Moving with Us in 4 Easy Steps!

1 Survey

We feel it is important that you know exactly what your moving costs will be upfront with no nasty surprises. To supply you with an accurate quotation, the first step is for one of our experienced surveyors to visit your home.

The surveyor will conduct a detailed pre-move survey to ascertain the volume of effects being moved. This involves them walking through the property room by room noting on their electronic tablet what items you want to transfer to your new home.

At this point you can discuss any special requirements or questions you may have. Issues such as access to your property or unusual items of furniture which require particular attention can also be discussed. A free no obligation written quotation will follow within 48 hours.

2 Quote

Once the consultation has been carried out, White & Company will always provide a written quotation within 48 hours. Our quotation will always outline exactly what is covered as per your instructions to the surveyor. The quote is our contract. Once you have signed and accepted it, the price is set, so you will know exactly what the bottom line will be.

Guesstimate

If you are not quite at the stage of wanting to receive a visit from our surveyors you can still take advantage of our Guesstimate tool. Just complete the quick estimate form on our website which will give you an approximate idea of the costs involved.

3 Packing

Having been specialists in removals for so long, we can assure you that there is nothing we have not moved. Packing requires a specific skill. By using top quality packaging materials, you have peace of mind that your precious belongings will be well protected and safe, minimising the risk of any breakages or damage during transportation.

When you choose the option of a full packing service, everything will be wrapped, packed and listed on a detailed inventory before being loaded onto the vehicle. You will receive a copy of the inventory once everything is loaded.

4 Moving & Storage

White & Company is able to provide flexible storage solutions. You may need storage whilst you have building works carried out on your new home or you may be moving into rented accommodation for a short time.

Whatever your storage needs may be, whether it is the whole of your home or just a few boxes, we can help. We offer a range of different sized units with competitive prices, easy access in safe, dry and secure personally dedicated storage containers.

Why Move to Brighton

Sometimes referred to as ‘London by Sea’, Brighton is one of the most dynamic, cosmopolitan, and vibrant towns in the UK, widely renowned for its pleasure pier, colourful beach huts and open and tolerant culture. Being only a 50-minute train journey from the capital means you can earn a good salary working in central London and retreat in the evenings to enjoy all the joys of the seaside during your downtime.

Brighton rose to prominence as a health resort and later a weekend getaway for families in search of sunbathing on the beach and the fanfare of the Brighton arcades. It’s not just the fish and chips on the beach which is the major draw to this town however. These days its popularity is attributed to its accessible communities, quirky shopping areas and thriving cultural arts and music scene. Just outside of the city is the stunning Sussex countryside, including the South Downs National Park, an area of outstanding natural beauty and a great spot for cycling and hiking.

Brighton & Hove town council have some very adventurous plans for the town’s future, including seafront development projects totalling over one billion pounds. Investments which are already underway for Brighton & Hove seafront include the British Airways i360, new homes built at Brighton Marina and the rebuilding of the West Street shelter hall. The Community Stadium for Brighton & Hove Albion Football Club is already completed and includes an expansion of educational accommodation and facilities for conferences, meetings and events.
With easy access to the countryside and beautiful properties a mere stones throw away from the beach, it is hard not to become enamoured with Brighton.

It should be noted that the town’s commutable proximity to London and surge in accessible amenities has driven up property prices in the area, although they remain cheaper than the capital, and there are bargains to be had for those willing to venture further afield.

Working in Brighton

The predominant sectors in Brighton’s economy are in retail, education and tourism. The University of Sussex and University of Brighton employ a significant number of workers, as does Gatwick airport. The economy is very diverse and supported by a large number of workers carrying out part time work and flexible hours.

 

The biggest private sector company whose headquarters are in Brighton is American Express with over 3,500 employees working here. The first phase of building a new headquarters for American Express HQ has also been completed and phase two has now been approved which is likely to spell further growth and greater opportunities in the future.

 

The recent rejuvenation of many areas of Brighton has also contributed to a rise in employment in the areas of construction industry, retail and tourism. The Brighton Centre is a popular destination for conferences, exhibitions and trade fairs and income created by events is estimated to be £8 million per year. True to its tourism roots, a further £50 million is generated indirectly by visitors spending money during their stay.

 

As previously mentioned, being only 50 minutes away from London makes Brighton a viable commuter town of choice. In order to avoid the high cost of living in London, many local residents take advantage of the good rail links to the city to work. The journey to either London Victoria and London Bridge station takes only 50 minutes via a regular service.

General Information

Once you have relocated to your new home in Brighton, there is a whole host of important things you need to organise.

Health & Wellbeing

One of the first things you will want to do once you move to Birmingham is register with a local doctor’s practice. Remember to inform your old practice that you are moving to ensure they can send your most up to date records to your new practice.

Schools & Education

Brighton is home to more than 50 schools, from state run to faith schools and independents. It is also a strong provider of higher education and is home to two universities, with campuses in nearby Falmer and Eastbourne.

The city’s primary schools are very good and perform better than the national average. Most have been reported as being ‘Good’ following their latest Ofsted inspections. Among those judged ‘outstanding’ are St Paul’s CofE, St Bartholomew’s CofE and Davigdor infants School.

Brighton’s education is dominated by its two famous private schools, Roedean, a day and boarding school (girls, ages 11 to 18) which sits on a cliff on Roedean Way overlooking Brighton Marina and Brighton College, which is also a day and boarding school (co-ed, ages three to 18).

Hove Park is home to several semi-detached Edwardian and Victorian properties. The area is one of the most affluent in Brighton, with wide open green spaces and has proven popular with young families. Preston Park is also popular with families, in large part thanks to its local links with a range of good quality schools and its own train station.

For young professionals, Kemptown has proven a hit, with its own shopping facilities, vibrant café culture and proximity to the beach. The area has several converted flats on the more affordable scale of the market, either to rent or buy.
