PCS - Military Relocation Orders

Make sure you use a complete Permanent Change of Station (PCS) checklist. Why? Your PCS orders could be sending you across the country, maybe even overseas. That means your transportation allowances for your next station of duty (or retirement destination, congrats!) will probably vary.

Understand which entitlements apply to your situation so you can easily budget for your move. Read more about getting a dislocation allowance for lodging and meals.

The Perfect Personally Procured Move (PPM, or "DITY Move")

A Personally Procured Move (aka PPM or "DITY Move") helps you stay in control of your belongings and saves you money. It's why a Hybrid™ Move is perfect for a PPM. Hire movers to load and unload, but then rent a truck or moving container separately. This dramatically lowers the cost hitting your transportation allowances budget, compared to hiring a typical Full Service Moving Company. Read more on how to save money on your PCS military move.

DITY Move Calculator

The burning question when making a DITY Move (or PPM) is, "How much will this cost?" Searching the internet turns up plenty of "get a quote" sites without real prices. Instead, use our DITY Move cost calculator to see exactly how much you should (or shouldn't) be paying for the easiest move of your career.
