Our Resources

Personnel
TRC
operates with full-time operative personnel, administrative staff and experienced casual personnel, who are well versed in maintaining strict sequential ordering for library collections during the Library Move process and we understand the particular requirements and challenges involved in relocating a library. We have the specific knowledge and equipment to ensure any library relocation project whether large or small is completed quickly, accurately and with a minimum of fuss..


When packing up a library we are experts at picking items to create temporary storage collections or for transfer to other locations.


When re-establishing libraries we are highly experienced at library interfiling from different collections including shelf planning to accommodate the varying category volumes from each collection.

Where we require additional temporary staff, we have preferred supplier agreements in place with two labour providers. This affords us access to further inducted and trained personnel. We also adopt a supervisor to crew ratio of 1:4 and equipment to crew ratio of 2:1. We pride ourselves in training and equipping our personnel to the highest standard. 

 

Storage Facility

Our storage facilities have a comprehensive 24/7 monitored “back-to-base” security alarm system. We also maintain regular fire and pest prevention programs. Furniture items are stored in secure individual consignment lots and easily accessible for inspection purposes.  The security of our client’s goods are of utmost importance to us.


Vehicles

TRC maintains a fleet of fully enclosed furniture moving vehicles fitted with hydraulic tailgates, air-ride suspension, furniture pads, furniture ties, equipment and toolboxes. Our fleet of purpose built trucks with custom strapping system secures trolleys so there is no damage to library books whilst in transit

Equipment
TRC has specialised, custom built fully enclosed steel library trolleys with adjustable shelves which allow for fast sequential packing and excellent protection for library books.

Our manual handling equipment list is extensive and caters for all lifting and loading requirements.

 

All our equipment and vehicles are maintained to the highest standards.
