Moving Services

Moving Services is available to the campus. The type of move will determine who pays for it. There are three basic types of moves, Department Funded, Mandated Project and Surplus. To request a move or pickup of surplus property go to our Moving Services website to submit your request. If you are not yet a user you will need to complete the registration process. You can contact Doug Addison at 619-594-0288 if you need assistance using the website.

Disposal of IT Resources
The SDSU IT Security Office policies state that IT support staff are responsible for ensuring that all information, operating systems and other software (including all media) have been both sanitized (wiped) and physically removed from equipment before being sent to surplus.

Recommendations for the correct disposal of computer hard drives can be found in section 3.9.8 of the Information Security Plan. For more information, see Disposal of IT Resources.

Mandated Moves
A mandated move is a move initiated by Facilities Planning. Business Services has a list of these moves. These types of moves are charged to the University.

Department Moves
Department moves are moves requested by each department. An example would be a department requesting movers to reorganize a particular area. This type of move is charged to the department. The current charge for 3 men with one truck is $115.20 per hour or 2 men with one truck is $87.60 per hour with a minimum of 4 hours if no other moves are scheduled that day. With advanced notice, Material Management can combine moves, thereby lowering the minimum time requirement to a half hour.

Surplus Moves
At the discretion of Material Management, there is no charge for the pickup of surplus property that is turned in for disposal. Material Management will only pick up copiers that are being returned to Surplus. If you're relocating your copier you should contact your service provider. Movers will not move personal property.

Scheduling Moves
Material Management can generally respond to all moves within three days of receiving the request. Notice in advance is always an advantage. For large moves call Material Management so that we may assist you in planning your move.
