Removals specialists from a South Yorkshire firm have played a vital role in helping a university when it needed to refurbish its library.
Staff from the Wales Bar branch of Clockwork Removals were given the task of overseeing the temporary relocation of 40,000 tomes from the University of Northumbria’s library.
All the books had to be logged and stored carefully and staff ended up working long hours after the refurbishment over ran to ensure the library reopened on time with all the volumes in the right place.
Branch manager Mark Jones said: “We have extensive experience in commercial moves, which often by necessity require being undertaken out of hours to exacting time frames.”
The library job is far from being the most unusual tackled by Clockwork, which has handled everything from the removal of priceless ecclesiastical objects to relocating a commercial radio station without interrupting its broadcasts.
