  1. Booking.

    Book online or by phone choosing your most appropriate collection size and time. To secure the booking, we take a deferred card payment (similar to checking into a hotel).  

  2. Team Arrive.

    On arrival, the team confirms the collection size.  In the rare instance it’s different from booked, we revise the quote and ask for your go ahead (or you can cancel at no cost). 

  3. Junk Removed.

    The team clears your junk* from anywhere on the property and sweeps the area clean. On departure, they email you a waste transfer note including before & after photos.

  4. Recycle.

    Your junk is taken to a licensed commercial recycling facility where on average 95% is diverted from landfill.  Then we debit your card and email you a final receipt.

And that’s it. Super, super simple.

Clearabee or AnyJunk?  A Short Review

We’ve nothing against healthy competition – it keeps us on our toes.  One of our competitors, Clearabee likes to advertise on Google when people search our brand name, so we thought we’d return the favour and provide a quick comparison about how they stack up – because sometimes it’s tricky to see the wood from the trees …or the muck from the brass. Hopefully our short review speaks for itself.

Service

Clearabee and AnyJunk both offer a same day service, although AnyJunk also offers ‘collect within 2 hours’ in London for a £20 premium.  In terms of arrival windows, Clearabee offers 2 hour arrival slots for a £20 premium.  AnyJunk offers ‘one hour’ time slots for a £20 premium.

Landfill Diversion

AnyJunk’s average landfill diversion is a bit more than 95%. It’s unclear how much waste Clearabee sends to landfill.  Their website doesn’t provide any figures except to say they track their waste to the transfer station they tip at and that some of those transfer stations achieve 100% diversion.  Perhaps they just want to keep the overall percentage a secret – which seems a bit strange for a company that disposes of waste!

More Information About Clearabee

Clearabee was founded in 2012 and has its head office in Birmingham. It is owned by Daniel Long and Rob Linton. Their fleet of collection vehicles comprises mainly Luton vans (like the ones used by removal firms for A to B removal work) and slide door transit vans (typically used by couriers for parcel delivery). They don’t have any depots because all the vehicles are parked outside their employees’ homes overnight which makes a lot of sense for saving on parking costs. 

In-house Teams

Clearabee makes quite a big deal about their collection teams all being ‘in-house’, meaning they employ them. We’re not sure why this is so important.  Does employing people make them nicer or safer? Once upon a time, we had our own direct fleet, employing over 100 people.  Today we work with Service Partners, trusted local businesses that undertake the collections for us.  All of their crews are very presentable, polite and hard-working.  That’s why we partner with them – and presumably why we get such nice feedback from customers.
