St Helens Law required the merging of two town centre offices into one location which involved the movement of approx 130 staff. From a service and profitability aspect, it was imperative that there was no company downtime throughout the relocation.
The Removal Team tendered for and were successful in being awarded the contract to relocate St Helens Law from their existing offices in St Helens to a new recently renovated office the other side of town. The Removal Team liaised closely with the appointed St Helens Law Project Co-ordinator to advise and instruct on how to best implement the move.
“The client stated that it was imperative the move had zero impact on the service delivery of the company. We therefore planned the relocation to commence on a late Friday afternoon at 5pm. It was vital that all St Helens Law staff and IT had to be operational first thing on the following Monday morning at 09.00am,” said Paul Tinsley, Commercial Operations Manager.
For the relocation, The Removal Team conducted a thorough Health and Safety and Risk Assessment audit, provided over 550 secure and robust storage crates with colour coded labels and security tags, and deployed an 18te Class 2 & 2 x 7.5te removal trucks, 3 Team Leaders and an additional 12 Porters.
On the day of the relocation, our specialist IT team were required to decommission, pack and wrap various high worth equipment from each desk into secure IT crates. These were then carefully loaded along with the furniture onto our trucks with the aid of a 1.5te tail-lift for ease and safe protection of the goods.
Where required, desks and cabinets were dismantled to enable them to be moved out of the offices with ease and to eliminate damage to not only the furniture but to the building. These were then reassembled upon delivery.
At 10:00pm that evening, the fully loaded removal vehicles were parked indoors overnight in our secure purpose built storage facility. The following day, the furniture, IT equipment and crates were delivered to the new offices. The exact location of the items within the building were detailed on our plans, and the items were thus positioned accordingly.
By 3:00pm Saturday afternoon (2 hours ahead of schedule), all of the planned relocation was successfully completed with St Helens Law all ready to start servicing their clients again on Monday morning!
“We have used The Removal Team on several occasions. I never thought that you could ever describe a removal company as “professional” but they are.
They are welll organised and personable. The staff work very hard to please and they know what they are doing. Nothing seems too much for them. I would recommend this company every time without reservation.”
