How To Handle Equipment Moving As Professor/advisor?

Recommended Posts

So our group advisor had to move our equipment from one lab to another since the department was moving to another building. Our advisor and us pitched in using uhaul to bring it where it was needed.


I MAY choose academia in the future and personally, I would not want my students to have to handle the move themselves. Is there any alternative way to handle it? Is there a good reason to do it the way formerly described, anyway?

Budget is prob the best reason. You can hire movers, but if you can put the kids to work (and technically have them PAY to work too) it's better on your budget; which either makes you look better to your superiors, or lets you pocket some excess, or lets you do a better job wherever money is needed, or a combination/all of the above.
