POV storage is an entitlement for Marines E-5 and below deploying that do NOT receive BAH. The Marine will need Current Registration, Current Proof of Insurance, Valid Driver's License, Military ID, copy of RED report from MOL, and no personal effects in the vehicle. The Marine will show up to PE&BC at either 0800 or 1300, Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Tuesday and Thursday is 0800 only. Vehicles will be stored/retrieved at no other time. A tool will be needed to disconnect the battery.

Unit Deployment storage is an entitlement for Marines E-5 and below living in the barracks NOT receiving BAH. The unit will appoint a Unit Representative to handle all correspondence with PE&BC. The Unit Rep must be a SNCO or Officer. They will need to contact the PE&BC office for templates of the Pickup Authorization letter, Unit Representative Appointment letter, Unit Representative Responsibilities, and a copy of the roster. The first two forms require the signature of the Commanding Officer or anyone with By Direction authority. Once these forms have been filled out the Unit Rep will physically bring them in Monday through Friday from 0730-1600 to set up for the Pickup or Delivery of his/her Marines’ Personal Effects.

Lost luggage comes from the local airports, San Diego International Airport, Los Angeles International Airport, Orange County International Airport, and Ontario International Airport. Lost luggage is turned into PE&BC during normal working hours. PE&BC will immediately contact the owner using the tags on the luggage or the Base Locator. The owner is the only one authorized to sign and pick up the luggage, unless he/she authorizes an agent to pick up the luggage for him/her.
