A permanent change of station or move can be overwhelming, 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 may have details on the documents you’ll need when shipping household goods. If available, your installation provides specific instructions on shipping your vehicle. Check transportation for additional information on your vehicle.
The Defense Personal Property System is the online system you can use to request and manage your household goods shipment(s). For how-to guides to assist with your application, go to Move.mil.
For comprehensive information on military moves, check out the Moving Guide section at Move.mil. The Moving with the Military Overview provides information about household goods shipping and storage, automobiles, and pets.

Moving with your pet includes researching airline requirements and quarantine restriction laws in your new location.

As soon as you receive your permanent change of station orders, it’s important to coordinate your move immediately by following the 7 Steps to Make Your Household Goods Move a Smart Move.
In addition to planning your move, you can start getting your house and family ready. Clean up and get rid of junk. Hold a yard sale or donate serviceable items you no longer need. Gather important family records. Remember, in overseas areas, houses are generally much smaller than those in the United States and the electric current may be different.
If you are moving overseas, begin to plan what items will go in unaccompanied baggage, in your household goods shipment and in long-term, Non-Temporary Storage, or NTS, storage – check with your sponsor or overseas housing office to assist in determining what items to ship.
You’ll also want to log onto the Defense Personal Property System, the online system you use to request and manage your household goods shipment(s). For how-to guides to assist with your application, go to Move.mil.
This narrative is current and applies to most military personnel and federal civilians being assigned to Andersen AFB, Guam. Refer to the contact list for more information. Review the attached document for detailed information about the Shipment of Firearms to Guam.
Eligible members stationed in the contiguous United States may arrange for the pack out of their full weight allowance upon receiving orders. The carrier or agent can then move the shipment to Guam immediately. It is recommended members stationed overseas arrange for the immediate shipment of household goods upon receipt of orders, because of the lengthy transit time from some overseas-to-overseas locations. Members are also entitled to an unaccompanied baggage shipment or express shipment.
The estimated shipping time for household goods and privately owned vehicles from both the U.S. East Coast and West Coast is 45 to 60 days. This is the reason to make sure the unaccompanied baggage shipment has enough materials in it to set up a temporary residence.
Inbound members should leave their gas stoves and dryers in storage in the U.S. because government quarters and some private rentals are equipped with electrically operated appliances. However, most private rentals do not provide washers and dryers. Storage in government quarters is very limited, so people should leave all major appliances they will not use on Guam, such as an extra refrigerator or large chest type freezer, in temporary storage in the U.S.
Air Force members should call the traffic management office (Personal Property Processing Office) at 671-366-4227 and leave their phone number and address. For information about privately owned vehicles, call 671-339-2205.
