Best military discounts for moving​

Unlike a government-paid full-service move, a DITY move puts you in control on moving day — and it can save you money.  While it does mean doing some (or all) of the work, having money left over from your moving allowance is a big benefit. And by adding in a military moving discount, you can stretch the savings further. Take a look at discounted options.

Lower cost military moving options​

Once you’re approved for a Personally Procured Move (PPM), compare options to find one that meets your needs and budget:

U-Pack. Because of its ease and flexibility, U-Pack is a favorite among military members. It’s a self-move service where you pack and load, and we take care of the driving (and getting empty and full weight tickets). Just select a move date that works for you, and we’ll deliver the moving equipment (a moving trailer or ReloCube container), then we’ll drive it to your new duty station. Use military moving discount code MIL50 to save $50 on your U-Pack move.

Truck rental. Though truck rental can be a good money-saving option for local moves, it’s not always the cheapest for long distance — even with a military truck rental discount. Keep in mind that with truck rental, things like fuel, liability coverage, taxes, tolls and towing aren’t included in the base price. Then there’s the work required with packing, loading, unloading and driving an unfamiliar vehicle across the country. Add that to the work involved with getting full and empty weight tickets yourself, and it can become even more of an expense (and hassle).  

More about how U-Pack helps save on your military move

Here’s where U-Pack stands out when it comes to a cross-country PPM: rates are based on the space you use, which makes it an affordable alternative to full-service companies that charge based on weight and truck rental companies that charge based on truck size. If the price you pay for your move is lower than your authorized reimbursement amount, you get to keep the difference. Putting money back in your pocket is always a bonus! Get a free moving quote from U-Pack to see what to expect for your move! And don’t forget to add your military discount.  

Note: If you need certified weight tickets for reimbursement purposes (our military moving specialists can help).  If reserving your move online, be sure to select that you’ll need weight tickets — they must be requested prior to moving day. Designate your branch of service so we can provide the appropriate documentation.
