Moving Services

Typical Move Request Process
  1. Initiate your property transfer, relocation or surplus request with your departmental contacts.  Be sure to indicate if your request will require assistance from Facilities Management.
  2. Once the move is approved by Property Services and assistance from Facilities is requested, a work order is then created and sent to Facilities Service Support.
  3. Facilities Service Support will then contact and coordinate the move directly with the customer.
