    Question How soon can we get packed-out?

    Advertisements
    Is it possible to get our stuff packed up and ready to move months (3-5) before we are due to PCS?

    How does that work? Will the military store our stuff or do we have to pay for a storage place?

    Worst case scenario, our orders are changed, will they move our stuff to the new duty station?

    Thx.

    I've asked dh and all I've gotten was .

    honestly i am the same. You can always call personal property and ask them. I have moved ahead but dh has stayed behind and packed us up. i think it depends on the orders.

    I know that you get up to 90-120 days of storage on the military for free, after that the storage fee is cheap like $1 a day.. we could have packed out and stored our stuff while DH was in school, but opted to stay put for those 2 months...

    Sorry I'm not more help.

    Well, I'm what I am and I'm what I'm not
    and I'm sure happy with what Iíve got
    I live to love and laugh alot
    and thatís all I need

    We packed out in January of last year because we were going to Hawaii from Virginia, and didn't get to Hawaii until April. I know for about a month they were storing it for us for free. if that helps at all...

    I think you can pack out as soon as you have hard copies. I believe you get 90 days of storage free, more if it is a conus/oconus move

    My DH orders have been ammended as of today 4 times and they still arent right. Me and the kids arent on it so its all messed up. We can't get anyone to answer the phones and he has to be in Monterey Ca on Jan 7th!!! Did I mention we are moving from KY?? No one is able to help out and since the orders are wrong the movers cant schedule to come and we have no advancement of $$$ to pay for the move. Also, due to the orders never being right I have yet to tell our landlord we are moving because we dont know what is going on, and my workplace I just got hired on full time after working here 3yrs and need to put 2 weeks notice in but when to do it...

    Because again the orders are wrong.. Shows hubby using a govt card to cover his plane ticket and that is it! No per diem pay either due to all this..

    Um, I need phone numbers but when I google to get numbers I cant find anything. I am in Kentucky...needing the Bluegrass ARmy Depot in Richmond, KY to move us.

    Where do I call to get dislocation allowance to help pay for gas, food, hotel? And to pay for the deposit for rent?

    Where are the military people to help 1st time movers like us ?????

    :-(
