DITY Move Calculator

How the Calculator Works

This DITY (Do-It-Yourself) Move Calculator helps you to estimate the amount you may be reimbursed if you choose to move your household goods on your own when relocating. Here’s how you can use it:

  1. Enter the Weight of your Household Goods in pounds.
  2. Enter the Distance of your Move in miles.
  3. Enter the Government Constructive Cost, which is the rate the government would pay per pound per mile, if they were to contract the move.
  4. Click the “Calculate” button to see the estimated reimbursement amount.

The calculator will then multiply the weight of your household goods by the distance of the move, then by the government rate to provide an estimated reimbursement amount. This amount is based on the assumption that your actual moving expenses are equal to or greater than this calculation.

Limitations of the Calculator

Please note the following limitations of this calculator:

  1. The calculations are estimates and may not reflect the exact reimbursement amount.
  2. Actual moving costs can vary and may include additional expenses that are not considered in this calculation.
  3. The Government Constructive Cost is a variable rate and can change; make sure to enter the most current rate.
  4. This calculator does not take into account any potential weight allowances or other specific terms related to your situation.

It’s always advisable to confirm the specifics of your DITY move with the relevant authorities to ensure accurate financial planning.
