Portsmouth Naval Shipyard Auto Shipping Services by A-1 Auto Transport

Portsmouth Naval Shipyard is located in Kittery, Maine near Portsmouth City. It's a United States Navy shipyard that happens to be the oldest functioning shipyard in the country. The shipyard is known to be very cautious of the health of its occupants, so you can rest assured of great medical services.

It's a fantastic Naval shipyard, and you'll be happy if you've just been assigned here. A-1 Auto Transport can assist you in shipping your vehicle to your new Naval installation in Kittery, Maine.

Don't be concerned about the cost; our services are very adaptable and affordable. We have a high level of credibility and dependability. You can read reviews from previous clients.


Shipping to a Base in the CONUS Area

The Portsmouth Naval Shipyard is a Naval base within the CONUS area; the United States government does not fund moves to CONUS designated areas. This implies that if you have been assigned to this base, you are entirely responsible for your move, but you may be eligible for other grants and benefits.

A-1 Auto Transport recognizes that the cost of shipping services can be prohibitively expensive; therefore, we provide services that are both high in quality and within your budget. Our shipping service is both inexpensive and cost-effective. Whatever you want to ship, we can help you get it to your new military base.

Military Car Shipping

Do you know that with the help of A-1 Auto Transport you can easily ship your car to the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard? However, there are some steps you must take to ensure that there are no complications that would result in a delay in the shipping process. You must also complete your vehicle's documentation and maintenance. If at all possible, inquire about how the center operates, particularly about vehicle shipping. Check and confirm that you have all of the necessary documents so that there are no issues that could cause your move to be delayed. These documents are as follows:

  • Legal consent from the vehicle owner if it is a leased or borrowed vehicle.
  • Proof that you or your dependent owns the vehicle.
  • Documents issued by the US government that identify you as a military officer.

Preparing your car for Shipment

Below are tips to help you in preparing your bike for shipping:

  • Take the car to a mechanic to perform all the necessary checks and maintenance on your car.
  • Wash your vehicle thoroughly inside and outside till it's sparkling clean.
  • Check the pressure of your tires, make sure they are not overinflated or underinflated.

Military Motorcycle Shipping

When it comes to providing military personnel with special relocation benefits, the government only covers one vehicle. This means that even if you are eligible for government-sponsored relocation, you will need to make additional arrangements for other vehicles, including your motorcycle. There are numerous shipping companies to choose from, but you should look for one that can provide safety. You can also ship your motorcycle to Portsmouth Naval Shipyard using the A-1 Auto Transport shipping service.

Preparing your motorcycle for Shipment

These tips will help you prepare your motorcycle for shipping:

  • Take the motorcycle to a mechanic to inspect it, all faults should be repaired or documented.
  • Wash the motorcycle very well till it is sparkling clean.
  • Make sure you disable the alarm before shipping.
  • Fragile accessories should be removed and kept separately.

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!
