When shipping for military purposes there is a little of an inconvenience at times as most of the times, carriers are not allowed on post, therefore soldiers have to organize a meeting point outside post. This can cause a bit of an inconvenience as soldiers run a tight schedule and most of the time may not have someone outside post who they can drop of the car to. Drivers are able to get as close as possible to the location to an open area to assist soldiers with mounting vehicles. There are times when the shipment is hired only to transport military vehicles, when carriers may be allowed inside post, however usually the meeting points are done elsewhere.
California has many military posts and this service has become very common for soldiers looking to go back home, or that have been deployed and need to send their vehicles to their relatives. Another similar scenario is that cars are sold when deployed, and they need to transport them to the new buyers.
Because soldiers handle a very tight schedule, carriers often offer the option to drop off the car at a terminal, this way soldiers don't have to worry about delays or pickups, as they may not always be available. This was, they only have to worry about setting payment beforehand, many carriers also offer military discounts to help out our soldiers.
