Naval Station Rota, Spain Auto Shipping Services by A-1 Auto Transport
The Naval Station Rota in Spain is unlike any other military installation in Europe. Whereas other stations are run by the US government under rigorous constraints imposed by foreign governments, this one is mainly handled by the Spanish Vice Admiral. The money spent on this station comes from the US pocket. In other terms, the United States pays for the entire base. Rota is a little village near El Puerto de Santa Maria which is where the base is located. The base's residents make up the largest US community on Spanish soil. Sailors, Marines, US Army forces, and US Air Force professionals are all stationed there. The majority of the residents are Americans. The base is currently functional and is jointly managed by both countries.
Being posted here is a big deal because you will not only be serving the United States but also the Spanish government. The minute you get your posting, contact A-1 Auto Transport to get started on your shipping. After all, we are here to make things easy for you.
Shipping to a Base in the OCONUS Area
For the lucky birds that have been posted here, the government will be paying for the shipping of one vehicle because this station is located outside the regions of the US. Your HCG is also handled by the government as long as it doesn’t pass the specific weight allotted. The assigned sponsorship and its arrival might not be convenient for you, so you should get in touch with your transportation officer to be sure you are getting the right benefit.
With the help of a shipping company like A-1 Auto Transport, you can have an efficient shipping plan.

Also, prepare all the necessary documents that are required for the shipment of your vehicle. Such as;

Military Motorcycle Shipping
If you want to ship a motorcycle to Canberra, the government will fund it as your sole mode of transportation. but if you intend to transport a motorcycle as a second vehicle, keep in mind that the government will not sponsor it. Shipping a motorbike is less expensive than shipping a car, it would be preferable if you put the automobile on the sponsorship while you pay for the bike. Consult with your station's transportation officer to figure out the rules about motorcycles in your base.
You'll need to show that the bike is yours or that the owner has permitted you to bring it to Australia. As a result, be sure your paperwork is in order.
