Preparing for a Military Change of Station? Simard Automotive is Here to Help Get Your Vehicle Ready to Ship.

Changes of station are a natural part of life in the military. You may have been brought to Alaska to serve at one of the excellent military bases here, but perhaps you are getting ready to change stations again and you need help shipping your privately owned vehicle (POV).

Shipping Challenges

Dealing with the Vehicle Processing Center can be challenging when preparing to ship your vehicle across the country or overseas to your next station. Because Alaska is outside the contiguous United States, it is considered along with Hawaii and all overseas stations (OCONUS) and that also brings some challenges when shipping your vehicle out of our state. 

Fairbanks Auto Repair & Inspection Services

It helps to have a knowledgeable and experienced automotive shop on your side like Simard Automotive in Fairbanks, AK. We have helped numerous service men and women (both active and retired) with vehicle processing and shipping. The biggest challenges you will face is if the Vehicle Processing Center (VPC) finds any significant mechanical issues in your vehicle. They may require repairs before the vehicle can be shipped.

Here to Serve You

You can bring your personal car, truck or SUV into Simard Automotive for a thorough vehicle inspection and we can recommend necessary repairs that should help you pass the VPC inspection standards. Or, if you've already had your vehicle inspected and rejected by them, you can bring it to one of our Fairbanks repair shops for professional automotive repairs. We'll get the problems fixed, so you can get your vehicle shipped. We can even help arrange transportation of the vehicle to and from the shipping center as needed.
