Not an easy job, moving a pair of 10,000lbs 19th century Belgian Sandstone lions from busy Georgetown in Washington, DC to northside of Baltimore, but it was all done very professionally by Swann Trucking in less than 4 hours. The lions which were each cut in two had to be delicately manuevered into place and each fit together...If you know anything about sandstone, it's very delicate. Minimal damage to these fine speciman of Belgian stonework is an achievement Swann Trucking can boast of forever. My thanks to Robert and Steve. U ship was great..very patient as I had to delay making my final decision until the boss, my wife, came back from vacation. Great savings as I watched bids come in...far below what I could achieve from local companies I had contacted.
