Technical Knowledge

Relocating a library can be especially challenging because it requires a lot of strategic planning and technical knowledge. Libraries are meticulously organized and each book or file has a specific place. If you just start tossing books or files into a box, you are going to spend a significant amount of time trying to reorganize them. We have the technical knowledge needed to pack, move, and unpack a library so that no book is misplaced or lost. You spent precious time organizing everything, so we take the time to preserve your work.

Specialized Equipment

Our custom moving carts are designed to fit books and files. They are narrow enough to fit down aisles, allowing us to easily and quickly transport them. We can also stage the carts in hallways, allowing you to easily access your files and collections during the moving process. In addition, our carts help prevent damage to your collections.

Contact Moving Masters

To ensure that our staff is well trained and dedicated, we do not employ temporary laborers. Our team has extensive experience keeping your collections together and in proper order during the move. You will receive a designated project manager to see your job through the entire process. Contact us today for a consultation or a free estimate.
