Vehicle shipping to and from Aleutians East Borough
If you know anything about Alaska, then you are aware that the road connection is insufficient. Most parts of the state are served by rugged roads. When shipping cars to and from Aleutians East Borough, we use water transport. The county is connected to Alaska’s mainland, but no major highway runs through the county. Also, some parts of the county are islands.
We are specialists in car shipping by sea. We use this mode of transport to ship cars to overseas destinations, Hawaii, and some parts of Alaska.
We can ship your car to the Aleutian Islands in a container. After we have loaded the cars into a container, the container is lifted onto a ship headed for your destination. The containers are big enough to accommodate several cars. The advantage of sharing a container, obviously, is reduced shipping cost. The 20-foot container fits up to 4 mid-sized cars, while the 40-foot container can accommodate 4-8 cars.
The other shipping option is RORO shipping. RORO vessels are ships specifically designed to carry wheeled cargo. The car is driven into a designated spot in the belly of the ship. It is then secured on the deck's floor. These ships carry a lot of vehicles, making this method cheap. However, as the ship has to get full before setting sail, this method can be quite slow sometimes. Also, the port you are shipping to has to have a RORO dock for this to be a viable shipping method.
What to consider before shipping to Aleutians East Borough
- Destination: When shipping by sea, we get your car as far as a port. Due to the poor road network in the county, we do not have carriers to transport your car to an inland location. So, you will have to meet your car at a port.
- Time: Transport by sea is far much slower than by road. So, you will have to book our car shipping services to Aleutians East Borough 3-4 months in advance to allow us enough time to schedule the shipment and deliver the car in time.
