Base to Base PCS Auto Transportimages 4 1 #1 Military Auto Transport | PCS Car Shipping Service

Using a military car shipping service is regular for folks making a big move.

Whether they are civilians making a job move from Texas to California or an Air Force soldier moving from Dover AFB across the country to or Travis, they need a hand moving their vehicle across the country.

It can be even more demanding if they have dependents and another family, with multiple cars and households of personal items!

The distance between bases can be thousands of miles. While the Army, Navy, Air Force, or Coast Guard may be moving your household goods to your next base, you – and possibly your dependents – must get your POV there yourself.

If you’ve got particular belongings that you don’t entrust to the government’s Transportation Service Provider (TSP), you might even have a moving truck to look after. Not everyone trusts the TSP, and let’s face it; you’ll also need some personal goods during the move. Even when you get to the next stop, it can take days for the TSP to get your goods to the right house, and you might need some of that clothing or home goods while you’re still waiting.

Let the professionals do this transport, whether long-distance or just a few states over, will be easier. Transporting your car from one base to another is easy because many families use a car transport service company to move their vehicles when given a PCS.

Have You Received a Permanent Change of Station (PCS Order) And Need Your Car Shipped?

First, Lite Auto Transport proudly supports the brave men and women soldiers who fight hard to protect our country. Because of this, we offer a discount to any military member who has received a PCS order and needs a POV shipped. We understand that military members frequently must move from one location to another without notice. For this reason, we strive to provide the best military car shipping services to all our military members and families.

It doesn’t matter if you are moving to San Diego, Camp Lejeune, Parris Island, or Annapolis. We have reliable military car transport carriers who will treat your car like it’s their own. We have an outstanding customer service rating from the Better Business Bureau and numerous top ratings and reviews on Google, Yelp, and Transport Reviews.

Open or Enclosed Transport

Depending on your need, different companies provide different military car shipping services.

You can ship your vehicle using open transport or choose an enclosed transport. An open carrier is your best car transport option if you want a low-cost transport option.

But let’s face it; troops love their toys. In some cases, those toys are high-end exotic or high-performance vehicles. Plenty of them enjoy motorcycles, utility vehicles, ATVs, dirt bikes, and even a golf cart here and there! In that case, you might want to transport using an enclosed carrier. An enclosed trailer will ensure your classic car is not damaged by the wind or the moving particles on the road. It is also easier to transport smaller vehicles, thanks to the ability to palletize and tie down smaller vehicles versus the one-size-fits-all loading process of open carriers.

Military auto shipping can refer to transporting vehicles for military members, or shipping military vehicles themselves.
Every car transporter will be able to ship vehicles for military members, but not all can transport military vehicles. Luckily, we here at Lite Auto Shipping can do both!

We can transport vehicles to and from all 50 states ,territories. We offer competitive discounts for military members and can also handle almost any military vehicle, so long as they have wheels.

Military Auto Shipping: What is it?

Military Auto ShippingSimply put, military auto shipping services are just what they sound like – shipping vehicles for military members. It can also include shipping military vehicles, such as Humvees and jeeps. Every transportation company out there, be they a broker or a carrier, will offer military car transport services for military members, both active and retired.

It is quite rare to see services offered for active service members but not retired service members, and vice-versa. In our experience, auto transporters do not discriminate based on active or retired duty.

You can find military car shipping services on open, enclosed, and even flatbed transport trucks depending on what you are shipping.

Open transportation services are often the cheapest and most cost-effective services to use.

Enclosed is often suggested for more expensive vehicles that are not driven daily.

Note, however, that enclosed transport generally takes longer to find than open transport services.

The last, flatbed shipping, is an on-demand service used for large vehicles that cannot fit on standard transport trucks.

Please note, however, that we’re discussing military auto transport services throughout the United States.

Almost every car transport company that you’ll find handles domestic auto shipping services, and not international. If you are transporting a vehicle to a military base outside the United States and its outlying territories, you will need an international transportation company.

Military Car Shipping: Discounts For Military Members

Military Auto ShippingAny auto transport company that offers military auto shipping will provide a discount for our men and women in uniform. This can range from a simple $25 off your total cost to over a hundred bucks, depending on the shipper. Did you know we here at Lite Auto Transport offer military car shipping discounts too?

Since the military only pays to ship one vehicle per service member, anyone in the military needing auto shipping for a second vehicle needs to go to an independent auto shipper in order to get it moved.  Most auto transport companies offer military auto shipping, though.

It’s best to look at which companies provide military auto shipping services before you book with anyone.

Some companies may not offer military auto shipping discounts. It’s important to tell your auto shipper that you are a member of the military.

Make sure to have proper identification before you book with a company that offers a military auto shipping discount as well. Requirements for a military discount will be different from shipper to shipper as well.

We recommend you speak to a representative to learn more.

Military Auto Shipping: What And Where You Can Ship

Most companies that offer military auto shipping services – including us – can haul just about any kind of vehicle. Whether you need to ship a car, truck, SUV, minivan, 4×4, ATV, motorcycle, jet ski, or something else, we can move it for you.

Most companies that ship for military members can pick up and deliver at a military base.

It has to be acceptable with the base commander, though. Get permission before you have pickup or delivery at the base.

If your vehicle cannot be delivered to a military base, you’ll need to meet your shipper somewhere nearby.

Chances are, however, that you can get it shipped close to the gates or the entrance of the base. You can also have your vehicle shipped to and from your house if you need it to be.

Many carrier companies are happy to meet you outside the base as well. This is a great alternative if the transport truck cannot get onto the base but the commanding officer is okay with it happening right outside.

Ultimately, military auto shipping services are relatively easy to find and, with discounts, more affordable than ever.

While not everyone can ship a deactivated tank, some actually can.

The U.S. military has its own shippers that they prefer, but if you’re shipping something from an army surplus store or something we can definitely ship it.

Whether it’s an old World War II-era army jeep or something else, like an armored personnel carrier or something, we can help you get it moved.

Some of the military’s old vehicles may not fit on a standard carrier, so expect to pay a bit more for a flatbed auto shipper if your auto transport representative says you need one.
