Library Moves

Clockwork have specialist teams dedicated to library moving. Headed up by one of our specialist project managers, we understand the intricacies of these moves and the important attention to detail they require.

Whether you are refurbishing your current premises or moving to new state of the art facilities, members of our library moves and removals team have the experience and know-how to make it run like clockwork. Because we know each library is unique and has its own specific requirements, we offer a comprehensive range of services including:

To ensure your move goes to plan, our library consultants work very closely with:

  • Librarians
  • Curators
  • Designers, and
  • Project Managers

We also offer storage facilities for libraries.

Planning and Project Management

Understanding and planning the relocation around the needs of the librarian(s) is key. They know their library better than anyone else and we take great care in listening and learning from them and then tailoring our services to meet their exact needs. Our library consultants are trained in Dewey Decimal, Binary and Congress classification systems and have the required experience to ensure a smooth transition from inception to completion.

  • We will have initial preliminary discussions with key members of library staff, highlighting exact responsibilities. Our library moving team will familiarise themselves with the library and its structure.
  • Project meetings: During the planning stages it is inevitable that changes will occur that will affect the physical move. We provide a detailed move schedule that accounts for these changes along with appropriate contingency plans.
  • We work with you on all space planning and facility issues.
  • Integration: Most library moves involve some type of integration. Our library moving team are specialists in the integration of library collections from storage and/or other locations. We devise a labelling and colour-coding system that’s adaptable to any type of collection moved.
  • Flexibility: Our library move team ensure they provide a professional, yet flexible service that gives you and your team required peace of mind.

I would like to emphasis the helpfulness of your crews and the way in which they helped the whole process go so smoothly.  I have been involved in 3 re-locations for my company over the years, and your company was far, far better than our previous experiences.  I feel this is due to the accuracy of the assessment of our requirements initially by Andy and the follow up from your sales co-ordinator Alf, and then the crews themselves from the crew leader Algis to all his assistants.  Thank you. Shirley R / United Music Publishers

Fraser and the rest of the men are a real credit to Clockwork. I have never seen removal men work so hard, take as few breaks and be so obliging no matter how many times you ask them to move or reposition things! K Gillies / National Trust of Scotland

I just wanted to ask you to please say thank you to your guys once more, they did an amazing job! Not only were they very quick but had soon also figured out where things needed to go better than us so they made what could have been a stressful day very easy for us.
