The LSU System has partnered with Armstrong Relocation, a leading relocation company and authorized United Van Lines agent, to facilitate the moves of new employees. Having a contract with Armstrong means deeper discounts and excellent customer service, ensuring the best possible experience for newly hired faculty or staff. To learn more about Armstrong and for helpful moving information, please visit the LSU Relocation website.
The services and amount that will be offered to candidates may vary, depending on the position and available funds of the hiring department. Armstrong is familiar with our procedures and is able to offer creative solutions for employees who are given a fixed amount. The hiring department will be billed up to the amount that was offered to the candidate after the move is performed. Should the move exceed the fixed amount, the employee will be billed directly for the remaining balance only. Armstrong was awarded the contract through a competitive bid process so there is no need for the employee to obtain bids from different moving companies.
Armstrong also offers a referred realtor service where they can put the new employee
in touch with an experienced realtor to assist in the purchasing of a new home or
selling of the current home. Should the new employee utilize the referred realtor
to purchase a home, cash reimbursements approximating $5.00 per $1,000 of home value
at origin and destination will be paid to the new faculty or staff member.
New employees may contact their hiring department for more information about the program and how to take advantage of the services offered. Hiring departments may contact their designated staffing partner in the Office of Human Resource Management with any questions at 225-578-8200.
