Services

House Clearance Service

Lindsay Burns & Company provides a complete House Clearance Service. This includes valuation, inventory, removal of valuable items to auction, clearance and disposal of unsaleable items, storage and distribution of items to beneficiaries where applicable. Clearance are undertaken in a discreet and professional manner and properties are left in a clean and tidy state. We have the correct licences in place and will provide boxes, packaging and other specific materials as part of the service. We have our own transport which is a MaxiMover custom built low loader luton van which enables us to arrange the uplift of items at your convenience. 

This is a bespoke service tailored to meet your requirements as we understand the complexities of clearing a property or estate. The House Clearance Service is available to Private clients, Solicitors, Executors and other Professional Advisors.

Transport & Auction Logistics

Lindsay Burns & Company has its own MaxiMover custom built low loader luton van which is available for uplift of consignments for auction, delivery of purchased lots or transfer property between locations. The van is operated by experienced porters who understand the importance of handling clients property.

Removals & Storage

Lindsay Burns & Company is experienced at undertaking removals and will provide all relevant packing and other specific materials. We are also able to provide short and long term storage solutions for clients property. This is a bespoke service tailored to meet your requirements and often applies to larger estates and executries.

Valuations

Lindsay Burns & Company provides a confidential, prompt and competitively priced valuation service tailored to meet the requirements of our clients whether they are Private Individuals, Solicitors, Executors or other Professional Advisors. Our valuations are presented in a clear, concise and professionally bound document with supporting images where required. We are experienced in preparing the following types of valuations.

Sale Valuation

We offer free verbal advice for potential vendors. Smaller items can be valued at our offices or a home visit can be arranged to conduct a walk round valuation. This is often the most convenient way to access house contents, collections or larger items. We also hold regular valuation days at our offices and in external locations where items can be appraised.

Inheritance Tax Valuations/ Probate Valuations

We have the knowledge and experience to provide Solicitors and Executors with detailed valuations for Inheritance Tax and Probate purposes. Valuations are carried out promptly and discreetly and comply with the requirements of HMRC.

Insurance Valuations

Lindsay Burns & Company has the experience to provide detailed valuations of Antiques and Fine Art for insurance purposes. Supporting digital images can be supplied for both you and your insurers.

Family Division/ Willing Buyer – Willing Seller

Using our discretion we can prepare valuations for family division and willing buyer – willing seller which allows chattels to be assessed accordingly.

Valuation Administration

We understand the importance of valuation administration and have systems in place which are managed by dedicated administrators who process the accounts. When goods are entered for sale we allocate the consignment a unique property reference number which is followed by the item number from the valuation. This allows us to track the progress of items through sale and produce reports in item number order which correspond to the valuation. Valuations can be annotated with details of items to be stored for beneficiaries, items to be disposed of or items being kept. Our experience has proved this to be the most efficient way of handling clients property.

Accessibility

Our valuers are available to undertake valuations throughout Scotland and further afield as and when required.
