Moving/Relocating Services for New Hires

Relocating to a new area can be a challenging and stressful experience. To address new hire relocation concerns, departments and new hires need expert information and proper planning to make the move smooth and satisfying.

Procurement and Strategic Sourcing (PASS) engaged in a Request for Proposal effort to streamline the process and to get the best possible combination of service, delivery and pricing to the University community and new hires. We are pleased to announce that the University has entered into a Strategic Supplier Relationship with Corrigan Moving Systems, an agent for United Van Lines.


  • Corrigan has a broad and diverse nationwide network of relocation specialists that understand the needs of relocating families, offices and labs.

  • Corrigan has special discounts with United Van Lines and will extend them to the new hire when relocating their household goods and laboratories.

  • A special rate has been established for WSU faculty and staff to make their move both cost effective and well planned.

  • Corrigan will provide pre-move information, cost estimates and scheduling assistance at no cost or obligation.


The complete process, including sample letters for new hires, can be found at the Detailed New Hire Move page. You will need your Academica access ID and password to access the page.


If you have questions or require assistance contacting Corrigan, please contact Kimberly Tomaszewski, Senior Buyer at (313) 577-3757 or ac9934@wayne.edu.
