William Tracey & Sons:
About Us

William Tracey & Sons (WTS) can trace it's roots back to a time when Ireland was suffering one of the worst snow storms in it's history and the harsh conditions made fuel and food scarce for both man and beast.

Established in 1947 by William Tracey senior and incorporated in 1982 by sons William and James, what started out as a small family business delivering onion sets nationwide, shoes to Donegal and aluminum to Wexford developed into a successful moving and transport company operating in both the public and private sectors. With a proven track record in the moving industry, working with many state and private institutions, we are specialist corporate movers, offering a wide range of quality services numerous business in Ireland: moving office, libraries and archives relocation, artefacts and fine art removal and storage and more.

In 2022, WTS became part of Cronin Movers Group, a specialist logistics business that share our values and commitment to customer service. Due to our legacy in industry the WTS brand identity is being retained. We will continue to grow our business and serve our customers as part of a larger group.

WTS has established a reputation for providing an excellent high quality and value for money service in Ireland.


We are committed to the highest professional standards. So we take great pride in regularly receiving positive feedback from our clients on the work our teams deliver.

William Tracey & Sons were engaged to relocate our offices from Fitzwilliam Hall, Dublin 2 to Pembroke Road, D4. The move involved the relocation of 40 staff, their personal effects, filing and computer equipment. I have always found the company to be extremely reliable and punctual and their staff very efficient, flexible and courteous.  Our move was seamless from start to finish and this was due in no small part to the professional approach from staff and management at WTS whom I would have no hesitation in recommending to any prospective client.

A big thanks to all the team for providing me with such a professional and efficient service in the relocation of books and shelving to new library and store room. You were all very helpful and patient and listened to what was required for the new Library – I was also very impressed that the job was completed ahead of time!

I will certainly recommend William Tracey & Sons to other Libraries.

Fiona Lawlor

” I just wanted to say that we at BPFI were extremely pleased with the work that William Tracey & Sons provided for us from the beginning of our move up until the finish.  The professionalism the guys showed was outstanding, with Colin advising me what we would require for the move down to Narcis and team of guys.  They worked tirelessly on the day of the move and everything went so smoothly.  This is the third move I have worked on with William Tracey & Sons and would have no hesitation in recommending them for future work.”

Tara Ward

“William Tracey & Sons Ltd were engaged to relocate 900 members of staff from our building at 1 HSQ, St. John’s Road, Dublin 8, to various locations throughout Dublin.  The move consisted of personal crates, IT equipment, filing, storage units, office chairs and safes.  The move was carried out in a timely and professional manner and I would have no hesitation in recommending them.  The staff are extremely polite and obliging and nothing is a problem for them.  Colin and Michelle who managed the moves are a pleasure to deal with and I look forward to working with them again in the future.

Our Commitment to Corporate Social Responsibility

At WTS, as part of Cronin Movers Group we aim to proactively support our local community and play our part in protecting our natural environment. We pride ourselves on building long lasting relationships with the charities and organisations we support. Below are just some of the relationships our group has formed over many years.

Home Farm Football Club

We support Home Farm through a 5 year sponsorship deal. The deal will provide some much needed funding to help the club continue its great work encouraging and supporting local young people to develop their skills, not only in football, but in being part of a team and experiencing the benefits of training. These are life skills that they take with them into the world of work.

Bowling League of Ireland Academy

We are delighted to support the Bowling League of Ireland Academy part of the controlling bodies for Lawn Bowling in the Republic of Ireland. The Academy encourages and supports the next generation of talent in Lawn Bowling.

Men in Sheds (Mulhuddart)

As part of our business operations we endeavour to minimise waste and we actively encourage recycling and reuse. Our support to Men in Sheds includes providing broken pallets and offcuts from export crating that can be repurposed by this fantastic group.

Supporting the environment

At our Dublin base on the edge of the Industrial Estate, we have increased our focus on our natural environment. On our property we are embracing biodiversity by cultivating a mini-meadow with wild grasses and flowers to support pollination and provide a habitat that encourages insects and birds. We have also upcycled off-cuts of timber from our crating work to make bird boxes, which cater for different species of birds and have been hung up adjacent to our meadow.

Peter McVerry Trust

Every year the Peter McVerry Cycle – a 130km cycle from Dublin to Wexford raises vital funds for the Peter McVerry Trust. This well-known charity is a national housing and homeless charity committed to reducing homelessness and the harm caused by substance misuse and social disadvantage. Our Cronin Movers team provide our free time and cover the costs of running support vehicles for the cyclists taking part in this worthwhile charity event.
