University Moving Expense Reimbursement Policy, Procedure, and Discount Options

As a faculty or staff member of Purdue University, you are eligible to take advantage of discount options available through prefered vendors. New employees may choose whichever company they prefer for their move, but we request that new staff use these vendors whenever possible. It is hoped that these agreements will allow new employees to begin their careers at Purdue University with as few moving problems as possible. To take advantage of these discount options, you will need to follow the steps outlined below when the University will be covering part or all your expenses. The heaviest moving months are May, June, July, and August. Please contact Purdue University as soon as possible to make arrangements with a moving company.

Please follow the steps below:

  1. You will need to notify in the Mathematics Business Office if you wish to be contacted by one of these firms.
  2. The Department Business Office will contact the University Purchasing Department with your name, address, phone number, and the company you wish to use. In addition, a copy of the funding approval memo will be provided to Purchasing.
  3. The Purchasing Department will contact the moving company and relay the necessary information.
  4. The moving company will then make the arrangements directly with you.
