TECHNICAL MOVES

Comprehensive end to end migration service for critical equipment moves.

Specialist equipment transportation… with care and precision. 
Critical equipment moves require thorough planning, careful transportation and clear destination requirements.

Data Techniques offers a comprehensive service and proven expertise when it comes to moving and reinstating your organisation’s IT equipment. We are used to transporting a wide range of specialist equipment, including: SAN, servers, server blades, switches, telephony, desktop PC and peripheral devices.

“Fail to prepare, prepare to fail” is our mantra when it comes to an equipment migration. We work closely with our clients to ensure that all aspects of the migration are captured prior to commencement of work, ensuring there are no unpleasant surprises on move day.

We start by gathering the facts:

Critical timelines

The key to a successful move starts with creating a timeline and logistics plan including correct vehicle selection, transportation route planning, engineering resource, and key project milestones.

Audit

We start by locating, documenting and labeling all devices. All relevant connectivity is captured to ensure the target destination can be pre patched (if required). The environment is also audited at both sites to ensure devices can be safely moved throughout and between the facilities. All audit information is captured via suitable application software for traceability and record keeping.

Pre patch

Pre patching the target location site provides re-assurance that the new location is expertly cabled and tested ready to receive the incoming IT equipment. This ensures a smooth transition between sites minimising operational disruption.

Transportation and Equipment

We continually invest in specialist IT migration equipment including:

  • Flight cases
  • Skates
  • Server lifters
  • Cabinet lifters
  • Cages
  • Stair walkers
  • Spreader plates

Vehicles range from 3.5 tonne purpose built low loaders to 40 tonne articulated lorries, all of which are fully insured to transport high value, specialist equipment throughout the UK and Europe.
All vehicles are fitted with GPS devices to ensure the security of transported equipment and to aid with route tracking.

Scope

Our IT relocation service ranges from small office moves and server relocations through to large Data Centre and corporate office redeployments.

Regardless of scope, you can be assured that our employed operatives are trained and qualified to ensure that your specialist equipment needs will be handled safely and professionally.
