Client Requirements

Keoghs required a removal firm to undertake a series of moves for its London operation at Holland House, to new premises at Plantation House in London.

The bulk of the move would consist of files to be moved.


Keoghs is a law firm and placed a high priority on data security. Pickfords had to take into account the potentially sensitive nature of the files being moved. The management team at Keoghs was reassured that Pickfords was well qualified to assist them in complying with the regulatory requirements and protecting its data during the relocation.

Pickfords ensured that integration between its own security measures and Keoghs delivered an effective solution.

The following security measures were a fundamental part of the service to Keoghs:

  • All Pickfords staff were Disclosure and Baring Service (DBS) cleared

  • Pickfords’ personnel were identified by uniforms and security passes

  • Names were supplied in advance

  • Crates were lidded and security sealed

  • Pickfords’ staff were experienced commercial removal operatives

  • Pickfords’ staff kept to the designated work areas only

  • A driver remained in attendance with each vehicle at all times

  • Vehicles were securely locked when not in use

  • Vehicle registrations were supplied in advance

Pickfords service included:

  • Day 1: 160 standard crates delivered to Holland House

  • Day 2: Collected 28 cabinets from Holland House

  • Day 3: Collected 160 crates and a further 20 cabinets and delivered them to Plantation House

  • Day 4: Collected 160 empty crates from Plantation House and returned them to Holland House

  • Day 5: Delivered a further 180 standard, and 60 IT crates to Holland House

  • Day 6: Transferred 340 crates, data safe, and 60 IT crates from Holland House to Plantation House.
