Topspeed Transport a Treasured Glass Collection

Glass Collection donated to Stourbridge Glass Museum

A couple of years ago, John Westmoreland made the decision to donate his cherished glass collection to the Glass Museum in Stourbridge.

As a collector who had amassed rare pieces that could contain Uranium, he recognised that transporting them via standard courier services was not an option.

To ensure the safe and compliant transportation of dangerous goods, Mr. Westmoreland contacted Topspeed and spoke with Steve Clegg, who understood the unique requirements of transporting hazardous materials. As a specialist courier, Topspeed has two full-time Dangerous Goods Safety Advisers (DGSA), with one in training, to provide guidance on the packaging and transportation of dangerous goods. Our drivers have undergone ADR training, and our vehicles are customised to securely handle consignments classified as hazardous. We have also established robust safety procedures, regularly tested in emergencies.

Although Mr Westmoreland had sadly passed away before the collection could be donated, his daughters were determined to honour their father’s wishes for a safe and correct donation. Steve Clegg personally supervised the collection and ensured its delivery to the West Midlands.

Visitors to the Glass Museum in Stourbridge can learn about the origins and evolution of glassware in the UK and worldwide and see many pieces of Mr Westmoreland’s glass collection within the galleries.  Further displays will be shown within the tunnels when they are opened to the public in the future.
