Household Goods Moving Services – PROCESS and EXCLUSIVE PROVIDER CONTACTS (Local Agents)

Revisions Effective 5-7-19

Buyer: Cathy Heckman

Email: checkman@smu.edu, 214-768-2174

EXCLUSIVE PROVIDERS are mandatory sources for Household Goods Moving Services for all SMU campuses in compliance with SMU Policy 3.11.  Household Goods Moving Services pertains to moving personal property, vehicles, and lab equipment.

SMU Exclusive Movers are full service LOCAL AGENTS for National Carriers. National Carriers have many local agent offices nationwide and internationally that work together.  Exclusive Local Agents are independently-owned with independent billing. They will coordinate the move directly with the Origin Agent. The Origin Agent will conduct an in-home inventory survey to determine approximate weight of items to be moved for the estimate. 

Under the 2017 Tax Reform Act, all relocation expenses are considered taxable income whether paid by SMU on behalf of the employee or reimbursed to the employee. SMU is required to report all moving expenses as taxable income and are subject to appropriate tax withholdings.

Other moving expenses such as airfare and hotel charges are separate from Household Goods and handled after the move by reimbursement. Contact Tax Compliance at this link for additional information.

Maximum liability coverage paid is $6 to $7 per pound times the weight of the shipment up to a maximum of $120,000 to $125,000. Purchase of additional coverage is available from the moving company. 2) Purchasing can intervene with the mover on employee’s behalf.

Employee Responsibility

  1. Contact SMU LOCAL AGENTS for household goods, vehicle and lab equipment moves.

    ***DO NOT contact the National Carrier or another agent of the National Carrier***

  2. Obtain estimates from 1 to 4 of the SMU LOCAL AGENTS.
  3. Email estimates to the department contact and state which moving company is preferred. 
  4. Estimates are non-binding estimates and not considered a bid, contract or guaranteed price.
  5. Final moving charges are figured on actual weight of items moved, mileage and services performed. 
  6. Communicate, schedule/book move, and report damage or loss directly with the SMU Local Agent.

Department Responsibility

  1. Provide employee all relocation instructions and SMU LOCAL AGENT contact information.

  5. When SMU pays a specific amount toward the household goods moving expense:

    PO will be set for the moving allowance. The moving company will bill SMU for the PO amount and bill
    employee for the remaining actual expense.

      OR

    PO will be set for the full estimate amount.  The employee will reimburse SMU with a check for the
    difference between the final invoice total and the agreed upon moving allowance.

  6. Notify employee how payment will be handled.

2. NON-EXCLUSIVE MOVER REQUIREMENTS & PROCESS

***Purchasing must review and approve all non-exclusive movers BEFORE the move can be booked.

SMU does not have contract agreements with non-exclusive movers.

SMU Purchasing cannot intervene on employee’s behalf.

The University reimburses for moving expenses up to the agreed upon moving allowance. Submit Reimbursement Requests with an invoice from the moving company.  Alternatively, you may choose to receive the moving allowance as a lump sum amount in your first paycheck. SMU is required to report all moving expenses as taxable income and are subject to appropriate tax withholdings.

Employee Responsibility

  1. Obtain THREE (3) estimates: one from non-exclusive mover and two from exclusive movers. Estimates must be based on the same inventory and approximate weight and be an apple-to-apple comparison.
  2. Obtain W9 and COI (Certificate of Insurance) forms from the non-exclusive mover.  COI must meet SMU Insurance Requirements for Movers and be approved prior to booking move.  (Insurance requirements provided in separate document.)
  3. Email estimates, W9 and COI to department contact and state reason for requesting a non-exclusive mover.
  4. Moves contracted with non-exclusive moving companies must be paid with personal funds. After completion of the move, submit a Moving Expense Reimbursement Request to the department contact for review.  Reimbursement approval is in accordance with the move allowance agreement. The streamlined reimbursement process for moving expenses allows for quick payment.
