Precision Planning for Optimal Crate Design: Our journey towards ensuring your equipment’s safety begins with precision planning. During our pre-move survey, our experienced team scrutinizes various factors. We take into account the fragility, composition, size, weight, and value of your equipment.

We design custom blocking and bracing components to secure sensitive parts, ensuring that they remain firmly in place throughout the journey.

Documents and Safety Measures: At Armstrong, our custom crating process begins with a comprehensive documentation phase. We commence with a detailed inventory of your laboratory equipment to be relocated. Our crating specialists delve into transport specifications, humidity indicators (when applicable), temperature requirements, and shock watches. Our commitment to safety extends to managing all necessary documentation, including crate specifications for domestic and international transport, stamps, and export documents.

Our logistics experts are adept at disassembling equipment when required, paying meticulous attention to fragile internal components of high-value items. Our primary goal is to guarantee the secure relocation of every piece.

The Crating Process

Pre-move survey: The foundation of our process is a comprehensive pre-move survey. During a site visit, we assess your relocation requirements and take note of factors such as facility size, destination, distance, and equipment specifics. By understanding the composition, size, weight, and value of each piece, we’re equipped to determine the fabrication needs of custom crates.

Handling Assessment: Understanding what we’re relocating is only part of the equation. Our custom crating service also includes a handling assessment. This involves determining the number of crates required, as well as loading and unloading methods that guarantee equipment integrity throughout the relocation.

Shipping and Coordination: Custom crating services at Armstrong extend beyond fabrication. Once your equipment is meticulously crated and packaged, we take charge of shipping and coordination.
