Hi Sam,

To adjust the pivot temporarily use the " key or Shift + " to just 
adjust the Translate pivot. This will bring you into Pivot Mode.  Then 
select the v key to snap to a point. Select the " key to bring it back 
from Pivot Mode. When you want to move the pivot back to the Center, go 
back to Pivot Mode, Right Click on the square to bring up the menu, 
select Snap To and then Centroid.

You should be able to snap to other geo just by selecting V which allows 
you to snap to another geo's points.

I hope this helps!
