Why You Need a Military Relocation Expert


posted Jul 01, 2011

When military orders come down range, you may find yourself faced with the prospect of moving to a neighborhood, town or city that you are unfamiliar with. Often, there is family to consider and many different needs to meet. When orders are received with short notice, there is often not enough time to make all the necessary arrangements for the relocation. In this situation, the services of a military relocation expert are invaluable.

After you register at, you will be assigned your own Personal Relocation Specialist, who will assist you with all aspects of your move. Every single concern, issue or question will be addressed, no matter how small. Of course, you and your family will have some unique circumstances, but most people have some things in common, like needing to find a new home, insurance, Internet, and utility hook-ups. Military members with children will need to know where the local schools are, and what statistics they have in the local community. Another priority for many is healthcare: where are the local dentists and orthodontists and are they military-friendly? Traveling to and from base is another common concern. A military relocation expert can discuss alternative routes and estimated commuting time with you.

You may want to rent a property or obtain a mortgage on your own home. Your personal relocation specialist can help you take advantage of the financial help that may be available, and guide you through the administrative process.
