Before you start

You need to provide us with a list of items you want us to uplift. You can't add any additional items to your list after your request has been submitted.  

For insurance reasons, we'll only uplift the items on this list. 

Bagged items like rubble and tiles must be in the appropriate strength bag or double bagged. 

You need to tell us where outside the items will be left for us to uplift. We'll not enter properties including garages to uplift items. 

Valid card details are needed as you must pay for this service as part of your online request. 

How to request 

Our next available slots will be available from 2PM Tuesday 19th October

What happens next

Once booked, your collection should take place between Wednesday and Friday of the following week. Please note during busier periods this could take up to 10 days

White goods are collected separately and may be collected at a different time and day to any other general items.
