A Short History of Wolverhampton

The Directors of Wolverhampton Removals and Storage have over 36 years’ experience in our industry, and over 36 years providing our excellent services to home owners in the Wolverhampton and West Midlands area. Our pride in our city is reflected in the name of our company.

Wolverhampton is a metropolitan borough in the West Midlands that has been thriving for hundreds of years. It was one of the important market towns for wool trade since the 13th-14th centuries. During the Industrial Revolution, the city became a major part of mining coal, limestone and more, and production of steel, japanned ware, jewellery, motorbikes and cars. In fact, Wolverhampton manufacturers made the first car to reach land speeds of over 200mph!

Since its beginnings in the engineering, mining and wool industries, Wolverhampton has become the second largest urban area in the UK, with a population of around 250,000 people! In the year 2000, Wolverhampton became 1 of 3 towns in the UK to be granted city status, making us a “Millenium city”! We have since stayed true to our roots with large engineering and aerospace industries, although in 2008, most of the economy came from the service sector. 75% the city's employees were working in this area.

We also have great art and cultural scenes. You can experience old and new forms of art culture here, with the Wolverhampton Art Gallery, Wolverhampton Grand Theatre, the Slade Rooms and Light House Media Centre. Many of our artistic buildings and exhibitions have been around since the mid-1800s.

With such a long success story in many industries, as well as great cultural attractions, Wolverhampton is a fantastic new and growing city to live in with plenty of opportunities.
