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. Our surveyor will conduct a detailed pre-move survey to ascertain the volume of effects being moved.

The surveyor will visit your home and note any items you want to transfer. There will also be an opportunity to discuss any special requirements or questions you may have.

2 Quote

Once the consultation has been carried out, a free no obligation written quotation will follow within 48 hours. Our quotation will outline exactly what is covered, as per your instructions and a price.

If you are not quite at the stage of wanting to receive a home visit you can still take advantage of our Guesstimate tool. Just complete the quick estimate form on our website to get 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 before. You can rest assured that your personal belongings will be well protected and safe throughout the transportation process.

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. A copy of the inventory will follow shortly after.

4 Moving & Storage

White & Company is also able to provide flexible storage solutions for all your needs. Whether that be storage while you have building works carried out on your new home or while you live in rented accommodation for a period of time.

Whatever your storage needs may be we can help. We offer a range of different sized units with competitive prices and easy access in safe, dry and secure personally dedicated storage containers.

Removals To London

Are you looking to move to London or the surrounding areas? With costs to account for and countless phone calls to make, there is more than enough to start thinking about. One thing you are certainly going to have to consider in plenty of time is how you are going to move your personal belongings to your new home.

Many people underestimate the scale of the task and hire a removals van for a few hours to do it themselves. Only to later come unstuck when they have more items than they first thought, get the timing wrong and end up shelling out more money, or worse still, damage or lose their own goods.

Moving home furnishings requires a specialised skill set. Whether or not you are looking to move to a larger home the other end of the country, or simply downsize and move over the road, it will require careful planning to ensure everything runs smoothly.

As founding members of the removals industry’s regulators, the British Association of Removers, FIDI & OMNI, our White and Company London branch has been moving families in the area for over 145 years. We offer a variety of storage, packing and delivery solutions to meet your specific requirements and make your move stress-free.

Why Move To London

With 270 nationalities calling the capital home and 300 different languages spoken, London is an incredibly multicultural city and has a much more cosmopolitan feel to it than most cities and towns across the rest of the UK. A mixing pot of different sights and smells, diversity is seen not only through its people but throughout its constantly evolving landscape and economy.

A vibrant financial and trading post dating back centuries, London is home to half of the UK’s top 100 listed companies (the FTSE 100) and over 100 of Europe’s 500 largest companies have their headquarters in central London. People flock to London from around the world in search of the best opportunities in a range of different fields, from science and research to arts and fashion.

Steeped in history and tradition, there is truly something for everyone. From world class galleries and celebrated works of gothic architecture round every corner to state of the art sporting and music facilities, London oozes art and culture. You can enjoy high end designer clothing stores, fantastic restaurants, food and clothing markets during the day before replenishing in one of London’s many iconic pubs in the evening or taking in a West End show.

Given the demand for space the city is often mistaken for a concrete jungle. This is far from the case however as London is as much about diverse urban landscapes as it is open spaces. From Hampton Court Palace and Richmond park in the south to Hyde Park and Hampstead Heath north of the river, there is no shortage of places to escape the hustle and bustle and pitch up for a picnic.

Working in London

The city has long been a magnet for people searching for jobs, both nationally and internationally. Depending on your country of origin, you will need to find out what are the legal implications of working in the UK, including visa, tax and work permit requirements.

People from all over the world flock to London to offer their expertise and fresh ideas in exchange for new opportunities and experiences. London’s financial sector is thriving again, and the creative industries are prospering. From publishing to acting, or banking to real estate, the list of opportunities is endless. There are also plenty of job search agencies eager to sign you up.

Competition for places is fierce. To land the job you are seeking, it is always good advice to ensure your CV is up to date and that you have references that can be checked by potential employers.

Things to do in London

Samuel Johnson once remarked that a ‘man who is tired of London is tired of life’. It would appear that the sentiment holds true even today with an abundance of things to see and do in the capital.

You can catch a glimpse of the crown jewels at the Tower of London, escape the London Dungeons or simply bask in the architectural wonder that is St Pauls, an iconic cathedral which withstood the barrage of bombing during wartime to dominate the London skyline. For a touch of contemporary art there is the world-renowned Tate Modern gallery on the Southbank, which maintains several free exhibits all year round to the public.

London is also home to some world class entertainment venues, from the likes of Wembley park and the 02 at Greenwich, to Alexander Palace in North London, each attracting some of the biggest names in music, comedy and sport. In the summer, Wimbledon is a sold out attraction and many people flock to SW19 in their best glad rags for a sip of Pims and to catch a glimpse of some of the biggest names in Tennis, either from the stands or the deck chairs.

Property prices

London is the most expensive place to buy and rent property in the UK. As with all large cities, the closer to the centre you want to live, the higher the price, with properties in the City of Westminster and places like Kensington and Chelsea attracting the biggest price tags.

 

As a guide, you can expect to pay an average of £18,000 per square meter in an expensive area and £8,700 in less central locations. If you intend to rent, the current average monthly rental for a one-bedroom apartment in the centre of the city is £1627. For those venturing further out this drops to £1180.

 

The further out you are from the centre generally the cheaper the rent and the more space you are likely to get. Properties close to major transport hubs such as the tube, DLR or National Railway links often fetch a premium.

 

There are many ways to find somewhere to live in London. The usual and most common way to find a property is via an estate agent. You will be able to find plenty on any high street across the city.

 

With the ever-increasing strength of the Internet, more and more people are searching for properties using online sites such as:

Schools & Education

London is a major global centre of higher education teaching and research and has the largest concentration of higher education institutes in Europe. The choice of schools, colleges and universities is mind blowing.

Choosing the right school will most probably depend on your budget and where you will be living in the city. Obviously, there are plenty of state schools, but also many private and international institutions also.

Most of the primary and secondary schools and further-education colleges in London are controlled by the London boroughs or otherwise state-funded.
