Naval Air Facility El Centro Shipping Services by A-1 Auto Transport
Naval Air Facility El Centro is a United States Navy Naval Air Facility located 6 miles northwest of El Centro, Imperial County, California.
The air facility serves as a temporary home to naval forces carrying out bombing exercises and also a winter home for the Blue Angels. It was founded in 1946 as an air station but got its current designation as a naval air facility in 1979. The Blue Angels conduct air shows from the facility.
A military officer posted to this facility should be looking forward to all the facility has to offer but, in many cases, the stress of planning the move occupies officers’ minds. The good thing is that there are options for shipping vehicles to the facility.
Shipping to a Base in the CONUS Area
The naval air facility is in California which is on US soil. This means that according to military policy, officers are supposed to make their arrangements for moving to the base and won’t be getting any sponsorship. This policy also covers the transportation of personal vehicles.
While this policy is set in stone, there are exemptions to it. Certain officers who have served under specific conditions are still sponsored for moves to CONUS areas. You should discuss this with your transportation officer to know if you are eligible.
As you figure out your eligibility for an exemption, contact various auto transport companies to know what sort of bill you will be working with.

We ship different sorts of vehicles including:
Military Car Shipping
You aren’t entitled to any sponsorship from the government unless you are exempted. Because of this, some officers consider driving to their CONUS area postings.
The disadvantage of driving the car to the base is the first of all, the wear and tear you will give the car. The second challenge will be getting to the facility on time. This is why hiring an auto transport company is a great idea.
Naval Air Facility El Centro has specifications for the type of vehicles that are allowed on site. Get to know these specifications and ensure your vehicle meets them before shipping it to the base.
A few documents will be needed to process the shipping of your car and they include:
- Proof that you or a family member owns the vehicle to be shipped
- Military ID
Preparing your car for Shipment
Getting your car ready for shipping involves:
- Updating the registration documents of the car and having all required documents.
- Draining the petrol in the tank to less than a quarter of the tank’s capacity.
Military Motorcycle Shipping
Motorcycles are also the responsibility of the officers who own them for postings that lead to CONUS areas. This means that you will be paying for the shipping of your bike.
You might think of riding a bike to California but if you aren’t already in the state, that won’t be the best idea. If you plan your shipping well, you will pay less than you think for the service.
Get a few documents ready to process the shipping of your bike. You will need proof of ownership of the motorcycle and also your military ID.
Preparing your motorcycle for Shipment
- Empty the petrol tank or reduce the gas in it to less than a quarter of the tank’s capacity.
- Update the registration documents of the motorbike.
