Does the Army Ship Your Car?
If this is your first time moving your car for a military assignment, then you may be stressed about how this process works. Let us tell you right here and now that it doesn’t have to be that daunting, of course, if you get help from the right company.
The issue more often than not is that you will receive your PCS (Permanent Change of Station) order at a short notice and need to find a company that has extensive experience and can help you arrange the shipment of your POV (Privately Owned Vehicle) quality and smoothly.
At Cross Country Car Shipping, we can do all that. Here are the steps you usually have to follow to have your POV shipped.
Does the Army Ship My Car for Free?
The short answer is that it depends. If you are an active military member and have received a permanent change of station order, then more often than not, the military will pay the cost of having your personal vehicle shipped to the new location. You will have to check with the Department of Defense to see what the exact rules and regulations are and if you qualify for free shipment. Keep in mind that you may not be able to qualify for these entitlements if you need to ship more than one car.
Make Sure You Comply with the Requirements for POV Shipping
To be able to have your car shipped, then the vehicle would have to:
- It needs to be operational and legal on the highway.
- You will need to get written consent from a third party if the POV is leased.
- The vehicle must have at least four wheels or more, so you can’t transport your bike or motorcycle.
- You need to be an active military member to qualify for POV shipping.
