Auto Shipping for Military Personnel
If you’re looking for a car shipping job, you can work for an auto transport company that is responsible for shipping the cars and trucks that belong to members of the military. This is a job that is taken on by both standard auto transport corporations and by private auto transport corporations who only ship military cars and trucks.
The people that serve in the military are often moving from one place to another. Most of the time, the military will take care of their moving expenses, and will send them by plane or military transport to their new destination. However, the military families must make sure that their cars arrive where they will be living as well. These military auto transport companies either ship or drive the military family’s cars to their new destination.
Jobs with the auto transport companies that transport the vehicles owned by military families are similar to the jobs of people who work for regular auto transport companies. However, a deep understanding and respect for military people is usually required to work in these special companies. Often, a military auto transport company will work exclusively with various branches of the military or with various military bases.
The second type of military trucking jobs revolve around shipping the cars and trucks that the military uses for training or combat. Most of the time, this shipping is done by the actual military themselves. However, in some situations, the military will contract out the shipping of certain cars, trucks, or other autos. When a shipping company is contracted to move the military vehicles, they must be sure that they are able to do so in a much quicker manner than they would move the cars and trucks of civilians. Most of the time, the military needs to have their autos transported much more quickly than civilians do.
With both of the military auto shipping jobs, the company will either drive the vehicles to the new site, or they will be transported by truck.
If a person is working for a company that drives autos from one site to another, they need to have impeccable driving records, be well licensed, and most likely pass tests to make sure that they know what they are doing. They might also need to transport items, pets, or even people in the cars that they are driving, so they will also undergo training to deal with these types of situations. In the military auto shipping businesses that deal with trucks, the drivers must be certified to drive the trucks that will haul the autos, and must also have perfect driving records.
Often, military auto transport jobs are paid for by the military itself. Therefore, many workers feel that by working for these transport jobs, they are also doing their part and serving their country by doing the work that they do best.
There are also military auto transport jobs that are found within the Army. For these jobs, a person must be a certified solider, and will be chosen to work in the military auto sector of their particular branch of the armed forces. Aside from being in the Army, the qualifications to work with transporting autos will be the same for Army based jobs as they would be for private sector jobs.
