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.

Department Funded 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 $161.10 per hour or 2 men with one truck is $120.60 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.

Mandated Project Moves                                                                                                                                                                 Mandated moves area initiated by Facilities Planning. Logistial Services has a list of these moves. These types of moves are charged to the University.

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 surplused. If you're relocating your copier you should contact your service provider. Movers will not move personal property or trash.

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.

Moving Checklist                                                                                                                                                                            An office move can be stressful. In addition to sufficient time to plan the move, checklists are one of the best sanity savers. Use our comprehensive moving checklist to ensure all major and minor details are covered. The checklist is broken down into stages and can be customized to match your type of move. The more effort put into planning the smoother everything else will go. The bigger the move, the sooner planning should begin. Logistical Services handles all moves, big and small. We move offices, labs, specialized equipment and we can provide storage if needed. We are here to help you along the way! For large moves, hold at least one all staff meeting. Office moves are also an opportunity to purge files and dispose of surplus equipment. Facilities Services will dispose of trash. Moving can be hard work, but we’ll make it easier.

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.
