If you’re in the military, you know you could be deployed to a different base at a moment’s notice. As such, you need to be vigilant at all times and be in a constant state of readiness to pack up and go. This can be difficult with a family in tow, but a good plan and some reliable out of state movers will help ease any transition. Here are some tips to integrate with your daily life to ensure moves won’t take too long.
Keep receipts for everything related to your military moving, even well after the movers have brought everything into your new home. Many costs, including gas and supplies along the way, may be reimbursed by the military. Don’t expect to have to pay for everything until you’ve been told otherwise.
Make sure your kids understand you might have to move very quickly. Of course, you don’t want them to avoid making friends or enjoying themselves. However, preparing them for the fact you might be deployed elsewhere is kinder than avoiding the issue and springing it on them at the last minute.
Maintain a storage space somewhere you trust. There are some items, such as family heirlooms or memorabilia you probably don’t want to have with you until you’re much more settled. Keep them at a family member’s house or in a storage facility near a good friend or relative who is less prone to moving than you are.
While his team is looking for a new stadium, Matt Silverman, president of the Tampa Bay Rays, has found a new home for himself. The Tampa Bay Times recently reported that the baseball executive paid $1.5 million for a mansion in St. Petersburg, Florida.
The news source reports that the property bears similarities to traditional Italian villas. The house is only minutes away from the team’s home stadium, which is a probable indicator that the Rays will be staying in Florida. In February, the Chicago Tribune speculated that the team may be moving out of state to find a larger fanbase.
