Personally Procured Transportation (DITY-Move)

This program is available to military members and the next of kin of a deceased member. The program allows members to personally move household goods (HHG) and collect an incentive payment from the government when they have orders for permanent change of station (PCS), temporary duty (TDY), separation or retirement, or assignment to, from, or between Government quarters. A member can use rental or privately owned vehicles to move HHG instead of having the Government ship them. Members may use the program to move all or a portion of their authorized JFTR weight allowance. The personal property counselors provide members information on the methods and procedures for making the move and advises members that they may choose one of the methods stated below, either alone or in conjunction with a government arranged move. The counselor also prepares DD Form 2278 (Application for DITY Move) for members. The personal property office does not, as policy, advise members to move their property first and then complete the required documentation afterwards as this may result in forfeiture of incentive.

Privately-Owned Vehicle (POV) Personally Procured Transportation Move. Members may use their own or a borrowed POV. Members must have written permission from the vehicle owner for all POV DITY moves; the current vehicle registration is also required. An advance operating allowance is authorized when using this method.

Personally Procured Transportation Move, Using Rental Vehicles. Members may rent normal types of rental vehicles, equipment, moving aids, and packing material and the member performs all labor for the move. An advance operating allowance is authorized when using this method.

If a Service Member arranges for shipment of HHG by procuring the services directly from a carrier of choice, even if directed by a TMO, it is not considered a DITY move and no incentive payment is authorized. The Service Member will be reimbursed for only actual expenses, not to exceed what it would have cost the Government to move a like weight.
The member receives a cash incentive payment for participating in the DITY program. The origin TMO computes payment at 95 percent of what it would cost the Government to transport the HHG using the Surface Deployment and Distribution Command (SDDC) domestic personal property rate solicitation, or the local drayage contracted cost. If eligible this allowance helps defray the cost of rental vehicle, gasoline, oil, tolls, packing material, moving equipment, and other services directly related to the move. Advance payment is determined based upon estimated weight however, actual payment is based on certified weight ticket. For example, if you estimate 10,000 lbs and only move 6,000 lbs you will be a subject to excess costs.
