White Glove Delivery - Available -

What is White Glove service?

Standard common carrier delivery options cover the cost of getting an item to your shipping address but our White Glove delivery service does that and more!

The White Glove agent will call to schedule a Call Before Delivery within a four hour window, which gives you the flexibility to work around your busy schedule and to prepare the space where your item will be placed. Upon delivery, trained professionals will unload your large item from the truck, bring it into the room of choice, unpack the item and remove all packaging debris from the premises.

Please note that White Glove delivery will typically add 5 - 7 business days to your order's transit, and only includes 30 minutes of on-site time. If on-site time beyond 30 minutes is required, you may be responsible for additional fees. While the agents will bring the items into the location of your choice, this service does not include set-up of the items being delivered, such as installation of casters, shelves, or other accessories. Small items will not be unpackaged individually; they will be set in place and debris and packaging material will not be removed.

You May Also Need

"You May Also Need" items are guaranteed to work with the item you are viewing, such as lids that will fit a cup or casters that will fit a piece of equipment. If an item is not listed in this section, we do not guarantee that it will work with the product you are viewing and do not recommend that you purchase them for use together.

Rubbermaid FGST40EWPLRD Details

This Rubbermaid FGST40EW The Defenders steel red medical step can with wheels and rigid plastic liner is the ultimate waste disposal choice for your hospital, doctor's office, or other medical institution. This unit complies with OSHA standards on blood borne pathogens for the safe containment of infectious waste, ensuring the most sterile and safe environment possible. Wheels on the bottom of the container also allow for effortless transport and added convenience.

Featuring a foot pedal, this unit enables hands free operation, so doctors, nurses or other employees don't need to touch the actual can itself when disposing waste, optimizing sanitation efforts in your facility. For more safety and sanitation precautions, its self-closing piano hinge lid utilizes a restraining mechanism to prevent lid from traveling backwards, preventing any contamination or damage to walls or other equipment in the area, and so users don't ever need to touch the lid itself to close the container.

Made of fire-safe, heavy-gauge galvanized steel, this unit is built to last and has a sterile, clean appearance and feel. Steel legs with non-slip buttons also support the container and ensure your floors aren't scratched, smudged, or damaged. Complete with a rigid plastic liner for your convenience, this unit prevents any unwanted leaks. Its square shape also allows this unit to be easily placed in the corner of the room for space-efficiency.
