Move to Newcastle with Us in 4 Easy Steps!
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.
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.
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.
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.

Why Move to Newcastle
One of the safest cities in England, Newcastle upon Tyne, or Newcastle as it is often simply referred to, is situated on the northern bank of the River Tyne. Home to the Angel of the North, the Gateshead Millennium Bridge and of course its avidly followed football team, Newcastle United, ‘the Toon’ became a famous industrial port with a thriving coal mining industry in the nineteenth century.
The coal mines may long be closed but the city remains extremely proud of its heritage and thanks to an economic resurgence has plenty of reason to be happy about its future. Living costs are low compared with many other UK cities and house prices in the North East region are considered to be some of the most affordable in the country. Excellent rail links mean you can also live in nearby Gateshead or neighbouring towns and commute to work, or vice versa. London is under 3 hours away by train and Leeds and Edinburgh just half that time.
Friendlier than London and smaller and more compact than Manchester, Newcastle is easy to navigate and is packed full of charm and character. Newcastle’s residents, or Geordies’ as they are known, are a very friendly bunch who will no doubt help you settle into life in this vibrant cosmopolitan city.
The Bigg Market is the heart of Newcastle’s world famous nightlife and has enough restaurants, bars and pubs to satisfy just about anyone’s partying requirements. For a quieter vibe, Newcastle’s splendid art-deco cinema, The Tyneside also has a splendid array of cafes to choose from. You can eat cuisine from Italy, India, Poland, Greece and Vietnam in the city, to name but a few. If that’s not enough to get your worldly fix, you can hop on the DFDS ferry in North Shields one evening and be in the Dutch capital of Amsterdam in time for breakfast.
Working in Newcastle
According to the UK Census, the largest industry in Newcastle is Health with almost 16 % of jobs for people aged between 16 and 64 in this area. Education, defence, public administration and retail also attract a high number of employees.
The largest company based in Newcastle is the public transport juggernaut The Go-Ahead Group, the North East’s largest provider of passenger transport. Among other top companies based in the city are Bellway housebuilders, The Sage Group and Virgin Money Holdings.
Local government has revealed huge plans for the city which are going to transform the city centre and surrounding infrastructure. The plans include a new and modern highway system and renovations of the current Metro system. Priority is being given to improvements for cyclists, to encourage a cleaner city centre and around £389 million will be spent on the project. This will provide much needed jobs in socially deprived areas and hopefully, will attract more businesses into Newcastle.
Based on recent research undertaken by Total Money (via the Independent), the city came 16th out of 64 when it comes to salaries. It found that the average monthly take home salary is £1,728, which considered alongside an average monthly mortgage repayment of £604 provides residents with plenty of spending power.

One out of every six residents in the city is a student, which contributes to the youthful community spirit of the city.
