Why Choose a DITY Move?
The government typically contracts with commercial carriers to pack, load, ship and unload the household goods of military members with official orders to move, such as for permanent change of station (PCS) and temporary duty (TDY) assignments. If you have an upcoming military relocation, you may have the option to choose a DITY move (also known as a Personally Procured Transportation move)—and pocket a monetary incentive from Uncle Sam!
Basically, you can receive up to 95% of what it would have cost the government to move your household goods (the Government Constructive Cost) if you handle your move yourself. And if your actual moving expenses turn out to be less than the government’s payment, you usually can keep the difference.
Since individual situations vary, check first with your base transportation office to verify your eligibility for a DITY move and learn more about the government’s regulations and required documentation.
