HOUSEHOLD GOODS

The Traffic Management Office is the military member's go-to place for assistance with the moving process. Any member who is moving to or from Barksdale should go to TMO for help.

TMO offers customer service and provides necessary paperwork needed to have personal property shipped. TMO also helps with personal procured moves. PPM moves allow eligible members to be reimbursed by the government for moving their belongings themselves. For members who are making their first or last move, a briefing is required.

Any members who have moved duty locations before or are not separating or retiring are asked to complete self-counseling through a system called the Defense Personal Property System. Once the member’s shipment is booked, the member will be notified and a carrier will be assigned to their shipment.

When members arrive to their destination, they may have their property delivered directly to their home. For members who don’t want direct delivery to their home, they are authorized storage for up to 90 days.

To ensure household goods and property are not damaged during travel, TMO provides quality assurance inspectors.

For members who wish to ship their pets, they must ensure their pets are up-to-date on all vaccinations.

Members are responsible for all expenses related to pet shipment and must comply with carrier regulations.

For more information, contact TMO at 456-5338, or visit their office on the third floor of the Mission Support Group building at 801 Kenney Ave.
