Moving Offices

Moving offices requires hundreds of critical tasks to be completed at the same time. Often the responsibility for the relocation is given to an individual when many of the tasks require specific knowledge and expertise that may not be familiar to that person.

And in our experience, Telecoms and IT often seems to be left to the last minute. Potentially, a very stressful situation then!

So trust Trident to be your Move Manager: we have many years’ experience in managing the complexity of ICT relocations, including the orchestration of numerous suppliers, who each in part join together to form your complete ICT estate.

Moreover, we take it personally. We’ve learned that by taking personal responsibility and being accountable to you, we give you the confidence to let us get on with our specialist subject. Allowing you of course deal with the solicitors, estate agents, decorators, carpet fitters, desks, staff…..
