Data Center Relocation and Decommissioning


As technology advances, you may have the opportunity to consolidate data centers or move into smaller spaces. Or you may find you need to decommission some data centers altogether. But these projects are complex, especially where relocations are concerned - and must often happen on weekends or after hours to minimize any disruption of service. With Quick’s Data Center Relocation and Decommissioning services, a team of experts will develop a comprehensive plan for moving your equipment from one or more sites to another – overseeing each step of the process. This includes breakdown, packing and transport or destruction or recycling of everything from servers, routers, related computer equipment and phone equipment, to media tapes, hubs and switches, to air conditioning units and more. Our goal is to relocate your data center as quickly and cost effectively as possible with:

  • End-to-end project management with complete project planning, hands-on coordination with other onsite trades or vendors and execution to keep the project on time and within budget
  • A dedicated site manager who acts as a single point-of-contact for internal IT and security departments as well as all vendors, building managers, leasing companies, recyclers and warehouse facilities
  • Full service capabilities including de-installation, packing and crating as well as shipping and assembly at the new location
  • Fast, secure air and ground transportation solutions for direct drive chain of custody transports, next day and second day delivery to locations across the US
  • An unmatched chain of custody with asset numbers for each item, moves made in sealed vans or trucks and shipments monitored throughout transit to ensure security
  • GPS capabilities that track and monitor the movement of your shipments in real time, providing specific data reports to verify temperature, exposure to light and chain of custody
  • Specialized vehicles and processes to ensure security as well as safety of temperature sensitive media and equipment
  • Complete reverse logistics including end-of-lease retrievals, swap outs, redeployments, recycling, storage and consolidation
