Our company was founded in 1898 by John Frederick White, an experienced member in the removal trade that set out solo. With his beginnings in Cromwell Street, Nechells, in a horse-drawn cart, removals were a far cry from what they are today. No matter the weather, Mr White would rise at dawn to tend to the two Shire horses in the stables, getting ready for business. There has been plenty of journeys, hours on the road and hard work. This formed the foundations from which our business’ success sprung. With the progression of time, larger premises were required. Edward White seized the reins for the following generation and steam wagons became the new mode of transport. Steadily, the company expanded and became known as “The Removal People” in and around the local areas.
By the 1950s, Whites had outgrown their premises, and more storage space was necessary. The company moved to Great Lister Street where we are still based today. Edward White’s only child Margaret, along with her husband William Kitchen, was next to inherit the business and started running Whites in the early 1960s. Among our many large projects, perhaps the most notable would be the removal and storage of the contents of Aston Hall in the 1980s. We made crates to hold numerous ornaments and 47 pieces of artwork, as well as all the furniture including a sizeable marble table. Bill and Margaret’s sons, Nigel and Richard, took over the business around this time. White’s “The Removal People” continued to thrive and in 2011, Luke and Jamie, two of Richards sons, became the fifth generation and see only prosperity for the future.
