Shipping to Akutan
Keep these tips in mind when shipping a vehicle to Akutan:
- When you are planning to move to Akutan you should be aware that the winter months can lead to quite treacherous weather and can severely hamper the road conditions in the small city. Having an SUV or other motor vehicles that has 4-Wheel Drive is suggested, especially when the weather is icy and cold.
- If you want to make sure the vehicle is fully protected from the wind, snow, ice and other possible weather issues, you may want to ask about having the car shipped in an enclosed shipping container as it is being shipped to Alaska and inside an enclosed truck once it reaches Alaska.
- You may also ship via Ro-Ro transport when shipping from the lower 48 and then on an open transport truck once the vehicle reaches Alaska. Open, or ro-ro transport is the least expensive option to ship a vehicle. Traveling through some areas of Alaska and into Akutan you may find treacherous weather conditions and will want an enclosed carrier instead.
- Regardless of the type of transport carrier that you choose, be sure that the company you hire has valid insurance and that the coverage amount is enough for your vehicle. Also, check with your own insurance company and make sure your auto insurance is valid during the time the car is being shipped.
