Moving a library in complete order - Buehler Companies, The Way The World Is Moving Their Libraries and Bookcases!

Moving a library can be very overwhelming! You have to keep all of the books in order to avoid a nightmare at the end of the move. The last thing that you want is for any of the books to get mixed up.

Buehler Companies understands the importance of keeping everything in order where a library move is concerned. This is why I have compiled a list of frequently asked questions and answers. 

We hope that this helps your moving process and helps to put your mind at ease when choosing the right moving company to handle your library moving needs.

Q:
How do you keep everything in order?
A:
We use library carts and load the books onto the carts in complete order, the library carts are then shrink wrapped and labeled in a detailed manner to ease the unloading process. The books come off the shelf in order and go back onto the shelf in order.

Q:
Do you also take down and put up the shelving?
A:
Yes. Buehler Companies experienced and certified crews are fully trained to disassemble and reassemble various types of library shelving.

Q:
How do you manage large library moves?
A:
There are various different factors on how we manage each move. The project management scope of services is laid out based on your individual moving needs. Buehler Companies offers a project management website to our customers on larger projects to ensure that everyone is in loop and on schedule with just one click.

Q:
How do your moving crews know where to place the items?
A:
Prior to the move, Buehler Companies assigns move numbers for item placement at destination. These move numbers create efficiency to reduce time and cost associated with the move. Strategically placed numbering plans really help to ensure that everything goes exactly where it should.

Q:
Does moving a library cost more?
A:
It depends on how prepared you are. Moving a library can be time consuming if you aren’t prepared which can result in costing additional money. We will provide you with a list of things that you can do to ensure that your library move takes less time and saves you money.

Q:
Does moving a library require more trucks?
A:
Yes. Moving a library and keeping it in complete order does take additional truck because library carts (bookshelves) require more room than cartons or boxes. However, paying for additional trucks will essentially be a lot more cost effective in the end rather than paying your employees to pack and unpack books.


There are some of the most commonly asked questions when it comes to library moves. If you have further questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us!

Here is a checklist on how you can prepare for your next library move. This will help you to save time and money!
Make sure that all of the books are placed on the shelves prior to the moving company arriving on site. Loose books can cause a mix up at destination.

Make sure that you have a floor plan of the new building and have discussed the layout of the new library with your moving company.
Take photos of the entire library so that if there are questions on how things were laid out at the origin building, you can use the photos for reference.

Get with the property management of the buildings to make sure that your move date is scheduled and reserve elevators, etc…
Measure the floor space at both origin and destination buildings and discuss with your moving company on the height of the shelves, placement and review to be sure there is room to place everything in the new building prior to moving all items.

Rather than doing and extensive inventory, have your moving company count the library carts at origin and again at destination instead. This makes everything go faster which will ultimately save you time.

Ask your moving company if their equipment is in good order. Faulty equipment can cost you time and money.
Label all rooms at destination and staging areas completely to avoid causing confusion.

We hope that some of these ideas will help you to save time and money on your move. We are glad to answer additional questions if you have any. Give us a shout at 303-388-4000
