Moving to Fort Hood?
If Fort Hood is the place you’re soon to call home, you’re in good company; it is the second largest active duty Army post in the US, with approximately 52,000 uniformed personnel (behind only Fort Bragg). And with a nickname like The Great Place—due to the excellent quality of life the area offers soldiers and their families—making Fort Hood your home is sure to be an exciting adventure! In fact, when you speak with current and former Fort Hood residents, you’ll often hear statements like “I love it here!” and “We just got stationed at Fort Hood, and are so happy!”

Things to do in and around Fort Hood
Located just outside of Kileen, TX, and halfway between Austin and Waco (about 60 miles frome each), there really is something for everyone here. The base itself offers activities at The Belton Lake Outdoor Recreation Area; an 89 acre recreational facility situated around Belton Lake. There you can camp, boat, mountain bike, play paintball, picknic, swim and more. Fort Hood also offers opportunities for fishing, golfing, bowling, movies, arts & crafts, skating, and fitness. And without a doubt, if you’re stationed at Fort Hood on July 4th, don’t miss the annual Independence Day celebration—it’s one of the largest fireworks displays in the country, and it’s open to the public. When you get to Fort Hood, make certain to visit the MWR for more information about things you can do to make the area feel more like home. Just keep in mind that Fort Hood offers warm winters and hot summers—you’ll likely need more warm weather clothing than cold weather gear.

Moving to Fort Hood – PPM
If you’re trying to save money on your move to Fort Hood by doing a Personally Procured Move (PPM), ABF U-Pack is the service more and more Fort Hood families recommend. Here’s how it works:

  • ABF U-Pack brings an empty moving truck or moving container to your location.
  • You load.
  • ABF U-Pack delivers right to your door at your new Fort Hood home.
  • You unload.

Simiply pay based on the linear footage your shipment occupies in the moving trailer, or the number of ReloCubes you need; all fuel, taxes and the driver are included in your price. And if the cost of your move is less than your PPM allowance, you get to pocket the rest. When you consider that U-Pack prices compare to truck rental, it’s a win, win. You don’t have to drive an unfamiliar rental truck cross country, and you save money!

At your request, U-Pack will gladly provide weight tickets. Storage is available too, just relay your needs to a U-Pack military moving expert.
