Alconbury Furnishings Management



We would like to welcome you to RAF Alconbury and hope that your tour will be enjoyable and rewarding. We are eager to deliver and set up all the furniture you will need for your time here. The furniture and appliances at this location have been specifically chosen to fit comfortably in each type of housing unit found on and off base.

Planning Your Move to RAF Alconbury with Furniture


Personnel moving to RAF Alconbury, Molesworth, Digby, Waddington, or Wyton 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 one of our areas of support 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 quarters 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. Whether you will be living on the economy or in government housing, Furnishings Management will provide appliances, transformers and 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 a standard provision. Furnishings are issued based on what is available in the warehouse at the time the request is processed. Please see your local transportation office for your entitlements as they vary with grade.

Members will be given a briefing by the Furnishings Management Section (FMS) Assistant about their entitlements and how to set up delivery of temporary and permanent furnishings upon arrival. FMS will require a minimum of 72 hours’ notice for deliveries and pickups.

Major Appliances

Military and DoD civilians are NOT authorized ship personally owned major appliances such as dishwashers, refrigerators, ranges, washers, and dryers. These appliances will be provided by our office. In most cases, major appliances from the U.S. will not work in overseas locations. As such, major appliances are permanently assigned to each on-base housing unit and are also available for off-base housing units. 

Temporary Furniture Loaner Kits

Temporary loaner furniture 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 move into your new housing while awaiting the delivery of household goods. Additional information will be provided by the FMS Assistant upon securing housing.

Government Furniture Delivery
Members are authorized a one-time delivery and pickup of government furnishings. Members can also pickup or turn in extra items as long as authorization is not exceeded and they accomplish this themselves. 

Members must be present at the scheduled date and time of delivery or pickup. Customers who miss appointments without prior approval will be rescheduled at the convenience of the FMS. Appointments will be scheduled at the earliest date possible. A redelivery due to a missed appointment will be recharged to the customer. For additional information please contact the MHO.

You will need to work with Transportation Management Office (TMO) to coordinate the delivery and pickup of your personal household goods.
