Preparing for a Successful Move

  • Get a reputable laboratory relocation firm involved as early as possible.

• Offers actual insurance not valuation coverage.

• Can facilitate the move using their own employees.

• Has experience handling laboratory equipment and working in laboratory environments.

• Uses generated trucks that can accommodate 110v, 208v, 220v and 240v units with multiple outlet configurations for transporting refrigerated and frozen content.

  • Contact your Institution’s Office of Environmental Health & Safety (EHS) to make them aware that your lab is moving.
  • Reach out to your new laboratory facilities contact to have them provide you with the layout of your new space.
  • Contact vendors for any equipment still under warranty for recommendations and to ensure that having a third party move will not void any existing coverage.
  • Start purging and packing non-essential items immediately .
  • Do not pack equipment into plastic totes – causes static charges to table mounted equipment.
