furnishings management

Welcome to Ankara Support Facility FMS. We hope your tour will be enjoyable and we are eager to deliver and set up all the furniture you will need during your time here. The furniture and appliances at this location have been specifically chosen to fit comfortably in each type of housing unit available in the community.

Planning Your Move to Ankara Support Facility with Furniture 

Personnel moving to the Ankara Support Facility on an accompanied tour (with family members on orders) are authorized to ship their full weight allowance. This is called Full-JTR (Joint Travel Regulation). If you are single or plan to move to Ankara Support Facility without your family (unaccompanied tour) and are authorized to reside off base, the full weight allowance also applies.

Knowing that you are entitled to Full-JTR is very important. With this entitlement, government furniture support is on a loaner basis only. The government is responsible for providing you with sufficient furniture items to allow you to move into housing while waiting for your furniture (household goods). Loaner kits consist of living room, dining room, and bedroom furniture. When you are ready to move again, the same loaner kits are available to allow you to ship your household goods in plenty of time to meet you at your next destination. Since you will be living on the economy, FMS will provide appliances, wardrobes (closets) for your entire tour.

Members will be issued authorized furnishings to meet local housing conditions and family composition. While every attempt is made to meet a member's preference, furnishing style and color are not always guaranteed. Furnishings are issued based on what is available in the warehouse at the time the request is processed. 

Closet Space
In Ankara very few apartments/houses have built in closets therefore FMS will issue two wardrobes for each adult and child over the age of 8. 

Major Appliances
Military and DoD civilians may NOT ship personally owned major appliances such as refrigerators, ranges, washers, dryers, and microwaves. In most cases, major appliances from the U.S. will not work in overseas locations. These appliances are provided by FMS.

Housing styles and sizes vary in foreign locations. In some cases, not all of a member's personal furniture will fit inside the housing unit. Members should review the room dimensions for each housing unit they may be interested in to decide which personal furniture will fit prior to shipping all household goods. Please note that temporary storage facilities may not be available in all foreign locations. HMO will brief members about their entitlements and how to set up delivery of temporary and permanent furnishings upon arrival. 

Temporary Furniture Loaner Kits
Temporary furniture loaner kits are available to members in PCS status for up to 90 days after arrival and 90 days prior to departure. Loaner kits consist of furniture items that enable you to live comfortably in your new housing while awaiting the delivery of household goods and after shipping your household goods upon departure. The FMS representative will provide additional information when you secure housing.
