Data Center Relocation Services

McCollister’s Technical Services (MTS) has a team of highly experienced technicians, project managers, IT movers, packers, drivers, and support staff with hundreds of successful data center relocation projects completed in every major market in the USA.

MTS has the technical and logistical capabilities to relocate data centers and IT assets of all sizes, from a single rack relocation to a data center with a footprint of thousands of racks and assets. MTS has experience in relocations to and from co-location facilities, customer-owned sites, purpose-built data centers, data closets in offices, and stand-alone equipment.

MTS technicians have de-commissioned, de-installed, relocated, and re-installed approximately 99% of all varieties of IT Enterprise Hardware found in the data center today, so regardless of the requirement, MTS will design a comprehensive end-to-end relocation solution.

MTS has relationships with all of the major Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM’s) for equipment that may be under maintenance contracts from the principle. MTS can schedule, coordinate, and deliver any onsite work for equipment under a maintenance contract, from the principle or a 3rd party, to include inside the data center relocation scope. This is a very important and oft-overlooked component as it allows the equipment designated to move to remain under maintenance, greatly reducing the risks involved in moving IT systems.
