    Tranportation Help?

    Advertisements
    Good Morning Ladies, I had a question, not sure if its been asked before. I was talking to my cousin (who is also a military wife) and she said that the military helps you with transporting your car and some furniture to wherever your going to move for free? Of course she says there's a weight limit, is this true?

    If your are PCSing or moving for training that is longer then 20 weeks (and maybe some other stuff the military will pay to move your belongings to and from your duty stations. I think you have to be moving at least 50 miles though... idk about any other stipulations.

    Depends on the situation. Is your husband already where you are moving or are you PCSing together or is he going to training that is longer than 20 weeks?

    If he was there before you got married and you were not on his orders for that station, then no they will not (normally) pay to move you from texas to him, that will have to come out of your pocket.

    Also, they usually don't pay for cars to be transported on CONUS PCS moves.
