How do we offer free furniture removal to our sellers?


It's all made easier by having our own removal company with a dedicated team of experts and a fleet of lorries and vans for every size of move. Instruct us to sell your home and we will offer you a choice of two options. 


For a commission fee of 1% plus VAT (1.2% inclusive of VAT) we will achieve the best sale price by utilising our database of buyers, advertising on Rightmove, enhanced photography, video tour, accompanied viewings and experienced sale progression. On completion of the sale, we will then move the contents of your home anywhere in the country. With reasonable terms and conditions (see below). 


Should you not require free furniture removal, then we can offer you the same excellent estate agency service at a commission fee of 0.83% plus VAT (1% inclusive of VAT). 


Let’s take the following sale of a three bedroom semi-detached house in Bath as an example. 





The seller chose to have a free removal and so our commission on the sale price of £895,000 was £8,950 plus VAT (£10,740 inclusive of VAT). The removal cost £2,695 plus VAT (£3,234 inclusive of VAT) and so the seller effectively paid a commission of 0.70% plus VAT (0.84% inclusive of VAT). 


Every sale and circumstance is different and there will be times when 0.83% plus VAT (1% inclusive of VAT) is a better offer for some sellers. Please choose the option that suits you best.



Here are those reasonable terms and conditions; 


Our ‘free removal’ offer is the removal of furniture and personal belongings from a property sale completed by Wild & Lye Ltd. and using Wild & Lye Removal Services. 


In exceptional circumstances, and if Wild & Lye are unable to provide a removal date to suit the customer, then the 1% fee inclusive of VAT will be considered an acceptable alternative to the ‘free removal’ offer. 


Offer applies to new sale instructions from May 2016. Subject to a minimum net commission fee of £2,500. 


Contents of the property not to be added to prior to removal day. 


Removal does not include the costs of travel by ferry, boat, plane or toll roads. Nor does it include recycling or disposal fees. 


Removal only from property A to property B simultaneously with no drop-offs or detours. 


Removal does not include staff packing service or containerised storage in the Wild & Lye depot or any other location. 


Wild & Lye Ltd. reserve the right to decline selling instructions if the property is not within the Bath office’s usual catchment area.

For sellers

Since opening in 1990 we have offered an enjoyable and successful estate agency service with no up front fees. Choose between a free removal anywhere in the country or pay no VAT on our 1% sole agency commission rate – only payable on completion of the sale. Online and local advertising together with a well-positioned central Bath office provides us with a steady flow of new sellers and buyers looking for homes and investments in our beautiful city and surrounding villages. Our job is a lot more than just finding a buyer for a property and our many years of experience help to keep everyone focused and informed during the sale process. You will want seasoned negotiators on your side when it comes to ensuring an offer proceeds to a completed sale.





For buyers

We like to offer a good selection of properties for sale to suit most budgets and if we haven't already got what you want to buy then we will do our best to find it for you using our Off-Market Property Search. We are old Bathonians and we have many contacts. You will want to view properties at times to suit you – early mornings, lunch hours, evenings and weekends. That's not a problem. We’re not the usual ‘9 to 5’ type of estate agency and so we aim to be flexible and as helpful as possible.





For landlords

It's not always the first person to view your property who should rent it. This is where a lot of larger agencies get it wrong because they have several staff all trying to hit individual monthly targets without complete emphasis on quality and suitability. We use our skill and judgement to match the best tenant with the most suitable property. 





For tenants

We are fortunate to attract some of the best rental properties in Bath and villages close-by. Our landlords have 24/7 access to the highest rated Bath contractors - people that we have got to know and trust over many years. We want to ensure that your tenancy is a pleasant experience and one that will result in you recommending Wild & Lye to others.





For movers

Our removals and storage division operate from a large depot in Keynsham where we have a fleet of lorries and vans for every size of move. Our removal team are some of the hardest working people you will ever meet. Removals - big or small - all get the same great service and you don't have to sell your property with Wild & Lye to be moved by us (although, if you did, you would be eligible for a free removal anywhere in the country).





...and shakers

When you have made the decision to sell or let your property, you won't want to wait for your estate agent to get going. Our high quality brochures - with enhanced photography and floor plans - are ready to go in 48hrs. Our impressive double-fronted office on the highly visible three-way junction at the end of Bathwick Street in central Bath has a state-of-the-art illuminated window display which is impossible to ignore and all marketing material is prepared in our office so that we have full control over the quality of work. A lot of other agents seem to have forgotten the art of estate agency. We haven't.
