Moving cars of educational value

Posted by Stringo - 14 February, 2018


Last year Stringo donated a vehicle mover to The Henry Ford Museum in Detroit as a way of demonstrating our support for their important educational work. Recently we revisited the museum to continue that support.

The Henry Ford Museum is a non-profit foundation. The museum’s collections comprise vehicles of different sizes, weights and shapes, most of them with a story to tell about our history. Their work, especially their educational work, made such an impression on Nina Thelin, CEO of Stringo, that she decided to donate a vehicle mover to the museum. The new Stringo vehicle mover is already contributing to their important job.

The Henry Ford Museum uses the Stringo to move the one of a kind vehicles of the collection. They no longer must push the cars and risk damaging the vehicles and worry about the paint cracking from hand pressure. In addition, they can have one person control the vehicle and use other personnel for spotters, a much safer way for the cars and people. The original 1964 Ford Mustang convertible serial #1, The John Kennedy presidential Limousine, original Ford Model T and Model A are some of the priceless vehicles moved by the Stringo.

During the recent visit The Henry Ford Museum showed us their plans for expanding and upgrading the collection which includes the use of the Stringo as a key part of the move. They will be consolidating all 400 cars stored at various locations under one roof. The use of the Stringo will allow them time savings and protection of the invaluable, one of a kind collection.

We are happy to see how our vehicle mover is making their valuable work easier and wish them all the best with their plans for the future.
