Game, set and match for Bishop's

Oct 20, 2016

Bishop's Move Business Relocation has recently won the contract for move management for the All England Lawn Tennis Club (AELTC), Wimbledon for the relocation of items from its No: 1 court.  The items needed to be relocated while the famous court is fitted with a sliding roof similar to that on the Centre Court.  

Bishop's conducted a survey on-site followed by a three-week planning period to minimise disruption during the building works scheduled for completion before the 2017 championships.  Bishop's was required to pack and export wrap all of the furniture from the suites at No. 1 Court and then remove the blinds, curtains and fitted units. These items were then relocated and repositioned into secure storage areas. The company also dismantled temporary commercial refrigeration units. 

The entire commercial relocation took a 12-man team of professionally trained packers, three removal vans and 14 days to complete. 15,300 metres of packing materials were used.
