I would echo that the Meyvaert ones aren’t as easy to put together as they lead you to believe either. (I’ve not used the Click Netherfield ones I just knew they existed as a product). I can however recommend Art Works company who can put them together very efficiently and safely and even trouble shot a couple of issues we had with the ones we were putting up. Obviously that is an added cost but they are fairly reasonable, depends how often you are planning on de/reconstructing them.

Hi Verity,

I don’t have any positive recommendations either but I thought I would just let you know our experience of the Click Tess Demountable cases in case it helps your decision making.

 

We have 3 of these cases and honestly they’re really not that easy to use – the individual pieces are pretty heavy, you need 3 pretty strong people to do it safely, and if you’re in an historic building with less than straight floors they can be a real pig to put back together (and you may not be able to open the door fully without building it a bespoke plinth to stand on!). The locking system never seems to quite align properly either – though again that might be to do with the wonky old building we’re in!

 

Last time we had to move a couple of them at the same time we actually paid an art/museum moving company to come in and do it for us as we knew they’d be able to do it without the nervous breakdown it causes in staff whenever we discuss it! That being said, the company we used said ours were easier to do than the Myvaert ones…that might just be a matter of opinion though.

 

All the best,

Alexia

Hello all,

Thanks,
