The aim of this collaborative scheme is to provide a premium storage service at a bargain price, so that all those responsible for the care of historic collections can afford to have the best storage environment in a top security location.
To be eligible for the low prices and take advantage of the very high quality, you and your organisation will need to be responsible for heritage collections such as archives, books, museum objects, works of art and archaeological artefacts. You will need to become a supporting member of NCS, which costs just £46 per year. The storage contract is with Restore Plc for renting space, while your NCS membership means that you can rest assured that the environment and other standards are being monitored for you and conservation expertise is on hand. NCS has tied Restore Plc into a contract that allows us to instruct the storing institutions to stop paying rent if any standard specified is not being met, and withhold payment until it is remedied.
