Preparation for the upcoming peak moving season for service members has begun. Here are several moving tips: (1) use diligent planning, attention to detail and be flexible; (2) once you get orders, immediately start your moving process for a better chance to lock in your preferred pick-up and delivery dates; (3) Create a personal move calendar; (4) ask questions early; (5) keep your phone number and e-mail address up-to-date so that you can be contacted if changes arise with your shipment; (6) pack, pick-up and delivery dates are normally scheduled on weekdays; and (7) when possible, do not ship small, extremely valuable items. Customers using the Move.mil portal for the first time will find online training videos and presentations explaining how to navigate through the move process. Answers to many questions can be found on the website under "FAQs". Also, members can contact the System Response Center help desk at (800) 462-2176 or 618-220-SDDC or send an email message to firstname.lastname@example.org if they need additional help.
