American Moving & Installation Inc. Services Laboratory Facility Relocations in Massachusetts

Moving companies provide solutions to complex and specialized moving needs. A strong understanding of the industry’s operations is necessary to service a laboratory facility’s relocation. American Moving & Installation Inc. provides necessary state-of-the-art equipment and well-trained union movers for every company relocation.

Large, bulky, and highly-valued machinery may be involved in the daily operations of a laboratory facility. Since these companies and facilities are mainly researching, manufacturing, packaging, and handling medication, products, or specimens, there is a need to recognize sensitivity within relocating a lab.

Common types of healthcare and laboratory equipment in a facility relocation include:

  • Cold storage transport, such as freezers and refrigerators
  • Autoclaves, centrifuges, other sensitive equipment
  • Granulating, mixing, and milling machinery
  • Aseptic and sanitation equipment
  • Printers and packaging equipment
  • Hazardous and non-hazardous material

The laboratory industry has many detail-oriented operations with a high degree of quality. Likewise, planning a facility’s relocation requires specialty services that many general moving companies don’t offer or provide. Our one-stop-shop commercial union moving company has completed and managed many healthcare, laboratory, and pharmaceutical moves within Massachusetts. Our reliable team of movers is eager to provide reliable and trustworthy service that has retained our client base.

Essential Aspects of a Boston and Cambridge Laboratory Move

Depending on the size of a facility, quantity of equipment and product, and other factors involved in planning and executing a relocation, a moving plan can appear differently. At times, storage, warehousing, and other moving industry solutions become a part of the relocation process. With many successful company relocations under our belt, our move management team and union movers can help you plan, organize, and stay on track throughout a move.

However, the general aspects making every relocation successful are:

  • Communication
  • Budgeting
  • Taking inventory
  • Setting a timeline
  • Evaluating the scope of work

Whether traveling a short or long distance to a new location, ensuring the safety and security of the equipment is essential. Specialty moving services have specific training when it comes to handling heavy, large, and costly items that general movers may not have the experience or resources to complete a relocation.

Additionally, packing and unpacking are not the only aspects to consider when planning a move. For laboratories, you may warrant reconfiguration and IT setup at the new location to help the transition and employee productivity. Without the necessary help of specialized movers, you may forgo the safety of your laboratory facility’s belongings and the ease of our valuable support.

What to Do Before Relocating a Laboratory or Healthcare Facility

Moving a laboratory and its equipment can take months of planning and preparation. However, the timeline of a laboratory relocation differs based on the company’s size. The scope of work also helps evaluate the small and large steps needed for the transition. You may be looking to downsize, grow, or expand in a new location. Whether to downsize or reach for a growth opportunity, you can take steps to start a laboratory relocation plan properly.

Here’s what to do before relocating a laboratory or healthcare facility:

  • Determine a new location and set a moving day
  • Take an inventory of all your equipment and supplies
  • Communicate any special instructions or considerations for laboratory equipment and supplies to your specialized laboratory movers
  • Set a relocation plan in place while considering the needs for the old and new location
  • Appoint or assign roles to your staff and team members
  • Communicate the move to your employees and business partners
  • Discard any unused equipment, garbage, and other disposable items

Planning and preparing for a laboratory move requires many actionable steps. Understandably, relocating a facility doesn’t happen overnight. With the help of professional movers specialized in biotech, healthcare, and laboratory facility relocations, you may rest assured that all aspects of your move are considered. At our commercial union moving company, a project manager assigned to your company relocation project works to ensure you are informed throughout the entire moving process.
