Freight Microscope Packaging Process
At our company we take packing and shipping very seriously. No one wants to spend thousands of dollars and receive a damaged instrument.
Our process involves evaluating every microscope and its components to determine the safest positioning and structure for packing. Most of our microscopes will ship in an ISPM-15 wood crate made from ½” plywood and 1x4 framing. (Crates are Internationally Compliant).
During microscope packing we often disconnect any protruding components like lamp housings, sliders, eyepieces, light guides. We provide easy reassembly instructions to reinstall such components.
Components and accessories not installed on the microscope are bubble wrapped and packed in individual boxes. Any remaining space inside the crates is filled with bubble wrap to prevent any movement and provide for additional cushion.
All of our crates ship with carrier instructions “ Do Not Stack “ and include visual customer reminders to inspect the shipment on arrival. Crates are also marked with instructions to retain packaging material until the instrument is inspected/verified and warranty period passed.
Parcel Microscope Packaging Process
Same as with freight shipments we take packing and shipping very seriously. No one wants to spend thousands of dollars and receive a damaged instrument.
Our process includes evaluating every microscope and its components to determine the best shipment and packing method.
Microscopes that are small enough to ship via parcel (UPS/FEDEX) are often taken apart with all components safely wrapped with bubble wrap. Safety of shipment is a number one priority so we may often pack microscopes into multiple boxes to assure safe delivery.
Boxes have a foam bottom liner and are filled with bubble wrap to prevent any movement of content inside during transit to your location.
