Salvage & Wreck Removal

At Braemar our consultants understand the importance of crisis management and the need for risk and cost mitigation. Prioritising the interests of our clients, combined with effective operational planning, integrated crisis and emergency response organisation is our single priority.

Our established relationships with prominent contractors in the field enable us to engage as early as possible, organise resources and effectively negotiate contractual arrangements to ensure the whole operation runs as smoothly as possible and client exposure is minimised.
