and are looking to expand our business to include an auction house for even more re-use and recycling.
We take nothing to landfill. That is a fact. We recycle and re-use what we can in-house and anything we cannot deal with is taken to a materials recovery facility for further hand and mechanical sorting. This sorted material then gets sent for re-manufacture into new products.
As recycling technology improves, we know that more and more stuff will become recyclable. So for now we are trying to keep as much as possible from being wasted.
This will ensure our children and grandchildren will have a better life.
How will we use Crowdfunder Help?
- Deposit on a more economic friendly vehicle to enable more efficient sorting and reclamation on-site at house clearance and rubbish removal jobs.
- Rent larger premises to enable more in-house recycling which will generate extra revenue streams
- Set up an Environmentally Friendly Auction House where everything is from house clearance or rubbish removals. Another revenue stream from other peoples waste.
- The above goals will minimise the amount taken to the waste transfer station. This will reduce our costs and increase income.
- Set up a partnership with charities local to our offices in Chorley and Blackpool. This is something that I and the entire team want to do. We are aiming to give a minimum 10% of profit from our Chorley office to a Chorley based charity such as St. Laurences and Chorley Help The Homeless and the same 10% from our Blackpool office to Donna's Dream House.
