warehouse-02

1st Class are a major supplier of courier transport services to medical service companies.

From urgent blood samples to medication and medical instruments, 1st Class have staff and vehicles equipped to cope with transporting these delicate consignments across the UK & Ireland. Depending on the size of the medical instrument, we can offer vehicles from small vans to 18 ton lorries for this.

Our vehicles are specially adapted to care for these instruments, with additional strapping points, extended tail-lifts and various packing and padding materials.

1st Class drivers are extremely experienced in handling these specialist items. We work closely together with our customers to ensure all deliveries are carried out to the highest quality at all times.

 

Why choose 1st Class?

If you run a medical supplies business, you need couriers that can handle your products properly.

It’s vital that medical equipment and supplies are moved as quickly and securely as possible. Whether it’s down the road to the local clinic or up the country to a major teaching hospital, medical businesses need reliable couriers.

 

Essential Courier Services

We all know how crucial it is that medical supplies and equipment are transported quickly and carefully. Couriers could make the difference between life and death, particularly if they are carrying blood supplies or urgently-needed machinery. Most medical equipment is delicate and the slightest damage could impair the way it works, which is why hospitals, laboratories and medical supply companies choose only the best couriers to handle deliveries like these:

  • Medical Equipment – whether it’s a machine that’s coming straight from the manufacturer’s production line to a hospital ward, or a piece of test equipment that’s being moved between laboratories, 1st Class provide couriers who are competent at loading, transporting and unloading medical equipment without anything going wrong. That’s why medical companies choose our couriers complemented by our our range of vehicles, professional strapping and packing materials. We also offer the knowledge and willingness to unpack at the other end to ensure everything is exactly as it should be.
  • Medical Supplies – not all clinics or labs have the right testing or prescription facilities to hand. In some cases, requesting medicine by courier or asking couriers to take blood samples to the nearest laboratory can help to speed up diagnosis and treatment. Couriers need to be able to collect and deliver quickly – and at any time of the day or night if they want to be used by the medical industry on a regular basis. 1st Class offer a 24 hour service as standard so our clients can rest assured we are always on hand to move their urgent consignments.

If you’re looking for someone to handle your medical equipment or supply delivery, 1st Class have the specialist knowledge and experience to help you maintain your reputation with your customers. After all, if your couriers let you down, you could lose the client’s business and your reputation may suffer. We take great pride in working closely with you to ensure that all your medical delivery requirements are met and to ensure our service levels are of the highest standard.

 

Technical Courier Services

Through working closely with our clients, we have staff specially trained in Technical Courier applications.

These range from installing and swapping out replacement computer and IT parts, to installing blood glucose meters in hospitals throughout the UK and Ireland.

Our clients also utilise 1st Class Logistics staff to carry out “low end” technical tasks, freeing up their own engineers and resources often resulting in significant cost savings.  Training can be carried out by outside organisations or by the client.

These services can be provided on a local level, or expanded nationwide cost effectively through our overnight network.

Other services we offer in addition to regular deliveries include on-site de-crating & unpacking of instruments and assistance with basic setting up. Specialist equipment & forklifts can be provided on site for de-crating of heavy items if required. We will also remove and dispose of all packaging.

We work closely together with our clients to ensure all deliveries are carried out to the highest quality at all times.

If you would like to receive information on customers we currently offer these specific services to, or to discuss your own requirements in more detail, please contact us at any time on 01256 409037 or info@1stclasslogistics.co.uk to arrange same day collection.
