Project scope

Relocate Shropshire Council

Our key tasks

  • 1,200 staff moved
  • Temporary double moves of staff
  • Sequential file packing and unpacking
  • File audits and mapping
  • Confidential files sequentially packed and sealed

When Shropshire Council replaced their two-tier local government structure, roughly 1,200 staff needed to move within buildings and between locations across the county. Some of these moves were temporary double moves and included sometimes conflicting and sensitive needs in terms of continuing service delivery.

Our project management working hand-in-hand with the client

We believe in working closely with our clients, so they have their needs met and if changes to the plan need to be made, they can be done quickly and with little disruption. We asked the council to create a move communications team, made up of a core project team and a group of move champions from each department. We provided a dedicated project manager and helpline to provide constant support throughout the move process.

Confidential security and minimal disruption

In addition to sequential file packing and unpacking, file audits and mapping, our packers also packed (sequentially) several thousand metres of confidential filing into filing crates. They were sealed with a one-way cable tie with a unique serial number.

Where possible, we moved storage cabinets fully intact to their new location mechanically, saving the time and disruption of unpacking and re-packing the cabinets.

Came back quickly with a quote

They were fantastic, so helpful, polite and efficient - even with only one lift working! Used BCL because you came back quickly with a quote and worked around not being able to get into the office which was a great help. 

Thanks again to the team on the day that were brilliant and to Piers for putting up with all my calls and changing dates - fantastic service all round! Had a prompt reply from the initial enquiry and great customer service.

Seamless, professional and issue free

I wanted to take a moment to say a big thank you to you and your teams for support the relocation/reconfiguration of the furniture on the 2nd floor. It was seamless, professional and issue free. I have noticed the team working a few times, in my car whilst driving past the old library some weeks ago and of course I have been present at times during the move the last couple of weeks. The team is a credit to the business. They all worked extremely hard and quietly  SMBC is very happy with the output as are Robertson. Please pass on the thanks to the team.

Stockport Council

Professional, efficient and tremendously helpful

May I take this opportunity of offering a huge thanks to you and your extremely professional team.

Your personnel, to a man, were very professional, efficient and tremendously helpful, coupled with being very courteous. An absolute pleasure to deal with and nothing was too much trouble.

So many thanks to you all at BCL and I would have no hesitation in recommending your firm.

I would appreciate it if you would pass on my comments to the whole team.
