Yokota Air Base, Japan Auto Shipping Services By A-1 Auto Transport

Yokota Air Base, Japan is an air force military base owned by the United States and located in Fussa, Japan. It was originally known as Tama Airfield and was initially used to train new military members. However, it became the most important site for the Japanese Air Force during World War II. It is now housing about 14000 military personnel. 

At A-1 Auto Transport, we are proud to assure you of our flexible and reliable car shipping services to Yokota Air Base in Japan. We operate all year round and ship automobiles to different parts of the world. We also offer discounts to active and retired members of any branch of the military including Air Force, Marines, Navy, and Coast Guard. 


Shipping to a Base in the OCONUS Area 

Yokota Air Base is located in Japan which is outside the United States' Continental Territory (OCONUS). Due to this fact, the military would cover the cost of shipping your privately owned vehicle, personal belongings, and containers. 

Our shipping network at A-1 Auto Transport is global and we would help take your OCONUS Shipment to the next level.

What Does Military Car Shipping Entail?

Our military car shipping services include guiding you through the whole process. Active and retired members of the military enjoy free shipping of their favorite car to Yokota Air Base because the military would cover the shipping fee. If you would like to ship more cars, you should know that the military only covers the cost of shipping one car. This means that you would be paying import duties for other cars you'd like to ship. 

Below are documents you should make available for the smooth shipping of your car to Yokota Air Base: 

  • A Means of Identification: You need to present a copy of your military ID card issued by the federal or state government. You could also use your driver's license as a means of identification.
  • Vehicle Registration Form: The vehicle should be registered in the name of an active or retired member of the military.
  • A private vehicle shipping document or a commercial equivalent.
  • A proof of POV shipping eligibility.

Furthermore, you must provide information about your pickup base, delivery location, and contact details for emergency purposes. 

How to Prepare Your Car for Shipment

By following the steps listed below, we can guarantee that your car is ready to be shipped: 

  • Wash your car thoroughly. You need to clean the interior of your car for at least 14 days before shipping.
  • Take pictures of your vehicle from different angles. This would help you keep visual documentation of your car's condition before it is shipped.
  • Take note of all the dents and scratches, marks, and discolorations on your car before shipping.

What Does Military Motorcycle Shipping Entail?

The military would only cover the cost of one motorcycle. If you would be shipping another one, you would be the one to take responsibility for its cost. As a military member, you must be able to prove that you own the motorcycle before the military will decide to cover the costs. You must also be able to prove that you are permitted to ship the motorcycle. 


How to Prepare Your Motorcycle for Shipment

To prepare your motorcycle for shipping, follow the following steps: 

  • Drain all fluids such as gasoline, engine oil, or lubricants to reduce leaks while it is being shipped.
  • Ensure to remove or disconnect the battery to prevent electrical sparks or problems.
  • Release some air from the tire to help stabilize the bike while it is being shipped.

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!
