From the Homefront: Dealing with household good overages

Four years after a move, Cheryl Smith and her family received a bill from the Coast Guard for $2,000 in household good overage charges. The bill arrived in May, just before they were getting ready to transfer to their next duty station in Kodiak, Alaska. The bills started going out this past spring, and they are for household goods overages that amounted to about $920,000 in total. The average bill has amounted to about $1,764.
