How was your recent PCS?

Disaster or delightful?

Nightmarish or Whew! We’re just glad it’s over?


Whether you are still reeling from the hit your furniture took or pleasantly surprised that you finally had a smooth move, your fellow military families need to hear from you. Write a review of your Moving Company for the entire community to see. If the packers and movers exceeded your expectations, sing their praises. If you had the move from hell, tell us about that too. Submitting a review on is easy, quick and can possibly help military families everywhere avoid some of the pitfalls that come with PCSing.

We know moving can be stressful. It is disappointing when those we trust with our precious possessions don’t step up for the task. Our goal at PCSgrades is to provide a platform for the military and veteran community to share information through trusted reviews. Having a viable, thriving database of the moving experiences of military families has the potential to change the PCS process in the future. But we need your help! We need your reviews of housing, neighborhoods, REALTORS®, Moving Companies etc. Together, we can truly make a difference!
