How We Ship Medical Exam Tables March 12 2015
We at MonsterMed.com are experts in shipping and delivery of all types of Medical Exam Tables. Many medical practices don’t know that they are able to purchase large medical tables such as the Ritter 204 Exam Table or 630 HumanForm Procedure Table, online. But these types of tables are easily shipped across the U.S. Plus, when you buy a table online, you are able to view all possible options and accessories that are available, such as table top upholstery colors and styles. And though coordinating the delivery for a 300+ pound piece of equipment seems difficult, its not for us pros!
We would like to take a moment to explain the shipping procedure of a large item like a medical table.
-Information needed for a shipping quote
There are many factors that come into play when obtaining a delivery quote. Being table shipping pros, we are able to answer most trucking questions without needing to bother you. In most cases, all we need from you to obtain a quote is your zip code, quantity of tables and the type of delivery you prefer. A request from a customer can look as simple as this: “I need a white glove rate for a 204 exam table to zip code 17403”. Simplicity made simple! Our specialists will then contact numerous trucking agencies to obtain the best rate.
Truck deliveries are not as clear-cut as UPS or FedEx deliveries. Each service carries additional fees. The most inexpensive and basic truck delivery is Dock to Dock. Dock to Dock includes a simply delivery to a dock at your facility and is only an option if your facility has a dock for the truck to back up to. If the delivery location does not have a Loading/Unloading Dock, you would have to use the next option Liftgate Delivery. Also called Curbside Delivery, Liftgate Delivery costs more that Dock Delivery because a trailer with a Liftgate is needed for bringing the shipment to the ground. All that is included with this option is bringing the shipment to the ground for the customer.
Any additional handling of merchandise by the delivery company will increase the delivery cost. Inside Delivery can be misleading at times for customers. While the name implies that the table will be brought inside, the accessibility will determine how far it will be taken. The delivery company will only bring the shipment as far as the pallet will allow. If the pallet is too large to fit through the door of the facility, it will not be brought inside. This is where a majority of problems occur with this type of service. If you question whether this will be an issue for your delivery, contact us for the size of the pallet and measure your entrance way to determine if there will be an issue.
-White Glove Delivery
The most popular and delivery option is White Glove which takes the work out of the customer hands and puts it into ours. With White Glove Service, you will receive a phone call prior to delivery to schedule a delivery date and time. On that date, our agents will show up with an assembled, unpacked exam table, ready for installation. They will then bring the table to the room of your choice and remove all shipping debris. The only thing you have to do is have the space for the table clear. This is the most popular option for delivery of an exam table.
Being we deliver so many tables, we have built a nationwide delivery network at the most competitive prices available, and we pass those savings onto you, our beloved customer. Give us a call today and upgrade that old exam table. You will be happy you did!
