Military Auto Shipping Benefits

How to Ship a Car From a Military Base

If you’ve recently received new PCS orders as an active military service member, you may be looking for the best way to ship your car. Luckily your military auto shipping benefits can help relieve some of your stress and help make it easier to move your vehicle. There are a few other benefits to shipping your car that will help make your military move less stressful.

Save Time

When you get your new PCS orders, you may not have a lot of time before you need to move. If you’re expected to report to your new station, you can quickly avoid the hassle of trying to schedule your own cross country trip by using an auto transport broker to help you find the best price. Utilize your military benefit for car shipping to schedule auto transport to have your vehicle picked up and delivered to your new home. This will save you time to focus on moving to a new home and adjusting to your assignment. 

Save Money

If you’re able to take advantage of an army benefit for car shipping, you’ll avoid the cost of transporting your car across the country on your own. Not only is it a hassle, but you’ll avoid having to pay for hotels, food, additional costs. Even if your military benefits don’t include auto transport for some reason, shipping with a broker will only cost you a flat fee and you wouldn’t have the costs of driving your vehicle.

Metti International offers door-to-door auto transport service where possible. However, there are instances that we cannot collect/deliver directly to the door due to the size of our auto carrier’s trucks. The size of your street may prohibit direct delivery to your door. Also, some towns and cities do not allow trucks on their residential streets. If the carrier cannot get to your door, he will deliver your vehicle to the next most convenient accessible location, such as the nearest major crossing street, a shopping mall or supermarket.

Please have a no more than 1/4 tank of fuel, remove all personal items from your vehicle and have it washed and cleaned so that the ensuing inspection is easily performed. If it is a convertible, T-top, sunroof, etc. make sure all openings are closed and prepared for changing weather. You can find additional tips on how to prepare your car for transport here.
