The Intricacies of Museum Relocations

Here at Edward Baden Specialist Movers, we understand the intricacies of museum relocations. That’s why we have a team of highly skilled and trained movers to precisely relocate your delicate museum art and artefacts. With over 25 years of experience in relocations, it’s safe to say we have the expertise to move even the most fragile of items!

Our museum relocation services include

Initial consultations and assessments

Prior to your move, our dedicated move manager will come over to assess and evaluate your items for the move and curate a bespoke package to tailor to your needs.

Protective packaging

Before the move, our specialist packing team will carefully wrap your artefacts with acid-free tissue, foam pads, bubble wrap or heavy duty plastic sheeting and place them into 3 ply cardboard boxes with flow chips to prevent movement during transit.

Customised crates

For large and odd-shaped items, we will provide custom-built bespoke plywood cases to ensure safe transit of the items from your current location to the next.

Items will be transported via our own fleet of vehicles

We use our own fleet of vehicles to move your museum art and artefacts, so you can be certain of the safety and security of your items at all times.

Climate controlled storage facility

Should you require storage services before, during or after the move, our climate controlled storage facility located in Uckfield is the ideal place to store all your precious artefacts for long or short periods of time.

Delicate handling, unpacking and reinstallation

Our team of expert movers will carefully handle your items with utmost care, and help to unpack and reinstall the items at their new location.

Disposal of used packaging

We will take care of everything from packing to unpacking and cleaning up! With our service, rest assured that every step of your relocation is delivered according to schedule, and within budget.

Edward Baden has vast experience in museum relocations and are proud to have successfully relocated one of the UK’s top attractions, The Natural History Museum! In 2014, the museum had a requirement for the relocation of a large collection (3,000+ items) of unique, delicate, irregularly-shaped and heavy animal skulls with horns and antlers to the museum’s off-site storage facility. This was a very challenging project involving a vast quantity of specimens each one unique and of significant scientific value. Following completion of the transport of the specimens to the storage site, we provided an “on request” unpacking service in line with the curator’s schedule.
