What to Expect When Relocating a Laboratory

When relocating a laboratory, what to expect can vary depending on the type of relocation, or move, you have planned. For instance, if you are relocating to a new or different location, you do not have to be concerned for your equipment because it can be transferred with safety measures when using a specialist removal service. When it comes to fragile items such as glass wares, thermometers, and chemistry analysers, the items will be packed in plastics, which are more resistant to damage.

The next question that you have to ask yourself when it comes to what to expect when moving a laboratory is about the location you are moving to. Most laboratories happen to have a lot of equipment and it’s important that the new location is an adequate size and has easy access for the equipment.

Before you move your equipment into the new location, check whether everything is in good shape. If there is any damage, it would be better to replace them with new ones rather than risk taking faulty equipment. Any damage should be noted before removal, so liability is not placed on the movers.

The final question that you have to ask yourself is about all relevant documentation. These are usually the last things that go into the new location, so you will want to make sure that they are complete and kept secure. Since you will be moving all your essential laboratory documents, you may want to ask a few colleagues, who have previously moved, for advice on what you should take with you. Some of the documents to take with you include medical insurance, lab equipment licenses, and other documentation contracts, and leases.
