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.

...making a very stressful day, a little less stressful

Martin, thank you for everything. The guys were absolutely amazing and worked so hard especially in this heat. They were all amazing. We’d definitely recommend you. 

Please do pass on our special thanks to all involved for making a very stressful day, a little less stressful. 

Kind regards Kiran

The overall service provided by your company has been excellent value

I wouldn’t normally get involved directly in providing feedback on performance of our contractors, but feel I must commend the excellent service that we have received from your team in moving us to our new office on Hagley Road and the clearance of Calthorpe Road.

The team were both efficient in their work and extremely well-mannered. Three days ago I couldn’t have imagined sitting here now in a functioning office with our old office completely clear of the clutter that had built up over 20 years. Please extend my thanks to them.

I feel that the overall service provided by your company has been excellent value and I would not hesitate to recommend you in the future.
