MY HUSBAND IS SET TO GRADUATE AIT SOON. I CHECKED ONLINE AND IT STATES THE WEIGHT LIMIT FOR AN E-2 IS 8,000 LBS AS OF 2003, BUT HIS TRAVEL PERSON ON BASE SAYS THERE ARE NO MORE WEIGHT LIMITS. IT SEEMS EVERYONE IS GIVING DIFFERENT ANSWERS , ARE THEIR STILL WEIGHT LIMITS ON HHG’S?
Weight limitations on HHG’s are very much in effect. As per the Smart Move site The weight allowance for household goods that may be shipped at government expense is specified in the Joint Federal Travel Regulations (JFTR) and includes the weight of ALL household goods you ship, place in storage, or send as unaccompanied baggage. It also includes goods you already have stored at government expense. Do not be alarmed by the amount of weight as , it is more then you think. If you are concerned that you might go over your weight limit here are a few things you can do to eliminate excess:
1. A few weeks prior to a pending move began to get rid off old items or things that you have no use for .
2. You can can estimate the amount of weight by averaging each room at 1000 pounds.
