We want to provide you and your family the best possible service and keep your property out of storage-in-transit (SIT). Avoiding SIT will eliminate the possibility of damage to your property from the extra handling.
All newly assigned personnel arriving Fort Polk, expecting inbound personal property should immediately contact, either in person or telephonically, the inbound personal property section. Provide them your unit of assignment and a duty phone number, and any other phone numbers where you can be contacted when your personal property arrives. This will help preclude having to place your property in temporary storage if you already have a delivery address.
Inbound phone numbers: 531-1216 or 1226
Personnel who accomplish a Do It Yourself (DITY) move must process their packets through the personal property section. Immediate processing will expedite any DITY payments due.
Normal delivery time for personal property placed in temporary storage is 5 to 7 working days. However, during peak season (May - Sep) delivery time could be as high as 14 working days.
