The surveyor will need to conduct a home survey to ascertain the volume of effects being shipped.

This involves him/her walking through the property room by room noting what items are to be exported and recording it on his electronic tablet.


White & Company has storage facilities at 19 storage locations throughout the UK all providing secure containerised storage in personal dedicated storage containers.


When the client has accepted the quoted price and a move date has been secured, the vehicle and removal team will arrive at residence.

The team will proceed to export pack and wrap all items being shipped in special breathable bubble wrap.


Upon arrival at your local depot, all effects are transferred to the export warehouse to await loading into a 20ft or 40ft container.

The container is booked with the shipping line onto the first available vessel destined to the closest port of entry to your final destination.
