Library and archive

We understand that security and the safe handling of library and archive materials is one of your major priorities. So we have developed proven methodologies for moving libraries and archives, which can be adapted to meet the specific requirements of any project, large or small.

Due to legal requirements, the long-term storage and management of business paperwork has become something that every company must do. As office space is usually charged at a premium rate, this makes it uneconomical to store paperwork and archive boxes in your office.

Johnsons have the answer. Our Records Management Services operate from our multiple archive centres based across the UK. Our facilities have 24-hour security monitoring, plus full on-site computerised bar coding and tracking facilities, internal viewing area, fax and photocopying services and 24-hour access.

A tailored approach for each library

We know that every library is different and that we need to tailor our approach to accommodate the particular contents of your library. Our specialist move managers will spend time getting to know you and your objectives for the move. Then they will collaborate with you to devise a detailed move plan to cover every eventuality.

Our team will then get to work measuring and mapping your library spaces and shelving, indexing, tagging, and sequentially packing stock. To complete the move, we will provide the right packing materials to ensure the smooth transfer of every item in your library to its new location – safely and securely.
