Hoarder Cleanout 2018-01-26T12:32:54+00:00

Some people just have a tough time letting go of their stuff.

Creating income for an estate

Hoarder clean-outs entail digging, separating and masks with gloves, and we are not afraid.
When a hoarder clean-out is necessary, we can quickly identify trash from treasure. You just have to develop a system.

Hoarder Cleanout

For Loved Ones Who Just Can’t
Pass Up A Good Deal

Our job is not just to clean up but to create income. We offer an interior and/or exterior clean up service to remove trash and debris and separate salable items. Don’t ever underestimate the value of a hoarders belongings. It is amazing what the general public will pay you to haul off. They can’t pass up a good deal either.  Take a look at some of the hoarder homes we have cleaned up. Clean up can take anywhere from three days to two months. We have created anywhere from $15,000 to $70,000 in merchandise sales, based on volume, in homes that have been thought to be trash outs alone.

Note: This picture is one of our really happy clients who purchased a man and woman’s monkey hair wedding headdresses from one of our estate sales. He was really excited. 

Here are a few before and after pictures of hoarder homes we have done.

Endless Trash and Treasure: Tackling it one bag at a time.

What others thought was trash, we turn into cash.

In this situation — tons of clothing, household items and thousands of filled grocery bags, including gold jewelry. It was stacked more than 6 feet in some areas. Having boxes ready to pack salable items and a trash can handy is the key. You just have to get a system down.

There were 6 of us working a total of 18 days to clear trash and find the floor.  It is all about the system. Agree, it is a lot of work but it feels so good when we’re done and the custom high fives you. The customer who worked along side of us for all 18 days and worked as hard as any worker we have seen.

There was no clear entry into the home. There was a mass of things blocking the front door. We’ve seen houses full of trash before but we have never seen the front door blocked from entry. That’s one way to keep the bad guys out.

Voila, a few hours later and the job really gets interesting once we can open the front door. Trash 6-7 feet high. We had to dig our way in. Interesting. Many empty eaten-thru bags of chocolate and a dead rats nearby.

Hoarder Cleanout Before | Salton Sea

This job included two homes, a 10,000 sq. ft. warehouse, an old Chevron station and 8- 40 ft. sea crates, all packed. This job took two months, 4 workers and buyers who were willing to travel from San Diego to Salton Sea to dig thru tons of stuff. Whatever we didn’t sell onsite we rented U-haul trucks to take to an auction back in San Diego.

This home was a mess, dead animals and an unfixable smell the entire job. However, in this home we were able to generate a lot of income for the estate. A huge amount of income on this whole estate. It was well worth all of the bending and lifting. Yes, we were tired but great to finish in a two month timeline.
