The JBLM Privately Owned Vehicle (POV) resale lot currently consists of 30 numbered spaces. These parking spaces constitute the only authorized public vehicle resale area on JBLM. Unit parking areas, or other public lots, are not authorized resale areas.

Authorized personnel desiring to use the JBLM Vehicle Resale Lot will report to the Northwest Adventure Center, 8050 NCO Beach Rd, with appropriate state registration and proof of insurance documentation. Vehicle owners displaying proper state and post registration documents and proof of insurance will be issued a JBLM Resale Lot Permit with an expiration date of 14 days from the date of issue.
