SargesList is aiming to help military and their families navigate Permanent Change of Station (PCS) moves with their new, free Ultimate PCS Guide.
Frequently moving, uprooting and quickly readapting are among the challenges military and their families face. Systems and processes for moving often change within each branch, and while the military offers informational training, it can be overwhelming to map out the myriad of details for a PCS.
Expenses can easily get out of hand during the PCS process. Often times, due to inadequate planning or unforeseen circumstances, these moves can result in personal financial losses. The guide aims to prevent unnecessary hardship by detailing a variety of time-tested strategies developed by military, veterans and their spouses.
"I'm on my third PCS this summer. Many things change and with time and distance between the last move, it will really help to have a guide with updated information that will help me not miss a beat," said B. Adams, Army Spouse moving from Presidio of Monterey to Fort Bragg, NC.
The guide, which is 50+ pages long, is designed to support a family through all aspects of a PCS. It provides step-by-step instructions, chronological information, current financial entitlements, checklists, PCS acronyms, worksheets and tips for budgeting, planning and executing a successful move. Readers will also find easy, clear instructions on navigating the government's DPS military move system that was implemented last year. Additionally, the guide includes tips on house-hunting, road trips and even pet relocation.
“Our seven part PCS Chronicles blog series was so popular and we kept hearing the same questions over and over, so we decided to publish a guide to help the new to military and veteran PCSer. We didn’t see any other guides out there, so we decided this was a perfect opportunity to help our fellow armed forces,” says Lisa Klinkhammer, CEO of SargesList.
Currently, the guide can be downloaded free at http://pcsguide.SargesList.com.
In addition to the guide, SargesList provides free listings/ads for housing, hundreds of thousands of jobs, a place to buy and sell items, vehicles, promote their businesses and get connected with others, which help families quickly adjust to their new surroundings and thrive at their new duty station.
Launched in early 2011, SargesList is a Veteran-owned company that provides free trusted classifieds and local base information for military communities to buy, sell, trade and connect at over 500 installations around the world. SargesList is a one stop portal for military communities to buy and sell household goods, vehicles, homes for sale, find employment, local services and area information. The site was built by the team that developed and maintains the Automated Housing Referral Network (AHRN.com). Unlike other classified sites, it provides military families with a more trusted interaction for users who register with their DOT MIL email. This helps users identify who is in their Department of Defense network.
