  2. Please have exact measurements of the pieces you are ordering to be sure that they will fit through doorways and onto elevators.
  3. All equipment should be delivered directly to the office/laboratory in which it will be used/installed. (The area available for off loading on the receiving dock is too small to allow storage of large crates and the interior hallways must be kept clear by order of the Boston Fire Department.) There will be a charge to the department for these services.
