How much does it cost to ship a car to Alaska?

The cost to ship a car depends on several factors. Many people often think that car shipping rates depend on distance only, or maybe on the type of vehicle. However, this is not the case.

Prices are very much affected by the fluctuations of the auto transport market.

The cost could go up or down based on supply and demand situation (seasonality), vehicle make and model, type of carrier you choose, whether the car is running or not and of course the total distance. For an accurate car shipping quote to Alaska please request one on our website or call our logistics team.

Shipping a non-running car drives the price up due to additional equipment. Remote areas of the country also cost more.

Corsia rep (Elena) was very proactive. Helped ship a car from CA to GA. She checked in with me via email quote and several phone calls to find me the best possible quote for the fastest available service. After several communications, Corsia was able to schedule a vehicle pickup the next day. The driver communicated well, and the vehicle arrived in final destination faster than we expected in perfect condition. I highly recommend using Corsia's reliable, efficient service.

Thanks, Corsia! Pickup was so clean, efficient, and wonderful -- my only recommendation is to make sure you schedule it during the day so you can fully review the car in the daylight. Drop off was equally wonderful, and the whole trip went down without a hitch (pun intended!). Seriously, Corsia delivered my Jeep from CT to California with no issues or bumps in the road!

High five's all around! Corsia was highly recommended by a friend in the automobile industry. We needed to transport a cargo van from Seattle to Florida. We contacted Corsia who quickly arranged transport within just a few days. Communication was outstanding! Just a few email confirmations and we were all set. Mike was great and arrived right on time and delivered to Florida on schedule. Tip-avoid the hornets nest of auto brokers on line and just contact Corsia for a truly great experience!

Corsia Memphis to LA, mid-size SUV. I looked at 4 different companies amd Corsia was the most responsive of them. While being responsive, they were not unduly aggressive: when I indicated that I need to wait a month before making a decision they stopped contacting me and only came back with a reminder when I really needed it. Once I decided to engage Corsia they found me a transport within two days and the car was delivered (from Memphis to LA) in another two days. I had a truly positive experience.

Working with Corsia Logistics was a great experience. Working with Corsia Logistics was wonderful. They were able to find a driver right away to transport our car. They were in constant communication as to when the car was getting picked up and dropped off. The driver also communicated with me as to when he would arrive. I would highly recommend Corsia Logistics.

Excellent Organization Corsia was an excellent company to work with while I transferred my car across the US. A friend of mine suggested I use them as they had been very organized and trustworthy with her own car. I researched a few different place but decided to go with Corsia and I'm so glad I did! Any questions I had throughout the process they answered quickly and clearly. I would definitely use them again in the future and recommend them for others to use.

Looking for a logistics company, to ship my car, from California to Illinois,my first search, then Corsia showed up, skeptical. Call and a very friendly secretary: Elena. She guided me through, I scheduled and as she explained, all when smooth as scheduled Very happy I did the right choice. I'll recommend this great Company to anyone that is thinking to relocate a vehicle. Thanks Corsia logistics for your honesty and professionalism!

Corsia has been amazing. Their prices are really competitive but more importantly their customer service has been 5-Star. Elena followed up with me every step of the way, making sure there was no miscommunication between me & the driver. We are using them to ship a 2nd vehicle & would not hesitate to use them again!

I have recently used Corsia for long time family car with sentimental value that was moved I have recently used Corsia for shipment of my vehicle from Oregon to Arizona by recommendation from other family member who also used Corsia in the past. I am very pleased on the service and the communication throughout shipment. Ken was my direct contact and kept me informed along the move The car was picked up and delivered as communicated. I did use a enclosed mover and the driver was also clean cut professional and treated car as his own. I would definitely recommend Corsia again with the experience I have had. Thank you. T

How long does it take to ship a car to Alaska?

The time to transport a car from or to Alaska depends. From the Midwest (Chicago for example) to the port takes about 5 to 7 days. Then from the port it takes another 6 - 7 days to deliver to Anchorage or Fairbanks.

Thus, it very much depends on your vehicle’s exact location. If it is a remote town that would take longer to schedule a carrier to take it to the port because fewer trucks are willing to go off the main road to pick-up a car. In some cases it could take about a month to deliver a car to Alaska. It is always best to call our logistics experts to discuss your options and shipping time.

What type of insurance do I get when shipping a car to Alaska?

Your vehicle is fully insured while on the truck. Every carrier has a mandatory cargo insurance we always check before reserving a truck. We only work with the highest safety rated carriers.

While your vehicle is on the vessel, a limited liability is in effect. This type of policy protects against damages from the time the cargo leaves the port until it reaches the port in Alaska. The limited liability insurance will cover any damages sustained to your vehicle during transport, not to exceed the market value of the car.

What land auto transport services does Corsia offer?

Corsia Logistics provides the following car shipping services:

by carrier type: open and enclosed trailer

by time frame: standard and expedited delivery

Choosing a carrier type really depends on the type of vehicle you need to ship. Standard everyday sedans, such as a Toyota Corolla, usually go on an open-air trailer. If you need to ship a high-end sports automobile, or any classic car you should choose enclosed trailer.

Standard car shipping means that a carrier will pick up your vehicle within few days. Delivery to Alaska varies as it depends on the exact pick-up location and exact delivery location in Alaska. Keep in mind that all dates and times are only estimates.

Expedited auto transport could guarantee that your car is picked up or delivered on or by a specified date and time. Door-to-door delivery is always an option as well, however you need to discuss this with our agents.

Open auto transport is the standard solution. It is faster and cheaper. Open carriers are readily available and this makes them efficient and preferred by private customers and businesses alike.

Enclosed auto transport is a preferred solution for sports and high-end automobiles. It offers complete protection from weather and road elements. However, it could take a bit longer to book and schedule. It is more expensive as well.

What documents do I need when shipping a car?

Domestic transport is easy. The person at pick-up will also need to sign a Bill of Lading (BOL). The BOL is a receipt and an inspection report. When the carrier inspects the car you need to check with that all existing damages are marked before you sign. Never sign a blank or incomplete document.

How to prepare your car for shipping to Alaska?

If you are shipping your vehicle with personal items in it, please have an inventory list prepared with complete description. Our agents will send you a form you can use to take inventory. You are allowed to load personal items in the car up to 100 lbs free of charge.

Have all necessary fluids – antifreeze with protection to -40`. Corsia and the carriers are not liable for damages resulting from low temperatures.

Your car must have ¼ of a tank of gas. If you are shipping a car running on alternate fuel, please contact us for specific instructions.

Vehicles with propane tanks must be delivered for shipment with the tanks empty. The tank must be marked / certified as gas free by an authorized dealer or company.

Your vehicle must be in proper running condition and have working brakes. We will inspect it at pick-up.

Check your ground clearance – all vehicles must have six inches of ground clearance.

If your vehicle is larger and has any modifications this might contribute to a higher rate. Make sure you discuss this with us in advance.

Always have a photo ID at pick-up and delivery of your car when shipping to Alaska so agents can release the vehicle.
