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.

Removals to Nottingham

Are you looking to move to Nottingham or the surrounding areas of the East Midlands? The safe passage of your personal belongings from your current house to your new abode is likely to be high on your list of priorities.

Why Move to Nottingham

Perhaps best known for its links to the legendary heroics of Robin Hood of Sherwood Forest, Nottingham is in modern times a thriving metropolis in the East Midlands. During the Industrial Revolution, much of Nottingham’s prosperity was founded on the textile industry but today its major sectors are digital media, life sciences and retail and leisure among others.

In a recent survey carried out by The Independent, Nottingham was voted one of the Best Places in The UK To Make A Living. Its economy is the seventh largest in the UK, as measured by GDP and although wages are less than the capital and other industrial cities, Nottingham has gained newly held fame as the ‘saver friendly’ alternative. More and more people are escaping to cities like Nottingham where industries are on the rise and the cost of living hasn’t caught up, allowing them to pocket more at the end of the month.

With extra cash in your pocket there are plenty of ways to spend your leisure time in Nottingham. Head to the centre of town and you can find the Capital FM Arena, which hosts major music concerts, or source out the up and coming talent at the famous Rock City venue.

The city’s bustling independent shopping scene attracts people from all over the region and operates unwittingly above a network of over 800 caves carved out in the Dark Ages. The city has a proud sporting history and was named England’s ‘first City of Football’ in 2014, ahead of Manchester. Cricket lovers can also pay a visit to Trent Bridge to watch the best fast and spin bowlers participate in one day internationals.

Property Prices

House prices in Nottingham have seen a dip in value by 1.95% over the past year. The average property price is currently £195,192 with the price actually paid £194,448. The highest value streets are Peache Way and Beeston Fields Drive where properties sell for between £1 – £2 million-pounds.

Now is a good time to buy with property prices projected to surge in the East Midlands region over the next five years. Edwalton, Beeston and Bramcote are popular suburban areas which have spiked a lot of interest of late.

If you are interested in purchasing a brand-new home, there are currently 21 new development sites spread over the city and surrounding area. Aslakr Park is an exclusive development of new 3, 4 & 5 bedroom new homes which although set in the rural village location of Aslockton is only 20 minutes away from the city centre.

Below are a few to view:

Working in Nottingham

 

 

Nottingham was the centre of a thriving export trade in religious sculptures made from Nottingham Alabaster before becoming a pioneer in the textile industry, as well as bicycle manufacturing (notably Raleigh bikes), and the tobacco industries.

 

Today Nottingham is the East Midlands premier commercial, retail, financial and business centre, and the city plays a distinctive role in the UK’s national and regional economic growth. The retail sector in particular is pivotal to the city’s economy and one of its major employers. The city also has a reputation for being enterprising and in 2011 the Nottingham Enterprise Zone was created with further plans for new business park for aerospace, rail and automotive technology.

 

Many large companies have their headquarters in the city, these include Boots (now known as Alliance Boots), Pedigree pet foods, Siemens, Vision Express and Specsavers. Among the science-based industries within the city is BioCity. The UK’s biggest bioscience innovation and incubation centre, houses around 80 science-based companies. It comes as no surprise therefore that Nottingham was one of the top 10 cities in the UK for job growth from 2004-2013, as well as having the largest number of new start-up companies in the UK during 2014-15.
