Medical Equipment Courier
Last week we were contacted by a healthcare company. They needed an equipment trolley transporting from Charing Cross Hospital, (Fulham Palace Rd, Hammersmith, London W6 8RF) to St. Thomas’ Hospital, (Westminster Bridge Rd, Lambeth, London SE1 7EH). The trolley itself was only 1.5 meters tall and weighed around 40kg, a straightforward delivery for our Same Day Courier team. Our only concern was although our courier vans are regularly cleaned inside and out, (and we have some lovely brand new ones), they are by no means sterile. Our despatch team raised this concern with our client prior to booking the deliver in, but they confirmed this would not be an issue. The team in the office confirmed both the driver’s name and the van registration number to our client so they could pass on to the hospitals’ security departments if required. Once the delivery had been booked our client arranged for our same day courier driver to collect and deliver the trolley from/to the loading bay of each respective hospital. On collection, our driver ensured the trolley was protected in transit with a blanket and securely strapped before the half hour drive (and a bit, allowing for London traffic along the Thames), to St. Thomas’ Hospital.
Medical Equipment Courier – we’re London based!
The journey between the hospitals only took a little over half an hour for one of our shiny new same day courier vans. The collection point, (Charing Cross Hospital) is only 7miles from our London depot, (Wimbledon SW19), a journey taking just over half an hour. Once the equipment trolley had been delivered our despatch team then sent an email confirmation to our client.
