PCS Question Re TMO


My husband has (accompanied) orders to PCS from TX to CA next month. At this time, it could take a few months up to a year before our daughter and I can join him, so we will not be moving any of our household items. Do you know how long after my husband's report date to his new duty station will TMO will authorize/pay for the move of our household? We do not want to be separated very long and want to utilize TMOs service. 

Thank you.


You can always call the TMO office and ask, but here is what I found out when I looked online at (from the TMO office at MCAS Cherry Point)....

The paragraph below says you can move it anytime after you receive the orders....good luck!




When to Make Arrangements

If on active duty, you may ship personal property anytime after receipt of permanent

change of station orders. Contact the transportation office early to increase the chances

of having your HHG moved on the date you want. Pack dates are usually a day or two

before the actual pick up date of your shipment. Pack dates can and do vary. However to

ensure a smooth move, the TSP or their representative will coordinate the pack dates with

you during the pre-move survey process. Delaying the call or visit can create hardships

for everyone.
