Can I Save Money During a Military Move?

You-Pack for Military Moves

If you are in the U.S. Military and need to move, there are a few government-sponsored options available. The government will offer to pay for transportation, equipment, and labor; or you can take a portion of the money allotted for that move and pay your own expenses. If you can do some of the work yourself, you can keep any leftover money from your government allotment.

A do-it-yourself move is a good option for military employees who want to save money. With a you-pack rental, a storage container is delivered to your home. You do the packing and loading into a storage container and a professional driver picks up and delivers the container to your new home.

Consider how much you save with long distance moving companies like U-Pack®. They offer delivery all over the U.S. and to many locations throughout the world. Be sure to get a quote, and look for moving services that charge by container (not weight) and also include your fuel, sales tax, and toll fees in your estimate.
