Curtiss and Sons have been moving people in the Portsmouth area for a very long time! We have a long history associated with the city.
To start at the beginning of our history, three family members of the Curtiss family in Portsmouth founded the company in 1871. They built their first offices in Broad Street, Portsmouth before moving to Gun-wharf Road where they won the contract for transporting furniture from London for Handleys and the Landport Drapery Bazaar. Handleys was a Portsmouth shopping institution which stocked a wide range of goods until the 1970’s when it was taken over by Debenhams.
In 1921, Curtiss and Sons were awarded the prestigious Royal Warrant from the Prince of Wales and again in 1922 from King George V for loading and unloading the royal yacht, the Victoria and Albert. Curtiss and Sons Limited gained it’s place in history when put in charge of offloading the Duke and Duchess of York’s luggage after an extensive trip to Australia on a navy ship in the1930’s.
Over the years we have carefully moved and stored many items both large and small, and with over 140 years of experience we are still offering our excellent domestic and commercial removals service to the local Portsmouth community.
