Shipping A Car Overseas For Military Members

How to Ship A Car Overseas For Military Members?

In this blog post, we explore the process of shipping a privately owned vehicle overseas, as well as the options you have available when doing so. It’s very important to understand the intricacies of shipping a vehicle overseas, as there are many laws, taxes, and regulations that apply, as well as the procedural steps you’ll need to take as a member of the military. Some of the more common questions are answered below and we encourage readers to call us with questions that are not addressed here.

What limitations & restrictions should I know about? Some countries do have requirements that limit the types of vehicles that may be brought in. Generally, these restrictions are based on either the age of the vehicle, the engine displacement, and in a few parts of the world, which side of the vehicle the steering wheel is on. For more information on this topic, contact your Personal Property Officer.

What documents are required to ship a vehicle overseas? There are a few documents that you must have in order to ship a POV internationally. A valid government ID is required, as are your official orders and proof of ownership (a legal copy of the title in your name). If the car has a lien or is being leased, appropriate authorization from the lien holder or leasing company is also required.

 Will the government pay for my POV to be shipped overseas? In some cases, yes, the government will pay for shipping a POV. However, those cases are rather rare and certain criteria must be met in order to qualify. For OCONUS POV shipments, authorization is based on whether or not the transport provides some level of benefit to the government. If you are unsure if you quality, you should check with your nearest vehicle processing center (VPC).

 If you have questions about researching or working with commercial auto transport companies, the section below will provide some insight as to how to go about finding a reliable option.

Addition To An Experienced Shipper

Guide To Shipping A POV With A Commercial Shipper.

Experience Counts - As with any service, experience counts and this goes doubly so when shipping to another country. Perhaps even more so when you factor in the military element--you should find an auto transporter that not only knows their way around international shipments but also provides POV shipping on a regular basis.

 Comparing companies - In addition to an experienced shipper, you’ll also want to consider the level of service provided, as well as the cost. In terms of service, that can best be assessed by calling the office of a prospective company and asking a few questions. They should be happy to answer all your questions and provide you with a free price quote.

 Discounts - Many overseas auto shippers offer discounts to members of the military, but they are not always advertised! When calling companies to compare what they offer, be sure to ask if they have such a program!

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

You have my full support and recommendation!

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!

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