USCG Los Angeles-Long Beach Base Auto Shipping Services By A-1 Auto Transport

Base LA/LB of the United States Coast Guard (USCG) is in San Pedro, California. It assists the Coast Guard in Southern California. 

Moving a vehicle to this base should be straightforward, but not everyone has done so before. A-1 Auto Transport will assist you with your auto shipping needs whether it is your first time sending a vehicle or you have shipped many times previously.


Shipping To a Base In The CONUS Area 

Because the USCG sector LA-Long Beach base is located inside the Continental United States Area, the government will not provide any sort of sponsorship if you want auto shipping to this site because they only sponsor auto-shipments for military personnel traveling outside of the United States. 

There are, however, some unique circumstances in which you may be qualified for a sponsorship, which you should properly examine with your transportation manager. 

Handling a PCS while thinking about how to move your vehicles is best done early because it allows you to estimate how much your relocation will cost and choose the best auto shipping business as soon as feasible.

Full List of Military Shipping Services We Offer

We can assist you in transporting a range of automobiles to your base. These are their names:


Military Car Shipping

If you reside a considerable distance from the base, driving there may be a stressful experience; therefore, employing the services of expert auto shipping firms may be your best chance for a stress-free journey. You will arrive early, and your vehicle will be brought to your base. 

Take your time looking for an experienced and respected firm that will offer you quality shipping service at a reasonable price, rather than settling for the cheapest vehicle shipping quote you can find. 

When transferring your automobile to USCG LA/LB Base, you must adhere to its unique set of rules and regulations. You should go over these rules with your transportation manager to make sure your vehicle isn't in breach of any of them.

You'll need a few things ready when working on your auto shipping. Here they are: 

  • Documentation demonstrating that your car is roadworthy.
  • A military personnel's proof of vehicle ownership

Preparing Your Car for Shipment

When preparing your vehicle for auto-shipment, there are a few things you should do. They are as follows: 

  • Remove any personal items from the vehicle.
  • Carry out any required maintenance.
  • Check to see if your vehicle's documentation is current.

Military Motorcycle Shipping

Only service members departing the United States are eligible for government-sponsored motorbike shipping. If you are transferring to USCG LA/LB Base and shipping your motorcycle, you will not get government sponsorship or help unless there are unique circumstances. Check with your transportation manager to determine if you are eligible.

Riding your bike to the station is a possibility if your base is close by, but what if your base is far away? Enlisting the services of third-party auto shipping firms is the best alternative in this instance.

If you are transporting more than one vehicle, you can save money by using the A-1 Auto Transport discount to ship your vehicle.

You must have a government-issued means of identity as well as evidence of ownership of the motorcycle to transport it.


Preparing Your Motorcycle for Shipment

Here's what you should do to prepare for motorcycle shipping: 

  • All fluids from your motorcycle, including gasoline, coolant, and engine oil, should be drained.
  • Unplug or remove the battery.

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!
