Burgess Moving has been hired to move 2nd floor occupants to their new locations. If your lab is moving, please review the guidelines below. 

  • Except for items you want Burgess to pack, plan to have your items packed and ready by close of business the DAY BEFORE your move.  The moving schedule is very tight, your assistance is greatly appreciated.
  • Occupants are responsible for packaging small or personal items.
  • Lab PIs and managers are strongly advised to SELF package small research items such as breakables, sensitive instruments or equipment, etc. (large items can be moved by Burgess).
  • Large totes are available on loan for items that will be unpacked immediate after the move.
  • Cardboard boxes are available if you need time after the move to unpack, or need to store the contents – these need not be returned.
  • Packing supplies (bubble wrap, wrapping paper, tape, etc.) are available.
  • Labels are provided and MUST be on EVERY item, indicating the final destination (e.g., new building and room number, trash, surplus, etc.); this will ensure your items are not lost.
  • Chemicals
    • Place in the plastic totes available from Burgess – labs may use their own leak-proof alternative if desired,
    • Cushioning materials should be used between breakable containers, especially liquids,
    • Incompatibles items must be separated in sealed containers or moved in separate totes.
  • Discuss any “special-needs equipment” (delicate, irreplaceable, etc.) with Maggie in advance, so that movers can plan to keep your item safe and undamaged throughout the move.
