High Tech Equipment Demands High Tech Logistics: White Glove Solutions


There are many tech industries that are often in need of specialised logistics; huge data centres with bank upon bank of server blocks, technical manufacturing plants that have to be relocated, or indeed new tech equipment that needs to be delivered, installed and configured. If you were thinking that a regular commercial removalist can handle such a project, think again, as it requires highly trained technicians that are very familiar with the equipment.

Handling expensive and delicate technical equipment demands expert knowledge and when you deal with the right white glove provider, you can rest assured they know their stuff.
  • White Glove Collection – The opposite of a delivery, where the company would remove the equipment and either take it to another location and reinstall the system, or dispose of it responsibly.

  • White Glove Relocation – If a company are moving to a new, larger premises and they wish to have technical equipment relocated and reinstalled, set up and configured, ready for testing. Relocation such as this occurs frequently, as tech businesses grow, and having a white glove specialist available is essential to their continued growth.
