Wayne State University

Move Management

The University currently has a preferred-vendor relationship for moving services.  The move vendor provides superior customer service through extensive logistical support in relocation services to the University community.

University employees who need an item moved and require assistance from FP&M (Facilities Planning and Management) D&CS (Design and Construction Services) must put in a work order.

The link can be found at: http://workorder.facilities.wayne.edu/request_bldg_ff.html. A request can be submitted in two categories:

  • Just-Do-It (JDI) Request – This is the fastest project delivery method. The work will be scheduled and an estimate is not required. Customer must provide an index for direct billing purposes.
  • Estimate Request – A cost estimate is required prior to authorization of an index and scheduling of work. 

Once submitted, the request will reach the Planning and Estimating group.  Once the customer's Business Affairs Officer authorizes an index, the project request is turned into a work order and assigned to the Move Manager. The Move Manager will contact the customer within three days to confirm the scope of work and schedule any meetings. The move typically can be scheduled within two weeks, unless the customer has a pre-determined move schedule.

The Move Manager also works with the Project Managers, who are responsible for major capital projects. The Move Manager will coordinate with the Project Manager to provide logistical support to moves related to the project.  This may include temporarily housing the customer's items, or phased moves for projects with longer timeframes.

For more information, please contact Nathan Crist, Move Manager, at (313) 577-5307 or aj5818@wayne.edu.
