Company Profile

The company was formed by David May in 1992 after working in the house clearance industry with his family for the previous 10 years. He took over the firm and built it into what it is today. David works hugely on recommendation, word of mouth and referrals and as such has a superb reputation in Sussex.

He prides himself on putting his customers needs as a top priority. David works hard to make sure you’re satisfied with his service, and because of this many of his customers are repeat customers and referrals. DMHCC has all the experience and resources required to carry out all kinds of house clearance work in Sussex, and we partner other businesses locally who are licences waste carriers to clear and remove household goods and waste in East and West Sussex. We leave your property clean and tidy so that it is ready to transfer to a landlord for end of lease, sale of property or new tenants.

Tipper Van

Two vehicles available

Having two versatile Tipper vans available means we can get to you quickly and clear your house, flat, garage or shed with ease.

Luton Van

For the bigger items

For any bigger jobs with larger furniture, white goods and household pieces that we can recycle we'll be along with the Luton Van.

We love helping local people clear their property quickly and for an affordable price

    David May and his son Lewis helped us with a two stage move back to London which involved taking furniture into storage and then later on to several other sites. They were on time, fast and efficient, and at the same time careful and friendly. I have no hesitation in recommending them.

    I have been recommending the services of David and the House Clearance company for over 20 years now. We have found David and his team to be personable, efficient and easy to communicate with. They provide a great service at a reasonable price our clients’ feedback has been nothing but positive. Properties were left clean and clear and the correct items were removed/left. I look forward to recommending David’s superb service for the next 20 years.

  • Austin Gray
    I am the principal of an antique and fine art valuation company and we are regularly instructed to sell the contents of a property. After all valuable items have been removed for sale we require the services of a clearance company and in nearly 40 years of business I have never found anybody better than David May from The House Clearance Centre. It is important for my company’s reputation to be able to completely rely upon and trust the firm that I recommend to complete this important part of the process and David has never let me down. He always provides a highly efficient and professional service and I cannot recommend him highly enough.

    I have used David both on a personal basis & for Cales. I have always found him to be very reliable, trustworthy & friendly. We have recommended David to a number of clients as well as friends & will continue to do so. The feedback we have had from clients is always complementary. The way that David & his team deal with sometimes sensitive situations is appreciated. The properties are also left clean & tidy. We are happy to continue to recommend David May.
