ShipLux’s Shipping Methods To Alaska

‘Domestic’ doesn’t always mean ‘easy’, especially outside the ‘Lower 48.’ That's where you step in and take control of the difficult part, making it nice and easy for you! 

To get your vehicle to Alaska, you can opt for the following methods:

  1. Open Auto Shipping Open auto shipping is a common method for shipping vehicles and is a great choice for getting your beloved vehicles to Alaska. An open-air carrier does not have enclosed side walls or a roof and is open all the way around. While your car will be treated carefully and safely,  there will typically be between six and nine cars on the carrier. As long as you don't mind putting your vehicle through a car wash, it's a great method to protect your budget. 

  2. Enclosed Auto Shipping  Enclosed transportation will involve delicately loading your vehicle into a completely covered trailer, at 360 degrees, where it will be protected from virtually all elements that could negatively impact the vehicle for the duration of the trip. Considered the more luxurious route, the vehicle may travel alongside 1-3 other cars, 6-7 or even 8-9 cars, on the enclosed auto route, depending on the liftgate or soft side trailer. Regardless of the other cars, each is provided extensive space and treated with the utmost care. Classic, antique, and one-of-a-kind vehicles are treated to our signature White Glove Treatment.
    We offer port-to-port service, where you drive your vehicle to the port yourself, or door-to-door, whereby your valued vehicle is collected from your home—rural or urban—and dropped off at the address you provide in Alaska. Regardless of the method you pick en route to Alaska, ShipLux ensures top-notch treatment, as our Premium Service is infused in all we do.

Vehicle Shipping Protection for Shipping To Alaska

ShipLux drivers are professionally trained in ensuring your vehicles are safely and cautiously shipped to Alaska.

Before handing off your vehicle to us, we encourage you to not only clean it, inside and out, but to take photographs for security measures. When our driver takes your vehicle away, the driver will check over the vehicle too, to check out the condition of the vehicle.  When reunited with your vehicle, be sure to have a thorough look at the vehicle, to ensure everything looks as good as new. Regardless if you opt for open or enclosed carriers, all vehicles are securely and carefully strapped into place, preventing them from moving about while on the move.
