Deceased estates

This service is ideal for families or executors of wills who need to clear the entire contents of an estate or property. If you’ve already done the clearing and just want to sell the furniture please go to our “We Buy” page for all information.

Dealing with the entire contents of a deceased estate can be a daunting and extremely emotional task. Especially at a time when you’re mourning the loss of a loved one.

Families often rush in to clear the home without thinking it through and don’t have the knowledge or resources on how to do the job properly. It’s understandable as it’s not most peoples area of expertise.

They’ve have helped hundreds of families all over Melbourne and Regional Victoria to carefully and efficiently clear deceased estates. This helps to eliminate the burden on the family giving more time to coordinate all the other tasks associated with this difficult time.

Why use Mrs. Secondhand’s deceased estate clearance service?

We are the alternative to engaging a rubbish removal business to clear the property. Rubbish removal companies can be costly, they often sell valuable items without your knowledge and throw out salvageable items adding to unnecessary landfill. You also run the risk of losing priceless items such as jewellery or photos.

Mrs. Secondhand offer a cost effective alternative that gives you the opportunity to be compensated for the goods that we can sell in our warehouse shop or online. We donate other items to not-for-profit charities and artists who re-purpose the goods. We also ensure that any items such as jewelry, photos and money found in the process is returned.

We can work alongside family members to do this work or we work independently, we want to reassure families their loved ones possessions/family home is treated with the respect that it deserves.

How do we clear a deceased estate?

We sort and pack up the entire household contents including sheds, garages and under houses and put all items into 4 major categories:

  1. What you want to keep
  2. What is sellable
  3. What is donate-able
  4. What is rubbish.

We also neatly pack the items you want to keep.

We do our best to donate items not sellable in our warehouse shop. This reduces landfill, helps others in need and reduces the cost of rubbish disposal. We have years of knowledge & resources at our fingertips which most people don’t even know exist.

How much does it cost to clear a deceased estate?

You can make some great savings with our service because of our ability to resell and donate most of the furniture and household items. To give an indicative idea of timings and costs, most deceased estate clearances can take up to 1 – 4 days, depending on the size of the home and how much contents there is. Including rubbish disposal and after we’ve purchased items for resale clients can pay anywhere between $500 – $12,000.

Most of our competitors quote between $5,000 – $15,000 with most of the home contents going to landfill or resale without your knowledge.
