Whether it’s time to PCS or move to your final home destination, you may be ready to call in reinforcements. Moving is a big deal and it takes a lot of work. From packing each room to loading and unloading, there is a lot involved. Hiring a moving company can take a ton of pressure off of you, your spouse, and your family. Here are some tips for how to find the best movers for you.
Hiring a professional moving company will save you time and energy. Moving is hard work and can really put a strain on you and your family. Let someone else do the heavy lifting and remove that stress from your to-do list. You have plenty of other things to worry about in this process. Why worry about all the lifting and shuffling of boxes and furniture too?
Finding the right moving company can be challenging. The last thing you want to do is have a bad experience or make your move more stressful. These tips will help you find the right company for you:
If you choose a complete military move, the Transportation Service Provider (TSP) will assign a moving company for you. The moving company will provide full service. From packing and storage to shipping and unloading in your new home. Some moving companies have contracted with the military to be ready for moves like this.
You might opt for a Personally Procured Move (PPM). You select the moving options and do it yourself (formerly known as DITY). The government will reimburse you 95-100% for this option. You can save money this way. You can research moving companies to find military discounts or lower rates. Some families elect to skip moving companies altogether and go it alone. But, that won’t make the process easier or less stressful.
Now you know what you are looking for when you start searching for moving companies. You have the option to let the TSP assign one for you or you can pay for a company on your own and be reimbursed. Weigh your options and do what you can to remove as much stress as possible. PCSing and moving are hard enough. Don’t make things harder than it has to be.
