Steve Blaker

House Clearance Manager

Steve has been with the team since May 2012 and started as our van driver. Steve moved to Devon in 2012 and prior to coming to Hospiscare was an MOT Station Manager. Steve enjoys all things DIY and mechanical and is the master of getting large, odd shaped furniture out of anywhere in one piece. He is also our ‘top-shelf specialist’ as, due to his height, he can reach what everyone else can’t.

Sheldon Wood

House Clearance Drivers Mate

Sheldon, affectionately known as 'Woody' joined the team in September 2017. He was previously a Tank Crewman and served with the Army for 5 years. He enjoys working out and often goes to the gym before and after work! He is now our 'small space' expert as he is vertically challenged!!

Russell Hann

House Clearance Van Driver (Partials)

Russell has recently joined the team as part of our expansion plan. He drives the Partial clearance van along with his drivers mate Chris Hopkins who is camera shy. Prior to working for Hospiscare Russell worked for Havills installing white goods. He too has joined Steve as a top shelf specialist due to his height. Chris came to us via an agency and worked in our warehouse at Marsh Barton, this furnished him with invaluable knowledge in the sorting department.

Richard Cann

House Clearance Van Driver

Richard has recently joined the team as the House Clearance Van Driver. Previously he has run his own auto repair business for many years. Richard is the teams Karma.

Terry Guard

Self Employed Man and Van

Although Terry is self employed we like to think of him as part of the team, he has carried out work for Hospiscare on and off for many years. He often step in as an extra pair of hands when the team needs him. He is a workaholic, nothing is too much trouble for him and a very genuine guy.
