Did you know that following death and divorce, moving is the third most stressful event you can go through in life? A military move is no exception. In fact, it maybe even more stress intensive, since it is not only stressful for the military personnel, but it is also stressful for civilians. For this reason, it’s very important to plan wisely and thoroughly. There are options for a military move, and if you decide to participate in a DITY move, or a do it yourself move, military members are reimbursed by the government to move their own possessions. Of course, not all expenses are reimbursed, but certain things like the cost of packaging materials, furniture pads, and truck rental including the cost of oil, gas, and tolls, are.
Another advantage of a DITY military move is that the service member and their immediately family are in control of all of the aspects of movement. That way, you know exactly what’s going on with all of you and your family’s possessions, without having to worry about the integrity of the move, or the security of your belongings.
Like many trucking companies that offer moving services, there are online tools to help estimate the cost of a military DITY move. They usually have uninspired, candid names, such as ‘DITY move calculator’, but it’s very candid in it’s phrasing and so would be easy to find on an online search at least. A military moving, like any form of moving, can be very stressful, but at least there are tools available to make it easier. Also, government compensation makes a military move easier as well!
