If you’ve made a move in the continental United States, or expect to make one this summer, the Defense Department has some bad news for you. Your stuff is going to be late.
There have been so many moves this summer that the Defense Department is having a tough time getting everyone’s furniture and other household goods moved in a timely fashion.
Things are so busy that the Joint Personal Property Shipping Offices might not be able to accommodate your move date, according to an Air Force press release. The entire CONUS and all military services are experiencing limited capacity for government-arranged moves in some markets and delayed deliveries out of storage in others, according to the release.
Military members and other personnel are being cautioned to have some patience and expect some delays when it comes to getting household goods from one duty station to another.
DoD is asking those families moving in the next 60 days to initiate their moves early, anticipate possible delays, be flexible in their pickup dates and consider doing a personally procured move when feasible.
