Start a household clearance business Document Transcript

  • 1. Start  a  Household  Clearance  Business   A  household  clearance  business  can  be  a  huge  help.  They  enter  the  homes  of  those  who  have   deceased  or  vacated  and  essen:ally  clean  them  out  top  to  bo;om.  They  get  rid  of  everything   inside  from  garbage  to  collec:bles  and  everything  in  between.    If  you  have  an  interest  in  second   hand  goods,  trading  or  collec:bles,  this  could  be  an  ideal  business  for  you. How  Does  a  Household  Clearance  Business  Make  Money? A  household  clearance  business  generally  makes  money  by  selling  the  items  they  find  inside  the   home.  A  home  that’s  been  foreclosed  on  is  oAen  leA  full  of  furniture,  appliances  and  equipment   that  the  previous  owners  just  couldn’t  take  with  them.  A  clearance  business  can  sell  all  of  these   items  for  a  profit.  In  the  case  of  foreclosure  or  a  death,  that’s  generally  how  they  profit.   However,  a  clearance  business  can  also  charge  by  the  hour  or  by  the  home  or  project. What  Do  You  Need  to  Start  a  Household  Clearance  Business? If  you’re  going  to  be  removing  and  transpor:ng  garbage,  you’ll  want  to  look  into  your  local   licensing  regula:ons.  Many  communi:es  require  a  special  license  for  transpor:ng  waste.   Addi:onally,  you  will  likely  want  to  make  sure  your  business  is  insured.   You’ll  need  vehicles  to  transport  all  of  the  waste  and  items  found  inside  the  home.  Storage  for   the  items  you  find  inside  the  home  and  intend  to  sell  is  also  helpful.  You  may  also  need  a  few   employees  unless  you  are  content  to  work  long  and  laborious  days  on  your  own.  It  would  be  a   good  idea  to  have  a  few  burly  men  on  call  who  can  do  heavy  liAing  for  you. You’ll  want  to  have  some  basic  cleaning  equipment  as  well.  These  might  include  gloves,  shovels,   and  containers  for  waste  and  items  to  be  removed.  While  no  formal  training  or  educa:on  is   required,  if  you’re  looking  to  sell  collec:bles,  then  knowledge  of  an:ques  and  collec:bles  will   help.  
  • 2. Marke<ng  Your  Household  Clearance  Business In  this  business  it  pays  to  have  connec:ons.  You  will  want  to  connect  with  funeral  homes  that   can  pass  out  your  card  when  a  client  asks  for  guidance.  Senior  centers,  churches  and   synagogues  may  also  be  good  places  to  have  cards.  You  can  also  connect  with  real  estate  agents   who  will  be  aware  of  foreclosed  homes.  You  can  also  market  your  business  online  and  in  local   business  directories.  Think  about  where  someone  would  look  for  your  service  and  then  make   sure  you’re  represented  there.   Owning  a  household  clearance  business  can  be  a  lot  of  work  but  it  can  also  be  a  lot  of  fun.   You’re  able  to  see  real  progress  as  you  clear  out  a  home.  You  might  find  rare  and  valuable  items   inside  a  home  and  you’re  providing  a  service.  If  you  don’t  mind  working  the  occasional  long  day   and  you  do  enjoy  clearing,  cleaning  and  selling  items,  then  a  household  clearance  business  may   be  your  dream  opportunity.
