The Reality of Medical Equipment Shipping

Posted on Wed, Oct 09, 2013

 

When the time comes for a
medical office to move it can be a challenge to ship such delicate machines as
computed tomography scanners, MRI devices, x-ray machines and more. 
Professional movers can prepare such equipment to endure the difficulty of any
distance move.  Transportation of medical equipment will require the machines toendure shocks and vibrations as well as leaning and more. 

When looking for a quote for shipping medical equipment, it’s important to be certain it contains
everything associated with the relocation.  Items to look at are packaging
specs, valuation requirements, time availability and the extent of packing as
well as unpacking at the new location.  There may be
situations where the new area has to be made ready for the arrival of medical
equipment. 

Once a medical equipment
shipper has been chosen, it’s essential that the medical office and the shipper
have a clear understanding as to the dates and times.  Getting equipment
to a new

location and then up and running can impact
revenue.    Elevators may need to be reserved. Professionals who ship
medical equipment will understand the need to accommodate your specific time
frame.  They transport the medical equipment to the new location as
requested.  

There are various ways to ship medical equipment.  Some equipment may be blocked and braced and put inside a custom built crate.

Other medical equipment may be wrapped and protected for shipping and then strapped to a pallet for freight shipping.  Medical equipment can also be moved by a blanket wrap
mover.

If the move is on an international level all solid wood used for the move must be stamped with an official mark.   For larger international moves of medical equipment
either 20 foot or 40 foot containers can be used.

Since medical equipment
varies by manufacturer and type of equipment, look for a company that has
experience moving and crating high value items. 

Within a medical
center, equipment may often need to be moved from one building to another. The
preparation for these moves will require careful planning and packing. 

Statistics from the Bureau of Transportation show that over 40 million tons of good worth
approximately $30 billion are moved thousands of miles domestically each
day.  Each shipment is tracked as it leaves and when it arrives at
its destination. Professional movers who do medical equipment shipping
have the knowledge and experience to handle any situation.
