Office relocations can be daunting tasks, requiring meticulous planning and execution to ensure a smooth transition and minimal disruption to business operations. Konica Minolta, a renowned provider of comprehensive IT services, recently undertook a significant move from central London to their existing offices in Basildon, Essex. To ensure a seamless relocation and enable the client to quickly resume business, Konica Minolta chose Bishop's Move, a trusted name in the removals and storage industry, as their preferred commercial relocation company.
Meeting the Client's Requirements:
This particular relocation involved moving three entire floors of equipment, office furniture, and meeting room essentials over a four-day period. Given the high value and specification of the offices, as well as the volume of items to be moved, a full audit was undertaken prior to any movement of assets. Bishop's Move then allocated a dedicated team to dismantle, pack, and wrap all furniture and equipment at the central London location. This meticulous process took two full days to complete, ensuring that everything was adequately protected for the journey to Essex.
Bishop's Move deployed a total of 54 staff members, including specialist fitters, porters, and electricians, to execute the project. To ensure a well-coordinated effort, an on-site move manager oversaw the entire process, working closely with Konica Minolta's team and the relocation specialists. This collaborative approach ensured efficient execution and effective communication throughout the relocation.
Efficiency and Professionalism:
Adam, the Employee Experience & Communications Partner at Konica Minolta, expressed his satisfaction with the relocation process, highlighting the professionalism and efficiency of Bishop's Move's staff:
"Everything was great and the guys onsite were fab. All team members were efficient, professional and extremely helpful at all times. Couldn’t be happier with how the move went.”
Bishop's Move offered an array of services to meet Konica Minolta's specific needs. Before the physical relocation, our experienced team conducted full on-site surveys and planning meetings to gather all necessary information and devise an optimal moving strategy. Throughout the process, a dedicated project manager provided support, ensuring that every aspect of the relocation was meticulously planned and executed.
Additionally, Bishop's Move provided packing support, ensuring that all items were appropriately packed and secured for transportation. Our expertise in handling delicate equipment and furniture minimised the risk of damage during transit. Once the items reached the new location, the team diligently unloaded, unpacked, and installed everything, completing the installation within the agreed timeframe.
This particular commercial relocation exemplified a successful collaboration between two industry-leading companies, Bishop's Move and Konica Minolta. All phases of this 7 day move were completed on time and too budget.
By entrusting their office relocation to Bishop's Move, Konica Minolta experienced a seamless transition from central London to their offices in Basildon, Essex. The dedication, professionalism, and expertise demonstrated by Bishop's Move's staff ensured that the client's requirements were met with efficiency and precision.
