Joint Base Charleston, SC Shipping Services by A-1 Auto Transport

Joint Base Charleston was one of 12 joint bases formed in 2010 in the United States as a result of legislation that ordered the consolidation of separate military facilities which were adjoining into a single joint base. With over 20877 acres encompassed by the joint base charleston, it hosts 67 Federal Agencies and Military Command and services over 79,000 military personnel. 

It is home to the United States Airforces 628th airbase wing (628th (ABW)) which is responsible for proving supporting services such as housing, maintenance, security, legal, food service, among other things. All these duties fall under what is known as installation support.

Shipping to a Base in the CONUS Area 

Since the 628th (ABW) at joint base charleston provides housing and other essential services for military personnel, it is has a large population with new postings occurring frequently. If you have been posted to the 628th ABW and you would like to arrange for the transportation of your personally owned vehicle (POV) you will need to contact a reliable company like A1 Auto-transport. 

The united states government normally does not sponsor shipping for POVs for personnel posted within the united states. There are of course some exceptions and you would need to contact your transportation officer to find out if you are eligible for a sponsored move.

Military Car Shipping

When shipping a motor vehicle to the Joint Base Charleston there are several factors to take into consideration. Completing the necessary documentation is essential to the success of your car shipment. Without adequate complete documentation, your car shipment move may not be processed in time which may leave you stranded. 

Preparing your car for Shipment

In preparation for your car shipment, you will need to take note of the following;  Remove all personal items from inside the vehicle and disable the alarm

  • Clean the inside and out preferably at the car cleaners, however, you can do this on your own.
  • Empty the gas tank, engine oil and coolant  so that they don’t leak during transportation
  • Document all current damage such as cracks or dents on the car well to avoid disputes in the event of a damage claim.
  • Ensure that the vehicle is fully registered by or at least leased by an active member of military staff or military dependant
  • Ensure that the vehicle must is road-worthy, functional, and legal to travel on public highways and have at least 4 wheels with the exception of a motorcycle.

Military Motorcycle Shipping

Undertaking a motorcycle shipping expedition as an individual is almost impossible when you have a long-distance to cover, not to mention the total toll it would have on your body, added costs of gas, wear and tear, and lodging along the way. This may leave the overall bill skyrocketing as compared to just hiring a reliable moving service. 

Preparing your motorcycle for Shipment

Preparation for shipping a motorcycle is nearly similar to that of a car

  • Draining fluids like gas or coolant is important as it prevents leaving during transportation
  • Ensure you have all the appropriate, necessary documentation.
  • Clean the motorcycle prior to the move and document all defaults like cracks and dents.

...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.

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... Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport.
