Featured Project: Craning Our Necks

February 20, 2019

The MSS Precision Crating team answered a call from our partners at Transit Systems, Inc. (TSI) to crate two solid jadeite (a form of jade) statues weighing in at a hefty 1,800 lbs. each. The high value Chinese army general figures were slated to be transported between two local residences, but first they had to be successfully removed from the home. No simple task.

The statues were so heavy they required a crane for secure hauling out of the residence. Click here (or see below) to check out this monster machine in action! Once the items were protected, the crane successfully carried them to the truck for final packaging. After arriving safely at their destination, however, the team realized the statues were too tall to fit through the doors. So it was off with their heads—literally! The crew devised a plan to safely remove the heads, move the figures, and reassemble all without comprising the integrity of the pieces.

Another creative job by the Precision Crating team & TSI!
