HOUSEHOLD GOODS and LABORATORY EQUIPMENT
Each year the Transportation Office relocates an average of a 200 faculty and staff from all over the world. The majority of our moves take place from April through September. Our office has negotiated contracts with reputable nationwide moving companies such as, Allied, Graebel, North American and United Van Lines.
Interstate moving rates, otherwise known as tariff rates, are based on weight and distance. Our contracts allow Yale employee’s attractive discounts off of the tariff rates, specified dollar amount of free insurance and enhanced delivery schedules.
New employees should contact the Transportation Manager, Diane Brown at 432-9961 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange any up coming moves. Hiring departments will need to complete an Authorization for Household Relocation Allowance form.
The Household Goods moving tariff only requires the mover to insure your goods for $1.25 times the actual weight (in pounds) of the shipment or the declared lump sum value, whichever is greater; or sixty (60) cents per pound for the actual weight of any lost or damaged article at no additional charge.
Our negotiated contracts with Yales approved movers stipulate full replacement insurance. There is no deductible and no premium for coverage up to a specified amount. Additional insurance is available for a premium.
