Review of Clearabee compared to AnyJunk
We’ve nothing against some healthy competition – it keeps us on our toes. One competitor, Clearabee, likes to advertise on Google when people search our brand name, so we thought we’d provide a quick comparison about how they stack up. This review also serves as a sort of Clearabee discount code, because our rates are more competitive in several ways.
Clearabee Prices compared to AnyJunk
Volume rates: Clearabee’s web prices increase cubic yard by cubic yard (ie. 1, 2, 3, 4 cubic yards etc). We used to charge like this but a few years ago we shifted to larger size increments (ie. single item, 2 yards, 4 yards, 7 yards, etc) to make it easier for customers to estimate the correct size at booking (and hence how much to pay) and minimise the chance of a pricing surprise when the crew arrives on site.
Furniture items: Both companies have rates to remove and dispose of single items of furniture on a standalone basis and the table below shows how we compare. AnyJunk prices are a substantial discount to Clearabee.
|Furniture item collection||Clearabee||AnyJunk||Discount|
|2 Seater Sofa||£79.99||£50.00||37%|
|3 Seater Sofa||£89.99||£60.00||33%|
Skip bag collections: Both companies offer a skip bag collection service. The table below compares them. AnyJunk is a LOT cheaper.
|Skip bag collection||Clearabee||AnyJunk||Discount|
|1 yard / small skip bag||£99.99||£90.00||10%|
|1.5 yard / medium skip bag||£129.99||£110.00||15%|

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. Clearabee’s collection vehicles comprise 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. None of the vehicles are HGVs, which means no O license concerns or tachographs, but payload (ie. ability to carry weight) is limited.
