I contracted a POV shipment from FT Huachuca to Germany through a shipper recommended by the Army. I used Auto Drive Away in Tucson. The guy said one month at the most for shipping.I went to Bosnia, my wife went to Germany.

Two months later, still no car. I called the guy and asked him why it wasn't there and he said, "there was no time mentioned in the contract". He became hateful and laughed saying "what are you going to do about it, your in Bosnia." I went through all military channels to no avail.

FOUR (4) months later, my car arrived. My non-smoked in vehicle had an ashtray full of cigarette butts, 7 fast food bags in various state of decay, spilled coffe stains on the passenger seat, two cigarette holes burned in the driver's seat, a melted chocolate bar on the shifter console, and it would not even run! I had to tow it to a garage for repairs of the distributor. This guy used my car as his POV and ran it into the ground to the tune of 4 thousand miles. The US ARMY did absolutely nothing to help or rectify this, the JAG corp is useless. DO NOT USE AUTO DRIVEAWAY, THEY WILL RIP YOU OFF, ESPECIALLY SOLDIERS.

#2 Consumer Suggestion

That's a disgrace. *TIP* to others needing private POV shipment...

AUTHOR: Locoserafina - (U.S.A.)

Thats just a bloody disgrace! I was a military wife for almost 18 years, and if you add the years my dad was in the military I have 36 years worth of military moves under my belt (24 moves before I was 20.....). If you must ship a POV on your own, here's a suggestion. Rather than get a suggestion from the transportation office, do a little digging and find out which shipping company (at whichever port your POV would go out of if the military was paying) has a contract with the military. If your transpo office arranges for inland delivery to the port from you r base, just hang out near the stack lot till they come to pick up with the trucks. Ask the driver, or jot down the name of the company on the door. No name...jot down the truck ID numbers and call DOT, commercial trucking is listed there. Pay whoever the military is paying to move your vehicle. TELL THEM YOU ARE ACTIVE DUTY WITH AN OUT_OF_POCKET vehicle ship. They want to keep the military contract so it's likely they will treat your vehicle reasonably in order not to jeopardize the contract. NO GUARRANTEE but your odds go way up.
