How do I get the army to move my stuff?

  1. Eligibility Criteria For Military Sponsored Moves

How do I get the army to move my stuff?

The military typically takes care of packing and shipping your belongings in crates to your designated location. Additionally, if required, some of your household goods can be stored stateside until your return.

The Relocation Assistance Program plays a pivotal role in the U.S. military, ensuring soldiers and their families face reduced stress during their frequent relocations. Military members often undergo regular station changes and unexpected moves. This program provides the necessary support, ranging from pre-move planning to post-move settlement. Whether it's about finding a new home, school, or understanding the new environment, this program ensures a smoother transition, allowing military personnel to concentrate on their responsibilities.

Eligibility Criteria for Military Sponsored Moves

In the realm of the U.S. Military, full-time active duty service members are eligible for relocation assistance. This extends to members from all branches of the military including Army, Navy, Marine Corps, Air Force, and Coast Guard. Simultaneously, Guard and Reserve members activated for extended periods are similarly qualified. Other eligible parties encompass civilian employees that are being relocated by their Military Department and wounded soldiers undergoing treatment or rehabilitation.

However, it is crucial to underscore that not all service members are granted the same relocation benefits. The benefits vary largely based on factors such as rank and matrimonial status. That being the case, service members who are unmarried and live on-base may usually have their property packed and transported to their new location by the military itself. On the other hand, those who are in the ranks of E-6 and above, have families, or are civilians might receive allowances to cover the costs of relocating, house hunting, temporary housing, and other similar costs related to the move.

The Process of Requesting Military Relocation Assistance

Firstly, it's important to understand that the request for military relocation assistance begins with receiving your orders to relocate. Once that happens, you’ll need to make an appointment with the local transportation office, or Personal Property Shipping Office (PPSO). This office is the guiding authority when it comes to military relocations. The personnel there will provide you all the necessary details and policies related to your move.

Afterwards, a 'move counseling session' would be scheduled. It is a session to educate personnel in the process of government and Do-It-Yourself (DITY) moves. Here, one learns about their rights and responsibilities during relocations and the various programs available in this regard. The knowledge garnered during this session empowers military personnel to have a more efficient and less stressful moving experience.

I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

There are a lot of options for auto transport these days, which surprisingly makes it harder to find a good company. I received more than 10 offers to ship my car, but I couldn’t decide on any of them... Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport.
