Weight tickets and a Military Move
Congratulations! If you’ve decided on a Personally Procured Move (PPM), you’re on the right track to saving money. When you visit your origin TMO prior to your move (a requirement), they’ll make you aware of what you need to do to make sure you’re properly reimbursed. One of the most important requirements is getting accurate certified weight tickets.

Military Moving with Children

Did you know that military kids move 6-9 times during their K-12 school years, according to the Military Child Education Coalition. With so many moves, it’s important to understand how to prepare for your move, complete your move, and help your kids adjust. Thankfully, studies have shown there are no long-term negative effects related to frequent military moves (according to this Navy article). However, teenagers can be affected more than younger children. No matter what age your kids are, kids who were prepared ahead of time adjusted better. You’re on the right track preparing your kids for your move!

Moving to Fort Wainwright, AK

Now that you have your Permanent Change of Station orders to begin moving to Fort Wainwright, you have a choice to make: let the government plan the move for you or do a Personally Procured Move (PPM), where you are in charge of your move. I suggest getting the best of both worlds (and possibly pocketing some of your moving allowance) with a “you pack, we drive” moving service like U-Pack. With U-Pack, you can get rates similar to truck rental, but you don’t have to drive. Sound like an ideal way to move to Ft. Wainwright? Then keep reading!
