Naval Support Activity Panama City Shipping Services by A-1 Auto Transport
Naval Support Activity (NSA) Panama City is a military shore installation of the United States Navy. It is located just outside Panama City, Florida.
The NSA Panama City was founded in 1945 as US Navy Mine Countermeasure Station. Ten years later it became the US Navy Mine Defense Laboratory. It changed its name two more times before settling for Naval Support Activity in 2007. It is home to the Naval Experimental Diving Unit and the Naval Surface Warfare Center.
You might be worried about how you will get your vehicle to the base but there is a way. You can hire an auto shipping company to ship your vehicle. A-1 Auto Transport offers such a service.
Shipping to a Base in the CONUS Area
Naval Support Activity Panama City is in Panama City, Florida. Since it is located on US soil, the military won’t be responsible for the moving or shipping of your goods, including your vehicle. You will have to sponsor the shipping yourself.
There are, sometimes, exceptions to the rule. Such exceptions come when an officer is retiring or coming from a certain OCONUS area. Discuss the possibility of an exception with your transportation officer.
You should be getting as much information as you can at this point and that includes having an idea of how much shipping will cost. Get quotes from shipping companies.

Military Car Shipping
Unless you get exempted from the rule, you will be paying for the transportation of your vehicle. You might be tempted to make the long drive to the base. This won’t be a great idea if you live very far away.
The better thing to do is to hire an auto shipping company to ship your vehicle. You might be worried about costs but a few companies, like A-1 Auto Transport, offer discounts to military officers.
There might be laws guiding the vehicles that are allowed into the base. Get to know these laws and figure out if your vehicle meets the requirements.
Some documents will be required and they include:
- Permit to ship a car if the car is leased
- Proof of ownership of the car to be shipped
- A valid Government-issued ID
Preparing your car for Shipment
Getting your car ready for shipping includes:
- Combing through the car and taking pictures of it from all angles.
- Fixing any cracks that may be on the glass like the windshields and windows.
Military Motorcycle Shipping
You might not be getting sponsorship for shipping a vehicle so you will have to plan your shipping yourself. Riding the bike for many miles might seem fun but it is impractical for most people because they might not get to the base in time.
A better way to get to base on time and still have your bike with you is to ship it by using the services of a motorcycle shipping company that ships to military bases.
Know that you will also need to have the registration papers of the motorcycle handy, including the proof of ownership of the bike.
Preparing your motorcycle for Shipment
You shouldn’t ignore getting your bike ready for shipping. It can save your bike from damage.
- Disconnect or remove the battery from the bike.
- If you can remove the mirrors and headlights to reduce the chances of them getting damaged.
