    Question Large family or lots of furniture, what was your weight at PCS?

    Advertisements
    If you have a 4 or 5 bedroom or larger house or you're a person with lots of furniture and you PCS'd what was your weight?

    Can you tell me how many rooms of furniture you had? how many beds? dressers? etc.

    We are PCSing in a few months and I need to start planning now for what I can take and what I should get rid of.

    Thanks

    Ok, I am a family of 5. 3 kids and of course DH and myself. We have always been under our weight allowance of just under 10k pounds

    We have 3 bedrooms of furniture, tons of toys, front room of stuff, kitchen, garage full of storage, etc.

    Just remember to make sure his pro-gear is packed separately so it does not count in the weight total.

    Normally a moving company can rough estimate your weight of household goods.

    We are a family of two, but lots of stuff, hundreds of books, which made up lots of the weight. No kids. We were 8000 pounds.
    However, we used a moving estimator, and it was pretty accurate. Mover's use these same tools to give you an estimate as well, just remember to add on a few hundred extra pounds, just for those things you forgot you have stored somewhere:

    Thanks for the links. I'm going to use them. We used to have over 600 books but wqe got rid of a ton of them when we moved from our 3000 sq ft house to this 1900 sq ft house.
