Technical collection of fragile equipment

Technical collection of fragile equipment

The technical collection of fragile equipment involves rigorous procedures to ensure that every item is accounted for. It is of vital importance that all assets are not only loaded carefully and securely onto delivery vehicles, but are also accurately checked against customer instructions. Only after these processes have been completed can a successful collection take place.

Technical equipment collections should be undertaken by transportation specialists with the ability and resources to handle a wide range of valuable equipment with the care and precision which such tasks necessitate. Companies that regularly deal with the technical collection of goods will have the right equipment for each job and the vehicles to meet the specific demands of any given project.

Collection planning

Detailed planning should be carried out and in close consultation with the customer, requiring agreed and effective channels of communication. This way the customer will be accurately informed about the status of the collection and delivery schedule at any given time. Additionally, the transportation company can be made aware of information such as:

  • Any events in and around the area on the day of collection. This would mean extra time could be added onto a journey or a quicker route could be devised.
  • Any special parking requirements that are in place.
  • The layout of a building where the equipment collected is to be installed.
