How Far is the Mobile MRI away?
When preparing to find a mobile mri to lease during your MRI project. You have probably reached out and found 1 or 2 mobile companies. Hopefully one of those is Kings Medical Group. One of the “big” costs that go into leasing a mobile is your one-time transportation fee. This cost is based on the distance traveled from its current location to your facility. Generally, the mobile is coming from a storage lot but it can come from a previous customer. The further away the higher the cost.

During the lease, whether you have OEM or Third Party service, a field service engineer will be designated during entirety of your lease. The engineer is usually onsite during the delivery to become familiar with the site and help set up the unit. Engineers are usually within 4 hours of the location to help minimize downtime and to be onsite for any major issues.

In some cases, you may need a quick turn around for emergency situations. This could be for a down system, backlog build up or even COVID-19.
