We’ve done some unusual deliveries in our time but today was a good one: “He’ll meet you in the car park and will give you a hand loading”; we were expecting something on four wheels.
With “Spanner” alongside (that’s the river launch), the cabinet is gingerly loaded. The only place for it is the front deck. Appropriately enough it’s another of our cabinets salvaged from the National Maritime Museum; it was made in 1937 to contain a boat.
It is a cold day but thankfully calm for the cabinet’s short trip to its new island residence in the middle of the Thames.
We salvaged 135 of these cabinets … collecting the last load from The National Maritime Museum in March. We have now shipped them to buyers in the USA, flown them to customers in Japan, ferried them to Belgian clients and driven them to the highlands of Scotland. We’ve hired them to the Royal Academy and exhibited them on the London Underground. We’ve got under fifty left now – click here for more information or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more details of sizes still available.
