Special Events Setup / Moving Services


The event set-up and to a limited degree, moving service consists of manpower and equipment to set-up tables and chairs for events, and to relocate office furniture  on the Boca Raton campus. This service  is available to Faculty, Staff and Students as it relates to event set-up and to Faculty and Staff as it relates to office moves. This service is provided at no charge to E&G operations. Auxiliary (Henderson and Student Union) operations, A.D. Henderson, and ERCCD are charged the allowable hourly labor rate, for setups only on the Boca Raton campus.

Due to limited staff, events, which are time sensitive, have priority over office moves and some moves may not be able to be accomplished by this service, due to their size, weight and/or complexity. A move is considered to be too large for utilization of this service if the move would require two (2) employees working more than four (4) hours; if a certain piece of equipment, or furniture is too large; too heavy or of too sensitive a nature for two (2) employees to safely move with the available equipment. This determination will be made by the manager of the moving operation.

In the event the move is deemed too large to perform with the moving service, the requestor will be advised to contact the Purchasing Department to be given the names of local private moving companies they can contact. The expense of using a non-FAU moving service is borne by the requesting department.

Requests for the moving or set-up service are to be made through Work Control by the submission of an Online Work Order Request Form , a minimum of 7 - 10 days prior to the desired date of service. A complete list of items to be moved needs to be included on the request. The request will not be scheduled until this list is received by Work Control.
