Alaska Auto Transport Rates
One of the biggest factors in the cost of your auto transport is selecting open or enclosed transport. Auto dealerships safely receive vehicles every day on open car trailers. To save money we highly recommend this option, unless of course you are shipping an irreplaceable luxury, high end sports car, or antique vehicle. Other factors that impact shipping cost include the size, weight and type of car or truck. The body type such as full-size car, off-road vehicle, full-size crossover, mid-size car, sports coupe, and compact car you are shipping can also affect your shipping cost. Usually the larger the vehicle the higher the shipping rate. If your vehicle has any non-standard accessories that have altered its dimensions they can also increase the cost of shipping. Below are some of the accessories that can increase cost.
- Side steps
- Nerf bars
- Over sized tires
- Trailer hitch
- Running lights
- Front bumper guards
- Grill guards
- Running boards
- 4 wheel drive
Alaska auto transport rates are calculated per mile and these rates change depending on the cost of fuel. Often you can find a lower rate by driving your vehicle to a shipping terminal and picking the vehicle up at another shipping terminal near your delivery address. Terminal to terminal service can save you a lot of money but if you need or prefer the convenience of door to door service make sure that your pick-up and drop-off locations are both accessible by a full-sized semi-tractor trailer. If the car or truck you are transporting is not operational this will significantly increase your rate. You must inform the shipping company if your auto is inoperable. The time of year also affects the rates of the auto transport shipping carriers, summer is high season and the rates are increased. The method of payment you choose to use for your vehicle delivery can sometimes affect your rate and some companies prefer COD. Most carriers accept COD and credit cards. Please check with the company first if you desire to pay with a check.

Alaska Auto Shipping Process
Careful preparation is the most effective way to prevent any issues with your Alaska vehicle delivery. If your vehicle is inoperable or partially inoperable it can still be shipped although the extra logistics, time, and labor will be reflected in your rate. You MUST inform the carrier of any such defects BEFORE you arrange your shipping schedule. Typically a pick-up driver that arrives without prior knowledge that a vehicle is inoperative will refuse to take possession of that vehicle. Always verify that both your pickup and delivery addresses are accurate. Do not utilize your vehicle as a secondary shipping container. Weight is an important calculation in determining your rate and personal belongings are usually not insured. Also leave no more than a quarter tank of fuel in your vehicle.
When your car or truck is picked up you will be required to complete a bill of lading. It is very important to accurately complete this document. The driver and you will inspect your vehicle and document any damage to the vehicle, such as dents, broken windows, paint scratches, etc. Many drivers will take photos of any damage to protect themselves from false claims. When you or your authorized representative receives your auto at the drop-off location be sure that you, or they, carefully check the entire vehicle prior to signing the bill of lading. Failing to do this can make it very difficult if not impossible to receive compensation for any unfortunate damage. We carefully choose the best auto shipping carriers in the business but should any unexpected issue or problems come up you should definitely report them to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration.
Keeping an open line of communication with your carrier or driver is the best thing you can do to assure a problem free auto shipping experience. Our Alaska auto transport partners will attempt to keep you informed throughout the entire transport process. Our partners typically deliver on-time, however occasionally situations created by road conditions, weather, or other traffic related delays are possible. Staying in contact with your driver will help reduce a lot of stress.
When selecting door to door transport services, local road conditions can impact pickup and delivery times and locations. The majority of auto transports are accomplished by semi-trailers. Big rigs are difficult to maneuver on many roads and streets. Alaska has 31,618 miles of highways and streets with many rural roads and other road conditions that will prevent or limit access for tractor trailer trucks. If the pickup and/or drop off locations have any obstructions that could prevent the truck from accessing the location we recommend you select a different location. This can easily be accomplished by coordinating with the driver. Selecting a shopping plaza or other open area is usually best. Traffic can also impact pickup and/or drop-off schedules. We recommend you check road and traffic conditions for delays. Check here to find current traffic conditions in Alaska. Below are some of the road conditions to consider when selecting a pickup or drop-off location.
