New division launch offers libraries specialist relocation services

21 May 2013

A UK relocation company has launched a specialist library relocation division dedicated to moving books and serials, special and rare collections, microforms and non-print media, and file rooms

Premier Moves has built up extensive expertise and experience in library moves, relocating more than 20 libraries in the past six months. In 2011/12, the company moved over 200 linear kilometres of materials for the British Library, one of the largest collection moves ever undertaken in the UK. The national, public, university, college, school and specialist library moves have also included a six month relocation project for Hertfordshire County Council in February 2013 and most recently moves for Enfield Library and Museum, Rothamsted Research Library with forthcoming projects planned at Girton College and the University of Chichester.

The new division is led by Premier Moves former Head of Business Development, Alex Rushbrooke, and supported by library relocation specialist, Steve Tanner who has over 30 years’ experience in national library relocations. The dedicated division employs a permanent team of library relocation specialists who are fully trained in sequential packing, have expertise in all library classification systems and can demonstrate a track record in successful library relocations.

Alex says: “Library moves are often complex, involving valuable and fragile assets which require secure, accurate and traceable relocations. Premier Moves is delighted to launch the UK’s first dedicated library relocation division to meet the needs of these clients. We look forward to delivering the business class standards of all our relocation, clearance and refurbishment services to more libraries across the country”.

Premier Moves’ library relocation services are supported by the company’s award winning sustainable services. Premier Sustain ensures that books, journals, furniture, shelves and other items that are no longer required by the libraries are reused, remodelled or recycled, so that clearances are carried out in an environmentally responsible and cost effective way. With a dedicated furniture refurbishment workshop Premier Moves can now also offer libraries the option of refurbishing and remodelling library furniture to extend its life and help meet tight budgets.
