What is a military vehicle transport?
Military automobile transportation is a service designed particularly for military personnel, both active and retired. Because you can get PCS orders at short notice, the military vehicle carriers you pick will do everything feasible to make your military vehicle transportation as simple as possible. The carrier will pick up your POV and delivered it as near to your location as possible by the carrier.
How does military PCS vehicle transportation work?
Certain members who are assigned to a new duty station are entitled to PCS vehicle shipping. According to the Department of Defense, only one privately owned vehicle may be transported at government expense. The Military Traffic Management Command (MTMC) must approve alternative port requests. However, if you wish to transport more than one automobile, you must pay for the extra expenses yourself.
Does the military ship your car for free?
The government may assist you in moving one personal operating vehicle (POV) if you are an active member of the military and receive a permanent change of station (PCS) order. However, you must verify with the Department of Defense whether there are any restrictions.
Is there a military discount for shipping a car?
You must inform our customer service department that you are a member of the military before you book for a military shipping discount. For more information, we suggest you speak to a representative.
How much does military PCS vehicle shipping cost?
Military car transport costs are determined by several factors.

How our military vehicle shipping services work
Our 3-step process makes your auto transportation hassle-free
Step 1. Get a quote and book your order
Use our online free instant quote calculator to discover the cost of your military car shipping service. You may also contact us at 888-802-8250, email, or Live Chat with our military PCS vehicle shipping experts.
The quotation you receive for military vehicle shipping is fully inclusive. There are no hidden costs included in the quotation. You are under no further obligation after receiving a quote. Depending on military base limitations, we provide door-to-door military vehicle transportation.
Step 2. We pick up your vehicle
Set a convenient time and place for your trucker to pick up the vehicle. The assigned military car carrier will contact you a few hours before your scheduled pick-up time. When the trucker arrives, you’ll inspect the vehicle and sign a Bill of Lading.
They’ll need to verify that someone is available to release the vehicle and that your location is safe for big commercial vehicles. You may also choose to have a third party, such as a neighbor, friend, relation, or work colleague, release your car for you.
Step 3. Receive Your Vehicle
During transit, you can contact us at any time for a tracking update. You’ll be receiving a phone call before you know it, informing you that your automobile is on its way home. You’ll be given a couple of hours’ notice so you can ensure that you’re there.
If you’re not available to receive your automobile at the arranged time, you can choose someone else to accept delivery on your behalf. They must be at least 18 years old.
What are the different forms of military PCS relocation?
When a military member gets his PCS orders, he or she has a number of moving possibilities. When the government hires movers for you, it is known as a Government Managed Move.
The acronym PPM stands for Personal Procurement Move or DITY (do-it-yourself) and can be either aided or self-funded. The PPM-self is when you do everything yourself. The PPM-assisted, on the other hand, is when you employ someone to complete the task for you.
Which kind of vehicle do we transport?
We can also ship any kind of military vehicle you might need! Whether it’s a large military jeep, Main battle tank, Infantry fighting vehicles, Armored personnel carriers, Armored combat support vehicles, light armored vehicles, Light utility vehicles, a humvee, or any other type of armed force vehicle, chances are we can move it for you at a reasonable price.
What kind of auto transportation service does military personnel use?
Open car transport is a popular choice among military personnel, both retired and active. Door-to-door transport is recommended for military PCS vehicle shipping because it is more convenient. We transport vehicles to and from any US location, including military bases. But, first, you must verify whether a trucking firm is permitted to enter the base.
Door to door pickup and delivery
Shipping a military vehicle across the state or country requires special skills. We possess these skills. Our door-to-door moving service is designed to make relocations easier for active and retired military personnel.
Many companies that ship for military members can pick up and deliver at military bases. But the commanding officer has to approve it. Don’t make pickups or deliveries at the base without permission.
You may also meet carrier companies outside the base. If the transport truck is unable to enter the base but the commanding officer allows it to happen outside, this is an excellent alternative. You can also have your vehicle shipped to and from your home if you need it.
