Are you looking to move to Southampton or the Hampshire region? With costs to account for and countless phone calls to make to bill providers, 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 specific skill set and whether you are looking to move to a larger home or downsize, or move to the other end of the country or simply over the road, it will require careful planning to ensure everything runs smoothly.
As members of the removals industry’s regulators, the British Association of Removers, FIDI & OMNI, our White & Company Southampton 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.
A vibrant port city dating back to the Norman Conquest, Southampton’s rapid industrialisation and maritime importance has seen it continue to rise as both a major UK exporter and significant employment and cultural hub in the South of England.

Just 75 miles from London and accessible by motorway or rail, the city maintains excellent transport connections with the capital, as well as other major cities in the South.
Industrial heritage aside, the city is also one of the UK’s greenest, boasting over 40 parks and 326 acres of wooded and open spaces.
You also have access to the stunning New Forest National Park, the South Downs, and the seaside town of Bournemouth. Surrounded by medieval town walls and Norman churches, Southampton has a rich past to discover also.
