Set A Decluttering Goal

Before starting, be sure to create a plan. Regardless of the number of rooms or how much clutter is in need of removal or organisation, planning is key. Knowing which room you’re starting with, as well as the type of clutter involved. A plan can involve the tactics of how you’re going to remove the waste, the routes taken throughout the household for larger objectives etc. 

As you go through the rooms and spaces in your house, you will need a system for sorting the items you find. You can create your own method, or use one of the most popular organizational tips: the “Three-Box Method.” This method forces you to make a decision item by item, so you don’t end up with a bigger mess than the one you started with. 

Items That Won’t Go Into House Clearance

The first category will be the ‘keep’ collection. Items in this category are most valuable to you or family members. For optimisation, these items should be stored neatly in some form of container or drawer, with labels if desired.

House Clearance Collection Pile

Store items that are in need of throwing away or handing out. Clearing out certain areas of the house may result in this category being a large one. Again, with services from Colson Transport, items are easily disposable.


Items that you may want to keep, but may also not have a daily use will fit into this category. Be sure to label your stored boxes.
