Heritage Services

We are experts in the relocation of rare artefacts and specially trained in the sensitive handling, preparation, packaging, transportation and storage of heritage collections and exhibitions.

Packaging, Storage and Transportation of Heritage Artefacts

We provide the right storage environment which meets BS 4971:2017 standard. We ensure that every item is carefully packed and protected using the right material to safeguard against decay even when stored in the right temperature and humidity conditions. Our full-time, highly experienced and trained packing teams provide a dedicated service to our heritage customers, providing support, advice and knowledge.

Planning a Heritage Move

When planning to move your museum or its collections, we ensure the relocation of irreplaceable artefacts and archives is meticulously planned, including:

  • sensitive handling of delicate or fragile items
  • specialist packing and packaging to archival standards
  • secure transportation in accordance with government indemnity guidelines
  • secure and appropriate storage and transportation environments

Heritage Moves

Heritage Relocation

We prepare detailed methodologies for the safe packing and transportation of a wide range of items from natural history specimens and archival records to major exhibits.

Our project managers discuss your museum's needs with you and build a close relationship with your staff by close observation of their operating methods in order to identify your project's special requirements. This way they can devise a bespoke moving plan designed specifically for your collection in order to ensure it is handled in the most professional way possible.

Should your museum need to continue functioning throughout the move, we design detailed plans of responsibilities, access and risk assessment, timetabling all work, in order to minimise disruption and intrusion to exhibit space.

Why Our Heritage Customers Choose Us

We enjoyed working with the team from Restore Harrow Green, who were very flexible and accommodating when it came to our requests and the needs of the collection, and have an ongoing relationship with them transporting our collection to and from storage.
