Extending Temporary Storage
Your basic entitlement for temporary storage is 90 days. You may apply for an additional 90 days. Some criteria to extend temporary storage are:
- Serious illness of the member (include doctors statement)
- Serious illness or death of a dependent
- Impending assignment to Government quarters (include letter from housing office assigning quarters within extension period)
- Directed TDY after arrival at permanent station (include copies of TDY orders)
- Non-availability of suitable civilian housing
- Awaiting completion of residence under construction (include statement from builder)
- Acts of God
Note: The intent of the temporary storage entitlement is not long-term storage. It is intended to give the service member sufficient time to find quarters that will accommodate the property shipped to the new duty station.
You must submit your extension request prior to your current storage expiration date and the request must be approved by the transportation office storing your personal property.
To schedule the delivery of your personal property you will need an address and date (week day / non-holiday). You can schedule your delivery over the phone or through email.
