Learn about Contracting with a Full-Service Moving Company (Common Carrier)

Departments are encouraged to utilize an authorized, cooperative contract for household moving services.

Step by Step

  1. Select the Vendor:

    Using a Contact Vendor
    The University utilizes a number of cooperative contracts for common carriers. These are optional use contracts, however we encourage their use because they have been established through a competitive process and the companies have agreed to terms and conditions favorable to VCU. If utilizing a contract vendor, you must obtain at least one quote based on the contract pricing. When contacting a contract vendor, you must inform the vendor that they will be utilizing the VCU/VASCUPP contract.

    Using a Non-Contract Vendor
    You are allowed to use a vendor that is not on contract, but if you do, you must retrieve quotes from the vendor and submit them to your department as instructed below.

  2. Collect Quotes from Non-Contract Vendors and Submit Them To Your Department

    • If using a contracted vendor, quotes are not required.
    • If not using a contracted vendor and expenses are less than $10,000, only a single quote is required.
    • If not using a contracted vendor and expenses are $10,000 and over, three (3) quotes are required. The lowest quote should be used. Departments are encouraged to contact Procurement Services for guidance.
