Alaska vehicle shippingAlaska, or America’s Icebox as it’s also known, is connected with the mainland via a single highway, the Alcan (Alaska-Canada) Highway. It stretches more than 1,390 miles, starting in Dawson Creek, British Columbia, and terminating in Delta Junction, AK. 

USTrans Delivers Top-Rated Car Shipping in Alaska

Along its route, the AlCan is intersected by several major Canadian highway networks. This situation is perfect for operating a car shipping company in Alaska.

Many parts of Alaska are not interconnected by road, which can make navigating or delivering major supplies quite challenging. It’s also a reason for there being few car shipping companies in Alaska, but it’s not something that deters We relish the challenge and this makes it possible to provide relatively low-cost vehicle shipping in Alaska and beyond.

The Cost of Car Shipping in Alaska      

Auto shipping services in Alaska are slightly more expensive than in many other states. This is because a carrier has to cover at least 1,390 miles and the journey can take several days to complete.

However, while the price of car shipping is higher, it’s the only relatively low-cost option. You do have alternatives, such as car ferries from ports on the West coast, but they tend to be more perilous for your vehicle. The salt in the air and sea spray during the crossing can be very damaging.

A car shipping company in Alaska has to take into account various factors when working out your shipping quote. They include:

  • Overall distance
  • Road network availability
  • Time of year (you can expect the shipping process to take longer during the winter)
  • Prevailing market prices
  • Current workload and available transporters     

Auto Transport to or from Juneau

Juneau is Alaska’s capital city but it’s only accessible by sea. It is also the administrative center of Alaska, but because of the difficulties with access, it’s not as popular a destination as Anchorage.

Juneau might not be on the road network, but we won’t let that put us off. We can provide a specialized car shipping and delivery service to the city, although it does take longer than standard cross-country transport.

The team at USTrans has been providing timely and low-cost auto shipping services to and from Juneau for many years. Check-in with our customer support team for availability and your personalized quote.
