    It's not a 5 minute job. Can't you put some trunking between the existing cabs?

    I'd go for trunking if you can, it'll be a lot easier, unless you have the patience of a saint to remove everything then put it back again.

    If you can show a picture or something? Chances are you'll find some trunking to fit and if there's not much of a gap why go to the hassle of repatching two cabinets.

    Mills Ltd - Structured Cabling & Specialist Tooling is another good place to get kit from, the cabinets from them are much better quality I find than the Comms Express ones.

    There often is enough room to remove the whole patch panel with cables still attached, see how large the opening on the top (if it's from the top) it may have an additional flap to unscrew. You may have to dismantle the cabinet slightly for better access. I*'ve successfully consolidated cabinets this way you may need to unpick one or two cables if they were patched later and from a different route. It's all colour coded anyhow so take you time and btw a digital camera is your friend.
