Great North Snowdogs

Great North Snowdogs

Great North Snowdogs Supported by Quicksilver Removals & Storage

We’re so excited to be part of this fantastic new mass participatory free public art and cultural event taking place across Tyne and Wear in September.

Great North Snowdogs is an initiative by St Oswald’s Hospice to unite businesses and the cultural sectors in the region to fundraise for the charity. Artists will design individual Snowdogs and they’ll be placed along a trail around the region for the general public to visit and get interactive with each sculpture.

We’re supporting this great initiative by packing, wrapping and delivering each Snowdog sculpture to their temporary home, then after the 10-week trail, we’ll be collecting each Snowdog and relocating them to their final destination.

Our new large vans and lorries are perfect for this project to comfortably and safely transport the Snowdogs to their specific locations and all hands will be on deck to move these heavy 1.5m high Snowdogs.

We have specialist removal porters who are experienced at moving large heavy items, therefore, offering our services to support this great initiative is of huge help to ensure these Snowdogs are moved safely to finally be auctioned off at the end of the trail.

We’re big supporters of charity events in the region, especially events that bring art and culture to the general public to increase awareness of the charity as well as the locations these fantastic sculptures will be positioned for 10 weeks.

We’re proud to be amongst some of the big names in the region supporting this great cause including Tyne and Wear Metro, Barbour, Fenwick, Sunderland AFC, Sage Gateshead, Gentoo and many others.

If you’d like to get involved with the Great North Snowdogs there are sponsorship opportunities available and check back on their official website to find out about the trail so you can go and see these wonderful sculptures.

Hospital Move Success

Hospital Move Success by Quicksilver Removals & Storage, Newcastle

Since the turn of the year we’ve been working closely with the Royal Victoria Infirmary in Newcastle to help staff move departments to a new Clinical office block.

This was a demanding and highly time sensitive project to have staff, equipment and furniture moved in a short period of time, working around hospital demands. We’ve worked over night to avoid disruption to working hours and all of the staff at the RVI have been wonderfully accommodating with the move schedule.

From initial surveying to planning the move, we carried out in-depth inspections of everything to be relocated, packed and wrapped to ensure a smooth move for everyone.

We love stats so here are a few dazzling figures that are involved with this critical move…

4500 crates of desk contents, administration files and equipment relocated

967 IT desks all packed, wrapped and moved

35,420 cubic feet of furniture relocated

40 microscopes and associated equipment all packed, wrapped and relocated

121.5 tonnes of redundant furniture recycled

8.5 tonnes of redundant furniture reused and re purposed

Our specialist commercial removal teams were working to their limits with some of the heavy and large items required to be relocated; not only did we pack, wrap and relocate hundreds of items, we also collaborated with the Trust to identify furniture for reuse and recycling.

Old or damaged furniture was brought back to Quicksilver HQ to strip down to component parts and recycled via wood and metal specialists. We’re far more than just a removal firm and the Trust were impressed with our wide range of services that complemented this project from start to finish.

We work closely with many NHS trusts and with our experience, we can quickly and effectively relocate departments with minimum disruption to everyday working hours.

Now onto the next job!

We often have furniture that is repurposed and is suitable for reuse so if you have any requirements for second-hand furniture please get in touch and email joanne@quicksilverthemover.com

Man with a van Newcastle

No more 5am wake up calls for Norman after 25 years of service

Newcastle Man With A Van Retires From Quicksilver Removals & Storage

Celebrating 25 years of service at Quicksilver, Norman Crumbie is sadly retiring from the business to pursue a more relaxed lifestyle of retirement with his wife, Jean and grandchildren.

Norman has been an integral part of the Quicksilver team after he joined in 1991 following a career in a factory based environment at British Paints.

Norman was a natural removal porter from the very beginning who successfully completed his BAR (British Association of Removers) Training in 1999 and he used his experience for the most specialised packing jobs ever since. He was our most experienced porter who helped train new recruits and even up until Norman’s last day in service, he was still as active and physically capable of keeping up with our younger members of staff.

Not only was Norman a dedicated member of staff on every job, he woke up at 5am every morning to catch two buses to work and he was never late, never sick and was an exemplary employee who will be a great miss.

Our customers held Norman in very high regard, with requests for him personally to be on their removal jobs and commented he was always entertaining, telling fascinating stories and cracking jokes which made their move less stressful and passed the time.

David Collard, Managing Director of Quicksilver added, “Norman was our most experienced and highly valued employee who we are all going to miss when he retires.

I’ve had the pleasure of working alongside Norman for 25 years and he’s a great character as well as being an ultimate professional who takes such pride in his work. I wish Norman a long and happy retirement with his wife and hopefully, there will be no more 5am wake-up calls.”

In 25 years, Quicksilver has seen a huge growth within the removal and storage industry with the construction of new high-security premises in Throckley, Newcastle upon Tyne, and the expansion of the team to accommodate on-going customer demand. Norman has supported the business through its continued growth and has been an essential member of staff who has played a big role in helping to maintain the consistency of our high-quality service.

The whole team at Quicksilver are pleased to have had the honour to work with such a wonderful gentleman and we all wish Norman the very best and a long and healthy retirement.

Art on the Move

When You Need More Than a “Man with a Van” in Newcastle – Quicksilver Removals Art Movers

Whether you’re an artist moving your pieces to galleries for display, to a competition or to an auction house; you need more than simply a ‘man with a van’. Similarly, if you’re an art collector buying artworks and sculptures, you want to ensure its safe move from A to B.

We’ve been relocating and moving art around the UK and globally for over 30 years and following a recent large project with world renowned artist, Nico Widerberg we realised that many artists and collectors in the UK didn’t use specialist art movers.

Read all about the move we completed with Nico Widerberg from Newcastle to Norway to understand how we work.

To be a successful art mover takes years of expertise and knowledge of the industry as it’s a very different and sometimes difficult move to a standard home or office move. The knowledge needed is only gained from years of experience in the industry and constant development of new technologies. Moving art to auction houses

The man with the van may help you physically move your artwork, however when it comes to compliance, insurance and safety you can’t always trust them to reliably move your items with accuracy and care.

With international art moves, it’s prudent to organise the move well in advance of any deadline as timescales for obtaining relevant documentation to enter certain countries can take some time. In our experience, international relocations of artworks go as smoothly as those in the UK, and this is down to our meticulous planning and communication with the artist.

Here are some tips to make your next art move as efficient as possible

  •  Organise transportation with as much prior notice as possible to ensure the size of the van is available and your booking can be arranged for your specific time and date.
  •  Ensure the moving firm has the relevant insurance needed to relocate or move artwork and you receive an accurate and genuine valuation cost of the items to be moved.
  •  If you’re moving your artwork internationally, obtain the correct documentation needed for the move and hand this to the removal firm at the time of booking to speed up the process.
  •  Collaborate with other artists if your items are being moved to the same gallery or exhibition and save on moving costs by moving items together.
  •  If you’re packing the artwork yourself, ensure the moving company knows what each item is and give specific handling instructions if required, to ensure the safest possible move.

The most useful thing about using a specialist art moving company is that your valuable items aren’t shipped from various depots or warehouses, like if you use a postal or courier service. Your items are carefully transported from A to B without the need for unloading or movement giving you a safer transit.

Investing in a specialist art mover is as valuable as the art you buy or create. With art being more accessible these days, we transport more and more artwork each year giving customers the peace of mind their art is in safe hands.
