How to Prepare Your Military Relocation
Proper planning can eliminate many of the common headaches that come from military relocations. Having an organized PCS checklist can help you plan your move and ensure you don’t leave out any important details. We have checklists available for every part of your move, from packing your bathroom, packing your office, packing your living room to packing your bedroom. Holding a garage sale is a great way to get some extra cash, and downsize unnecessary items.
If you are turning your PCS relocation into a DITY move, take a look at some of our DITY moving checklists as well as articles on how to choose a rental truck and self-storage options. We even have advice on DITY moves with kids and how to make the move easier for them. An important step in moving is hiring a moving company with whom you feel comfortable.
Before submitting your DITY/PPM claim, include all necessary documentation. Verify that your mailing address, date and signature on the DD 1351-2 and DD 2278 forms are correct. Review the instructions on how to complete the the DD1351-2 for DITY/PPM Moves.
