History of removals and logistics graces coffee tables

History of removals and logistics graces coffee tables

When our client, the British Association of Removers (BAR), began life in 1900, horse-drawn wagons were the mainstay of road transport and an intercity home move took three days to complete. Around this time, a unique type of vehicle emerged to serve the demanding, personal and highly specialised task of removals: the pantechnicon. Over the last two centuries, from Dundee to Downing Street, the vehicle’s presence on Britain’s roads has come to symbolise new beginnings, as first documented by Pantechnicon – Analytica Media’s latest hardback, coffee-table publication. Illustrated throughout with captivating photography from across the centuries, Pantechnicon shines a light on an industry whose roots, culture and idiosyncrasies have made a unique contribution to the unfolding of British social history. As the sector’s leading trade association toasts its 120th anniversary this year, Pantechnicon looks back to celebrate a century of professional moving and forward to inspire the next generation of removals specialists.
