They may need to assess the job prior to beginning your office or laboratory move. Therefore, please provide as much information as possible when requesting an office move. Information required is:
  • Type of equipment / furniture
  • Number of items

The occupant will be responsible for packing all lose items including desk, bookcase, and filing cabinet contents. All items must be packed and department/staff must be prepared to move by the start of the scheduled move day. All breakable and spillable items must be taped and marked Fragile.

Boxes should ideally be no larger than two feet by two feet to allow transport. Building Services will try to assist with the provision of boxes however, departments are responsible for procuring their own.
