How to Prepare for Your Military Move

Self storage

If you are a member of the armed forces and you’re planning a military move with your family to a new base, you know how important sufficient planning is to the success of the transition. You may find that using moving pods storage is the most convenient way to organize your possessions and get them delivered to your final destination safely and quickly.

When hiring a moving company to transport these pods, it’s possible that you can get a better deal if you give the movers more options for a potential move date, particularly if you are willing to move in the middle of the week or month. No matter which company you decide on, the movers are responsible for covering your items under liability insurance. In order to make the best possible decision on which business is best, you may want to use an online calculator to accurately assess the costs of a long distance move, from pods moving to the mileage accrued by the moving truck.

As for a couple of helpful tips to make your military move as stress free as possible, it makes sense to put important items that you’ll need right away, such as phone chargers, clothes, and a coffee maker, in a “survival box” that you can pack last so you can easily access it as soon as you arrive at your new home. Along the same lines, you might want to have each person in your family pack a personal bag or suitcase to bring with them in the car ride, so that they can easily get to the items they might need before the trip is over.
