Library Relocations

Shhh…. our secret to a successful library move….

We are not simply a removals company that relocates libraries, but a specialised library mover with the flexibility to overcome any obstacle in relocation. We undertake library removals for the public sector, educational/academic sector (schools/colleges), and private and commercial libraries, and can provide a long list of extremely satisfied clients as testament to our high quality library relocations.

We recognise that each library is unique and has its own individual requirements, and therefore understand how critical it is to work closely with the designers, project manager and refurbishment company, but also more importantly to understand the needs of the librarians. You know your library better than anyone else, and we take great care in listening and learning from you and then tailoring our services to meet your exact needs.

When undertaking Library Moves, detailed and delicate move plans need to be drawn up and followed. Great care must be taken when packing and transporting such valuable assets as well as the re-instating of the catalogue system at the new location.

We take pride in our attention to detail and high standards of customer service, which are at the forefront of every job we do.

As library relocation specialists, we can provide individual book and shelf-to-shelf relocations as well as professional, secure handing of special and rare collections.  Our specially-trained staff can also assist with the project management of your move.

To complement your library relocation, we can offer off-site secure storage facilities and specialist insurance, to give you complete peace of mind.  We also provide extensive buildings protection and work frequently with listed buildings, ensuring that the fabric and fixtures of the libraries themselves are not damaged during the relocation process. We can even help to dispose of unwanted equipment and fittings which could generate revenue to offset the cost of your move.

We are one of the leading library relocation specialists in South Africa with a dedicated library team fully trained in the art of sequential packing including Dewey, Binary and Library of Congress classification systems.  This ensures that all collections are relocated accurately and with traceability throughout the whole project. Our strict vetting and security processes ensure that all of our operatives are cleared to work at the highest government levels.
