High value equipment does not just relate to how much it costs, but is also to do with how much value any given item will give to the end user receiving the delivery. This type of equipment can ensure that day to day business operations run smoothly, and therefore should be handled with care and precision during every stage of its journey.
The process of transporting high value equipment can include many different stages, including:
Technical equipment collections can be the starting point of any transportation process, and will need to ensure the safe handling of goods. This can involve the use of specialist equipment and vehicles containing on-board equipment such as straps, foams and corner pieces.
Delivering secure, safe and controlled hi-tech warehousing is an integral part of any transportation project whereby a delivery is not needed right away. Extensive technical warehousing and specialist equipment storage facilities can ensure that high value equipment is being kept in a secure location before it gets delivered. These facilities will also use the correct equipment to offload and move high value goods.
Having the ability to handle and deliver high value equipment in a time critical manner will allow the end user to focus on their operations, rather than worrying if a major delivery will arrive or not. Delivery routes should be planned well in advance so that any traffic delays can easily be avoided.
The range of high value and fragile equipment requiring installation can be incredibly wide and varied and requires specialist knowledge and handling skills in order to eliminate the possibilities of damage. The work required when installing equipment can include:
- Plug-in, Power-up and Green Button Test
- Installation of peripherals
- Driver download
- Customer demonstration
