How to Ship a POV to Guam?
As a member of the military, you’re no stranger to relocations. Military men and women are often given orders to relocate from one base to the next without much notice given at all. It is just the nature of the military and they must send their soldiers wherever they are needed at a moment’s notice. This is where overseas transport services come in handy. If you were just issued to relocate to Guam, consider shipping your POV there too. There are many great overseas military car shipping companies to consider. Find a transporter with a great reputation, state licensing and all the shipping services your desire.
The Process of Shipping a POV Overseas
Once you receive your orders and know where you’re being sent to in Guam, start searching for the best military car transporters nearby. They should have history in dealing with the transport process for military POVs overseas. Shipping a military car requires the proper permission. Your vehicle should be listed under your ownership on your orders from the military if you wish to send a private vehicle to another location.
Start preparing for your POV’s transport immediately after scheduling its transport date with an overseas car shipping company. Auto transporters expect their customers to get the car ready for delivery to any location no matter how near or far it must be delivered. You should only need about one day to get the car ready according to standard. Your responsibilities may include draining fluids, cleaning and having professional maintenance performed. Preparing the car lessens the risks involved, keeping the vehicles and employees safer.
Since you’re shipping your POV to Guam, make sure to give the embassy a call for all current tax rates and import policy info. They’ll give you precise percentage rates for all the taxes and duties regarding the import of a military issued vehicle. Pay these before the day of transport so you can receive approval for the car to ship. They will also tell you how to better prepare for the military car’s transport.
