How Much Does It Cost to Ship a Car to/from Alaska?

Interested in understanding the cost of shipping your car to or from Alaska? Here are the key factors influencing your Alaska car shipping rate:

  1. Distance: The length of your journey is a crucial factor impacting costs, serving as a significant determinant for your quote.

  2. Locations: Specific cities matter, with considerations such as local traffic conditions, proximity to major highways, and ease of pickup/drop-off influencing pricing variations.

  3. Logistics Challenges: Given Alaska’s unique geographical considerations, the logistics of transportation may present additional challenges, potentially affecting costs.

  4. Vehicle Details: The dimensions and weight of your car play a substantial role in determining the auto transport rate.

  5. Seasonality: Prices fluctuate throughout the year, influenced by the demand for car shipping. More active seasons might lead to slightly higher costs, depending on the chosen route.

For the most accurate Alaska auto transport rate, provide the following details:

  • Your car’s specifications and type
  • Origin and destination cities within Alaska
  • If possible, flexibility with shipping dates
  • Preferred trailer type (open or enclosed)

By supplying this information, you’ll receive a personalized car shipping rate tailored to meet the specific challenges of transporting a vehicle to or from Alaska.

Enclosed Auto Transport to Alaska

No matter what the season, the Alaska climate brings interesting conditions. The snow, ice, and high winds encompass much of Alaska’s year are fierce and clear reasons to ship your new or used car to Alaska in an enclosed carrier. But with invasive bugs, wildlife, and heavy winds blowing around debris, the summer months aren’t all that kind either. Protecting your vehicle by shipping to, from, and within Alaska in an enclosed car carrier is a wise investment.

The safest way to transport your car to Alaska is within an enclosed auto transport. There are two options for shipping your car via enclosed auto transport:

  • Soft-Sided Enclosed Auto Transport – The heavy canvas covering the carriers protects your car from wind-blown debris, rain, sleet, snow, and other elements.
  • Hard-Sided Enclosed Auto Transport – In addition to the advantages of soft-sided carriers, hard-sided carriers offer protection for your car in the unlikely event your car is exposed to possible damage during transportation.

Open Auto Transport to Alaska

Thinking about using open auto transport for shipping your car to Alaska? Open carriers are the same double-decker carriers your car dealer uses and are the cheapest option to ship your car.  Furthermore, your car will be secured with state-of-the-art equipment and arrive at its destination within seven days of departure. Open auto transport is a secure way of shipping your car, protecting your vehicle from road vibration, and more on a long journey.

Heavy Equipment and Lowboy Carrier Shipping

With so much distance between towns and so many remote communities, the Alaska population relies on lowboy carriers to move heavy equipment, snowplows and equipment, and other road and building construction vehicles. Number 1 Auto Transport’s lowboy carriers are ideal for moving Alaska’s bulldozers, dump trucks, and other large vehicles.

Transporting heavy equipment is a serious business. Lowboy carriers can handle oversized loads and high gross tonnage. Number 1 Auto Transport’s drivers are especially skilled in moving heavy equipment to job sites and navigating busy highways with these unique loads.

How to Ship a Car to Alaska?

The best way to answer the question of “How to ship my car to Alaska” is to show you how we operate our auto shipping business. We understand that car owners in Alaska won’t trust just any car shipping company to move their vehicle across states – they value experience and reputation. Here’s how we do it:

  1. First, once your order is placed, we’ll initiate the process of moving a car to Alaska. This typically occurs within a week. We’ll keep you informed with important details, such as the time and date of pickup, tracking number, and the truck driver’s contact information.
  2. Next, the truck driver will contact you to confirm delivery plans. All Number 1 Auto drivers are committed to treating all vehicles as if they were their own, prioritizing the protection of your car against any damage during delivery. Before the driver departs, you’ll sign and receive a Bill of Lading.
  3. Finally, upon the vehicle’s arrival in Alaska, both you and the driver will inspect it for any damage. This is also the time when you will sign the final inspection report. It’s that simple!
