    • Over 240 fully owned vehicles
    • Employ more than 450 fully trained staff
    • 19 location across the UK
    • Founder members of the British Association of Removers, FIDI & OMNI

    The Present

    Today White & Company is one of the largest privately owned removals companies in the UK.

    We continue the traditions founded in 1871 by proving an outstanding customer service and commitment to the environment. We are able to offer every aspect of the removals industry including:

    Our Removals & Storage Services

    Free Survey

    A surveyor will conduct a free home survey to establish the precise volume of effects being transported. This involves observing your current home room-by-room, carefully noting items to be transported or exported, whilst recording all details via electronic tablet. Alternatively, you can conduct a video survey yourself.

    Packing Service

    Once you agree to proceed, we’ll set a moving date with you for our removals team and vehicles to arrive at your residence for the big day. Our fully trained removals team will export pack and wrap all items being shipped in special breathable bubble wrap and double-lined cardboard boxes, ensuring your prized possessions are suitably protected.

    Secure Storage

    White & Company owns and operates its own short and long term warehouse facilities strategically placed in 19 locations throughout the United Kingdom, providing secure, clean and dry containerised storage in personal dedicated storage containers. This ensures all your items are stored and protected from damage prior to despatch.

    Overseas Shipping

    Upon arrival at a local depot, all goods are transferred to the export warehouse to await loading onto a container. The container is booked onto the first available vessel destined to the closest port of entry to your final destination. Once your shipment arrives at the port of destination, your goods will pass through customs prior to despatch to your new home.

    Local & National Removals

    We provide an award winning local & national house removals service across the whole of the UK. With a fleet of over 265 vehicles and 19 branches strategically located in some of the UK's most popular towns and cities in close proximity to major ports, we provide a fast and reliable house removals service whether you're moving locally or nationally.


    We provide a comprehensive range of insurance options to suit all needs and budgets. Whether you're transporting just a handful of items or an entire shipment of goods overseas, we're sure to have the perfect insurance option available to protect your household goods during transit from point of origin to final destination.
