There is no one policy for all special equipment and these will need to be handled on a case-by-case basis. There are categories, however. For example, large floor-standing equipment (e.g., centrifuges), microscopes, computers, etc. If you want to move a special piece of equipment yourself, i.e., a microscope, reserve the BPP vehicle so that there is no question regarding university business and liability. Certain equipment, like centrifuges and pcr machines don’t need to be packed. The movers will place them on shelves, wheel them into the truck, and then secure the contents in place.
