Forklift Use

When a common carrier shipment arrives at Receiving & Stores, the owning department (consignee) is notified and either the freight will be unloaded at the Receiving & Stores warehouse, or the truck will be instructed to unload the items at the owning department's location (building). 

If the department does not have the means to unload the merchandise at their location, they can request Receiving & Stores to assist them with unloading their merchandise using a forklift for a fee of $75.00.

If merchandise is requested to be unloaded at a remote location (other than the department's physical location), a fee of $60.00 per hour with a one hour minimum will apply.

Receiving & Stores has two forklifts capable of off-loading and moving about anything that a department may receive or that they may need relocated to another campus location.

Please remember that the forklifts are for hard surface use only and will not be used in off-road conditions.
