Moving can be a difficult adjustment. Moving in the military will begin with new orders, which will mean that you have to relocate to elsewhere in the United States or even move overseas. The military will provide you with the information regarding the new location you will be moving to, the anticipated time of arrival, and a list of helpful contacts to get in touch with during this time.
The first thing that you are going to need to do once the military move has been officially confirmed is to take this confirmation to the station relocation office on your current base. The staff members that work there are fully trained and will be able to help you with managing the relocation by providing you with resources that can ensure the move is a cost-effective and reliable one.
The staff will be able to determine the move allowances that you are entitled to, connect you to the offices at the new station that you will be moving to, create a calendar for the relocation and provide a moving checklist. They will also help you to fully understand the out-processing and help with getting you a sponsor.
Military moving generally entails some kind of temporary lodging or housing and covering the costs of moving a number of household goods and any spare vehicles that are privately owned as well as professional assets. Not all allowances are guaranteed, however, so you need to check with your relocation office.
