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.

Full List of Military Shipping Services We Offer

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.

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

Due to the nature of my work, I must relocate every couple of years to where my company needs me. Because of this, I’ve tested several moving and auto transport companies over the years.

And my 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.

The only time my shipment was delayed was during winter when a snowstorm closed down all the major roads. And they still found an alternative and got my car delivered before roads got unstuck.

When I moved to West Virginia, they picked up my car the very day I called them. I like to think they take special care of me considering all the business I’ve sent them. I’ll continue to support A1 Auto Transport. It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.

You have my full support and recommendation!

I considered selling my car when I moved to Washington. It was old and rusty, but I grew attached to it. So, I called a couple companies to transport it to my new home, but they both fell through.

The first one couldn’t decide on a schedule. He would constantly change the pickup date till I got frustrated and canceled. The second was insufferable, very rude on the phone, even worse in person.

They started picking a part my car asking me why I still have it. If that’s their opinion of my vehicle, how can I trust they’ll take care of it? If something happened midway, why wouldn’t they just blame it on the car instead of paying up?

So, I cancelled this company as well and turned to A1 Auto Transport. From the get go, they were very different from my past options. Their website was very professional and up to date, full of useful information. I requested a quote using their online form, and I got an email response within an hour. Surprisingly fast!

If I didn’t know any better, I would’ve thought they were lacking customers, but the email spoke for itself. In just one email, everything I needed to know was there, including a contact number I could use to get more information or confirm the transport.

I called and got things rolling. I was very pleased with the driver. He followed standard procedure and represented his company well. Can’t remember his name, but props to him!

The car arrived in Washington 6 days later in excellent condition. From what I understand, the transport was delayed a bit by a storm, but since the time window was 4-6 days from the beginning, I don’t really care. You have my full support and recommendation!

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.

After doing some research, I got even more worried reading about all the scams and accidents that can happen. But, I have work to do and couldn’t afford to drive my newly purchased Mini Cooper all the way to Virginia.

Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport. They are very good at their jobs. I spent more than an hour drilling Joe with various questions, and he never once lost his patience. He saw I was interested, so he bore with me until I was satisfied. The driver was also very courteous and my car was intact on arrival. I couldn’t have asked for more.

By the way, the price we first agreed on stayed the same. There were no delays or unexpected “surprises.” I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10!

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10! We chose them to move our car from California to Vermont, since we needed professionals.

We were abroad during the transport, so the transport was a bit tricky. The driver had to pick it up from storage on short notice and get it to its destination within at most 10 days. I was happy to note it arrived sooner. We got it 3 days early, right when we got home to pick it up. It made getting around way easier. Awesome service!
