Carpet removal costs
The price for a licensed waste contractor to remove carpet, offcuts and underlay for one room from your home is £20 - £80 including VAT.
Prices vary depending on the size of the room, if the carpet is wet or dry, how soon you require a collection, if you're disposing of any other waste types in the same collection. It also depends on the time and day of collection, and where it's being collected from. For more help on how to efficiently remove your carpet, we've created a Carpet Disposal Guide to help!
How to lower the cost of carpet collection
There are a few different ways you can keep costs down:
- Keep the carpet dry - wet carpet is heavier than dry and will make the collection more expensive
- Uplift the carpet yourself - this will save the collector time & save you money
- Cut the carpet into smaller sections and roll it up to make it easier for the collector to carry and load the van
- Leave your carpet as close as possible to the van so they don't have far to carry it to the van
