Company History Page 3

Running parallel with this expansion into the coaching world, at the end of the war, people were beginning to travel further afield for work, pleasure and to start a new life as married couples. This created the advent of a furniture removal business. Originally the same tipper lorries were used, then a long wheel-based Bedford OB flat-bed was acquired with a demountable container body and rear gang plank, this was then superseded by a Thames Trader 4D with a purpose coach built Pantechnicon constructed by "Archers of Stratford" ( As Shown Below ).

This specialist side of the business was operated by Philip Rose and Steve's grandson Peter Parr, who carved themselves a name as Highly Recommended Professionals.

After a long and successful lifetime, Steve died in 1972, and the business was continued by his two remaining sons Ken and Tip.

In 1987 the business was taken over by Derek, Ken's Son, and Peter Parr, forming the current company Webbs of Armscote Ltd. The coaching and furniture removal side of the business was discontinued, allowing the directors to apply their life-long experience in the supply and delivery of builders materials to create a professional business, with the personal, friendly and reliable approach of the original family concern.
