The Benefits of Choosing Military Car Shipping
You can receive a PCS (Permanent Change of Station) order at any time and we understand how frustrating this can be for you and your family. With very little notice, you’re required to pack up and move to another base or part of the country. The military can help with the transporting of your personal possessions and one car, but many of you will have more than one vehicle . Your spouse might have their own car and your kids, if they’re old enough to drive.
Knowing that your vehicles are being transported in a safe and secure way is going to be a load off your mind. Choose to book your military car shipping with SGT Auto Transport and you’ll be able to store one suitcase or box in the trunk of your car at no extra charge. It does, however, have to be under 100lbs in weight and not impact on the safe transporting of the vehicle.
Another benefit of choosing our military car shipping service is that you’re entitled to a discount. To say thank you for all that you do in protecting our country, military personnel including those on active and reserve duty, veterans, National Guard, and military dependents are offered a discount.
Here at SGT Auto Transport, we have a team of shipping advisors who are available to help with any questions, give you a free instant quote and make your booking. Office hours are 8 AM to 7 PM on weekdays and 8 AM to 5 PM at weekends. Call on (866) 774 6570, use our instant chat option or send us an email. There is also an online calculator you can make use of.
The service we offer is door to door, making the transporting of your vehicle completely hassle-free. We pick your vehicle up from your current location and deliver it, according to the agreed schedule, to your specified location within the US.
A guaranteed pick up date is something else we can offer. You will, however, need to provide us with at least two week’s notice. This gives us enough time to find the right carrier for your service and for the driver to get to the pick-up location.
Military Car Shipping Options
When it comes to POV (privately owned vehicle) shipments there are several options you should consider.
• Open vs Enclosed Shipping – it is generally recommended that you transport your vehicle using open shipping. This is by far the cheapest and most convenient way. There are, however, occasions that call for something a little different. If you’re the proud owner of custom, classic, vintage, luxury or high-end vehicle, enclosed transportation is the better option. Your car is better protected and more secure.
• Standard vs Expedited Shipping – if you’ve got all the time in the world then the obvious choice is to stick with the standard service. However, military personnel is not always given the luxury of time which means an expedited service might be a better option. It does come with an extra cost but your shipment will be given priority. The industry standard service is generally between 5 and 7 days. An express or expedited service, such as the one offered by SGT Auto Transport, can reduce this time to between 1 and 2 days.
Getting Your Vehicle Ready for Shipping
When you choose the best auto transport management company to ship your car you’ve taken the most important step. There are a number of things you have to do to your vehicle before it’s picked up.
Visit your local mechanic and have the vehicle checked over to ensure that it’s in good working order. The battery should be fully charged, fluids topped up, and the brakes in good working order.
All personal items have to be removed, although you are permitted to have up to 100lbs of items secured in the trunk.
Clean your car both inside and outside because this makes it easier to inspect. You need to perform a thorough inspection before your vehicle is picked up and make a record of any scratches, dents, and dings. This information will be needed should you need to make a claim if your vehicle gets damaged on route.
Put the transport of your vehicle into the hands of a reputable company such as SGT Auto Transport and you can concentrate on all the other arrangements that have to be made.
