Click HERE to check what you are allowed to bring, your weight allowance, and estimate the weight of your HHG before you start to setup your move. Moving allowances are generally based on the overall weight of your HHG. Any overages on your approved weight will be your financial responsibility, so work hard to make sure you stay within your weight allowance.

Once you receive your orders, you should begin to plan what items you will take in your unaccompanied baggage, in your HHG shipment and what might need to go into permanent storage.
Overseas homes are not always as small as you would expect, but most do not have closets or much storage space. Consider putting large appliances in government storage since the Air Force may lend families major appliances (depending on availability) in some overseas locations.
Valuable Household Goods: If it is not listed specifically on your mover’s inventory form, it does not exist. Before packing day, create an inventory of all valuable household goods listing the item, brand, model and serial number. Ensure the moving company includes your valuable items list on their inventory forms before you sign off on the sheet.
HHG Video & Pictures: State the date in videos or show the date in photos.
Packing Day: Organize valuable items in one area and explain that all of those items must be listed on inventory sheets in order for you to sign off on your paperwork. List any damage done to your home or property during packing before signing paperwork.
TIP: Put all the items that you do not want packed up in a separate bedroom or closet.
