It’s moving day and you’re putting your precious household goods --- family heirlooms, delicate collectibles and expensive antiques --- into the hands of strangers for wrapping and loading into a truck.

As you watch the movers scurry through your home, you wonder if your beautiful crystal chandelier will end up in shattered pieces during the journey to your new destination.

Stressful and worrisome? Yes, extremely.  Feeling relieved because someone else besides you is doing the packing and heavy lifting? No, not really.

Moving is an adventure that can turn out all right or all wrong. Stars and Stripes’ On the Move page aims to help ease the stress of moving by offering an extensive collection of resources available to servicemembers and offering tips on how to make your move a positive experience for mom, dad, kids and even pets.
