INTERSTATE MILITARY HOUSEHOLD GOODS
Interstate relocations in the military can either be via a moving van with the packed and wrapped property loaded aboard loose, or via a freight truck with the property crated in wooden containers like they would be for an international move.
Loose via Moving Van
Central Van Lines arranges packing by a local moving company, who then loads directly onto a moving van for transport directly to your new home. This mode of transport is known as "Code D" and is by far the most common method for moving Household Goods within the lower 48 states.
*See note at bottom of page re: Code D.
Crated via Freight Carrier
Central Van Lines arranges packing by a local moving company, who loads the property into crates which are taken back to their warehouse. We then contract a freight carrier to move the crates to a moving company local to the destination. Delivery to residence is then scheduled from the destination warehouse. This mode of transport is known as "Code 2" and is less common within the lower 48, but quite common when moving between the lower 48 and Alaska.
*A shipment tendered by the government to Central Van Lines as "Code D" may be crated like a Code 2. The government allows this as an option. This differs from a "Code 2" tendered shipment, which must be crated.
