The Challenge:

  • Minimum disruption to Rathbone Brothers staff and operations prior to and after the core phase.
  • To have all affected staff “up & running” and “ready to work” by a pre-agreed time on the Monday morning following the weekend relocation.

The Project:

  • Flexible and adaptable approach to the move programme from day 1 to final project sign off – including provision of a dedicated Relocation Consultant and customer services team.
  • Crew consistency with provision of specialist protection, packing, porterage and IT personnel.

The Outcome:

  • Provision of cost certainty and transparency for the duration of the programme.
  • Identification of efficiencies and savings as the planned programme matured.
  • Safe and secure transit of all items with particular emphasis on IT and confidential filing.

Rathbone Brothers required the supply of removal services to relocate staff effects, materials and  general business assets  including chairs, packing, transport and   unpacking of c1545 linear metres of filing (much of it highly confidential), safes, key safes, reproduction tables, credenzas (dismantle, move and reassembly) and various MFD’s together with full desktop IT Decommission, audit, pack, move and place. All telephony equipment was also relocated and deep cleaned.

With a tight schedule to complete the move in a single core phase over the weekend of 24th February 2012, every aspect of Restore Harrow Greens thirty year move management experience and expertise was required to deliver the move on time and on budget. Detailed pre-move planning, staff briefings and orientation visits for our move personnel ensured everyone involved in the move was fully prepared and aware of their responsibilities as well as understanding how the programme was to be delivered.

Client Feedback

Just to say the large move went exceptionally well over the weekend. Thanks for attending the planning meetings, Daryl and his team worked well under pressure, and Louise in customer services turned round our additional requirements really quickly. We were all very impressed with the speed in which we were moved. Will definitely use you guys again.
