Military DITY Moves are now Personal Procured Moves (PPM)

March 27, 2010

The Personally Procured Move Program is designed to provide you an alternative to move your household goods (HHG). You may move your HHG yourself using rental equipment / POV or by hiring a commercial mover.  Under this program you can receive reimbursement up to 100% of the Government Constructive Cost (GCC) or an incentive payment of 95% of the GCC. An advance operating allowance can be authorized to defray out of pocket moving expense (rental equipment, HHG mover charges, packing material, etc.).

The Government Constructed Cost (GCC) is defined as the amount it would have cost the government to move your personal property during a government procured move up to but not exceeding your authorized weight allowance. Your GCC during initial counseling will be based on an estimated weight of your household goods, so be careful not to over-estimate the weight you are moving. Over-estimating may result in a lower reimbursement or incentive payment. To help you estimate your HHG weight as accurately as possible, you can contact me. Individual situations may vary widely so prior to making a personally procured move, it is recommended that you be counseled and get approval by a personal property office. Failure to get approval from the personal property office MAY result in non-payment of your reimbursement claim or incentive payment.

Contact your local office to help you determine the most cost-effective method of moving your household goods. If you have any questions regarding the advisability of doing a personally procured move, you can ask for an estimate from myself or another company.   Before your counseling appointment, estimate your HHG total weight.  Estimates also may result in the member having to pay back money because they estimated more weight than actually shipped.

Above all else go with a reputable company.  There are many ways to check them out.  Please feel free to contact me for more information at

NOTE: Personally procured moves to overseas areas are not recommended.  Participation in the Personally Procured Move Program is voluntary. You may choose a Personally Procured Move, a Government Move, or a combination of the two methods, subject to entitlement limitations.

    I decided to utilize USA Express moving again after having moved my parents to my home from AZ to NC. They did such a great job I thought it would be a seamless process again. Unfortunately this is not the case. We have been getting the run around as to when our property will be delivered to us. We have called numerous times and several people have transferred us to voice mailboxes that are full and never allow us to speak to an actual manager. Jennifer is the most disrespectful operations manager I have ever dealt with- this is the most unreliable company I have ever had to deal with. They are not even going to honor their 21 day contract! They are holding my personal belongings an will have had them for over 2 weeks and now are adding an additional 2 weeks on to that time frame. Even when requesting to speak to the broad of directors there is no response. NEVER USE THIS COMPANY! I am military and a USAA member and will recommend this company be placed on the NO CONTACT list so that no members can utilize this company.

      Contact your local JAG office and see if they will make a freindly call for you. Sometimes it will get the ball rolling.
