When you arrive in the Augusta area, it is imperative that you contact the Inbound Personal Property Section to have your current information entered into the system. If you provide contact numbers, we will call you anywhere in CONUS to advise you that your shipment has arrived. If you have a residence at destination and want a direct delivery, this office must be able to contact you and make delivery arrangements with the carrier no later than 2 hours from the time the carrier offers the shipment for delivery. We cannot send a driver to your residence without confirmation that someone is home. If we cannot reach you within the 2 hour time limit, your household goods may be put into temporary storage, requiring extra and unnecessary handling of your personal property.
If you cannot take direct delivery, you can schedule your delivery for a later date or place the shipment in temporary storage for 90 days. From June through September, deliveries from storage can take from five to fifteen days after notice to the carrier. During this period agent crews and equipment availability are stretched to the maximum.
Designating an Agent
If you will not be available for the delivery of your property, you can designate an agent to act on your behalf. This individual can be your spouse, family member (over 18), a friend, co-worker, etc...If you have an emergency on the delivery day, you can designate an agent by leaving written authorization, naming the agent. The agent gives this authorization to the carrier. You may designate agents by using a Power of Attorney or Informal Letter of Authority. Also, if you leave your residence and leave the movers alone, they will stop working and you may be charged waiting time.
To schedule the delivery of your personal property we will need your delivery address and a date (weekday, non-holiday) and a copy of your orders. Deliveries are accomplished Monday through Friday, between the hours of 0800 to 1700, excluding Saturdays, Sundays, and US holidays. Specific delivery times cannot be scheduled. Property owners or their designated agent must be at the residence during those hours on the day of the delivery. If not member will be charged attempted pick-up charges. Members should not schedule a delivery on the closing date of residence.
During delivery, keep your copy of the inventory close at hand and check off each item, as it is unloaded. Compare the conditions of each article with the original inventory entry. Make a note of the inventory for each missing or damaged article and brief description of the damage. Make sure the carrier records the missing/damaged items on all copies of the inventory and DD Form 1840. If any additional damages or missing items are discovered after the carrier/agent has departed, you must record those items on the reverse side of the DD Form 1840.
Any changes or cancellation must be reported to the Inbound Personal Property 24 hours prior to delivery date. REMEMBER, once an order has been given to make a delivery and the furniture has been loaded aboard a vehicle, delivery must be accomplished or the property owner will assume charges incurred.
Unloading and Unpacking
The customer or the customer's designated agent must be at the residence when the carrier arrives. Unloading at destination includes the one-time placement of furniture and like items in the room of the dwelling or a room designated by the customer. All articles disassembled by the Transportation Service Provider or originating from non-temporary storage will be reassembled. On a one-time basis, all barrels, boxes, cartons, and/or crates will be unpacked and the contents will be placed in a room designated by the customer. The unpacking service and removal of debris will be performed to the customer's satisfaction at the time the goods are delivered to the residence unless specifically waived in writing by the customer or customer's agent. The Transportation Service Provider, agent, or contractor shall have all tools for reassembling on hand. If unpacking is waived, Transportation Service Provider is not required to pickup empty boxes at a later date.
Household goods are defined as items associated with the home and all personal effects belonging to a member and dependents on the effective date of the member's PCS or TDY orders that legally may be accepted and transported by an authorized commercial transporter.

Your weight allowance is established under provisions of the Joint Federal Travel Regulations and is the maximum weight you can move at government expense. This allowance includes the weight of household goods you ship, place in storage or send as unaccompanied baggage and goods you already have in storage. Your allowance is based on two factors; your pay-grade and whether you have dependents.
YOU - not the Transportation Officer or the carrier - are responsible for staying within your weight allowance. If the weight of items packed, shipped or stored exceeds your weight allowance, you must pay all charges connected with the excess weight.
Packing and Pick-Up Dates
The size of your household goods shipment determines how much time is needed for packing and pick-up. The following rules of thumb will give you an idea how much time should be allotted for packing your household:
|Less than 4,000 lbs||1 Day||Same Day|
|4,000 lbs to 8,000 lbs||2 Days||1 Day|
|8,000 lbs to 12,000 lbs||3 Days||1 Day|
|More than 12,000 lbs||4 Days||1 Day|
Carriers generally will not pack or pickup on holidays or weekends. During the peak moving season from June through September, available dates fill quickly, so contact the transportation office early if you are planning to move during these months.
Professional Books, Papers and Equipment
When completing your application to move, you must give the counselor an estimated weight of your professional books, papers and equipment (PBP&E) to enter on your application for shipment or storage. This constitutes an official declaration of intent to ship PBP&E. You must also separate professional items from the rest of your property so they may be packed, marked and weighed separately. When properly listed on the inventory, they are not counted as part of your weight allowance. Before signing the inventory prepared by the movers be sure these items are listed as "PBPB&E" and not as "books" or "miscellaneous". The proper designation of these items and the exclusion of the weight can be very important. Professional books, papers, and equipment do not include office, household or shop fixtures, furniture (such as bookcases, desks and file cabinets) or sports equipment.
There are three critical documents you must be sure to get copies of before the carrier departs and should hand carry with you to your destination:
- Household Goods Descriptive Inventory - This is your official record of what is being shipped. It should accurately describe the items you are shipping and the condition of each.
- DD Form 619 - This form is used for CONUS household goods shipments only. It lists the number of cartons used to pack your shipment (the number of column should be completed before you sign), the weight of professional items, additional services performed, and appliances at origin.
- Bill of Lading - This document shows you the following critical information - Bill of Lading Number used to track the shipment, required delivery date, destination, and whom to contact upon you arrival at destination.

- All Containers must have a copy of the inventory attached to each container as required by SDDC and a copy provided to Freight when requesting shipping.

Certification should be in the Technical Transportation of Hazardous Material as required by DOD Regulation 4500.9-R, chapter 204 and the Code of Federal Regulations, Transportation CFR-49.

Detention charges beginning two hours after the commercial carrier arrives for loading/unloading. The unit budget analysis will be contacted to provide the TAC for detention charges.
- When planning out-loading, the first step is to determine the equipment to be shipped. Formulate a list of equipment to include length, weight, height, cube and weight. The TB 55-46-1, standard Characteristics (Dimensions, weights and Cube) for Transportability of Military Vehicles and other outsize/overweight equipment should be checked. Equipment should be listed in reduced dimensions. However, for ISU-90, shelters or any other secondary loads the total height must be listed.
- Dimensions for motor carriers can be up to 8 feet wide and 138 inches high, ground up, before having to obtain special state highway permits. Mirrors should be folded in and antennas lowered. Anything that protrudes and can easily be damaged should be removed. Canvas must be taped or tied down securely. Windshields are usually covered with thick cardboard and taped securely. Cardboard may prevent damage from a thrown rock or other flying objects.
- Prime movers should be matched with trailers or towed items. The towed items should be detached and the tongues moved up under the prime mover for more space.
- Fuel tanks on vehicles being shipped should be no more than three-fourths full or IAW Port Call requirements. All fuel cans must be empty as well as tank and pump units, (residual fuel require a hazmat certification). All out-loading of rolling stock will be staged and loaded at the old railhead.
Freight will complete a cost estimate within 48 hours of receiving the request. The cost will be annotated on the shipping request form and returned to the customer. Once the unit has the appropriate TAC with the Budget Analysis signature it will be returned to Freight for shipment processing.
