The new year is here, and what better way to kick off 2018 than by decluttering your home and starting with a fresh, clean slate? Yes, over the course of the past year there’s a pretty good chance you’ve accumulated a bunch of stuff that probably doesn’t belong in your home. Items such as broken electronics, old children’s toys and disused furniture can clog up your home and takes up precious space that could undoubtedly be put to better use. Does this sound like a familiar story? If so, you’ve come to the right place. Here at Removals For You, we offer industry leading storage and removal services and have worked extensively with clients in Selby and throughout Leeds, York, Sheffield and Hull. Here are three easy ways to clear the clutter from your home:


Sustainability is an increasingly important topic here in Yorkshire and across the wider UK. As such, one of the most eco-friendly things you can do while removing clutter from your home is recycle as much of it as possible. It goes without saying that waste material such as glass, plastic and paper can be easily disposed of in an environmentally friendly manner, but recycling doesn’t have to end there. For example, if you have damaged electrical gear, a number of local service providers will help you recycle old electronic equipment – often free of charge. In addition, if you have particularly bulky items, our professional removal team can help you transport them to a designated location.

Garage Sale

One man’s trash is another man’s treasure. Just because you no longer have use for a particular household item doesn’t mean it has to end up in the landfill. If you have a number of items that are in decent condition but you no longer have use for, consider having a good old fashioned garage sale. Get the word out there by advertising in your local paper as well as on your social media accounts. Be generous with your prices and don’t be reluctant to let things go – remember, the aim is to get rid of your clutter, not make a massive profit. Think of any money you make in the process as the cherry on top!


As circumstances in your life change, you may find many there are some items you no longer have need for – but that doesn’t necessarily mean you want to get rid of it! Whether it’s for practical or sentimental reasons, the good news is you don’t have to discard your treasured possessions just because space is low. Here at Removals For You, part of our house clearance service includes extensive storage options. Sleep easy knowing that your possessions are well cared for in our modern and secure storage warehouse located right here in Selby. Whether you’re clearing out your home or office, or need additional storage space, we’re here to help. Give us a call today on 01757 700 602 to discuss your options.
