FURNISHINGS MANAGEMENT

We would like to welcome you to Bellows Air Force Station and hope that your tour will be enjoyable and rewarding. Furnishing information is provided below. 

Planning Your Move to Bellows Air Force Station with Furniture 

Entitlements 
Personnel moving to the Bellows Air Force Station 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 Bellows Air Force Station 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. Members will be issued authorized furnishings to meet local housing conditions and family composition. 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.

Closet Space
In privatized housing, contact Hickam Communities at (808) 423-2300 or on their website at www.hickamcommunities.com for information about their floor plans, storage and closet space available in their homes. In unaccompanied housing at Bellows, the closet space in each room is approximately 20 square feet.

Storage
In some cases, not all of a member's personal furniture will fit inside on-base housing units. Contact the HMO for information about non-temporary furniture storage authorizations. 

Major Appliances 
Military and DoD civilian's are NOT authorized to ship personally owned major appliances such as refrigerators, ranges, washers and dryers. These appliances are provided by Hickam Communities in privatized homes and by the government in unaccompanied housing.

Temporary Furniture Loaner Kits
Temporary furniture loaner kits are available to members in PCS status for up to 90 days after arrival and 60 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 Furnishings Management Office upon securing housing.

Government Furniture Delivery 
The Furnishings Management Office (FMO) and Transportation Management Office work together to coordinate the delivery and pick-up of each member's government and personal household goods. Members are authorized a one-time delivery and pick-up of government furnishings. Members can also pick-up or turn in extra items as long as authorization is not exceeded. Members must be present at the scheduled date and time of delivery or pick-up. Customers who miss appointments without prior approval will be rescheduled at the convenience of the FMO and be charged a no-show fee. Appointments will be scheduled at the earliest date possible. For additional information please contact the base FMO at (808) 448-0300.
