Deceased Estates

Have you lost or got a loved one in care? Do you have a house full of belongings to go through but don’t know where to start? Here at Backyard Cleanup we can help!

We understand that it’s a tough time. Having to deal with a loved one’s passing or illness is stressful enough without having to worry about what to do with a houseful of items. So here at Backyard Cleanup we like to take the stress out of this as much as possible. So  when you don’t have time to do it, we can come in and do it for you. We always recommend that you go through the house prior to us arriving so that you can take all valuables and anything else that you may wish to take. Alternatively, you can let us know if there are items you wish to keep and we will keep them aside for you.

The process that we like to take is a simple one and it does involve you. We talk with you to work out the best approach. Some people might just choose to have all the contents removed and taken to a transfer station, others may like to keep some belongings. The choice is yours. We go through all possible options with you before we proceed, so you feel comfortable with the process and outcome.

Because we like to recycle, we can call Vinnies and the salvos to come in to have a look at all furniture inside the home to see if there is anything that they can use. Sometimes they may take something but sometimes they don’t take items that are too worn or damaged. We take all usable/good-quality clothing to charities across Melbourne. Anything that can be recycled is! We endeavour to recycle as much as we can. All efforts are made to reuse/repurpose as much as possible.

Our approach to getting the job done is efficient and effective. We generally start by getting all the large items out of the house first and loaded into the truck. Loading the truck is like a game of tetras! stacking items in the truck to utilise as much space as possible. Every inch of space is used to maximise the amount we can fit in the truck. We then go room by room, emptying each room as we go. If we come across anything we think you may like, or if we find anything of value, we will keep it aside for you.

We also offer a cleanup service of the outdoor areas. We can clear out the garage, tidy up the garden, cut grass, trim hedges, remove plants, small trees and spread mulch etc. We can get the house up to scratch so it is ready to sell/rent. We can arrange to have the house cleaned for you and arrange all other materials that may be required for the completion of the job. As some clients do chose to have the gardens replanted and have mulch put down. We can organise all of this for you.

Once the truck is loaded up. We take it to a transfer station where it is weighed up. It is then emptied out and all contents are sorted, woods, metals, green waste etc are all taken to various locations. At Backyard Cleanup we endeavour to recycle as much as possible. We feel that, with the job that we do, we have a responsibility to the environment to help reduce the amount of waste that ends up in landfill.

At Backyard Cleanup we like to think of ourselves as a one-stop shop. We can pretty much take care of most things pertaining to the house/outdoor areas. Whether that be just taking away belongings that are no longer wanted or to help clean up the yard or to get the house/unit ready for sale or rent. We are here to help make this process as easy as possible so you can focus on the more important things.  We will always talk you through the processes we will take before we undertake the work. That way you can feel comfortable knowing that, whilst we may be removing unwanted items, we will still try to be as respectful as possible with them.
