The Bookcase is Bahrain and Saudi Arabia’s number one educational supplier.
Renowned for its high quality service, and with over 20 years of experience in the industry, The Bookcase is the top one-stop-shop for all your educational needs.
We resource from the leading UK and USA publishers, equipment suppliers and manufacturers, but understand that each customer is unique and tailor our service to meet your specific requirements.
Appropriate paper catalogues are provided to our customers each year, and electronic catalogues are also emailed in list format within our Excel order template document.
Should customers need to locate a specific item, The Bookcase staff are pleased to offer suggestions and arrange for the relevant information, catalogue, website or contact address to be sent to the school.
Attention to detail at The Bookcase
The Bookcase ships directly to schools from its warehouse complex in Bahrain via a continuous supply chain of dedicated sea freight containers from the UK, USA and Australia. Teamed with weekly air freight from the UK this ensures year-round prompt delivery. For non Bahrain based customers, the goods continue for export under our experienced care via road transport, through customs, and onwards to the school.
Items can be packed specifically per department to allow easier checking off at the school site. For libraries, we offer a processing service of applying school stamps, plastic jackets, Dewey labels, and date slips.
With a workforce of over 25 staff and a fleet of 5 vehicles, our clients include the largest British schools in both Bahrain and Saudi Arabia, who have been loyal and satisfied customers for many years, although we are of course delighted to take on new school business at any time.
It is our pleasure to assist and advise with textbooks, libraries, furniture, stationery, sports, science equipment and any other item which may be required.
School supplies to your doorstep
The Bookcase warehouse team checks off and repacks each order into friendly “teacher sized” boxes with clear delivery labels and electronic packing notes.
Goods are then delivered using The Bookcase’s own transport fleet or via a reliable courier service overland direct to your door. The recipient is provided with an easy to use “ box ticking off sheet” to ensure that all the packages have been received. If delivery to different locations is required, or support with forklifts or manpower is needed, this can be arranged.
The Bookcase is proud to be a member of the “British Schools of the Middle East” organisation, and supplies its entire Saudi membership with their educational equipment and books in addition to supplying other prestigious international schools in the region. Our reputation is important to us, so please ask for references which we will be pleased to provide.
Capable managers, with over 10 years of experience in their roles, lead a dedicated team to handle orders and enquiries, negotiating the best terms for our customers. We will always request and pass on any extra discount given by suppliers for a new implementation for example.
The Bookcase Educational Resources department is able to provide a bespoke tailored experience for new school projects.
Working with our major suppliers, we can assist in designing a suitable learning environment for your students and recommend an appropriate school curriculum. Whether you are refurbishing a room, or opening a new building, The Bookcase can offer advice on suitable products, ranging from furniture to science equipment from our broad base of suppliers.
With access to computer assisted design (CAD), we can ensure that space is used to its full potential. Pre-prepared recommended class product lists are also available to save time and act as a guide for ordering. Your personal Bookcase account manager will be pleased to provide the latest catalogues, advice on delivery time frames, and visit the location of the site or school where possible.
