Our services can be completely bespoke to suit your requirements

However, as a guideline to help you plan a server relocation or data centre move tend to fall under one, or be a mixture of the following:

IT Equipment Packing and Transportation

This service includes packing your already de-racked servers, switches etc. into our foam lined server flight cases, and transporting along with associated rack mounts, cables etc. to the destination. The equipment is then unpacked and handed over to your team.

De-Rack and Re-Rack

As with our packing option, our team also physically removes the equipment and rack mount arms from the rack, then re-racks everything at the destination according to your agreed rack plan.

De-Commission and Re-Commission

As described, with the addition of our team removing all associated cabling, documenting the process if required. We will then commence re-cabling at the destination according to your agreed rack plan and patching schedule.

Taking the stress out of moving from one data centre facility to another, Custodian strives to make the process as easy as possible, whether that's in the form of setting up short term connectivity solutions or with the physical move itself. In general, we include top of the range Rittal TS IT 47U racks as part of our offering, although if you would prefer to use your own racks we can usually accommodate them and arrange to have them shipped and installed into our facilities. Working with a specialist and experienced partner, we are happy to offer these services in order to give you a single point of contact for as much of the process as possible.

Whether you just require the equipment to be physically moved, or completely de-commissioned and re-commissioned, our engineers will protect your hardware by packing it into purpose built, foam lined, server flight cases with anti-static bubble wrap.

At no time is your equipment left unattended, with our service being completely dedicated and fully insured during relocation, giving you peace of mind that your hardware and data is secure in the transition to your new facility.
