Ordering new furniture

To order furniture, choose your items from the UQeMarket.

Property and Facilities (P&F) are in process of consolidating furniture suppliers to align with the Whole of Government supply. This supply agreement will live in UQeMarket to provide the best value to the University, deliver a diverse range of suppliers, as well as greater choice in ergonomics.

Contact your relevant HSW representative if you are unsure about ergonomics and design, or if you need specialised furniture.

Moving furniture and equipment

You must take into account health and safety regulations for manual handling when moving furniture and equipment. If you need assistance in moving furniture or equipment, you should use UQ's approved contractor, We Move All.

They offer:

  • furniture disposal
  • second-hand furniture storage
  • furniture and equipment moving
  • rubbish removal
  • storage facility
  • furniture assembly and disassembly.

Contact We Move All by email or phone for a response within 24 hours.

The UQ rate for 2 removalists and a truck is $110 per hour including GST. We Move All can bill your department directly using their vendor ID. They also accept credit cards.

Disposing of old, unwanted and broken furniture

Unused or unwanted furniture does not have to go to waste. There are several places you can send your old furniture so it can be used by other members of the UQ community. UQ WARPit (Waste Action Reuse Portal) can be used to post and claim unwanted usable furniture and equipment from UQ schools and centres for work purposes.

You can view a selection of second-hand furniture in person at the Second-Hand Furniture Store located in the Seddon Building (Building 82E) on St Lucia campus. The store is open Thursdays from 10:30am to 12pm. You can then claim any wanted items through UQ WARPit.

Non-compliant, broken or unusable furniture can be sent to Brisbane City Council's resource recovery centres using the UQ removalist contractor, We Move All.
