Pentagon-Air Force Car Auto Shipping Services by A-1 Auto Transport
The Pentagon is the office of the United States Department of Defense located in Arlington, Virginia.
The Department isn’t far from the Capital of the United States. It is considered the biggest office building in the world. Its grounds cover a land space of over 150 acres with buildings covering over 80 acres of that space. The United States Air Force like other branches of the military has offices in the location.
You should be excited about being posted to the Pentagon. However, not knowing how you will get your vehicle to the area especially if you live far, can take away your excitement. A-1 Auto Transport offers shipping services to military officers, and we ship to the Pentagon.
Shipping to a Base in the CONUS Area
Since the Pentagon is located on US soil, the government won’t be responsible for the transportation of your vehicle. You will have to make the shipping arrangements yourself and pay for the shipping yourself as well.
However, like most things, there are exceptions to this policy. Certain officers coming to the Pentagon from certain locations will be exempted from the rule and get government sponsorship. Visit your Transportation Officer to know if you can get an exemption.
At the same time, you should be drawing up a budget and getting shipping quotes from shipping companies.

Military Car Shipping
The chances of getting any sponsorship for shipping your car are slim. So, you will be responsible for any shipping costs you incur. Because of this, officers consider driving to their new postings if they are in the CONUS area. This might seem like a cost-saving idea but in reality, it is more complicated than that.
It is safer to hire a company that ships vehicles to the Pentagon area and has the peace of mind such a service will bring. If you take this route, you will arrive at your new posting on time and not be stressed out.
There will be specifications for the kind of vehicles allowed into the Pentagon Air Force. Know these rules and ensure your car meets the specifications.
Some documents will be required for processing the shipping of your car and they include:
- Proof of ownership of the car to be shipped
- Permanent Change of Station Document
- Military ID
Preparing your car for Shipment
The car you want to ship should be prepared for shipping and this involves:
- If the side mirrors are retractable, fold them inwards to reduce the chances of damage during transportation.
- Check the tires for leaks and fix any leaks that you find.
Military Motorcycle Shipping
You will be responsible for the cost of shipping your motorcycle. This will make you consider conducting a DIY move of the bike. Know that although it looks straightforward, shipping a motorcycle isn’t a walk in the park.
This makes hiring professionals to ship your motorcycle a great idea. You can trust the quality of services they provide and you will also have enough time to report at the new station.
You will need to submit copies of at least, two documents to process the shipping of your vehicle and they include copies of proof of ownership of the motorcycle and military ID.
Preparing your motorcycle for Shipment
It is easy to get your motorcycle ready for shipment and it involves:
- Combing through the bike and taking pictures of every scratch or dent it has.
- Screwing down bolts to ensure things are secure.
While it is possible to move your vehicle yourself, it isn’t the best option. Call 1-800-452-2880 and speak to A-1 Auto Transport for the best shipping option.
