When you need to send laboratory equipment overseas, there are many factors to consider. From the way that you pack your equipment to the labelling you use and the customs requirements of individual countries, getting your equipment to its destination is not always easy.
At PACK & SEND we provide a safe, secure and speedy delivery service for all lab equipment deliveries. We deliver all over the world, and over 30 years of experience has made us the courier of choice for many companies in the UK when it comes to deliveries of fragile equipment internationally.
When you ship laboratory equipment abroad, it is essential that your deliveries are packed correctly. Aside from the need to protect sensitive equipment from damage, there are strict international regulatory standards when it comes to delivering medical equipment and supplies, so you have to be even more careful when sending laboratory equipment than you do with most other items.
When you send laboratory equipment overseas, packing your deliveries yourself may appear to reduce costs, but you should be aware of all of the requirements to avoid mistakes that could lead to items being damaged or lead to delays and fines. This includes making sure your items remain secure throughout their transit through using high-quality packaging built from robust materials to prevent damage to the equipment from occurring.
Alternatively, when you transport fragile equipment globally, you can use our specialist packing for laboratory equipment. Using our packing services avoids any issues and means that you can take our loss or damage protection cover as well. We can pack any equipment, no matter what its size or value, to ensure that it will arrive in its destination securely.
As well as using our specialist packing service to ensure safe delivery of your goods, whenever you deliver laboratory equipment abroad we can also provide advice on customs requirements.
Failing to take heed of customs regulations in both the UK and the country to which you are sending your lab equipment can lead to delays, recalls and even fines. We stay up to date with customs requirements in many international territories, so we can provide you with help and advice so you can deliver your laboratory equipment to its destination on time and reduce the chances of any problems occurring.
If you plan to deliver laboratory equipment overseas then make sure that you avoid any problems by using our specialist packing and delivery service. Not only will we ensure that your items are packaged carefully and professionally, so that they arrive undamaged and in perfect condition, but we can also provide our unique loss and damage protection cover for ultimate peace of mind.
