We would like to welcome you to JBER and hope that your tour will be enjoyable and rewarding. We are eager to deliver and
set up all the furniture you will need while your household goods are in transit.
Personnel moving to JBER 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 JBER 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 will provide 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. 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. Please see your local transportation office for your entitlements as they vary with grade.
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 move into your new housing while awaiting the delivery of household goods. Upon securing housing, additional information will be provided by the Furnishings Management Section (FMS) located in the Military Housing Office (MHO).
