Gerson flies Batman to Japan

Oct 24, 2016
Gerson Relocation Ltd has secured a most unusual move of Batman memorabilia from Cheshire to Japan. The private collection was started back in 1961 and is the second-largest in world.

The collection consists of just about everything to do with Batman, including the Batmobile and a children’s Batman car made from a cardboard box. It’s the only one in the world so great care and special packaging was used to keep it safe during the long journey.

The collection has numerous toys, costumes and even a Batman pogo stick. The final volume of the collection which was packed by staff at Gerson’s Daventry office was 450 cubic feet. This volume would normally be transported by sea, but the buyer in Japan decided to have it sent by air to Tokyo for the sake of speed.

The buyer also insisted on lots of photographs being taken before, during and after the packing, and during the air freight casing process at Gerson’s warehouse.
