Convenient Military Moving Containers in Austin, TX
Save More of Your PPM Dollars with Our Portable Moving Containers
Are you preparing for a military move to Austin, TX? If it's your first time relocating due to military orders, you may find the available options overwhelming. Ensuring a secure and smooth transition for your family and belongings from "Point A" to "Point B" is crucial during these changes. Our moving containers at Go Mini's of Austin, TX offer you secure, affordable, and flexible storage and moving solutions for your military relocation.
At Go Mini's of Austin, TX, we deeply value military service and understand the challenges that come with PCS (Permanent Change of Station) migrations. Our goal is to make your experience as easy as possible.
You Have Options
If your new duty station is 50 miles or more from your previous one or if you are assigned to a location for more than 20 weeks, you'll undergo a PCS as a service member. The government assists with your move and related expenses because it's required.
Despite the possibility of relocation, you still have options for packing and transporting your belongings:
- Household Goods Move (HHG) – A HHG move is government contracted, utilizing a Transportation Service Provider (TSP) to pack and transport your belongings.
- Personally Procured Move (PPM) – Also known as a "Do It Yourself" move, where you pack and transfer your belongings yourself. Through a PPM, the government covers all the expense of hiring a moving firm, allowing you to keep any money not used for the move. Choosing Go Mini's of Austin, TX is a smart idea because you can end up with more money from your military moving allowance!
