    no- and remember reimbursement will only be for the actual wieght moved- not to exceed you allowable weight allowance for rank and with or without dependants

    remember to tell them that they need to weigh the truck empty and full=

    find out if the weight will include packing material - ( this can add an extra 10% to the total weight)

    also make sure you pay for the replacement value insurance

    also since this is considered a PPM ( personal procured move) the military will not get involved if anything goes wrong with the contract between you and the movers.

    Dont have any recommendations, but why dont you just let the military (navy in your case) do it. All they do is contract a civilian moving company anyway, So there really isnt a difference. They all pretty much do it the same way. Thats just my opinion.

    We used private movers too...We got our stuff asap and had nothing missing...

    It was easy just have the truck weighed b4 and after...You need original ticket not a copy.

    I would just call around and see who you like

    i would personally go with private movers and get reembursed too. in addition to the above tips, i would make sure that you are there the whole time they are packing and unpacking. some will take advantage! also, i would personally pack all my stuff myself with my own packing materials b/c most companies charge like crazy just for bubble wrap and boxes.
