How to prepare for a collection


  • collections start at 7am, so please remember to get those items out for collection on your scheduled day
  • please make sure the items are accessible
  • make sure items are outside your property in your garden or driveway and are all in one place, please do not leave on public land
  • If you are leaving items out before your scheduled collection, please cover any fabric based items to ensure they do not get waterlogged
  • remove any nails from wood or furniture
  • tie, tape or bundle large amounts of wood like flooring, old furniture units, carpet and underlay
  • tape up any glass - we can only lift panes of glass if they are still in their frame and have been taped over.


  • leave items inside your property, we can't enter parts of your home, like garages and sheds, to collect items
  • leave out any items other than those you originally booked with us - we can't collect them
  • leave out waterlogged carpets or mattresses.
