We're looking at house that has a brand new fitted kitchen, but it doesn't have room for a kitchen table. I would like to remove some cupboards altogether and move some full length pantry units to a different wall to create space - is that feasible? Last time I took a kitchen out the carcasses more or less crumbled, but it was old, cheap and tatty. Would get a professional in to do the work!
easy. they're only boxes made of chipboard. They are probably screwed to each other, to the wall, and to the worktop, to prevent them wobbling. Find and undo these screws, then wind down the plastic legs (they are telescopic, and screw up or down). The unit will then sink down and you can pull it out. If it doesn't sink or won't pull, then you have missed one or more of the fixing screws.
... Unless it's a basement kitchen, in which case you should consider how it might be lined/damp-proofed. My kitchen is under-ground at the back, and half underground at the front, and has been fully lined with a plastic membrane. You can screw through this to attach things to the walls, but you need to use special fixings that prevent damp then penetrating through the hole you've made.
