The Commercial Moving Group (CMG) of the British Association of Removers Join CFAS

The Chairman and Council are pleased to announce that in our 30th Anniversary Year, the Commercial Moving Group of the BAR have recently joined CFAS in order to further promote the CMG Brand, and the vast range of services that our Members can provide to a wider spectrum of the Relocation Industry.

To enable an understanding of the wide range of work our Members undertake, we have produced a selection of Case Studies highlighting both normal every day work, along with some specialist relocation’s that have recently been carried out.

We start with CMG Member Specialised Movers, who successfully completed the Relocation of the entire REME (Corps of Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers) Museum Collection consisting of over 125,000 individual items. All uniquely asset tagged, and all of historical, monetary and extreme emotive value to the regiment.




Specialised Movers packed, wrapped, inventoried, asset tagged, over-packed into airfreight-cartons, secured to pallet bases, shrink wrapped, (or packed into bespoke wooden crates/cases), transported and delivered into new site at RAF Lyneham. All items were checked by client staff onto vehicles and again upon delivery.



Specialist items:

Priceless artefacts from WWII automated mannequins, libraries, working steam-train models, medal collections, battalion-banners, and regimental paintings. Heavy lifting equipment used for Volkswagen displays (REME rescued VW at the end of WWII), missiles, military vehicles and larger weaponry.

The Relocation was successfully completed within the required 12-week schedule, working with a smaller crew to ensure all staff had thorough understanding of the site, the national importance of collections, the exact logistics, protective levels and also the working culture and needs of the museum site, its curators and its staff.

As we say at the Commercial Moving Group, it’s all in a days work for our BS8522 certificated members.
