Pentagon-Army Auto Shipping Services by A-1 Auto Transport
The Pentagon is the headquarters of the United States Department of Defense.
Located in Arlington County, Virginia, it is near Washington D.C. The Pentagon was constructed at an accelerated rate during World War II. The Pentagon is the biggest office building in the world occupying over 150 acres. The army has offices and sections in the building.
If you are posted to the Pentagon, you might be wondering how to get your vehicle to Virginia, especially if you are currently stationed far away from there. The solution lies in hiring an auto transport company. A-1 Auto Transport is a shipping company that offers shipping services for military officers posted to the Pentagon.
Shipping to a Base in the CONUS Area
Pentagon-Army is located in Virginia which is in the United States. this means that the military isn’t going to be sponsoring your move to the location. They also won’t be paying for the shipping of your vehicle to the Pentagon.
Still, there are a few exceptions to every rule and this rule isn’t different. A few officers under certain conditions will still get sponsorship for their vehicles. Discuss this with your transportation officer to know if you are eligible for an exception.
While you sort all this out, you will do yourself a world of good to get shipping quotes from shipping companies early to help you draft a budget.

Military Car Shipping
The military isn’t most likely paying for the shipping of your vehicle. You are left to figure that out on your own. You might be considering driving to the Pentagon. While you can do that, it will be stressful and might even make you arrive late.
The better option is to hire a company to ship your car for you while you fly to your new posting. This way you arrive on time and you will undergo less stress as well.
Keep in mind that the Pentagon will have rules surrounding the kind of vehicles allowed in the area. Ensure your car meets the stated specifications.
There are documents you will need as you process your shipping and they are:
- Military Identification
- Proof that you or a family member owns the car
Preparing your car for Shipment
Getting the car ready for shipping is important and it involves:
- Checking the pressure in all the tires and reducing them slightly while fixing any leaks that are present.
- Checking all bolts and screws and tightening those that are loose including the screws holding the plate numbers.
Military Motorcycle Shipping
Shipping your motorcycle will be your full responsibility because you are heading to a CONUS area. Riding the bike to the Pentagon or transporting it in your truck might seem like a great idea but if you aren’t experienced in any of these you might damage your motorcycle.
That is why hiring an auto transport company to ship the motorcycle is a better option. You get to arrive on time and not stress about all the logistics of transporting the bike.
A few documents will be required and they include proof that you or a family member owns the bike and your military ID.
Preparing your motorcycle for Shipment

- Going through the bike and documenting every scratch or dent on it.
- Checking the tires and fixing any leaks that you find.
