Project scope

Relocate The Manchester Museum

Our key task

The preparation, casing, and relocation of a diverse range of artefacts within the Museum's collection.

The Manchester Museum is unique among English university museums, possessing a worldwide collection of both the natural sciences and humanities. These include botany, zoology, geology, antiquities, ethnography, archery, and numismatics. They possess over five million specimens and artefacts, all of which have been designated.

Careful preparation to move precious, rare artefacts

The project included the careful preparation, casing and relocation of a diverse range of artefacts within the collection. These included mummies, a 25' long Inca canoe, a 20' tall plaster of paris cross, a Buddha, butterflies, and a large stuffed buffalo.

To ensure no harm came to the pieces, our staff wore protective gloves, as well as utilising specialist wrapping materials such as acid-free tissue. It was necessary to build bespoke wooden cases for selected items, with tilt stickers to ensure their safe transit.

TSG Ltd

Seamless, professional and issue free

I wanted to take a moment to say a big thank you to you and your teams for support the relocation/reconfiguration of the furniture on the 2nd floor. It was seamless, professional and issue free. I have noticed the team working a few times, in my car whilst driving past the old library some weeks ago and of course I have been present at times during the move the last couple of weeks. The team is a credit to the business. They all worked extremely hard and quietly  SMBC is very happy with the output as are Robertson. Please pass on the thanks to the team.

Stockport Council

Made a difficult job that bit easier

Just want to pass on our thanks to you, for putting up with all our demands and letting us store some leftover items at Phoenix.

If you could pass on our thanks as well to all the guys from BCL who helped with the move.  They were extremely helpful, struggling for hours with some of the dodgy old shelving we had, along with moving the crates from one point to another so we could unpack them with ease. They were really helpful & they made a difficult job that bit easier.

Can I just say how wonderful the moving company was
