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.

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.
You should be focused on getting to Izmir Air Station and not on shipping your vehicle. Let us handle that. Call us on 1-800-452-2880.
