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 Moving 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 PCS & Military Moves 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.
As soon as you receive your permanent change of station orders, it’s important to begin scheduling your move. The Defense Personal Property System, or DPS, is the online system you can use to request and manage your household goods shipment(s). For more information and a DPS log in link, visit the PCS & Military Moves page on MilitaryOneSource.mil.

Moving with your pet includes researching airline requirements and quarantine restriction laws in your new location. Many airlines have requirements for size, weight, breed, number of animals, kennel construction, documentation and seasonal limitations. Small pets may be shipped on military flights, but availability and regulations frequently change. Contact your installation household goods/transportation office to request specific country instructions. Military OneSource can make your move easier with helpful tips, resources and hands-on information related to moving with pets and more.
This narrative is current and applies to most military personnel and federal civilians being assigned to Andersen Air Force Base 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.
