NSA Souda Bay’s Loaner Furnishings Program is open to all military and DoD civilian personnel on permanent change of station orders to NSA Souda Bay. Both accompanied and unaccompanied personnel are eligible to receive temporary loaner, as well as full-tour packages. To be eligible, members must have a "signed housing lease." Although stock levels are sufficient to meet the demand, members are urged to request only those items actually needed to complete the household. Members will be placed on a waiting list for items not available at the time of their request. The list will be prioritized by the date the lease was signed, but follow-up is the member's responsibility.
When those items become available, Housing personnel will call and schedule a delivery appointment. Members requesting additional out-of-stock items after initial delivery will be placed on the bottom of the waiting list. The furniture section needs five working days notice to schedule furniture delivery or pick up. Any cancellation of a scheduled delivery, service call, or pick up requires at least one working day notice, or you may be charged for the service. Charges for missed appointments or canceled appointments without proper notification range from $45 to $170. The variations in the prices are related to the various types of moves (Light or normal/weight; loaner or full tour).
Make sure your electricity is on during the delivery so the delivery personnel can complete the required work (i.e., testing appliances), because the contractors will not make additional trips to complete the work. The contractors must deliver furniture and equipment in a clean and working condition.
Many of the items that will be delivered are not new, and scratches or dents are not grounds for refusal of the item. Damages to the items should be noted on the delivery receipt to avoid being charged for prior damages. To schedule delivery, pick up or service calls, contact the Housing Office at 266-1920.
