A PCS or military move can be a challenge, especially if you have a lot of stuff. Breaking down your to-dos into more manageable pieces often helps. Here, you’ll find out how to handle household goods, manage your pet and guidelines on the shipping process.
Your installation household goods/transportation office can provide assistance with understanding your entitlements and shipping your personal property. For information on shipping your vehicle, check out the Personal Property Resources page on MilitaryOneSource.mil, or visit the PCSmyPOV website.
To help customers access moving resources more easily, Move.mil has moved to the Military OneSource website. Now, moving resources from the Defense Personal Property Program and Military OneSource are available on the Military OneSource website.
Visit the Moving Your Personal Property page on MilitaryOneSource.mil for comprehensive moving information, resources and services. Access content from the former Move.mil website, including moving guides and tips, videos and FAQs, entitlement brochures, household goods shipment logistics, DPS log in and more. There are also links for retiring and separating members, specific service branch information and comprehensive relocation assistance.
You are required to be present at your residence between the hours of 8 a.m.-5 p.m. If you are unable to be present during the delivery day make sure you designate a representative to act on your behalf with a power of attorney.
Do not leave your residence during the delivery day. Your delivery can start between the hours of 8 a.m.-5 p.m.
If personnel begin a job prior to 5 p.m., they can work until 9 p.m.
Check off each item on your inventory as it is received. Ensure that the condition is the same as it was at origin if not, annotate the discrepancy on your inventory sheet.
Ensure you inspect all items on your high value inventory document at time of delivery. Loss and damages must be annotated on Statement of Loss or Damage.
All items will be placed in the appropriate room on a one-time basis. Pre-determine the location of the placement of your large furniture items.
At destination, carrier personnel must reassemble all items that carrier personnel disassembled at origin.
Member/employee must keep crates for items received at delivery for future move of same item(s).
You are entitled to have your shipment unpacked. It's up to you how much or how little you wish to have done. At a minimum, consider having the crew unpack your standup wardrobe boxes, linen boxes and some dish packs.
Hanging clothing and linens can be easily placed in closets/cabinets. Some dishes and glassware can be placed in cabinets or on the kitchen counter. In addition, you can then place the items in the dishwasher, if available, for washing prior to using them. If you desire to unpack yourself, the transportation service provider is not required to return to collect empty boxes/containers, packing material, etc.
At the conclusion of the delivery, the driver will complete a DD Form 1840/1850 or Statement of Loss or Damage at destination, where he will annotate any discrepancies that might have occurred during the move. The driver will take the original and one copy, leaving three copies for you. Please ensure that you annotate an estimated dollar amount for your loss/damage. As you complete the unpacking, check everything over thoroughly. If you discover any additional damage or missing items, annotate your findings on the DD Form 1840R/1850R, which is the reverse side of the form. Please put an estimated dollar amount of the damage in block 14c. You must turn in the DD Form 1840/1850 to the claims section of your installation legal office within 180 days of delivery.
You have 180 days to complete filing your claim. (It is no longer two years.)
