Quality Move Management (QMM), which has been UBC’s designated relocation company since 2007, remains an available option, and is the preferred vendor for senior management staff moves, as well as moves over $75,000.
Quotes and estimates may be requested of one or each of the three available moving companies.
About AMJ Campbell and Armstrong
Because CAUBO manages the agreements with its moving companies, they are responsible for maintaining the appropriate quality of service. If you choose one of CAUBO’s moving companies, you must work directly with AMJ Campbell or Armstrong.
UBC continues to manage the agreement with QMM. If you are a hiring department that selects QMM as your moving company, please continue to follow existing UBC administrative procedures. UBC’s relocation administrator and QMM’s relocation coordinators remain your key contacts for QMM moves.
Existing moving contracts
The additional CAUBO moving company options are effective July 1, 2019. Any existing contracts or quotes negotiated before July 1, 2019, and/or moves contracted with QMM must be honoured.
Policy and reimbursement
Under Policy HR6 – Relocation (formerly Policy #82), the university has designated relocation and moving companies that must be used if relocating faculty and senior management staff wish to have eligible expenses reimbursed by UBC’s Central Relocation Fund, the fund that supports the policy.
QMM is the preferred moving company for senior management relocations (e.g. President, VPs, AVPs) and executives (e.g. Deans) if hiring departments wish to access the Central Relocation Fund.
CAUBO-managed moving companies are also eligible for reimbursement through the Central Relocation Fund.
On Jan. 31, UBC President Prof. Santa Ono issued a bulletin regarding the task force established to determine what assistance the university can offer those affected by the U.S. Executive Order preventing individuals from seven countries from entering the U.S. for 90 days. The task force is continuing its work, but in the meantime if you have any faculty, post-doctoral fellows, and staff with immigration, visa, or work permit questions, please have them contact:
We have a memo for all heads and managers with information on the temporary extension of the relocation moving company contract with QMM (while the RFP process is under way), and a reminder about shuttle expenses and a deadline for submission of relocation reimbursement claim forms for FY2015/16.
