“I recently had a free standing library built opposite my front door, in order to store my 5,000 books, and 6,000 vinyl albums/singles.
After much deliberation, I decided to use a professional firm, to undertake the racking, as wooden shelving, and units, would simply be no use, due to the sheer volume and weight of the goods stored.
To this end, I searched on-line, and came across a leading UK company, that specializes in all kinds of storage systems, often catering for libraries and museums. having assumed my task would be too small for such a leading company, I was pleasantly surprised to receive a telephone call from Rackline UK Limited, confirming notice of my interest. having explained my proposed storage space was rather small in comparison to the majority of work carried out, I was assured the company listens to all its customers regardless of size.
Mr Jeff Hibbert, a director at Rackline, called me personally later in the day, and we discussed my requirements.
He rather kindly drove all the way over from Stoke-on-Trent, to my premises in South Yorkshire, in order to view the proposals. having measured up, Jeff then wrote to me later in the week, enclosing professional plans/drawings of the suggested work to be carried out.
I explained, that as I was planning more plastering work, skirting boards, and carpeting fitted later, any proposed measurements would be futile. again, Mr Hibbert kindly visited me a month later in order to measure and plan the proposed work to the millimetre!
I explained the building contained air vents, and electric sockets. this was not a problem, as measurements included areas where the steel racking would be die-cut to suit accordingly.
Following an agreement to an affordable rate, the wheels were set in motion, and I can confirm, I was so pleased to have chosen this long-standing professional organisation, to carry out my requirements.
The standard and quality of workmanship is second to none, and the professional workmen, that then delivered and fitted my steel shelving were also extremely professional, and skilled, delighting me with their service.
I can quite clearly recommend this company to anyone considering such storage space, and will remain, satisfied in the knowledge, that Rackline Limited are the company to trust.”
Bill Brealey – South Yorkshire
“The project was to install mobile shelving in our new storage facilities. Tom was excellent at coming in and planning and quoting for the job and all of our requirements were met. It was excellent that after a later site visit and seeing the modified layout of the store he suggested the designs were modified in order to give us longer tracks to allow for more shelving to be added at a later date.”
World Rugby Museum – Deborah Mason
“Just a quick email to say a huge thanks for all the hard work that Alex and his team have carried out at our Library HQ at Skirlaugh this week. They have completed dismantling the shelves here and now have the even more arduous task of getting them up the stairs at the new site and re-assembling them!
They have worked tirelessly all week…here at just after 7.00am and staying until the building closed in the evening. Considering the enormity of the task we hardly knew they were here as they caused no disruption to our routines. They ensured that we could access all the areas we needed to and worked in an amazingly tidy and efficient way. The whole team was fantastic and it was a pleasure to work with them. Please could you pass on our sincere thanks to them all as we may not see them again.”

Recommended – Very good service
P & A Shopfitting Paul Knock
“Very good service overall and installed in good time. The only slight problem we had at the time was that the team left behind a metal door which was part of the old filing system, but after a phone call to your head office, this was remedied quickly and couriers came to take it away. But overall we were very pleased with the whole process.”
Cornwall Council Adult Social Services – Gemma Stone
“We were very pleased with the efficiency of the team both on site and in the office”

PVH Europe – Tommy Hilfiger, Matthew Hawley
“Rackline offered us a bespoke and competitively priced design that suited the particular demands of our site. The design team were approachable and flexible, finding effective solutions to all the issues, such as awkwardly placed columns in many of the storerooms, that arose during the project. The installation team carried out their work to plan with a minimum of disruption.”

Tolent Living, Martin Mitchinson
“Really prompt & professional service. Jennifer was a great help in terms of interpreting our requirements and devising an appropriate solution (relocation & reconfiguration of an existing rolling rack system), and the fitters completed the work very quickly with minimum disruption to staff onsite.”
North Tyneside Council, Nick Raw
“We had a very tight deadline within which to get the shelves we wanted quoted on, ordered, supplied and installed. Rackline were great in helping us to achieve this. The shelving is exactly what we wanted and full of museum objects already!”
Arts University Bournemouth, Katherine Pell
“It was due to a major flood that we found ourselves having to seek replacement shelving. I have to say that some of the sales people from other companies were less than helpful in these difficult circumstances, but Jeff Hibbert from Rackline was incredibly supportive, helpful and patient through every stage of the planning. All aspects were considered, which resulted in a smooth and swift installation. We’re so pleased with the results – the bespoke shelving safely accommodates our various formats and has increased storage capacity significantly.”
