When it comes to a PCS move, a service member ends up relocating to a brand new base at least 50 miles away from their current base – this relocation is from government orders. The government will pay your moving expenses since you received orders to move. While the government is paying for your moving expenses, there is a cut-off for the total weight of your items, so if your belongings are above that weight, you’ll have to pay the extra expenses. The covered weight can change throughout the years, so before your moving day, check with your base a few days before you leave so you’re aware of the situation. During this relocation, you will work with dedicated PCS movers who are government contractors, and you will often wait for a more extended period for your household goods to get delivered.
