Moving Checklist for Military Families

On average, a military family moves or receives a Permanent Change of Station (PCS), every two to three years. And while it may be a familiar process, the logistics of a move can still be daunting.

Penske’s Military Call Center, which assists active military, veterans and their families through Personally Procured Moves (PPM), or “do-it-yourself’ (DIY) moves, offers these tips to for an easier transition.

Reimburse Your Receipts

PPMs can be a cost efficient option for military members, and expenses like tolls or packing materials can be reimbursed. Just remember to save and submit your receipts.

Call 1-844-4TROOPS

Penske’s dedicated military call center is on hand to assist with PPM needs. In addition to receiving specialized training to assist military members through this process, every call center associate has a military connection: as a veteran or with a family member who is active duty, a reservist or a veteran. You can reach the call center via this toll-free number: 1-844-4TROOPS (1-844-487-6677).
