Depending on what transport company you use, transporting your vehicle to and from Alaska can either be extremely difficult or extremely easy. Any auto transporter worth their salt can offer you an Alaska transport service, but that doesn't necessarily mean they'll do the job right. That's why it's important to select an experienced auto transporter to set up your arrangements for Alaskan auto transport.
Selecting an experienced transporter for your Alaskan auto transport is what will make the difference between a job done poorly and a job done well. Even the smallest detail overlooked could turn your cost storage fees, deposit loses, delays, and so forth. Thus, you should ideally make reservations for car shipping to Alaska with a specialist. American Auto Transport has just such a specialist on duty from 9:00am to 6:30pm from Monday through Friday.

Preparing your vehicle for transport into or out of Alaska can be a little bit confusing. One universal rule for all port-to-port shipments to and from Alaska is that your gas tank must ¼ of the way filled. In other cases, what is allowable and what isn't is a bit more dubious. For example, personal effects may be transported inside the vehicle in some cases, and in others they may not.
Again, this is why it's important to speak to our Alaskan transport expert to know precisely what is and is not acceptable procedure for your particular case. Violations of protocol may result in delayed shipments, extra storage fees, forfeiture of deposit, etc. Call American Auto Transport at (866) 327-7863 and speak to our resident Alaska expert about making reservations for Alaskan auto transport.
