Dudley Metropolitan Borough Council

The Project
In October and November 2013, Johnsons Moving services were awarded the contract for the relocation service for Dudley Archives and Local History Service.

The relocation took place over a six week period and included the relocation of over 16,500 archived items. Johnsons Moving Services assisted the staff in labeling the items ready to be packed and relocated. Due to an internal re-shuffle of items, our Packers were required to both sequentially pack the archives and provide assistance in the pick-and-pack rearrangement of some items.

Johnsons Moving Services were also required to wrap highly delicate items for the relocation to ensure total protection.

A supervisor was on site at all times to ensure all items were correctly relocated and a Move Manager was provided to oversee the entire project.
