The History of White & Company
The story about us, White & Company. It was back in 1871 that Mr. White started his business in Portsmouth. Our company is still owned by the White family today making it the largest (and possibly the oldest) family owned removals business in the UK with around 200 vehicles and over 450 staff.
About Us – History of White & Company
In those days the company occupied itself transferring passengers’ baggage from the Atlantic liners to and from London. Today we are involved in every aspect of the removals industry including: Domestic, European, and International removals; household goods and archive storage; corporate shipping; and office relocation. We have 16 branches around the UK and the Channel Islands as well as offices in Majorca, Spain and Germany.
