We would like to welcome you to Eielson AFB 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 Eielson AFB with Furniture
Personnel moving to Eielson AFB on an accompanied tour (with family members on orders) are authorized to ship their full weight allowance. This is called Full-JFTR (Joint Federal Travel Regulation). Your PCS orders should list this entitlement.
If you are single or plan to move to Eielson AFB without your family (unaccompanied tour) and are authorized to reside off base, the full weight allowance also applies. If you will be serving an unaccompanied tour and are E-1 through E-4, please contact Dormitory Management at (907)-377-2727 to determine if you will be required to reside in the dormitories.
Knowing that you are entitled to Full-JFTR 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. 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.
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 locations.
Members will be given a briefing by the HMO about their entitlements and how to set up delivery of temporary and permanent furnishings upon arrival.
Major appliances, refrigerator, stove and dishwasher, are permanently assigned to each on-basing home. However, there are no major appliances available for loan. Please plan accordingly as you prepare to ship your households goods.
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.
Additional information will be provided by the Housing Management Office upon securing housing.
