There are a lot of questions regarding Personally Procured Moves (PPMs). There many resources for you, to include: information, your local base TMO, and the Eglin family support center staffed with more TMO help. There is also a flowchart to help simply this process which can be tricky.

The first step is the member should perform all of the orange steps, starting with registering and completing requirements on Next the member should find storage for their goods, then plan to get transportation for your property. Of course there's moving day, and checking out of your dorm or house if you are completely moved out. On-base housing residents should contact Balfour Beatty Communities for specifics regarding that process, or check their Tyndall AFB Homes site for further information. All of the purple items are critical records for your reimbursement - receipts, weight tickets, other moving expense receipts, etc.

After you have retrieved your property you may choose to clean and dry them prior to storage - this is to prevent in storage. These expenses are not part of your PPM or storage entitlement, but you should check to see if you can claim these through your insurance or under the Personnel Claims Act or similar disaster assistance. Expenses could be cleaning supplies or professional services. Remember to fully dry all items prior to storage.

When your items are ready for storage be sure to get receipts for your storage expenses as well. To assist with the PPM portion of this move we have also attached weight allowance information, a DPS How-To guide, and a standard PPM checklist to help you navigate this process. We also have the Tyndall AFB memorandum authorizing PPM and storage of your items for your DPS files.
