For Military

If you’re in the service or part of a military family, moving is likely a regular part of life for you. Though it is possible to have the Department of Defense help facilitate the move for you, it is sometimes easier to seek out a mover yourself. Read the article below to learn more about the benefits of choosing your own mover.

Long Distance Military Moving Companies

When you receive your PCS orders, you’ll have some options when it comes to finding a moving company. The two main types of moves for members of the military are those done through the military, in which the movers are hired on your behalf, and personally procured moves, in which you choose a moving company yourself. There are some advantages to both, depending on your circumstances. 

If you prefer not to go through the work of finding a mover on your own for a personally procured move, it’s probably easier to have the military handle the logistics for you. If, however, you want more power over your choice of movers and things like moving dates, services, and times, you might be better off looking toward a personally procured move in which you choose the mover.

The Advantages of Hiring a Military Mover

Whether you seek your own moving company to help you or go with one selected by the Defense Personal Property System, there are several advantages to working with an established, professional moving company. 

  • You’ll have less stress and worry involved with the move since professionals are assisting you.
  • There is less risk involved with professional movers helping your relocation to another base. They are trained to handle your possessions as carefully as possible without causing harm to your belongings or injury to themselves.
  • You won’t have to do any laborious tasks if you choose full service moving. The movers will pack, transport, load and unload all your belongings.
  • Your military mover is required to carry the minimum state required insurance on all their moving services.
  • Up-to-date, high quality transport and moving equipment is used to pack up and relocate your belongings safely.
  • You will get lower rates and even have the ability to take advantage of military discounts.
