Since the reg change you get less then a $1 a pound for your move. From what I heard people barely break even anymore. In my opinion, its not worth it.
I've done all 3 types of move (DMO, PPM and Partial PPM). You couldn't pay me enough to pack and move my own crap anymore. Nowadays people barely if at all break even.
I hate packing and I buy solid wood furniture, someone else can move that shit. LOL.
I've never done a DITY, not even a partial one, but I know a few people who have. Those who did not have children thought they were just okay, those with kids all said it was absolutely not worth the hassle.
We reciently did a partial DITY move. Still duno if we will even get money back because we were close to 100lbs over what we estimated taking in our car. I loved having the packers bring everything else though. One less stressor.
barely get paid enough to cover it all. To me totally not worth adding on the stress there already is with a PCS
I don't know when regs changed but in 2008 I belive we broke even for a DITY.
