    Question Which do you prefer?

    Advertisements
    Maybe some of you have done both...

    Done a PCS move by yourselves or had the military move you.

    Which do you prefer better?

    Dh came home after PT today and now wants to do it ourselves...he says every told them the army pays you alot more then you spent on a DITY move.

    So poll to follow as well

    I prefer military moves. I HATE packing. It's bad enough that I have to unpack and put everything away. I prefer to let them handle it and save myself the insanity.

    We have FAR too much to even consider a DITY move. . .other than a partial, where I bring things like my china and crystal and silver on my own. Because I just don't trust the movers with the irreplaceable stuff!

    We did a partial DITY but next time we'll probably do a full DITY. We made a lot of money doing a partial.

    Depends on how far,etc. A few states over, DITY is fine. You do make money usually. But it can be a major PITA too!!

    We've done both but once we had kids and were moving cross country, it's just easier to let them do it. Plus we've done 2 OCONUS moves so they did it for us. (one to Italy and one to Hawaii, both from the East coast)

    Embrace those who love you and whom you love, and rid yourself of those who will only bring you down!
