US Coast Guard Base Boston Massachusetts Shipping Services by A-1 Auto Transport

The United States Coast Guard Base of Boston, Massachusetts, supports coast guard operations in New England, New York, and Northern New Jersey. Its resilient efforts have led to rescues within these areas. If you have been posted to this base, your consideration will be to relocate to the location. Do not worry about it because A-1 transport will guide you on how to ship your belongings there. Having your properties with you will make it easier for you to settle down quickly.

Shipping vehicles to CONUS Bases

Arranging for your shipping is easier when you have a clear picture of what is involved. Hence, you understand the necessity of choosing the proper auto transporter to assist you. In addition, your shipping expenses may be catered for by the government because you are a member of the military. Nevertheless, checking your transport office for eligibility information is the ideal thing to do. It is also ideal to start making arrangements for shipping your privately owned vehicle and other items.

Our Military Shipping Options

We move vehicles to the USCG Base Boston, Massachusetts, and other bases. We ship items like: 

  • Cars
  • Suvs
  • Vans
  • Mopeds and
  • Motorcycles

Shipping a Car

Losses incurred on personal shipping are not covered by the government or insurance. So it is wise to engage a professional auto transport agency like A-1 Auto Transport. However, kindly be informed that you will provide certain documents to ensure the transparency of the transaction.

  • A Permanent Change of Station Order. It will serve as proof to claim.
  • A Government-issued Military Identification Card. It will ensure that you are known as military personnel.
  • Proof of ownership for the vehicle to be transported (i.e. your vehicle registration).
  • A permit from your lease agency (strictly for an automobile that is on lease).

Getting Your Car Ready

A vehicle that does not qualify for road use or meet the standards of safety regulations can not be shipped. So you should take the following steps to prepare your vehicle: 

  • Obtain the services of a mechanic to inspect the vehicle for flaws.
  • Wash the outside of your automobile and vacuum the inside thoroughly.
  • Check your vehicle's tires for tire pressure and leaks.
  • Check your vehicle for damage and make a note of it.
  • Check for cracks in the taillights, windscreen, and so forth.
  • To avoid an electrical problem, disconnect the battery.
  • Remove all automotive ornaments and accessories from the vehicle.
  • Remove any loose items from the car.

Shipping a Motorcycle

Similar rules apply between car shipping and military motorcycle shipping. It is important to note that government financial cover is only applicable to one vehicle. Thus, you can only ship an additional motorcycle when you pay for the extra cargo.

Getting your Motorcycle ready

Military motorcycle shipping is also guided by safety regulations. Hence, a motorcycle can only be shipped when it is deemed fit by the auto agency.

  • Check your fuel tank and reduce the amount to less than 14 percent of the tank.
  • Check the motorcycle for leaks and empty the fluids.
  • Wash and clean the motorcycle thoroughly, then turn off the GPS, alarm system, and remove the battery.
  • Remove any loose goods or decorations from the vehicle.
  • Restore any leaking locations on the car.
  • Keep an eye out for slow punctures in the tires.
  • Check the tire pressure to ensure that it is normal.

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!
