Using a specialist equipment handling company can provide several advantages, including:
Expertise and Experience
Specialist equipment handling companies have dedicated teams with extensive knowledge and experience in handling specific types of equipment. They understand the unique requirements and intricacies involved in transporting and installing specialised equipment. Their expertise ensures that the equipment is handled safely and efficiently, minimising the risk of damage or operational disruptions.
These companies offer tailored solutions based on the specific needs of the equipment being handled. They take into account factors such as the size, weight, fragility, and transportation requirements of the equipment to develop a customised plan. With their expertise, they can provide specialised packaging, rigging, and transportation techniques to ensure the equipment's safe and secure relocation. Customised solutions minimise the potential for accidents, delays, or damage during transit.
Cost and Time Efficiency
Engaging a specialist equipment handling company can result in cost and time savings. These companies have the necessary infrastructure, equipment, and resources to efficiently handle equipment-related tasks. They have established networks, access to specialised tools, and a deep understanding of logistics, which allows them to streamline processes and minimise downtime.
Relay - your specialist equipment handling company
Relay specialises in the transportation and installation of highly valuable and invariably fragile electronic equipment. Our nationwide network of depots are also responsible for the safe storage of these precious customer assets.
We are entrusted with MFPs, lab fridges, AV equipment, vending machines and many other vulnerable items for ongoing installation at end user premises. So we are well aware that each stage in the supply chain must operate to perfection. Equal care and attention in specialist equipment handling needs to be applied in the warehouse as it is to goods in transit.
Our depots at Iver, Warrington, and Coatbridge, Lanarkshire, together provide over 100,000 square feet of hi-tech warehousing. They also act as logistics hubs, ensuring the continual effective management of supply chains for both our domestic and overseas operations.
Warehousing staff at all our depots are highly skilled in every aspect of specialist equipment handling. They are also exceptionally experienced in the specific vulnerabilities of each and every item in the wide range of sophisticated electronic equipment that passes through our hands.
Their expertise is supported by extensive warehouse technical and management resources. These include climate controlled racked storage facilities available at all our depots, ensuring that equipment is safely stored without damage and maintained in optimum condition so that it functions to peak levels of performance at its final destination.
Specialist equipment handling is a 24/7 operation at Relay’s depots. We leave no stone unturned in making sure that our customers’ assets are subject to the highest standards of care and in conditions of maximum security. We are continually conscious of the value of the items in our warehousing facilities and their often vital importance to the end user.
