How to Transport a Vehicle for a Deployment Overseas

Every year, thousands of military personnel are deployed overseas. And though a change of station to a foreign country can be exciting, there are some things you just don’t want to give up – like your cars. Fortunately, it doesn’t have to be difficult to transport vehicles overseas, though you’re advised to plan ahead of time. Depending on where you’re going, it will take on average between a week and a month to transport vehicles to your destination.

Go online and do a search for auto shippers that transport vehicles overseas for military personnel, and read what other customers say about them by checking consumer review websites. When you’ve found a company you feel you can trust to transport vehicles to your new station, contact them and request a quote. Be sure to enquire whether they will handle the paperwork for customs, as this is a complicated procedure you have to go through when you transport vehicles overseas. Ask them which companies they work with to transport vehicles in other countries, and check these companies’ credentials so you’re sure your cars will be in good hands. And don’t forget to ask if they have any special deals or discounts for multiple cars.
