Relocating equipment within clean environments is a specialised service which Johnsons are highly qualified to provide. We have gained a sophisticated knowledge of both the protective packing that is needed, and the delicate methodology for handling and transporting this type of equipment in a cost-effective way.
So whether you’re moving your laboratory or healthcare facility down the hall or around the world, we offer a complete range of laboratory relocation services for regulated and non-regulated sites. We provide all of the planning, moving, and post-move services to make your move as smooth and stress-free as possible.
Moving laboratories is a demanding operation at the best of times. Even modern laboratories can pose serious access problems, and some older premises can be extremely difficult to get around. Older lifts are often not big enough, and doorways and corridors are too cramped for moving big apparatus. Our laboratory move management team takes these problems in their stride by using a variety of stair climbers, lifting gear and tools, and have the expertise to solve all of these types of problems associated with specialist laboratory removals.
There is much more to specialist laboratory relocations or moving a healthcare facility than the physical move itself. Johnsons provide a suite of services to help you get ready for the moving day. We’ll create an equipment database including existing assets and items on order, carry out a site assessment and look into any special transportation documentation requirements. After this, we’ll come up with a realistic moving schedule and agree this with you.
We make it all as stress-free as possible. So, from pre-shipment preparation to the safe transportation of instruments, we take care of everything. We prepare lab equipment before dismantling, including instrument decontamination, purging and parking of moveable mechanical parts. We ensure the proper handling of all Hazmat wastes, chemicals, lab samples and so on, and then handle all packing of lab ware, accessories, and laboratory equipment spare parts before the move.
Once you’re in your new location, our laboratory relocation management team will unpack, re-assemble, and re-install each system, duplicating your layout at the former location. We’ll unpack, install and test each piece of equipment, carry out any calibration if required, and arrange IQ OQ PQ qualification, validation and documentation, as needed.
We have a wide range of experience in this sector to include specialist laboratory life science moves, chemical relocations, cold chain removals, scientific equipment moves, active debris moves, and dangerous goods removals. Some example of which are below.
The team at Wold Academy are very happy with the result. I would like to extend my personal thanks for all the hard work and effort put in to get this project over the line.
Johnsons moved Seaford and Newhaven Libraries for us over 2014-15. Both jobs went successfully due to the hard work and efficiency of the very friendly and helpful Johnsons Staff.
The moving process has been very efficient. The teams supplied were punctual, organised and couldn't do enough to help. This has made the whole experience of moving better for staff and students alike.
I was incredibly impressed with their ability to cope with a demanding and labour intense situation and will now only consider using Johnsons for any future work of this type.
Johnsons Business Moves have been appointed by this Trust as our preferred office relocation company for the past 10 years.
I would like to thank the team. Not only were they prompt in arrival, they also completed the job to a high standard and were extremely professional throughout.
