Military moves are already stressful, without having to worry about affording it. DITY (Do It Yourself) moves can be a cost efficient alternative to make your next military move. This kind of move allows the government to reimburse you of the cost of your move. Since, the program is voluntary, you can use only a portion of it, or all of it .

However, there are some restrictions and regulations in order to prevent fraud and scams. Your military family center at the duty relocation offers a Relocation Assistance Program (RAP) that provides information on moving to all military families.

These DITY move regulations include specific authorized methods, like personally owned vehicles, privately owned trailers, hiring a commercial moving company, shipment via parcel post and “you load, they drive” services, as well.

However, they can be very cost effective, which is always something to take into consideration since research has shown that military families on average move once every three years. Making a DITY move also earns you 25,000 dollars of insurance coverage.

Once people finish making their Dity moves, you have about 45 days to submit the claim for full payment of your DITY move.

Have any readers used this program? What did you think about the DITY move regulations? Were the DITY move regulations reasonable? Were the DITY move regulations unreasonable? Please share your thoughts and opinions in the comments.

    I thought that the DITY regulations were fair because they were a way to prevent people from scamming the military.

    I hated having to work under the DITY regulations so I only did a partial DITY move. I thought that that was way easier.
