Military Movers near Me
As a member of the military, you’ll find that relocations are quite common. Those enlisted in any branch of the military are often required to change bases without much notice given to them. The details regarding these mandatory relocations are provided in the PCS (Permanent Change of Station) Orders handed to the members that are required to relocate. The military does provide assistance to those required to move. They have moving services available as well as a reimbursement program that greatly helps reduce the amount of money you paid to the movers for help with your relocation. If you choose to find your own moving company instead of going through the military’s moving services, you are still eligible for reimbursement. Just make sure that you hire a mover nearby with experience and services geared towards military relocations.
The Importance of Hiring the Right Mover
The process of carrying out a residential move for a non-military member and seeing through the relocation for those who are a member of the military are quite different. Military moves, especially for those moving from a base to another base, require special permissions. A moving company unfamiliar with the process of military relocations will likely face some challenges that may increase the time it takes for them to fulfill the relocation as needed. Moving companies that offer military moving services or that specializes in this type of move will have the knowledge and experience necessary to ensure a successful relocation.

The strict standards held by each branch of the military will require quick and dedicated attention during the process of relocation. Moving companies that aren’t issued through the military must get permission to enter a base and will likely need to undergo inspection on the way in and/or off the base. However, your military mover will have prepared for all this ahead of time so they can avoid any issues that might affect the time it takes to complete the relocation as scheduled.
It is common for those that choose to take advantage of the moving services provided to them through the military to experience some difficulties. These moving services are often unreliable and not as efficient as those provided by outside military moving companies. To lessen the amount of stress involved in your relocation and to receive better service and protection, it is best to hire your own local military mover for the job.
