Furniture Management Office (FMO) / Loan Locker
Household goods delivery will take a while in Turkey so to avoid lengthy stays in transient quarters or TLFs, the Furnishings Management Office was established to issue authorized items of government-owned furnishings to eligible personnel. These furnishings will help establish a household while household goods (HHG) are in transit, alleviating temporary lodging requirements. The FMO is located in the Housing Office, Bldg. 833, DSN 314-676-6232.
FMO support is authorized for military personnel, DoD civilians and DoDDS employees (accompanied and unaccompanied sponsored) and contractor Key and Mission Essential Personnel. FMO loaner furniture support is limited to 90 days. If circumstances warrant, i.e., HHG has not arrived, you may request an extension through the FMO office. Extensions must be submitted in writing, detailing the reason for the extension and how long you will need to retain the furniture items. All members authorized support are entitled to the following items on a permanent basis -Refrigerator, range, washer and dryer -Smoke detectors (as required).
FMO delivers and picks up the traditional "loan locker" items. Simply annotate that you want the kit when you arrange for your FMO furniture delivery. A loaner kit consisting of pots and pans, dishes, coffee pot, toaster and iron/ironing board (no TVs or VCRs) is available for all authorized personnel for up to 90 days after arrival, and for up to 90 days before departure. The loan kit does not provide blankets, pillows, sheets, towels, shower curtains or telephones. These items should be shipped in your hold baggage. Linens may be checked out on a space available basis from the Airman and Family Readiness Center, but towels are not available. These items should be shipped in your hold baggage, or mailed at least two weeks prior to your expected arrival.
If authorized items are not available for issue, you will be placed on the waiting list. Get in contact with the FMO for further assistance and information on procedures to acquire items above, as well as necessary documentation needed. Appliances and wardrobes are issued for the duration of your tour when authorized to reside on the economy. FMO requires 7 duty days notice for delivery and 10 duty days for pick up of Loaner Furniture. Take your PCS orders and/or amendments, rental contract and landlord certificate of agreement, if residing off base, or the USAFE Form 250 if residing in government quarters.
Private climate-controlled self-storage facilities, such as we have in the U.S., do not exist in the local Incirlik community. On base, FSS Outdoor Recreation has individual storage units for rent. These are not large nor designed to hold large pieces of furniture. Storage units are available in two sizes, 6x12 and 10x12 feet. The costs could change over time, but at the time of this printing they run $25 and $30 respectively for the two sizes if you are a Club member (non-members pay $35 and $45 respectively). Contact Outdoor Recreation at 676-6044 for prices and availability; sometimes there is a waiting list for these popular spaces.
