Military Relocation to San Antonio

PCS Move to San Antonio Moving Checklist 3 Weeks Before the Move

Do the following tasks three weeks before you move:

Tasks Done
Call your military pay office to recertify Basic Allowance for Quarters (BAQ) and get a sign-off on your PCS if you are an active duty service member.
Verify packing, pick-up, and delivery dates with mover.
Check the expiration date of your military ID card and update it, if needed.
Inform your credit card companies of your new address.
Inform your stockbroker or investment counselor of your new or temporary address.
Make arrangements for credit references and be sure to transfer bank accounts and your safe deposit box.
Settle any outstanding bills.
Cancel all local deliveries and services and confirm your new address with US Postal Service.
If you have loaned out items, retrieve them the soonest time possible.
Plan menus based from what you have remaining in the freezer and cabinets.
Ensure that old TSP markings and stickers have been removed from furniture and boxes.
Reconfirm moving dates if you are using the Personal Property Shipping Office (PPSO).
Have drapes and carpets cleaned. Never leave in plastic wrappers.
Start cleaning up your current home.
Clean out your attic, crawl space, or similar storage area within your current home.
Renew and pick up any necessary prescriptions. Get prescription slips in case you need refills while traveling. Pack your medicine in leakproof, spill proof containers.
If you are an active service member making use of military weight allowances, separate your professional books, papers and equipment (PBP&E) because they will be weighed and listed separately on your shipping inventory. Inform the packers that these are your professional items — their weight will not be counted into your weight allowance.
