Aport works with universities, offering specialist relocation services from one institution to another.

When academic staff transfer to another university, it can be a complex process to relocate equipment and live research, whether it is a permanent move or a temporary secondment. Our expert laboratory relocation team will handle the entire process with the utmost care and attention to detail.

Aport can handle every element of your university relocation from carefully packing all your items to making sure everything is set up correctly, to the required regulatory standards, at destination. As well as relocations within the UK, we also specialise in international moves and can help with customs clearance to locations all over the world. We can also assist with relocations within the same university to different buildings or campuses.

We will carefully move all data, instrumentation and equipment as well as assets, samples, chemicals, glassware and consumables.  Aport is also expert in moving temperature controlled materials at ambient (15-25 degrees C), fridge (2-8 degrees C) and frozen (-20/-80 degrees C) temperatures as well as liquid nitrogen.

At Aport, we understand just how valuable your research is so we will work with you to ensure any potential challenges are addressed before they arise and to minimise any disruption to projects.

All sensitive and confidential data will be kept completely secure at all stages of the relocation process and we will keep a full chain of custody log. Our vehicles are security sealed and fitted with tracking devices so you will always know where your items are and we can provide you with a detailed record for auditing purposes.

Aport is the only laboratory removals firm in the UK and Europe which provides services which meet GxP compliance standards, including Good Laboratory Practise (GLP), Good Manufacturing Practise (GMP) and Good Distribution Practise (GDP).
