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

The time it takes to ship a car to or from Alaska depends on various factors, including the starting location, weather conditions, and the specific route taken.

What To Expect With Alaska Car Shipping

Preparing Your Car

Before shipping your car to Alaska, it’s important to prepare it properly. Here are some key steps to follow:

  1. Clean Your Car: Wash your car thoroughly, both inside and out. This helps in the inspection process and ensures there is no dirt hiding any potential damage.

  2. Remove Personal Items: Take out all personal belongings from your car. Items left in the car are not covered by insurance and can add unnecessary weight.

  3. Check for Leaks: Make sure your car doesn’t have any fluid leaks. Cars with leaks might not be accepted for transport.

  4. Disable Alarms: Turn off any alarms in your car to avoid unnecessary activation during transit.

  5. Document the Condition: Take pictures of your car from different angles. Document any existing damage to have a record before shipping.

During Transit

While your car is being shipped to Alaska, it will be transported on a carrier truck. Here’s what to expect during this period:

  1. Tracking Your Car: Most transport companies offer tracking services. You’ll be able to check the location and status of your vehicle during its journey.

  2. Inspection: Your car will be inspected before loading and after unloading. This ensures that any damages during transit are noted and addressed.

  3. Weather Considerations: Alaska’s weather can be unpredictable. Our experienced drivers are well-prepared to handle various weather conditions to ensure safe delivery.


Once your car arrives in Alaska, it will be carefully unloaded and inspected again. You’ll need to be present to receive the vehicle and sign off on the delivery inspection report. This is your opportunity to verify the condition of your car and ensure everything is in order.

Coastal Car Transport took care of transporting my car across southern California when I moved in September 2021, and they were first class when it came to responsiveness, reliability and efficiency. My car was delivered on time and the final price was exactly as originally quoted. Coastal Car Transport made the entire process extremely easy and stress free.
