    DITY weight calculator

    Advertisements
    Where do I go to find it. I went on the base website and tried to go to the link on there, but it's not working, anyone know where to find one that is working?

    I'm not sure what you mean by "weight" calculator, but this is a link to a PPM Claim Calculator. It's Navy, but the numbers are the same across the branches.

    the weight calculator lets you click on items you have to try and calculate the weight you will be moving

    From the same site...

    https://pptas.ahf.nmci.navy.mil/ppta...gInventory.pdf

    There's also an Excel spreadsheet you can download there. But, I think it's the same as this link.

    You can probably find several other versions by Googling "moving weight calculator" or something similar.

    and I just posted for you in your other thread.

    and to add from the other thread: he will need to weigh the car empty and full.
    he will need to have certified weight tix ( signed by an employee at the scales) and if he goes over his 5,000 lbs weight allowance he will not get reimbursed for anything over the 5,000 lbs.

    HTH's

    He's E5 with dependant's so it is 9,000 lbs and we are moving house to house onbase (it is not our choice to move, we have to cause they are knocking down our house) so we don't have to weigh anything, just give an estimate using the weight estimate calculator

    the 2 weights ( the stuff the movers take and the PPM) combined cannot exceed his 5,000 lb weight allowance.

    so if his stuff ( the HHG's the movers are moving) weighs 4900 lbs- he will get reimbursed for only 100 lbs of the PPM, even if it weighed 300 lbs.

    does that help?
