Moving with the Military: How to Make the Most of Your PCS Move

When it comes to a PCS move, otherwise known as ‘Permanent Change of Station’, there are a number of things you must make yourself aware and do before the move to go as smoothly as possible.

Top Tips for your PCS Move:

  • Start by creating a personal moving calendar that includes checklists and important phone numbers that you will need throughout the process.
  • Summer is the busiest time to move, especially around July 4 and Memorial Day. Planning ahead and organization is vital. Ensure important dates and movers are scheduled well in advance. Remember that your TO (Transportation Office), as well as your PPSO (Personal Property Shipping Office), is the main point of contact throughout your PCS move. Use these contacts and ask any questions from the beginning.
  • Once you receive your confirmation and know your date range for moving, it is advised to immediately start your moving process and ensure you are as organized as possible. Contact your TO or PPSO to find out more specific information relating to your move.
  • Speak to the professional and skilled moving team at National Van Lines, who will help you on your journey. We can help by providing packing supplies, moving day services, and unpacking.
