24VAC30-41-270. Self-Moves.

A. Businesses, farms and nonprofit organizations have the option of performing a self-move. When the district office can obtain two acceptable bids or estimates from qualified moving firms based on the certified inventory, the owner may be paid the actual reasonable moving cost, not to exceed the amount of the low bid.

B. If such bids or estimates cannot be obtained, the business may submit a bid based on the actual, reasonable, and necessary expenses for a self-move. Labor is to be charged at the actual rates paid by the business, but not to exceed the rate charged by local moving firms for the same services. Receipts or other evidence of expenses must be submitted before payment is made to support actual cost.

C. In the case of a low-cost, uncomplicated move, a moving cost finding, not to exceed $2,500, may be prepared by qualified district office staff.

D. It is possible to have a business move in which part of the move is a self-move and another part is a professional move.
