Arranging Household Goods Shipments
As soon as you are alerted to your upcoming Permanent Change of Station (PCS) move, you can start getting your house and family ready. Clean up and get rid of junk. Hold a yard sale or take serviceable items you no longer need to a thrift shop or donate to charity. Get important family records together in one place.
If you are going overseas, you should begin to plan what items you will take in your unaccompanied baggage, in your household goods shipment, and what might need to go into permanent storage. Remember, in overseas areas, the electric current is different and houses are generally much smaller than U.S. standards and cannot handle large furniture.
Household Goods Shipping Process
The Defense Personal Property System (DPS) is the online system you will use to manage your household goods shipment. Move.mil explains this new process and provides access to DPS.
Planning for shipment of your pet includes researching airline requirements and quarantine restriction laws in your new location. You will need to check with the airlines on the requirements for size, weight, number of animals, kennel construction, documentation and season of the year limitations. Occasionally, small pets can be shipped on military flights but availability and regulations are always changing, as well as fees. Search Move.mil for general information on shipping pets.
Many international locations have strict importation laws including extended quarantines and restrictions on breeds or types of animals that can be brought into the country. Carefully research these rules as they could impact your moving schedule. Not only do overseas locations have strict rules but many locations in the United States have restrictions on certain breeds as well. Review your destination installation's Shipping Pets article for details found on the left hand tool bar on MilitaryINSTALLATIONS.
