  • Local Government – Polling booth station setup during elections
  • Museum Relocations – Victoria and Albert / National Archives
  • Hospitals/Labs Moves – NHS Hospitals, Laboratory Moves, COVID-19 PPE deliveries
  • Schools/Colleges/Universities – London School of Economics, University College London, South Thames college

We understand that relocating objects from heritage sites such as museums can be a stressful time, especially for the archivist and conservators who look after them, but we ensure that your valuable and rare artefacts are considerately relocated by our professional team, who are motivated to provide the best possible service and duty of care.

We ensure that fragile and delicate items are sensitively handled, packed, and protected to enhanced levels and securely controlled throughout collection, transportation, and delivery.

In many instances we provide bespoke, made to measure packing cases to afford additional protection throughout the delivery process.

Laboratory Moves

We have undertaken numerous projects that have required the relocation of laboratory equipment for clients such as The London School of Economics, Kingston University and The London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine

Working within laboratory environments can potentially expose personnel to hazardous chemicals and therefore, special consideration and analysis is always made whilst we undertake any such related activity. We work with our clients to ensure that we meet the recognised Laboratory Standard issued by OSHA which was developed to address workplaces and environments where relatively small quantities of hazardous chemicals are used on a non-production basis.

With careful consideration given to the high value and sensitive nature of the items we relocate, we ensure that all Specialist Relocations items are meticulously audited, securely packed, and protected and safely transported to their final destination.
