You and your designated movers.are responsible for physically uncrating and moving the cabinets, and should be aware of the following information.

To prepare to transport, move, and install a cabinet that is not fully loaded, your Teradata team can estimate the weight.

  • The size and weight of the cabinet require that professional movers deliver the crated units.
  • The cabinet is shipped in a crate with a built-in skid under it. This skid has a clearance of 9.5 cm (3.75 in.) for a forklift or pallet jack to move the unit. The increased height of the shipping container may preclude moving the unit without uncrating it. It may not fit into an elevator on a shipping pallet.
  • The cabinet is top heavy. Do not push it from the side. Push it from front to back. Never move the cabinet with only one person.
To prevent or minimize condensation on the system's internal and external surfaces, avoid exposure to extreme temperature or humidity changes.
