Changing our DNA.



The newly opened Francis Crick Institute exhibition space is currently showing the How do we look? exhibition. Focusing on the words of their own researchers they explore the world of scientific problem solving. Fortunately for them the one problem they no longer need to solve is how to move their uniquely designed display cases. Using our standard M59 Movemate with applied anti scratch fork technology, the cabinets can be relocated to any position within the display area with minimum effort. For further reading about this exhibition and other to come visit

New website coming soon

We have been very busy over the last few years, working hard to keep all our customers happy with sales and servicing of the Movemate cabinet movers. However we have neglected our webpage, and we feel now is the right time to address this. Please bear with us as we hope to bring you a well informed and up to date webpage for all devices.

Many thanks ChrisMovemate tag2

Workshop makeover

To keep the troops happy in their surroundings we have installed wall to wall carpet tiles on the workshop floor. Extravagant you might think but the benefits we’ve gained with soundproofing and reduced heat loss added to the comfort underfoot has proved to be a huge success. Just let them get any oil it and there will be ructions.


With just me doing the carpet fitting I was able to move all the full storage cabinets myself.  I told you these things where good.

Variable geometry

VG2No !  Not a three legged lift, but the usable widths that can be obtained from the Movemate cabinet mover. The unique ability offered by the Movemate to easily widen its forks allows a total footprint of 1000mm x 800mm in any position down to 400mm wide  Accepting that at all times loads of up to 1 tonne can be achieved this represents an amazing tool for anyone having to move any heavy un palletised load.

Shades of Grey

The Movemate cabinet mover now comes in a stylish silver metallic grey with the usual striking red handle. The standard yellow colour has now been completely superseded by the grey across the complete range of handling equipment. However the manufacturer can supply Movemates in any colour so long as they conform to the standard RAL colour system commonly used across Europe.

Costs will be at a premium unless you can order 5 or more at one time.

The standard lift can be extended from 1000mm to 1750mm in length with lift heights of up to 1500mm. However bespoke designs can be produced for any length or height
