That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for John Mason International

We’ve gone where no international removals company has gone before and sent a shipping container into Space! Our customers know we’re very well-versed in transporting treasured belongings safely across the oceans to the other side of the world – so we wanted to really push ourselves. Could we send a specially-made removals container into Space? Of course we could. And we filmed the very extraordinary journey before coming back to Earth safe, sound and undamaged.

Sending Anything, Anywhere

Our business is all about taking you where you want to go – whether you’re moving your life to Europe, the USA, Australia, New Zealand or any other far flung corner of the Earth. It’s a big decision, upping sticks and moving to another country. If you’ve made that decision, you might come to us for assistance. But it’s not just people we help to relocate. You’ll probably be wanting to take your possessions with you too. That’s fine. Whether you plan to take a few things, or everything but the kitchen sink, we really can send anything, anywhere. And now that includes Space!

How we sent a container to space!

First we produced a special version of a John Mason International shipping container. Then we attached it to a balloon capable of transporting our precious cargo all the way up into Space. A custom-built 360º camera rig beamed back 4K resolution immersive video in the harshest conditions. Our crate reached heights of almost 40km – double the point where astronauts require Space suits. The film clearly shows the curvature of the Earth and the thin blue line of its atmosphere.

Our precious container went on an arduous adventure – experiencing temperatures of -70ºC and 0º pressure. The balloon finally burst at 35,936m after 1 hour, 44 minutes and 16 seconds – at which point in plummeted back to Earth at speeds of more than 150mph.

Not surprisingly for a journey overseen by John Mason International, the container reached its intended destination safe-and-sound.

My whole experience with John Mason's has been very good, from having Tony surveying till today with the container being packed, I will definitely recommend John Mason to provide removal services.

M.H. South Shields, UK to Perth, Australia – May 2018

Absolutely one of the best movers I have worked with. Pleasant helpful admin staff and the delivery drivers were absolute angels sorting and moving the boxes where I asked them to. Arrived exactly when they said it would.
