How Do I Buy...

Materials Handling Equipment

Procurement Agent(s):
Jeff Brundage

Description:

Materials handling equipment includes items such as pallet jacks, forklifts, backhoes and skid loaders. Generally, these items are above the bid limit. Contact Procurement Services for help in bidding this type of equipment.

 

Large pieces of equipment (value of $5,000 or more) may require physical damage insurance when rented. This protects ISU from liability should the equipment be damaged or destroyed. Contact Procurement Services for all rentals so that the agreement can be reviewed and insurance obtained. Do not sign the supplier agreement. Procurement Services will sign all rental agreements for material handling equipment.
