move a ethernet wiring closet

He a need a little advice. I currently have a wireing closet in my office punched down to a 18 port patch cable. I must move the wiring closet serveral feet away. Knowing that many of the wires are not going to reach, what is my best option.

Rerun all runs back to the wall outlets. Mount the patch panel in the previous closet out of the way and extend new lines from there to the the closet? Any ideas are greatly appreciated!

If a vertical remount isn't enough out-of-the-way, generally I'd reterminate on a ceilingspace/box 110 and yank the patch panel. Crossconnect from the 110 to the new patch panel. T-568 allows this as a "consolidation point".
