    Advertisements

    why is your vehicle 5 hours away though? did you originally store it there, was it shipped there? If it's due to the military causing it, you may be able to get reimbursed, but they may only give you a per diem instead of covering the plane tickets.

    well we are going to great lakes, IL and we are shipping our car through Matson and the closest place they have is pontoon beach which is about 4.5-5 hours away so technically it is because of our move that it is going there.

    I can find that answer out for you today since I'll be going to JPPSO/PSD in about 2 hours to set up our move.

    If you are pcsing they will not rememburse you to travel to get your personal car...We had to drive to middle of Mass. to drop our sebring off before we moved here and they didnt give us "money" to drive 2 hours both ways. But I may be wrong.

    They paid for us to take our car, but then we also flew out of LAX after we dropped the car off.

    Its because you moved overseas...They I believe in most places allow you one car...But if you are moving within the country you are on your own...We have three cars, but one is at home, we have two here...We always pay to ship one of them.
