For some things, however, such as moving their families, many could use some advice, such as these helpful suggestions: Before You Move • The first thing t6 do is to make an ap- pointment with the military base prop- erty transportation office to schedule your move. • Next, tell the base landlord or housing office of your dates and plans. • Figure out what size truck you'll need and reserve it. • Get boxes and other packing supplies. • Pack out-of-season and nonessential items early. • Donate unwanted items to charity or hold a garage sale. • Determine what you'll do about any pets you may have. • Copy all your medical records, birth certificates and so on. Store them all in one safe place. • Change your address with the post of- rice, banks, credit card companies and magazines. • Call service providers and utilities to schedule turn-on. • Secure moving-day help. • Pick up your truck the day before to save time on moving day. • Work with companies that understand each military branch's different rules and regulations, especially if you need to move in a hurry. For instance, Penske Truck Rental has a specialized toll-free call center at 844-4TROOPS (844-487- 6677) to assist active and veteran mem- bers of the U.S. military and their families with do-it-yourself moves. All call center associates are either veterans themselves or are related to someone who has been or is currently in active or reserve duty. When it's time to move, proper plan- ning can help it all go smoothly. The company not only has trucks at over 2,200 convenient locations, it offers a military discount of 10 percent. If you book your rental online, you'll save an additional 10 percent automatically. In addition, it's the only national truck rental company with free unlim- ited miles on one-way rentals anywhere in the country. When You Move • Finish packing, taping and labeling boxes. • Prepare major appliances and electronics. • Secure dresser drawers and appliance doors with rope and tape. • Assemble a moving-day kit, includ- hag directions, map, GPS, checkbook, credit cards, military and other IDs, eyeglasses, sunglasses, prescription drugs, flashlight, water, snacks, games for kids, and old and new house keys. • Watch your weight. A military do- it-yourself move requires that you weigh your vehicle before you load it and after. To help, Penske offers a free Certified Public Scale Locater to make finding a scale easier.
