Home / Military Moving

Military relocation, also known as a Permanent Change of Station (PCS) in the United States armed forces, is the process of moving military service members and their families from one duty station to another. This relocation can occur for various reasons, including:

  1. Change of Duty Assignment: Military personnel are often reassigned to different duty stations as part of their career progression or to fulfill the needs of the military.
  2. Deployment: Service members may be deployed to a different location or theater of operations, requiring them to relocate temporarily.
  3. Base Closure or Realignment: Military bases may be closed or realigned, necessitating the relocation of personnel and their families to new bases.
  4. Training: Service members may be sent to attend specialized training or schools at different locations.
  5. Retirement or Separation: When military personnel retire or separate from the service, they may choose to relocate to a new area.

Military relocations can be challenging due to the frequency of moves and the need to adapt to new environments. Nationwide Van Lines has entered this field to help, assist and make this tough time a smooth and easy transaction.
