The fragile components of high-tech medical equipment must be considered when looking to transport a device from one location to another. Planning should be done beforehand to make sure there are plenty of safeguards in place to protect the equipment. Here we will discuss how to safely ship medical equipment with ease.

It can be challenging to ship medical equipment, especially when it is oversized and bulky. The interior of a trailer can pose a risk if additional measures are not taken to secure the freight. However, taking advantage of secured divider service reduces the risk of damage to medical equipment freight with a bracing system and separated from other LTL shipments on the trailer. You Crate's secured devider service, in partnership with R+L Carriers, Inc., is an excellent solution for shipping medical equipment.

How Secured Divider Works

Clients figuring out how to ship medical equipment will work with one of our experienced staff members to obtain a quote to transport and deliver the device.

  • Load – When the truck arrives, the customer loads the medical device at the front of the trailer.
  •  Secure -- The freight is tied down with braces and blocked with a bulkhead wall separating it from the rest of the trailer. Additional steps may be taken to protect the equipment like crating or blanket covering to prevent abrasion.
  • Sealed -- The freight is secured with a lock and sealed along with e-straps to keep everything in place to prevent loss and damage like vibration shock. Once signed for at final destination the seal is removed.

Once the medical equipment is loaded on the trailer, it is never moved again until reaching the final destination for delivery. This gives customers a peace of mind to know the device will not be touched or at risk of theft or damage.
