Move.mil, the Defense Department’s online hub for permanent change-of-station moves, offers a weight estimator to help military movers figure out whether their personal belongings will fall within the allowed weight, or whether some pounds need shedding.
It’s an inexact science: Your old big-screen TV will weigh more than the new model, your sleek vacuum will weigh less than the bulky vintage offerings, your heavy wooden dresser will put the discount-store plastic model to shame ... and so on. But the estimator will produce a ballpark figure, and that’s a solid starting point for your next PCS trial-by-scale.
We’ve pulled out some of the item estimates to create the short quiz below. See how well your guesses stack up.
