Izmir Air Station Car Shipping

Izmir Air Station Shipping Services by A-1 Auto Transport

Izmir Air Station is a United States Air force in Izmir, Turkey. It is located on the western side of the country and is 200 miles southwest of Istanbul.

The United States' responsibilities in the region began in 1952 with the activation of the Allied Land Forces South-Eastern Europe. The United States Air Force in Europe assumed command of the air station in 1956 and assumed support responsibilities for the US Air force and NATO in the area.

You might be excited to go to Turkey but what will you do about shipping your vehicle to the location? It might seem complicated and you might not know what to do. But that is why we at A-1 Auto Transport are here. We ship vehicles to the air station.

Shipping to a Base in the OCONUS Area

Izmir Air Station is near Istanbul in Turkey which is outside the Continental United States. This means that the government will be sponsoring the shipping of one personal vehicle for military officers posted to the air station.

While this is a fact, there is still work to be done in processing the sponsorship. You will have to work out what way you want your vehicle shipped. To secure your legibility for the sponsorship, discuss the whole process with your transportation officer.

You should in the meantime be getting shipping quotes from companies to help you know what sort of bill to expect.

Full List of Military Shipping Services We Offer

  • Motorbikes
  • Cars
  • Trucks
  • ATVs

Military Car Shipping

There is a big chance that you will be getting sponsored for shipping. But that doesn’t mean that the government will make all arrangements on your behalf. You will have to pick the shipping company yourself and carry out the documentation yourself.

You can use military movers to ship your vehicle but that might be very inconvenient. In most cases, these movers have a backlog of vehicles and other items to move. To prevent being on a long waiting list, you should hire a shipping company to ship your vehicle with the sponsorship of the government.

While you make these arrangements, get familiar with the rules concerning vehicles on Izmir Air Station. Be sure that your vehicle meets the requirements for vehicles.

You will need a few documents during the process like:

  • A valid military ID
  • Permanent Change of Station
  • Proof of ownership of the vehicle.

Preparing your car for Shipment

Getting a car ready for shipping is important and it includes:

  • Checking all the pockets and compartments of the car for personal items and removing them.
  • Disconnecting the battery of the car or removing it totally from the car.

Military Motorcycle Shipping

You are getting sponsorship for a single-vehicle. If that vehicle is your bike then process sponsorship for it. If the motorbike isn’t the only vehicle you are shipping and you want to ship a car as well then you will have to pay for shipping the bike.

Although shipping a bike to Izmir will be expensive, most companies, A-1 Auto Transport included, offer military officers discounts for shipping.

Some documents will be required as you process shipping and they include proof of ownership of the motorcycle or a permit to ship a leased motorcycle.

Preparing your motorcycle for Shipment

Getting a motorbike ready for shipping is easy but important. It includes:

  • Disconnecting the battery of the bike or removing the battery.
  • Removing all personal effects like pictures and documents.

It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.
★★★★★

Due to the nature of my work, I must relocate every couple of years to where my company needs me. Because of this, I’ve tested several moving and auto transport companies over the years.

And my choice in terms of auto transport has to be A1 Auto Transport. It’s in the name, but also in the quality with which they do their jobs. I’ve never had a problem with this company.

The only time my shipment was delayed was during winter when a snowstorm closed down all the major roads. And they still found an alternative and got my car delivered before roads got unstuck.

When I moved to West Virginia, they picked up my car the very day I called them. I like to think they take special care of me considering all the business I’ve sent them. I’ll continue to support A1 Auto Transport. It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.

You have my full support and recommendation!

I considered selling my car when I moved to Washington. It was old and rusty, but I grew attached to it. So, I called a couple companies to transport it to my new home, but they both fell through.

The first one couldn’t decide on a schedule. He would constantly change the pickup date till I got frustrated and canceled. The second was insufferable, very rude on the phone, even worse in person.

They started picking a part my car asking me why I still have it. If that’s their opinion of my vehicle, how can I trust they’ll take care of it? If something happened midway, why wouldn’t they just blame it on the car instead of paying up?

So, I cancelled this company as well and turned to A1 Auto Transport. From the get go, they were very different from my past options. Their website was very professional and up to date, full of useful information. I requested a quote using their online form, and I got an email response within an hour. Surprisingly fast!

If I didn’t know any better, I would’ve thought they were lacking customers, but the email spoke for itself. In just one email, everything I needed to know was there, including a contact number I could use to get more information or confirm the transport.

I called and got things rolling. I was very pleased with the driver. He followed standard procedure and represented his company well. Can’t remember his name, but props to him!

The car arrived in Washington 6 days later in excellent condition. From what I understand, the transport was delayed a bit by a storm, but since the time window was 4-6 days from the beginning, I don’t really care. You have my full support and recommendation!

I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.
★★★★★

There are a lot of options for auto transport these days, which surprisingly makes it harder to find a good company. I received more than 10 offers to ship my car, but I couldn’t decide on any of them.

After doing some research, I got even more worried reading about all the scams and accidents that can happen. But, I have work to do and couldn’t afford to drive my newly purchased Mini Cooper all the way to Virginia.

Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport. They are very good at their jobs. I spent more than an hour drilling Joe with various questions, and he never once lost his patience. He saw I was interested, so he bore with me until I was satisfied. The driver was also very courteous and my car was intact on arrival. I couldn’t have asked for more.

By the way, the price we first agreed on stayed the same. There were no delays or unexpected “surprises.” I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10!
★★★★★

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10! We chose them to move our car from California to Vermont, since we needed professionals.

We were abroad during the transport, so the transport was a bit tricky. The driver had to pick it up from storage on short notice and get it to its destination within at most 10 days. I was happy to note it arrived sooner. We got it 3 days early, right when we got home to pick it up. It made getting around way easier. Awesome service!
