Removal Services

Manual Handling may be able to undertake routine moves of small furniture, desks, chairs, computers, books, equipment etc. up to and including small office moves.  Contact them on or see for more information.

For larger moves and for moves that manual Handling are unable to undertake in the required time, then the University has negotiated a term contract with Commercial Transfer, an external removals company, who may be able to help you.

In the first instance, send an email with an overview of your requirements to or fill out the form on their web site  You will receive an acknowledgement within 1 working day and will be contacted to arrange a convenient time for a site visit and an assessment of the job.  This will include details of crate requirements, time scales and any special circumstances and needs.

Following this visit, the remover will send you a quotation for the work.  If you are content with the quotation and require the removal services to go ahead, then you should raise an order through Oracle.

Commercial Transfer will also supply crates on a hire-only basis.  Please note that there is a daily, per crate rental charge, there are delivery and collection charges and lost crates have to be paid for. It is important to keep track of the crates and their costs, which can escalate.

As an alternative, Commercial Transfer also sell large, sturdy, re-usable cardboard cartons.

Please note that your move will not be scheduled until Commercial Transfer receive your order.  It is essential that the order is sent in good time.
