upUgo, a Bristol-based digital web agency, had sponsored a major award ceremony in Central London. As part of the said occasion, upUgo needed to transport their beautiful large sized Feathers McGraw statue to the event's venue. This piece of artwork was created by the internationally renowned Aardman Animations. upUgo bought the statue at a charity fundraising auction to raise money for ‘The Grand Appeal’, which aims to benefit Bristol’s Children’s Hospital.
To ensure safe, fast and secure delivery of the Feathers McGraw statue, upUgo contracted Firstpoint Logistics, which is known for its enviable service. To implement a comprehensive delivery, our staff coordinated with the client. The statue was situated on the 3rd floor of upUgo’s central Bristol office, where it stands proudly in the terraced roof garden overlooking the city.
From there, we carefully carried it to our service vehicle and loaded it for transport. As the statue is valuable for many reasons, we made sure we handled it with care while in transit. We also liaised with the event staff in London to unload the statue for the ceremony and arranged to collect the statue for the return trip to Bristol.
