MUSEUM MOVE – THACKRAY MEDICAL
Based in the heart of Leeds, Thackray Museum is one of the country’s leading medical museums specialising in early X-ray equipment and also the use of early electrical operation instruments.
Specialised Movers over the last 2 years have visited the site and moved exhibits and pieces of large, fragile, and heavy early X- ray equipment. Sterile areas are prepared by Specialised Movers pre-move due to the fact that areas of movement are still open to the public. All removal services are offered during normal working hours, thus reducing costs to the client.
Specialised Movers’ Lifting Division have moved the largest of exhibits within the building after spending time to wrap, secure and rig the load. Scoots, Pal Bac and other heavy lifting equipment were used during the removal process. The visitors to the museum were more interested with the removal process rather than the exhibits currently on show.
Specialised Movers have introduced a special capped rate which allows the curator of the museum to email at short notice for the provision of removal services.
Specialised Movers’ continuing relationship with the client is a success story for our company.
