How do you pack? Have you previously packed and shipped a Zeiss Observer 7 Fluorescence Microscope? Do you ship Internationally?

Packing

  • Smaller microscopes ship via UPS Parcel Delivery with adequate packing material and a strong box. Or, when combined with other orders, it may be packed in a crate.
  • Most larger microscopes ship in fully enclosed ISPM15-certified wooden crates with proper padding underneath, and the sides have moving components braced.
  • Accessories are packed safely in boxes with padding and then safely packed inside the crate.
  • We may not use a crate for local deliveries to save you money *if delivered by us.
  • We often use “tilt’ & “shock” indicators on the crates to ensure the crate has not been excessively tilted and dropped where equipment may suffer damage.
  • Photos are taken during the packing process to make sure nothing is missed.

 

USA/Canada Shipping

  • Within the US and Canada, we will ship via selected freight carriers. We do not use low-price/high-damage carriers as we want the equipment to get safely to you.

 

International Shipping

  • Internationally, we will only ship via Air Freight or Air Parcel (such as UPS or DHL), which provides reliability, no exposure to Ocean weather, and timely delivery.
    We have extensive experience packing and shipping fragile microscopes globally.

 

Our experience and process

  • We have safely packed and shipped thousands of sensitive analytical instruments.

 

How much will I save buying it pre-owned, and is it worth it?

A lot…and it is undoubtedly worth it, and here is why. Feel free to ask for feedback from hundreds of customers who bought from us.

 

  • When compared to buying a new one, you will save up to 60% to 80% and have plenty of funds left over for an additional instrument or two.
  • You will get our standard warranty, plus, when available, an option to obtain an extended warranty agreement.
  • Know that your microscope was tested and working the day it left our facility and is covered if there are faults.
Sustainability
  • Well, this one is easy: buying a pre-owned microscope is great for the planet; you are reducing unnecessary waste, CO2 output, and water use that would be used during the manufacturing process.

 

I have more questions; I want to receive a formal quote.

Absolutely! Please give us a call (1-617-397-3486) or complete this form to get your questions answered or receive a formal Quote.

Freight Microscope Packaging Process

At our company we take packing and shipping very seriously.
No one wants to spend thousands of dollars and receive a damaged instrument.

Our process involves evaluating every microscope and its components to determine the safest positioning and structure for packing.
Most of our microscopes will ship in an ISPM-15 wood crate made from ½” plywood and 1x4 framing. (Crates are Internationally Compliant).

During microscope packing we often disconnect any protruding components like lamp housings, sliders, eyepieces, light guides.
We provide easy reassembly instructions to reinstall such components.

Components and accessories not installed on the microscope are bubble wrapped and packed in individual boxes.
Any remaining space inside the crates is filled with bubble wrap to prevent any movement and provide for additional cushion.

All of our crates ship with carrier instructions “Do Not Stack“ and include visual customer reminders to inspect the shipment on arrival.
Crates are also marked with instructions to retain packaging material until the instrument is inspected/verified and warranty period passed.

 







 

Parcel Microscope Packaging Process

Same as with freight shipments we take packing and shipping very seriously.
No one wants to spend thousands of dollars and receive a damaged instrument.

Our process includes evaluating every microscope and its components to determine the best shipment and packing method.

Microscopes that are small enough to ship via parcel (UPS/FEDEX) are often taken apart with all components safely wrapped with bubble wrap.
Safety of shipment is a number one priority so we may often pack microscopes into multiple boxes to assure safe delivery.

Boxes have a foam bottom liner and are filled with bubble wrap to prevent any movement of content inside during transit to your location.
