So you got your new PCS orders and are planning your military move. Luckily for you, service members receive special moving benefits from the US government which can make the process that much easier. From moving crews to short term storage, here are some tips from Priority Moving on how to plan for a military move.
Most of the time, the US government will help service members relocate. This can be by either providing the moving crew and services or by reimbursing you for any moving expenses. Make sure you understand exactly which benefits you are entitled too and you know the agencies that can help you get those benefits.
Most PCS orders give you the option of housing on a military base or to find housing off the base. On-base housing is useful as it will most likely be close to where you must report for duty and housing is available. On the other hand, off-base housing gives you a lot more freedom in how you set things up.
Ideally, you should start planning things as soon as you get your PCS orders. Military orders generally have tighter time frames so once you get your orders the moving process will proceed relatively quickly.
Odds are you won’t be able to take all of your things. Consider selling old possessions in a yard sale or online, po0r you could opt for short term storage until you get settled in.
