   Movers pack a Soldier ' s property into boxes that will be loaded into crates and sent to a temporary storage facility in O ' Fallon , Illinois . The month of May is the beginning of peak PCS season , the three - month window during summer months when many military families move to new duty stations . FORT HOOD , Texas - It’s springtime once again , which means moving boxes will be popping up like wildflowers as Soldiers and their families participate in the time - honored tradition of a military permanent change of station , or PCS , transition . While ......a permanent change of station can prove to be the most daunting part of military life , it can also be an exciting opportunity . Donny Lenore , personal property chief with the Fort Hood Transportation Office , offered some tips to relieve the stress of a PCS move , so people can focus on their next exciting opportunity . “When service members receive their orders , the first thing they should do is go to the transportation office at origin and see what services are available , ” he explained . “What most service members don’t realize is they don’t need their installation clearing papers to setup transportation services . ” Lenore said , Soldiers and families should visit Military OneSource at https://www . militaryonesource . mil/moving - housing/moving/pcs - and - military - moves to familiarize themselves with the transportation process . He advises families to write down any questions they may have so they can ask them when they visit the transportation office . Lenore provided a list of steps families should take when preparing for the transportation process . • Visit Military OneSource , www . militaryonesource . mil , to review personal property pack sheets and watch moving videos . • Register for a Defense Personal Property System account and determine what type of shipment you want: personal procured move ( previously referred to as a DITY ) , household goods move , non - temp storage or unaccompanied baggage . • Complete the personal property shipment application in DPS and submit electronically . • After submitting your application , you will receive an automated email from DPS providing you details on what will happen next , what to expect and who to contact if you have questions . • If this is your first PCS , Lenore highly encourages attending the first timers brief . Retirees or those separating from the military must attend a separation brief which is mandated by HQDA G - 4 . • A counselor will review your shipment and contact you if they have any questions • Once your shipment has been booked , a transportation service provider will contact you to discuss a date and time to conduct a pre - survey and household goods pick - up . Affording the transportation office more time to fulfill a pick - up request would be beneficial , with at least 30 - 45 days in advance . The Army has a 7 - day - spread window policy , which allows the TSP and customer to negotiate their pick - up date . “‘Spread dates’ refers to the 7 - day window you request your moving company to pick up your shipment . This policy is designed to give you more control over requesting a specific date range to schedule your move . Your 7 - day window is calculated from the ‘latest pickup date’ you request in DPS . If your latest pickup date is April 20 , your 7 - day window will be from April 14 - 20 . Once you enter your latest pickup date , DPS will automatically enter the ‘earliest pickup date’ field accordingly , ” Lenore explained . “You also will enter your ‘desired pickup date , ’ which can be any date between your earliest and latest date . The assigned moving company will do their best to accommodate your request , but have the option to choose any date within your 7 - day window . ” Families also have the option of conducting a PPM , which means that the customers will move themselves and be reimbursed by the government after arriving at their next duty station . While a PPM seems simple enough , it requires a lot of work , specific paperwork along with extra steps to receive a full reimbursement . To help Soldiers and families choose the option that is best for them , Lenore urges them to attend the PCS briefings offered by the transportation office . Separation and retirement briefings are held Tuesday , Wednesday and Thursday at 2 p . m . First time PCS briefings are held each Monday at 1 p . m . PPM briefings are held Monday , Tuesday , Wednesday and Thursday at 8 a . m . Claims briefings are held on the first Friday of each month at 2 p . m . All briefings are held at the Copeland Center , Bldg . 18010 . For more information about the services offered by the Fort Hood transportation office , call ( 254 ) 287 - 2200 .
