Military POV shipping Hawaii

If you receive orders to ship out to Hawaii from the mainland U.S., you will most likely want to take your vehicle with you alongside your household goods. Privately owned vehicles, or POV can be shipped from the United States to Hawaii with A1 Auto Transport Service.

There are alternate ports that military personnel and their families can use for transport that is approved by the Military Traffic Management Command (MTMC). You will need to issue a request to use the alternative port in order to have your personal shipping office aware of the incoming vehicle.

Whether you are in a privately owned vehicle or leased vehicle, you will want to have it shipped to the new duty station at the expense of the government. You can, however, ship your own POV but you still need to consult with your sponsor and book an appointment with the transportation office to get clearance. You will most likely need to pay for an import duty on a second private vehicle if shipping from another country. Your local transportation office will be able to assist you with information on such navigation.

Preparing your vehicle for shipment.

Before you get started, you will need to prepare your vehicle and Have all your documentation ready and available to view at request. Military POV shipping to Hawaii documentation includes:

International auto logistics for shipments in San Diego, Atlanta, Alaska, and Germany
  • Proof of entitlement - bring one copy of your official orders and amendments.
  • Show proof of identity - Bring with you a valid government or state issued ID.
  • Show proof of ownership - You can verify your ownership by bringing with your proof of registration, a lien holder authorization letter, or even the title of the vehicle. It must have the service members name on it.
  • Print out and fill out the IAL form and have it ready to hand In.
  • Have the lien holders information so they can be contacted to verify.
  • If you have a leased vehicle, you will need to obtain a letter that authorizes the exportation of your vehicle.

Prepare your vehicle for shipping by washing it both inside and out in order to clean it free from debris and take a photo of the vehicle. You will also want the doors, the trunk, and underneath the seats to be cleaned as well. Remember, nothing can be left inside the vehicle such as a loose video or even the band radios. Any vehicle shipping out of a port in the United States is subject to a search in order to determine that the vehicle is clean, ready for transport, and prepared. At this time, any blemishes will be noted and you are required to sign the DD788 Inspection Form. Not all branches will have the same requirements for importing your vehicle.

  • The army and Air Force personnel are accepted for shipment as long as they are delivered to the port within three months after the department date of the serviceman.
  • The navy and Marine Corps personal vehicles, cars, and other items will be accepted when there are at least twelve months remaining on their term to serve.
Step to get half of your cost back - claim payment anywhere in anchorage or Alaska - Shipping POV and military equipment - military relocation

Another necessity is the EPA and DOT stickers that are an assurance that the vehicle is compatible with the environmental laws of the state. Have more questions about POV shipping to Hawaii? You might want to contact A1 Auto Transport service to know more about the process.

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

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