The Vanguard West London facility has the ability to handle and store very large commercial consignments.
The facility, which is certainly uncommon, and indeed perhaps unique within the M25, includes two 20t overhead gantry cranes. There is the capability to bring trucks into this specialist part of our warehouse so that the cranes can handle items inside.
Over the past years we have handled some unique and very high value pieces including switchgear equipment for the London Underground and printing presses. Items currently in the warehouse include a London Routemaster bus, a Hawker Hunter aircraft, a Lightning aircraft and a Ferret armoured car.
We also have the facility to handle palletised loads such as stock, machine parts and works of art. Vanguards involvement with such specialist services goes back nearly fifty years and as well as providing these specialist handling and storage we also provide a consultancy service.
Due to the very unique nature of such activities it is vital that requirements are discussed and fully specified before execution takes place and as such these services can only be provided on a pre-planned basis.
