Alaska Car Shipping
Alaska is a U.S. West side of the United States, in the far northwestern part of the country’s west coast.. A semi-exclave of the U.S., it borders the Canadian province of British Columbia and the Yukon Territory to the east and has a maritime boundary with the self-governing Chukotka Okrug of Russia to the west, right over the Bering Strait. Northward are the Chukchi and Beaufort seas of the Arctic Ocean, whereas the Pacific Ocean is south and south-west.
Alaska is by far the largest U.S. state by area, consisting of more total land area than the following three states, Texas, California and Montana combined, and the seventh largest sub-national division in the world. It is the third lowest populated and sparsely populated state, but by far the most densely populated territory of the continent located primarily north of the 60th parallel, with a population of 736,081 as of 2020—over four times the combined populations in northern Canada and Greenland. About half of the Alaskan population lives in the greater Anchorage area. The state capital of Juneau is the second largest city in the United States by region, encompassing more territory than the states of Rhode Island and Delaware. The former capital of Alaska, Sitka, is the largest U.S. city by area.
Alaska has few highway connections in comparison to the rest of the United States. The state road network, which covers a relatively small section of the state, links the central population centers and the Alaska Highway, the major road from the state through Canada. The state capital, Juneau, is not accessible by road, just one coach ferry; this has sparked debate over the decades about the movement of the capital into a city on the road network, or building a roadway link to Haines. Western Alaska does not have a road network linking communities to the rest of Alaska.
Alaska’s inter-state highways cover a total of 1,082 miles (1,741 km). A distinctive feature of Alaska’s road system is the Anton Anderson Memorial Tunnel, an active Alaskan railway tunnel was recently modernized to provide a paved road link to the remote community of Whittier on Prince William reaching the Seward Road approximately 50 miles (80 km) southeast from Anchorage to Portage. At a distance of 4.0 km (2.5 miles), the tunnel was North America’s longest road tunnel until 2007. It is the longest combined highway and rail tunnel in North America.
About Alaska Car Transport
Alaska has some of the harshest weather in the U.S because of its very cold and snowy winters. The snow, ice, and high winds that encompass much of Alaska’s year are pretty fierce, and clear reasons to ship your new or used car to Alaska in an enclosed carrier. But with invasive bugs, wildlife, and heavy winds blowing around debris, the summer months aren’t all that kind either. It’s a wise investment to protect your vehicle by shipping to, from, and within Alaska in an enclosed car carrier.
The safest way to transport your car to Alaska is within an enclosed auto transport.
Enclosed car shipping versus open air is the biggest factor when it comes to cost because carriers who use enclosed car shipping are typically more expensive. The equipment they use costs more and the insurance they carry is higher than open air carriers.
