Shipping Medical Equipment

Shipping medical equipment requires a service provider that offers speed, quality, and reliability. Transporting life-saving medical equipment as quickly as possible to those who need it during critical times should be the main focus of any carrier that you hire. That said, the carrier should also be able to balance speed with quality service. Furthermore, they should be able to comply with all mandatory regulations with regard to the pickup and delivery of your items. 

Ship Medical Equipment With uShip

Locating a medical equipment transport company that provides speed, quality, and reliability is easy with uShip. uShip is an online marketplace that connects shippers to carriers and transport service providers. Service providers on uShip are able to handle medical items with the utmost care including high-value medical equipment, bulk supplies, and medical devices. 

Furthermore, uShip service providers are able to transport equipment quickly to and from a variety of medical care facilities such as hospitals, urgent care clinics, emergency rooms, surgical centers, nursing homes, and more. To get started you will need to decide which method of transport to use: less than truckload (LTL) or a private provider.

Medical Equipment Transport Service Types

Less than truckload shipping requires shipping medical equipment on a pallet or in a crate. This option is best for bulk shipments and is extremely cost-effective. For custom services, it’s best to hire a private carrier through our marketplace. 

To hire a private carrier on the uShip marketplace you will need to create a listing. Once you receive quotes you will need to review and choose the carrier that best fits your requirements. To learn more about our private carrier marketplace, see our guide on how it all works

For LTL shipments, you will need to use our instant rate calculator. Simply complete the form, get quotes, and book. The carrier will pick up your freight and deliver it within your specified timeframe. To learn more about LTL shipping, see our guide on less than truckload shipping.
