PCS Move

I was wondering if someone could help me real quick concerning PCS move. This will be my first move. I will be going from Reserves to AR and moving from Indiana to CA. Im driving my POV loaded with my personal goods which is authorized in my orders but I am wanting to get my motorcycle out there with me as well. My career planner said that TMO will move it for me but I cant find a POC for them.

Any suggestions or know someone who I can talk to?

Get a Uhaul truck big enough for the bike and a trailer for the goat. File for a DITY move. I did it from GA to KS and did it exactly how you are supossed to and didn't add weight like people told me to. especially with the bike in the truck you will have more than enough weight. It cost me like $1200 out of pocket and they paid me around $3500. Well worth it.

You need to talk to your loosing base TMO office. They can give you the info your looking for. A lot of how much weight what you can and can't ship depends on rank and weather or not you have dependents. The key is talking to the TMO office that way you get accurate info from the folks who approve those vouchers.

It's been my experience (2nd hand as I don't own a bike) that when they come to pack up the stuff in your quarters, you're supposed to just add the bike in with that. Talking to a few friends with bikes, there's no pre-emptive notification. The moving companies are supposed to come prepared for that. This is how most soldiers are able to get their bikes overseas as well as a car/truck, even though you're only alloted one vehicle shipped (Rank permitting of course).

When I did my move from MI to CA, I looked real close at the household goods and I saw that you can ship a motorcycle in your HHG as long as the fuel is removed. It saves the DITY portion and the hassle of you doing it as well.

Drawback is that you then expect the "movers" to handle your bike with enough care...

Go to your transportation office to set up your move. Doing it your self or having them do it you will get all the information you need from them. Your bike is moved as a household item, which will count towards your total lbs allowed. I had the Army move mine 3 times and never had an issue with them. Like he said above, all fuel needs to be removed.

After more than enough moves (and helping others), I've decided that the Navy can pay someone to pack/move/unpack for me. I've done it twice now, and i'll never pack boxes again!
