Fort Drum Shipping Services by A-1 Auto Transport
Fort Drum is a US Army Reserve and a census-designated place in the northern part of New York State. It is part of Jefferson County. The fort occupies a space of over 107,000 acres of land. The weather can be cold, going as low as -30 degrees Fahrenheit. It is has a mission to command active components posted to the installation as well as provide administrative support to tenant units. Getting your vehicle to this large fort might prove to be more difficult than you initially realize. There is no need to worry, though, because A-1 Auto Transport ships vehicles to the fort, and we will walk you through all that it entails.
Shipping to a Base in the CONUS Area
Fort Drum is in Jefferson County, New York, United States. This means that the government won’t be involved in the shipping process of your vehicles. You will have to figure that out yourself. There are, though, a few officers who will get sponsorship from the government to the base. These officers are in special situations. Discuss your current situation with your transportation officer to know if you are eligible for sponsorship. Getting the right third-party auto shipping company to hire is the next step which begins with your visiting our website.
Full List of Military Shipping Services We Offer
There are various other vehicles we ship apart from cars to the base and they include:
Military Car Shipping
Since there is no sponsorship, you might be considering a cross-country drive to the base. While this is a good idea on paper, in practice, things might go wrong leading to you reporting late at your new station. To prevent such things from happening, you should choose to hire a third-party shipping company that can get your vehicle to the base while you take a flight and arrive on time. There are rules surrounding vehicles that you will have to know before you ship your car to Fort Drum. Ask your transportation officer what the vehicle rules are.
There are, in addition, documents that will be asked of you during the shipping process and they include:
- Proof of ownership
- Government-issued ID
- Permanent Change of Station
- Permit to ship a leased vehicle
Preparing your car for Shipment
Getting a vehicle ready for shipping is the first step in the shipping process.
- Go over the car and take note of any marks or spots that you see.
- Wash the car with a detergent and rinse with clean water.
Military Motorcycle Shipping
Riding a motorbike to a base is a common consideration of officers that are posted to CONUS areas. However, this can lead to reporting late at the duty posts. It can also put a strain on the motorcycle leading to damage. While cost is the main concern and rightfully so, you can get great military discounts for shipping your motorbike. A-1 Auto Transport offers such services and gives special consideration to military officers. If you will be shipping your bike, you should get some documents ready. Proof of ownership of the bike and a government-issued means of identification will be needed.
Preparing your motorcycle for Shipment
You should prepare your motorcycle for shipping as reduces the chances of accidents happening during the process. You should:
- Examine the whole vehicle for marks and dents and record such things with either a camera or in writing.
- Wash the car thoroughly with detergent and rinse with clean water.
