History Wiggelaar

“Until 1883 the founder of our present company was a cheese production labourer with the Wijsman company. We used to do transport work for this firm until its discontinuance around 1890. In those times long past my great-grandfather was an agent of a brewery, “De Hooiberg” (Poort van Cleve). Manual labour was not possible any more for my grandfather after a stomach bleeding at the age of 34. However, he continued to be involved in the management of the company until he was 86.

In 1923 my grandfather converted the company into a cooperative company with his sons Chris and Paul as partners. At the time our services were of an entirely different nature than today. We cleaned rugs, brought ladies to the theatre, made payments, collected debts, kept keys of warehouses, and of course, provided porter services.

During the First World War we had twenty horses on stable at the Bloemstraat and the Laurierstraat. The garage and the office have remained at the latter address for a long time. In 1936 we became horseless. A situation that lasted until 1940 when the Second World War broke out. In 1955 my grandfather and the third generation continued the company, which moved from the Driekoningenstraat to the Singel in late 1968. We do not keep keys any more and after 1948 the horses were history as well.

In view of the changing times, we started concentrating entirely on the removals business after the 1960s. Late 1976 our office was moved from the Singel to the Laurierstraat. By then we really started specialising in project, office and private removals. The porter’s business became a parcel delivery company.

Today, we still do our work with care, attention and competent, enthusiastic employees. We have just celebrated our 125th anniversary with a lively party, which marked the beginning of the next 125 years.”
