What Makes us Exceptional?

Over many years of library moving, we have developed different moving tricks and moving systems that allow for a quick and orderly library move. Some of these moving tricks and systems are specialty moving equipment. Our unique flagging method allows us to move your collection so that books remain in the correct order of call numbers at all times. Our experienced and professional movers then uses our own custom built “book carts” to transport the flagged books. This saves you money on moving expenses and allows us to stay within your budget.

Flagging System

When our professional movers begin a library move, they flag each section of books. The movers then transfer them to the shelf that they will be moved into. This way the library books stay in order before, during and after the move is complete.

Book Carts

Another piece of moving equipment our professional movers use during our library moves is book carts. These sturdy carts are made of a strong wood and have several shelves. They can hold in excess of 800 pounds, which makes them ideal for transporting hundreds of books during a library move. These carts are also constructed with wheels on the bottom for easy moving.
