This guide has been prepared to make packing and moving easier for Yale departments, reducing unnecessary delays and cutting costs. Please ﬁll out a Request For Service form as soon as the move is anticipated. TR&S will do their best to meet preferred dates but cannot always guarantee dates without early notification (two weeks advance notice is required to accommodate specific move dates). The following information paves the way for a smooth and eﬃcient transfer to your new location
All packing should be completed prior to the day of the actual move.
Only personnel directly involved with the move should be present during the course of the move.
Do Not Move
If items are not to be moved or if equipment and furniture are to be discarded, be sure to label them with “Do Not Move”.
Special Types of Furniture
Items such as “L” desks and conference tables usually need to be dismantled. Thus, be certain that all sections of the pieces of furniture dismantled have the same label color and code information. All seat cushions of a sofa or couch should be individually labeled as well as the sofa itself. A representative from TR&S can assist you as to which items may need to be dismantled for the move.
University surplus will be picked up at no charge to the donor, but all items must be labeled “SURPLUS”. A representative from TR&S can inform you as to what would be acceptable as surplus.
