    Confused weight allowance for moving!

    Advertisements
    The dh and I will be moving next month! He gets his orders next week and he is plannin on goin to the TMO to set up a move! But, my question is how much stuff can we take? There is a weight allowance depending on rank, right? He is getting ready to get promoted, but not before we move, so he will still be an E-1 with only me as his dependent! Any help would be wonderful!! Thanks

    We are e5 and were allotted 9000, I would say around 7000

    According to this website http://afmove.hq.af.mil/default.asp it is 8,000 lbs.

    Specific location where it says that: http://afmove.hq.af.mil/docs/Air%20F...ril%202008.pdf

    You could always call TMO to verify.

    Make sure that his uniforms, books, etc. are packed separately and marked PRO GEAR. Professional items do not count towards this weight allowance.

    also a new rule went into effect last month- spouses can also have 500 lbs of pro- gear- there are limits to what is considered pro-gear and if you need it I can cut and paste it for you.

    LOL no problem really:

    here it is:

    PROFESSIONAL BOOKS, PAPERS, AND EQUIPMENT (PBP&E) FOR A MEMBER’S DEPENDENT
    SPOUSE.
    (Also called PRO or PRO-Gear). (NOT APPLICABLE TO AN EMPLOYEE’S DEPENDENT
    SPOUSE)
    . HHG in a spouse's possession needed for the member’s spouse employment or community support
    activities at the next or a later destination. The following items are PBP&E:
    1. Reference material,
    2 Instruments, tools, and equipment peculiar to technicians, mechanics, and members of the professions;
    3. Specialized clothing such as diving suit, flying suits and helmets, band uniforms, nurse uniforms, chaplains'
    vestments, and other specialized apparel not normal or usual uniform or clothing; and
    4. Personal computers and accompanying equipment used for business or community support activities (i.e.,
    CPU, monitor, keyboard, mouse, 1 printer, 1 set of small computer speakers).


    NOTE: Excluded from PBP&E are commercial products for sale/resale used in conducting business, sports
    equipment, and office, household, or shop fixtures or furniture (such as bookcases, study/computer desks, file
    cabinets, and racks) of any kind even though used ICW the PBP&E
