What does Military Car Shipping mean?

Military car shipping, otherwise known as military auto transport, is a service specifically for military personnel, both active and retired. Given the nature of military duty, you might have to face sudden permanent change-of-station (PCS) orders, mandating a move to a new base.

That's where professional military vehicle shipping companies come in, aiming to make sure your car is shipped smoothly. Navi Auto Transport is proficient in managing the unique requirements and tight schedules typically associated with military car shipping.

The carrier is tasked with picking up and delivering your vehicle as close to your specified location as possible. Active military personnel with PCS orders can usually benefit from car shipping military discounts. Moreover, if you're transporting only one vehicle, you may be eligible for reimbursement from the government. Alongside these benefits, Navi Auto Transport provides a door-to-door auto shipping option.

How Does Military Car Shipping Work?

Military vehicle transport works the same way as standard auto transport and it's for active military members only. The Government may cover the cost of one privately owned vehicle (POV) shipment when it's a PCS order.

However if you want to ship more than one car, those costs would be your responsibility.

Does a Military Discount Exist for Car Shipping?

Yes, there is a military discount to ship a car but only for active and retired members of the military. When you contact a car shipping company ask about a military discount. Depending on current market conditions and the total distance of the transport, this discount could be up to 10%.

2. We pick up your vehicle

Your chosen military car transporter will contact you before pickup to ensure someone can release the vehicle and that the location suits their truck. If needed, they can arrange an alternative spot. You can also authorize someone else to release the vehicle. The carrier will load your vehicle and you can track its journey via phone or email. During pickup, both you and the driver will inspect the vehicle for existing damage and note it on the Bill of Lading, which you'll sign and keep a copy of.

3. We deliver your vehicle

Before you know it, you’ll be receiving a call to let you know your vehicle is almost home. You will be given several hours' notice to ensure your availability at home. If you are unable to personally receive the car, you have the option to designate a friend, neighbor, relative, or colleague who is at least 18 years old to accept delivery on your behalf.

Once the military car shippers have delivered your car, the last step involves inspecting your car to ensure everything is in proper condition before signing the Bill of Lading to accept delivery of your car. If you have chosen the Discounted Cash Price option, the final payment needs to be made to the carrier at this time. Accepted forms of payment include cash, cashier's check, or money order.

What are the different types of military moves?

Military personnel have several moving options available when they receive their PCS orders. One option is a Government Managed Move, where the government arranges for professional movers on your behalf. Another choice is a Personally Procured Move (PPM) or DITY (do-it-yourself) move, which can be either self-move or assisted. A PPM-self move involves handling all aspects of the move independently, while a PPM-assisted move allows you to hire someone to assist with the work.
