Have a PCS coming up, or are you a member of the government or military looking to make a move to or from the Maryland or Washington, DC areas in the near future? We know military moving can be a massive hassle, but it’s far easier with a plan of action. If you’re about to make a military move, use this checklist to make certain everything is in order.
A PPM, or personally procured move, is a move where you opt to handle all of the logistics and details yourself, rather than leaving it all up to government officials. This is a voluntary program that you can opt into or out of, but choosing a PPM comes with a lot of advantages!
Not only does a PPM keep all of the details in your hands, but you are also paid 95% of what it would cost the government to move you, plus standard travel allowances. If you connect with an affordable mover, this can turn into a nice little bonus after your move.
If you’re intending to do a personally procured move, you need a plan of action in order to keep things organized. Here are the things you should get lined up right away when you’re about to move:

Utilizing temporary or long-term storage facilities gives you ample time to handle your move. Storage can be used as a secure place to store items during your move, or it can be a good way of keeping non-essentials safe until you’re done with unpacking.
