With Houston being home to the Texas Medical Center, medical equipment is constantly being shipped into and out of the medical center.

When researching a company to ship and receive medical equipment as freight, we have the following suggestions:

 Choose a company that has been shipping and receiving medical equipment on a regular basis. Verify that the company is used to handling high value and delicate items.

 Check and see how long the current owners of the business have been handling freight shipping and receiving of medical equipment.

Look for a company that can un box, or un crate medical equipment.  They must be able to receive the freight and protect lenses, arms and feet of equipment that is being  loaded and delivered. Remember that each piece of medical equipment will need to be handled differently.

 Ask about valuation coverage for the items that the company will receive and then deliver the medical equipment.

Always be prepared to give the weight and dimensions of the equipment so that the proper number of personnel will be on hand to provide the unloading and delivery of the equipment.

As with any hospital environment, set up the delivery time ahead of time with the hospital administration.

Medical Equipment Shipping Details

Posted on Mon, Jun 23, 2014

Shipping of medical equipment requires special consideration. Equipment must be handled appropriately throughout the packing and shipping process to verify it arrives with complete functionality. Some details to consider when shipping medical equipment include:


Size and Quantity
The size and amount of medical equipment being shipped will influence how it is shipped. Smaller items can be shipped in boxes whereas bigger items may require custom pallets or crates. A significant quantity being shipped out of the country  may make a container worthwhile.



Final Destination
If the destination is overseas it may make sense to pack and load the medical equipment into containers.  In addition, selecting a shipping company that has experience dealing with overseas shipping is recommended. There will be international paperwork required and a company that routinely ships overseas will be able to handle the paperwork for the customer.  
Experience
Selecting a shipping company that has experience handling medical equipment is suggested. Each medical equipment item will have its own unique requirements. Certain aspects will require special attention and protection during the packing and shipping process.  A shipping company with experience handling medical equipment will have the expertise required to provide each item proper handling.
Pickup Location
Consider where the medical equipment will need to be picked up from. If it has been purchased from a private doctors' office it will be necessary for the shipping company to have access to the office. This would be a different situation than equipment obtained from a medical equipment auction site. Verify the shipping company you will be using can pickup from the equipment location.

Houston is home to many hospitals systems.  Just a few are listed below.


Memorial Hermann   
St. Joseph Medical Center     
Houston Methodist Hospital  System  
St. Lukes's Medical System

Texas Children's Hospital





Look for a company that has experience safely moving a variety of medical equipment including:
•    Medical examination tables
•    Microscopes
•    Diagnostic equipment
•    Autoclaves
•    Physical therapy equipment
•    and more

Shipping Medical Equipment in Houston

Posted on Thu, Apr 17, 2014


With 106 hospitals in the Houston Texas metropolitan area and countless doctors offices there are times medical equipment needs to be moved from one facility to another.  Medical facilities in the Houston area include:

•    Houston Medical Center
•    Texas Medical Center
•    Houston Northwest Medical Center
•    Menninger Clinic
•    Memorial Hermann
•    St. Luke's Medical Center
•    St. Joseph Medical Center
•    Houston Methodist Hospital
•    Medical Clinic of Houston
•    University of Texas
•    and many more

A one size fits all approach will not work when packing and shipping medical equipment.  Shipping medical equipment requires specialized expertise. 

Items that may need to be packed and shipped include:
•    microscopes
•    medical examination tables
•    autoclaves
•    high value diagnostic equipment
•    physical therapy equipment

The specific aspects of the equipment need to be taken into account prior to packing and shipping. For a microscope, specialized packing needs to be done to protect the lenses. High value diagnostic equipment will also have special requirements.  Each piece of medical equipment needs to be handled differently to ensure defect-free delivery.  You will want to select a moving company that has experience handling medical equipment moves and that employs a moving crew that has been trained specifically for carefully handling medical equipment. They should be trained in proper:
•    Packing
•    Loading
•    Delivery
•    Unloading
•    Unpacking

The moving crew needs to know how to box, crate or freight medical equipment.  They should handle each piece of medical equipment differently.  Focus should be placed on protecting the vital aspect of the specific item.

If you are moving your medical equipment internationally appropriate paperwork must be prepared and filed. Consider hiring a shipping company that has experience with international processes and paperwork so they can assist you.

Medical Equipment Shipping Is Simple When Done Right

Posted on Fri, Jan 24, 2014

 

When there comes time for any medical office to be moved extra care needs to be taken when shipping its medical equipment. Quite a large amount of the equipment is, high in value and sensitive.  A moving company with knowledge and experience with medical equipment shipping can make certain it is done correctly and any type of potential damage is avoided. Look for a freight forwarding, freight preparation or moving company that has experience packing and shipping or moving medical equipment.

According to an article in MY Moving Reviews, “Moving medical equipment requires particular expertise and specialized shipping techniques and tools to ensure that the sensitive equipment reach its destination in the same condition in which it left its current location. As medical equipment has different sizes and forms...it can be an exhausting project to organize its relocation.”

Packaging           

One of the keys to successful medical equipment shipping is the packaging process. When it comes time to move medical equipment there are usually no original containers available. An experienced moving company will know the proper way to utilize skids, pallets, crates, boxes and more. The first step is to determine the appropriate size of the materials required. Once done it is then carefully placed around the medical equipment. It will then be able to go through a move or palletized shipping very successfully.

Cost Considerations

Since moving medical equipment is an investment, it's best to utilize the services of an experienced company. They will know a fair price for their work and willingly provide an estimate. The costs involved may be determined by volume of equipment moved based on number of pallets, containers or truckloads required for transportation. The time involved will be a factor as well the manpower necessary to complete the move. Checking to see if the equipment needs to be dismantled so that it can fit inside freight elevators or around corners is necessary.

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.

5 Tips to Make Shipping Medical Equipment Easier

Posted on Fri, Oct 04, 2013

5 Tips to Make Shipping MedicalEquipment Easier and More Efficient 

If you work in a hospital or in anymedical field, you probably know shipping medical equipment can be a delicate process.

Each piece of medical supplies is unique and may need to be handled
differently. The good news is when packaged properly, medical supplies can make it to its final destination without any trouble. Because of this, it is important to know a few tips for shipping medical equipment.

1. Remove any batteries from medical devices, and make sure all medical devices are turned off.

2. Use bubble wrap, peanuts, and/or Styrofoam around all objects to better protect them. Make sure fragile items are properly protected. If packaged correctly, even the most fragile medical
supplies will make it safely to its intended destination, whether the destination is across town or across the country. 

3. Double box items. This allows the items to have added cushioning protection. Thick boxes without cuts or pieces missing work best both when single boxing and double boxing items. 

4. Consider shipping in a crate. For extremely delicate medical supplies, the only logical shipping container might be a crate. Make sure your medical supplies are still carefully packaged for the ultimate protection no matter the size of the shipping container.   For larger items, you may want to consider shipping the medical equipment on a protected pallet.

5. Definately hire a professional shipping company to pack and ship your medical equipment. Let the shipping company know you are shipping medical equipment. It can then be labeled as
"Fragile" and will be handled gentler to make sure your supplies make it to its destination safely.

 Of course, because of the diversity of medical equipment, not every item is going to be packaged exactly the same way.  As an example, a massage table will be packed differently than a centrifuge.   

 

Be sure to hire a company that can pick up your equipment as well as pack and ship it for you. Plan early so that you do not have to ship the equipment overnight.  If you have sold your equipment to an international recipient, make sure that the shipping company that you choose
has experience shipping to international locations.  Extra paperwork and different packaging
materials will be necessary.

If you are shipping domestically, be sure to check out if the receiving location has a loading dock for larger items. If the equipment is being delivered inside a building, extra insurance forms may be required for the inside delivery. This will need to be determined before the equipment is shipped to the new location.  These are just a few of the items to be addressed when shipping medical equipment and medical supplies.

If you need help properly packing and shipping your medical supplies, contact us.  We have experience packing and shipping medical supplies, and we know the proper way to ensure the safety of your products.

Shipping Medical Equipment? Houston Freight Co offers Advice.

Posted on Fri, May 10, 2013

Since medical equipment is quite expensive, shipping medical equipment requires special expertise in the pick up of the equipment, the packing of the equipment and the shipping of the equipment.

With medical equipment now being sold by auction houses as well as universities and medical centers, it is now necessary to find a company that can pick up in various locations.

When looking for an auction shipping company, ask if the company has the required Agent Authorization forms necessary to pick up at an auction.  If you are requesting a pick up at a hospital, be sure to ask which dock will have the equipment on hand. Ask if there is any paperwork to give to the shipping dock.  Make sure you have both the name of the dock personnel as well as their phone number so that an appointment and pick up time can be scheduled ahead of time.

If the medical equipment is being picked up from a university, be sure to ask for the entrance to use to get onto the university.  Ask if you need to enter through a certain parking lot. If there is a contact at the university, be sure to have their phone number on hand so that you can contact them once you are on university property.  Set up an appointment with your contact ahead of time.

Next, we will discuss how to pick a company that can pick up and ship your medical equipment. Look for a company that has experience shipping both domestically and internationally.  Why do we recommend both options?  Companies that purchase medical equipment within the United States often consolidate these purchases for overseas shipping. You need to ask where the medical equipment will ultimately end up. If the equipment is shipping overseas, you need to ask that international wood is used in all parts of the packing materials. This will include all wood pallets and wood crates.

When you need to ship medical equipment, search for a company that has experience packing and shipping high value and delicate items.  Ask questions of the companies that you are researching to ship your medical equipment.  Ask if the firm has shipped for other universities; ask if the company ships for doctor’s offices, universities, hospitals and medical centers. Ask if they can box, crate or even wrap and palletize the shipment.

When looking for a medical equipment shipping company ask some of the following questions: Do they have the capability to value your equipment for pick up and delivery?  Have they asked you if the equipment can be taken apart for less expensive shipping, or does the equipment need to be kept completely set up and ready to use?  If the equipment can only be moved as a whole piece, can the company you choose send it in a truck for you? These may seem like a lot of questions to ask, but even with high value and delicate medical equipment that you are selling, you want to find the right shipping company to deliver the equipment safely.

Due to the delicate and expensive nature of medical equipment, care must be taken when choosing a shipper. The least expensive quote may not be the right choice when shipping medical equipment.

Some of the more commonly shipped pieces of medical equipment that are shipped are:

high value diagnostic equipment

Autoclaves

Microscopes

Physical therapy equipment

Ask if the company can box, crate and freight medical equipment.  Since each piece of medical equipment is handled differently, the company will need to look at each piece individually.  There may need to be protection on the lenses, arms, or feet of the equipment. If the medical equipment needs to be shipped internationally, look for a company that specializes in international freight preparation and international freight shipping

Medical Equipment Shipping- Advice from Houston Company

Posted on Wed, Jan 11, 2012

 

With Houston being home to theTexas  MedicalCenter, medical equipment is constantly being shipped into and out of the medical center.

 When looking for a company to receive medical equipment as freight, we offer the following suggestions:

 Choose a company that ships and receives medical equipment on a regular basis.

  Ask how long the current owners have been handling freight shipping and receiving medical equipment.

Look for a company that can un box, or un crate medical equipment.  The company must be able to receive the freight, and protect lenses, arms and feet of equipment that is being unloaded and delivered.  Remember that each piece of medical equipment will need to be handled differently.

 Ask about valuation coverage for the items that the equipment that the company will receive, unpack and then deliver.

 Always be prepared to give the weight and dimensions of the equipment so that the proper number of personnel will be on hand to provide the unloading and delivery of the equipment.

 Another alternative to freight shipping is small load moving. Inquire if it will be less expensive to move the medical equipment with a small load mover.

 As with any hospital environment, set up the delivery time ahead of time.

 For questions about medical equipment shipping and receiving and small load moving, please feel free to contact pack n send at 713 266 1450.
