Save money on your military move 

Are you a member of the military wanting to save money on your personally procured move (PPM)? The good news is that many movers offer discounts to active-duty military and veterans to help lower the costs. Let’s compare the coupons from several popular companies so you can make the best choice for your DITY move.

Military moving truck discounts

We looked at three truck rental companies to see what they offer for service members. While U-Haul® doesn’t specify a military discount on their website, Budget® and Penske® offered the following coupons for moving trucks at the time of posting:

  • Budget: 20% off truck rental for U.S. Military personnel traveling with orders with the code USMIO.  
  • Penske: 15% discount to active and veteran military personnel with the code MILITARY

Keep in mind that these coupons are subject to change at any time and only reduce the truck rental rate. Other expenses like fees, liability coverage and fuel are not discounted. 

Other DIY movers that offer military coupons 

There are other options for DIY movers that offer military discounts if you don’t want to drive a rental truck. PODS® offers a 10% discount on moves for service members with the code SERV10.  

U-Pack® is another option for DIY military moves with a bit more flexibility since you can adjust the space you use in a moving trailer or have any unused ReloCube® moving containers picked up at no cost. Active-duty military can use the code DITY10 for $100 off their move. Veterans can use the code MIL50 for a $50 discount. U-Pack customers can automatically save an additional $25 by reserving their move online. 

Take advantage of more military discounts for moving expenses 

Discounts with your mover aren’t the only way to save! Look for hotels or restaurants that offer military discounts as you travel.  

To save even more money, consider purchasing packing supplies from businesses that offer military discounts like:
