Are you moving and require removals services in Bournemouth? In a recent survey, two thirds of people voted moving to a new house at the top of their list of life stresses. Experts suggest that moving can trigger more stress and anxiety than relationship breakdowns, divorce or even starting a new job!
Make no doubt, moving home represents a serious change and transition in life. We all crave routine and familiarity and when you relocate this can seriously disrupt those feelings of security. It is important to remember that it’s normal to feel overwhelmed when you have so much to organise, especially if moving with children.
At White & Company, we draw on over 145 years of experience in the removals industry to deliver a bespoke customer experience. We strive to ensure each of our moves are tailored to suit your individual requirements and are carried out with the upmost degree of professionalism, honesty and care, leaving you free to arrange all the other practical aspects of your move.

Voted the UK’s Best Seaside Town in the British Travel Awards 2017, Bournemouth offers stunning golden beaches, scenic coastal walks and plenty of leisure activities for all the family to enjoy, such as surfing, kayaking and water skiing. And if that isn’t enough, the town also enjoys an average of 7.7 hours of sunshine on a summer’s day, well above the UK average.
The bustling town centre is a hive of activity, with excellent nightlife and a wide range of eateries, from traditional fish and chip shops to high end cafes and restaurants. The coastal villages of Boscombe, Southbourne and Westbourne are dotted neatly along the coast and offer a range of boutique shops and vintage fashion outlets.
Bournemouth is also extremely well connected and is just under two hours away from London by train. It is ideally located between the stunning woodlands of the New Forest, the Dorset countryside and the crumbling Jurassic coastline, making it an excellent place to explore the best of Britain’s nature.
According to a recent survey, Dorset records the sixth lowest crime rate across England and Wales, which combined with the excellent options for schooling across Bournemouth and the county makes it an excellent choice for young families looking to relocate.
If you are planning a day out, there is no shortage of things to do in and around Bournemouth.
Bournemouth is close to the Jurassic Coast, a UNESCO world heritage site where it is possible to find the remnants of Dinosaur fossils, hence the name! The South West Coast path is well maintained and open all year round making it ideal for walking, running or cycling along the crumbling cliffs.
There are plenty of action packed activities for families in the city centre, from amusement arcades, to a 6D cinema. Or why not let your imagination soar to new heights by taking a ride on the Bournemouth Balloon which offers stunning views of the surrounding landscape. The yearly Air show, featuring the RAF red arrows flying over the beach is also not one to be missed.
