Thank you for your interest in Atmosphere Movers and thank you for your service. Atmosphere Movers has moved many military families over the years. As a veteran owned and operated company, we understand and value our military clients and their needs.
For those who don’t know, a Military Member may choose his own moving company contractor and get reimbursed up to what it would have cost the government. This is not a DIY move. It is a personally procured move (PPM) where the member does not do the move themselves. The member hires a full service moving company. This is the law. It is a congressionally approved regulation (JFTR).
The Joint Federal Travel Regulation (JFTR) U5320D and 5385 D authorizes a military member to contract with their own moving company and be reimbursed up to what it would have cost the government. In other words, a military member does not have to use the Joint Personal Property Shipping Office’s (JPPSO) contracted carrier.
Furthermore, AF supplement to the JFTR authorizes a military member to contract with their own household goods moving company and be reimbursed up to what it would have cost the government. Army, Navy, Marines and Coast Guard have similar regulations.
