How does military PCS vehicle shipping work?
Military PCS vehicle shipping is entitled to certain members assigned to a new duty station. Only one personal operating vehicle (POV) may be shipped at government expense, according to the Department of Defense. Alternate port requests must get approval from the Military Traffic Management Command (MTMC).
Does the military ship your car for free?
The military may ship your car for free if you’re an a) active member of the military and b) have received permanent change of station (PCS) orders. The government only pays for one personal operating vehicle (POV) to be shipped, according to the Department of Defense.

Yes, we can. Our customer support team will work closely with you to meet your exact specifications, ensuring a stress-free shipment.
Is there an extra fee for modifications on my vehicle?
Yes, there may be additional charges for military PCS vehicle shipping if your car is modified. Modified vehicles often take up more space on the carrier’s truck and require additional equipment accommodations

Yes, it is. The carrier’s cargo insurance provides coverage from transport damage. Additionally, we have contingent cargo insurance.
Are personal items in the cars insured?
No, personal items in the car are not insured, even during car shipping for military personnel. It is recommended that you remove all valuables, important documents, or hard to replace belongings prior to pick up.
How long will it take to ship my car?
When you place an order, you will receive an estimated transit time for your shipment. This will give you a delivery window for when your car will be delivered. Transit times depend on moving distance. With each delivery being unique, it is possible that your car will be delivered faster than the estimated transit time provided.
