Lab Equipment Shipping
Solutions for Lab Equipment Shipping
Shipping lab and biopharmaceutical equipment isn't an easy task. From fragile glass items to hazardous material, lab shipments require careful planning and unique safety methods to ensure that the journey is accident-free. MoveIt® Specialized Logistics and MoveIt® Freight Solutions have spent years researching and perfecting lab equipment shipping services, be it regionally or internationally. From around the corner to around the world, you can trust the experts at the MoveIt® Companies.
How Does It Work?
When shipping sensitive lab equipment, there’s nothing more important than ensuring it arrives in one piece. Whether you’re transporting analytical instruments or large, heavy equipment, it requires great care to keep these items safe. An additional challenge is added when the shipment necessitates a timely delivery!
At MoveIt®, we use cutting-edge transportation techniques to ensure that each shipment of lab equipment arrives on time and intact. Our teams are trained to handle items that require extreme caution or care. We often use a combination of air ride, blanket wrap shipping, climate-controlled vehicles, and white glove service for fragile, high-quality material or expensive lab equipment. Rather than simply offering a shipping service, we design a custom strategy built around your unique needs.
If you need to transport your lab equipment across international borders, then it’s all the more important that you find a logistics company with a strong background in international shipping. Any small mistake on paperwork could lead to headaches and additional fees down the road. Proper packaging is also important, given that the longer the transit and the more hands it sees, the more likely your equipment is to be damaged.
Why Risk Management?
We study the risks so we can meet your needs. Large freezers and cumbersome observation equipment can't be shipped by most ground shipping companies because they're ill-equipped or unfamiliar with the moving requirements. MoveIt® ground freight shipping, however, has years of proven service in the shipment of lab equipment, which allows customers to rest easy knowing that their shipment is in good hands.

MoveIt® Shipping Insurance
Worried about shipping insurance? We’ve got you covered. Since 1979, we’ve focused on taking a proactive approach to reduce shipping claims. We match suitable modes of transportation and packaging with the value and disposition of items being shipped. Because of this, we have one of the lowest claims incident ratios in the industry!
For the last 25 years, MoveIt has had the same agent and the same insurance policy with Chubb Group®. It covers both new and used goods. In an industry where coverage is often cancelled, this relationship has endured because of our diligence in reducing claims and keeping premium costs in line for customers.
