A Guide to Picking the Right Courier Lockbox

Friday May 21st, 2021

Buying the right kind of laboratory equipment is critical to maintaining your high standards. Likewise, a courier lockbox is a critical link in the chain of custody for laboratory specimens. For over 40 years, McShane has been one of the nation's largest suppliers of laboratory courier lockboxes. We understand the unique challenges of the industry and are constantly evolving our courier lockboxes to meet the changing needs of top labs. Handling specimens properly is integral to a productive and efficient laboratory. In that regard, consider the following factors when purchasing the right lockbox for laboratory pickup by your couriers.


The Unprecedented Steel Demand

Monday Feb 22nd, 2021

In the past year, we have seen an unprecedented demand for steel that has pushed steel prices to a record high; surpassing the 2008 record. Steel costs vary by type of steel and availability. However, raw material prices can be an indicator of future steel costs. Like all manufacturers, McShane has been severely impacted by a spike in our material costs. Steel has increased by more than 30% already and the trend is likely to continue for much of 2021. Unfortunately, we are unable to absorb material cost increases this high. For that reason, McShane must increase our pricing. This is in addition to the 8% price increase launched January 4, 2021.


Home Delivery Safety Checklist

Thursday Feb 18th, 2021

According to C+R Research, 25 million dollars worth of packages/services are stolen daily. Package theft has become a significant problem for online shoppers. For many, the convenience of online is being ruined by the harsh reality of so-called porch pirates. In addition to the costs and inconvenience, it can be unsettling to know a stranger has violated your residence. With the average online order being above $100+, we have put together a checklist to follow when receiving packages on your porch.

My company has been using lockboxes from McShane Welding for over 6 years now and is very pleased with the product and customer service. The personnel are all friendly and go above and beyond. The boxes are great quality and our clients love them. We couldn’t be more pleased with our working relationship with McShane.

Our courier company strongly encourages the use of LabLockers. We have been a customer for over 10 years and no other metal box vendor we tried in the past compares to the quality and customer service we get at McShane. Any business in the courier industry, specifically medical samples, should consider LabLockers.

Our laboratory has been very satisfied with our choice to purchase the ESC-10 for specimen collection and transportation. This product allows us to control the temperature of the sample by offering frozen and ambient storage solutions. McShane Metal Products have always delivered their products on time while consistently offering fair pricing.
