Making Permanent Change of Station (PCS) Moves Simple And Clean

It’s As Easy As 1-2-3

Permanent Change of Station (PCS) moves are a fact of life for military personnel. Whether you’re a seasoned veteran or a new recruit, the prospect of packing up and moving your life to a new location can be daunting. Not to worry we have got your six.

What is a PCS Move?

A PCS move is a relocation of military personnel and their families from one duty station to another. This can occur within the United States or overseas. The military covers the cost of the move, including transportation of household goods, temporary lodging, and travel expenses for the service member and their family.

There are three types of PCS moves that military personnel are most likely to encounter:

1. Continental United States (CONUS) Move: This type of move occurs when a service member is transferred to a new duty station within the continental United States. The military will arrange for transportation of household goods, such as furniture and personal belongings, to the new location.

2. Household Goods Transportation and Storage (HHTS) Move: This type of move is similar to a CONUS move but includes the storage of household goods for a period of time. This is useful for service members who need to temporarily store their belongings while waiting for on-base housing to become available.

3. Personally Procured Move (PPM): This type of move allows service members to transport their own household goods using their personal vehicle or a rented truck. The military will reimburse the service member for the cost of transportation, up to a certain limit. This type of move is also known as a “Do-It-Yourself” move.

Each type of PCS move has its own advantages and disadvantages. For example, a CONUS move may be more convenient because the military handles all aspects of the move, but a PPM move gives service members more control over the process. It’s important to carefully consider your options and choose the type of move that best suits your needs.

I don’t know what we would’ve done if we hadn’t found Frank & his team! My daughter & her family only had about 6 weeks to plan their move from Brooklyn, NY to Colorado Springs, CO. Luckily, we found Rentedtruckdriver.com! They were a God send! They were so helpful with the planning! Julian, our driver, was wonderful— keeping us in the loop the whole way! We felt that their belongings were in good hands! Thank you to Frank, Julian & Brenda!

Our Process For Military PCS Moves

Our process begins with your instant no-obligation estimate. With the information you’ve provided on our website, we generate a custom quote that takes into account your selected move date, your location and destination, the type of truck, and whether or not you need your vehicle transported along with your belongings. Think of the quote as the blueprint for your perfect move. Although this quote is not a booking, it will give you an overview of the costs (usually the estimate is within $100 of the actual cost) that you can expect when you book with us.

Once you’ve decided to book with us and have reviewed your agreement, you’ll make your first payment, which includes the initial deposit and your driver’s travel expenses. Once your deposit is paid, your agreed-upon cost is locked in. (We say this a lot, but it bears repeating, there are never hidden costs or surprise charges when you book with Rented Truck Driver. The price in your final agreement is the price that you pay.) We will then introduce your driver via a conference call. We will listen to your needs, discuss the particulars of your move, and answer any questions that you might have.

A few days prior to pick up, you’ll be invited to a group chat with your driver and our support team. From there, you can track your driver’s progress and confirm that we are on schedule, discuss the locations of any necessary stops, and have any additional questions answered. On the day of your move, your driver arrives at your location and drives your rented truck safely to your destination.
