Planning Your Move to Kalkar with Furniture
Entitlements The TMO Inbound Shipments office at Schinnen provides our service. You can reach them at DSN 314-360-7575 if there are any questions. Don't forget the time-zone difference between where you are and here!
All accompanied personnel are authorized to ship their full Joint Federal Travel Regulation (JFTR) weight allowance to Kalkar and a statement to that effect should be on your orders. DO NOT ship American style stoves, washers, dryers, dishwashers, freezers or refrigerators. These items will be issued. Non-temporary storage of these appliances at Kalkar is not authorized.American-style microwaves, irons, coffee makers, bread machines and other small appliances will work without any problems with transformers. However, some people choose to purchase either dual-voltage or European small appliances to reduce the clutter caused by multiple transformers.
Be sure to keep all of your personal property shipping documents with you. You will need them when you get here in order to get your property as soon as possible. If all goes as expected, you should have all your shipments and be settled within four weeks after you arrive.
