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.
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.
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.
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, easy access in safe, dry and secure personally dedicated storage containers.

Taking great pride in the history and traditions of its industrial past, Telford is the largest town in Shropshire and one of the fastest-growing towns in the UK, due to its connections to the M54 and closeness to the employment hub of Birmingham.
Named after the Scottish-born civil engineer, Thomas Telford, the town is unique in that it is a planned ‘New Town’, designed to relocate populations in poor or bombed-out housing following the Second World War.
As such it enjoys a purposely built infrastructure designed to maintain industrial and business growth.
Telford’s economic performance, as measured by GVA per capita, does not disappoint and has tended to out-perform those achieved nationally, as well as the West Midlands and other local regions.
In addition to a thriving manufacturing sector, an expanding tourism sector and enviable research and development facilities, large corporates such as EDS and Fujitsu also now call Telford home.
As well as a colourful industrial history, Telford has created a residential environment structured towards facilitating enhanced leisure and living standards.
The first phase of the £250 million Southwater redevelopment project is now complete and is set to transform the town centre into an 18-hour shopping and leisure centre.
Excellent leisure facilities combined with a good selection of high performing state comprehensives make it a natural choice for families, whereas, its excellent local connections to Birmingham, Shrewsbury and other major towns and cities make it an attractive commuter option for young professionals.
Telford town centre’s regeneration has seen it become an attractive place with plenty of things to do for all ages and interests.
The world-famous Ironbridge, a UNESCO heritage site and the Telford Steam Railway both pay homage to the town’s industrial roots and are well worth a visit.
From the Wrekin hills to the meandering River Severn meanders which cascades all the way through to Ironbridge, Telford is awash with natural wonders to go out and explore.
To the east is a glorious if somewhat, unimaginatively named 450-acre ‘Town Park’ where play equipment, as well as bicycles are available for hire.
The town park is also home to Wonderland, a great option for entertaining small children with nursery rhymes and fairy tales brought to life by actors. Nearby Hoo Farm Animal Kingdom also makes a great and educational day out.
For the town’s size it has many semi-professional and amateur sports teams to get behind, from the regular football and rugby teams, to ice hockey and American football leagues. The ice rink is also available for people to learn how to skate.
For a more comprehensive list of things to do if moving to Telford visit:
You will find a huge selection of properties for sale in the area. There are older more traditional period homes with a cottage feel, located in the original part of the town, as well as modern properties in the Lawley and Lightmoor villages.
These villages are home to new developments with all the modern amenities, popular with younger families. Further outside of Telford there are some very expensive larger homes boasting equestrian facilities, barn conversions and extensive acreage.
The current average value is £174,142 and the average asking price paid is £210,378. Values in the area are rising and during the past year have increased by 5.95%.

Thanks to recent redevelopment in the town, there is a very good choice of schools in Telford. Thomas Telford school, a City Technology College, is the country’s top comprehensive for GCSE results and has been consistently rated as ‘outstanding’ by Ofsted. Both Wombridge and St Georges CofE are well thought of primary schools in the local area.
