A-1 Auto Transport Schofield Barracks/Fort Shafter Shipping Services

Schofield Barracks is a military installation that is part of Fort Shafter.

Both bases are in Hawaii but Schofield Barracks is nestled in the Waianae Mountain range on the island of Oahu. Fort Shafter, on the other hand, has its headquarters in Honolulu, Hawaii. Both Bases are 17 miles from each other. They are home to the United States Army Pacific.

Being posted to this great area might present a lot of opportunities. Your mind might not be on these opportunities though because you are trying to figure out ways to get your vehicle to the area. Well, there is no need to fret A-1 Auto Transport ships vehicles to Schofield Barracks/Fort Shafter.

OCONUS Base Shipping

Schofield Barracks/Fort Shafter is in Hawaii which is part of the United States. However, it isn’t part of the Continental United States making it an OCONUS area. The government is supposed to pay for the shipping of POVs to the Fort.

If, however, you don’t process this sponsorship, you will end up paying yourself. So, meet your transportation officer and get the details on how to get the military sponsorship for your vehicle.

You will still need to get a shipping company that offers shipping services to the fort by yourself. Get quotes from them so you know what kind of bill to expect.

Military Shipping Options

We ship various vehicles under our military shipping services like:

  • Trucks
  • Cars
  • Motorcycles

Shipping a Car to a Military Base

The government should be getting your vehicle to the base for you. While you can use the designated military movers, you might face delays due to traffic caused by various officers being deployed.

A better shipping option is to contact a third-party auto shipping company that ships POVs. This way you get the convenience of shipping and still get government sponsorship.

Schofield Barracks/Fort Shafter will have rules surrounding the kinds of vehicles that are allowed on base. Examine the rules to know if your vehicle is eligible to be on base.

In addition, as you figure all this out, get the following documents ready:

  • Your PCS
  • Proof that you or a family member owns the car to be shipped
  • Military ID
  • Necessary forms like the IAL Pre shipping instruction form.

Readying your car for shipment

The car you want to ship has to be ready for the journey. To prepare it do the following things:

  • Wash the car properly with a detergent or whatever soap you are comfortable with.
  • Check the engine bay for any leaks from the radiator or engine. Fix any leaks you find.

Shipping a Motorcycle to a Military Base

While the military is still going to pay for the shipping of your motorbike because it is heading to an OCONUS area, how you plan the shipping is important.

Using military movers might delay the shipping of your motorbike and eventually complicate things. For a smoother experience, you are better off hiring a motorcycle shipping company that ships vehicles for military personnel.

In the process of doing this, you will need copies of proof that you or a family member owns the bike and your military ID.

Readying your motorcycle for shipment

Getting the motorcycle ready for shipping is easy. All you have to do is:

  • Wash the motorbike thoroughly and rinse with clean water.
  • Check the engine and peripherals to ensure that fluids like coolants and engine oil aren’t leaking.

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... Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport.
