Moving to Puerto Rico from the U.S.

(updated 9/11/14)

Though Puerto Rico belongs to the U.S., it isn't actually part of the country -- it's a U.S. territory. Moving to Puerto Rico is different from moving state to state because there are a few extra requirements to follow. But don’t worry! We've done the research and have the information you need to move to Puerto Rico from the U.S.

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.

PCSing to Fort Carson?
If you’ve just been given Permanent Change of Station Orders for moving to Fort Carson, the next step is figuring out how to get your belongings there. I suggest doing a PPM (Personally Procured Move) with U-Pack.

Basically, if your move to Fort Carson ends up costing less than your allowance from the government, you get to keep what’s left over. This makes doing a PPM totally worth it. Sound good?
