An asset clearance service
is a sustainable and cost-effective way of removing unwanted furniture and other assets from your hotel, restaurant, pub, or other hospitality establishment. This may be because you’re refurbishing your hotel
, upgrading old furniture, or replacing broken or damaged assets.
To keep up in a competitive industry, hotels must make sure every asset, from beds to bathroom fixtures, are consistently maintained. This also means upgrading when necessary - even things as simple as rusty towel rails or wobbly chairs can negatively impact a guest’s experience. When your assets can’t be fixed, it’s time to get rid of them: and the best way to do that is through the use of an asset clearance service.
If you have just one or two unwanted assets, you may choose to remove them yourself, especially if they’re relatively small and easy to transport. However, it’s what you do with the assets after they’ve been removed which can throw up some problems. One of our main priorities as a hotel clearance company is to keep unwanted assets out of landfill wherever possible, whether through selling, donating, or recycling them.
If you’re clearing out entire rooms or even properties, an asset clearance service is essential to get the job done quickly and efficiently to minimise business downtime. We can also help you remove large or heavy items, which can be dangerous if not removed properly.
There are many advantages of using an asset clearance service like The Hotel Clearance Company. If we haven’t convinced you yet, keep reading…
The process of asset clearance involves many stages - the service we provide is far from a simple turn-up-and-pick-up solution. Instead, we work with you prior to the big day to plan an efficient removal strategy, and then we get to work removing and storing your unwanted hotel assets using our secure storage facilities. We’ll then focus on moving the assets along, whether through our partnerships with specialist auction houses, through our list of regular buyers, or by recycling. You can then receive money for your unwanted assets after they are sold.
Instead of paying separate companies to provide a service for each of these stages of the furniture clearing process, including the cost of labour, using a furniture clearance service is much more cost efficient.
The costs involved in renting storage space can quickly rack up, especially if you’re storing large items and aren’t sure how long you’ll need to store them. If you’re planning to move the assets along yourself after removal, for example by selling, you’ll have to keep paying for storage if you don’t get a sale immediately. Using a specialised asset removal service means these costs are included, so you know what to expect from the start.
Quick, think: if you were to try and sell a piece of hotel furniture today, who would you contact to sell it to? Chances are you don’t have too many buyers in mind, or if you do, you likely don’t have time to contact them all. That’s what we’re here for. As an asset clearance service provider, we have a ‘little black book’ of regular, qualified buyers who consistently buy our clients’ unwanted assets through private treaty sales, as well as partnerships with leading specialist auction houses. This means we’re able to maximise your financial return on your assets.
To save money on storage, we often see companies removing their unwanted assets and simply disposing of them at landfill. Sure, this might be quick and simple, but this method has a big impact on the environment which should be avoided as much as possible. Recycling just a single plastic bottle can save enough energy to power a lightbulb for more than three hours. Now consider how much energy can be saved through recycling or rehoming hundreds of unwanted hotel assets.
Our service aims to reduce the environmental impact of hospitality asset clearance whilst maintaining a fast and efficient removal process for you.
