Personal Procurement Move Information

We are dedicated to your complete satisfaction.

The U.S. Military provides the opportunity for all service members to arrange their own move. This is known as a Personal Procurement Move (PPM) or commonly referred to as Do It Yourself moving (DITY Moving).

PPM moving allows service members to have greater control over the outcome of their move. With PPM, you have full control of the logistics of your move which gives you the opportunity to check moving costs as well as getting to know and choose your own moving company. Triangle Movers has experience with helping and completing a variety of PPMs.

Things to consider when planning a PPM or DITY move:

    1. Any service member must have their PPM pre-approved. After receiving your PCS orders, meet with the staff at the Personal Property Transportation Office (PTO) to receive all your needed paperwork.
    2. Determine the type of move you will be having. Decide whether to have a moving company do all the work for you. Factors to consider if you choose to do everything yourself are rental and equipment arrangements. Your PTO representative can provide you with recommendations for where to find everything you are looking for.
    3. When admitted into the PPM program, you receive a government payment of 95% of what it would cost the government to move you. If you spend less then what the 95% would be, you get to keep the rest.
    4. PPM payment is based on “weight tickets”. You will need to submit a loaded weight and an empty weight for your PCS shipment, even if you are hiring a moving company. The government authorizes a weight limit for you based on your current military rank as well as your family status.
    5. Keep receipts for all moving expenses. Maximize your profit by keeping track of all the expenses you made in order to complete your move. This includes packing material, rental equipment, gas, etc.
    6. Submit your settlement as soon as possible after your move. You will only have 45 days to submit a claim for full payment of your PPM allowance.

How Do I Know Which Movers are Trustworthy?

With how big the moving industry is, it can be pretty difficult to determine who the best moving company is for you. Here are some of the key things to look for when researching a moving company:

  • Badges: Look to see if they have any certifications or if they are accredited by the BBB. These will also show you if they have won any awards for top service.
  • Experience: You may want to avoid movers that are relatively new. Experience is key to a good move. This could be listed anywhere on the site, but the most surefire location is in their About Us page.
  • Reviews: Find online reviews. If a moving company has less than a 4-star average rating on their Google Reviews, there is most likely an issue there.
  • Family-Owned and Operated: This is always a big plus. Not only will this help you avoid shady moving companies, but it will also help you avoid ones that are too big to genuinely care about your move.

The only way to know for sure is to do in-depth research. As you narrow down your list, look more and more into these aspects of the company to find the best one for you.
