Home isn’t a place, it’s the people around you. Few people understand this saying as much as military families. However, when you or your spouse receives new orders for a PCS, the idea of having to pack up and move all of your possessions across the country (or sometimes the world) can seem daunting. While some military members choose to let the military handle their move, others prefer to take the PPM/DITY route. Here are seven tips for a smooth and successful PPM

The military is big on acronyms and procedures, and these can make your move more confusing if you aren’t aware of their meaning. As soon as possible, schedule an appointment with your nearest Personal Property Transportation Office (PTO). Here you can fill out the necessary forms, get approval for your PPM move and ask any questions you have.

While moving may be par for the course for most military families, we strive to make the process as easy and stress-free as possible for those who serve. Call us today to learn about the UNITS military discounts and locations.
