Frequently, men and women enlisted in the military are faced with the possibility of relocation. Moving for military personnel is quite different from moving for civilians. Relocating is not an easy task for anyone but the government usually eases the process for military members since it is typically frequent among them. For their work and dedication to serving their country, military members are provided options when it comes to relocation for work. Most times, the location is reimbursed by the government, however this may mean you and your family move according to their guidelines.
Military moving requires that several things be considered. The first is to ensure plans to start packing or looking for houses are shelved till orders have been official. You may have been told about orders regarding a change in station, however, wait till its official and then you can be certain of what line of action to take next. When the time arrives for packing, sort out what you can be able to move yourself and what will be left for movers to box. If you are anxious at having movers pack your home, then look into a partial do-it-yourself move. Separate items you would rather have in a storage facility. If the move may be short term, it is okay to leave out-of-season clothing and items stored away.
It is up to you to weigh the options of using a professional moving company or handling it yourself. For some families, it may be difficult leaving all the details to a moving company but oftentimes this option is the best to take in a military move. Whether, you organize your military move or it is by a professional mover, you should always plan ahead. If it is your first military move, it likely won’t be the last. The experience gotten from this will serve you should you be moving another time.
