Military DITY Move? Get the Facts!
We give you the information you can't get from the military. We don't delve deeply into what forms you need, what publications apply, etc. That's better left to the appropriate military offices. What we tell you is just as important. It's information you can't get from the military: where to get military discounts, what options are available, how to best use the program, how to make the most of your DITY/Personally Procured Move (PPM).
Whether you're looking to make a little money, or simply to have more control over your stuff, we can help you make the most of your DITY/Personally Procured Move.
Here are the basics of a military DITY/Personally Procured Move:
The only way to really understand a DITY Move is to actually move yourself. Short of that, seeing how others have done on their moves, and what they have learned, is the next best thing. To help you as you ponder whether or not to move yourself, we have documented a real world DITY Move from Maryland to Colorado. We hope that it helps you to make the most informed decision on whether or not to move yourself, and more importantly to have the smoothest self-moving experience possible.
Our movers in this story are Aaron and Pam, along with their two young children and chocolate Labrador retriever. This particular move was their second experience moving themselves, but as you'll see, even experience does not prevent all mistakes. We invite you to learn from their story.
