Chugiak, Alaska Professional Auto Shipping
Chugiak is a small, unincorporated city that is less than 20 miles away from Anchorage, the largest city in the state of Alaska. It is nestled between Eagle River and Eklutna and sits just east of the Chugach Mountains. There are only around 8500 residents that live in Chugiak but they offer a spectacular area where many people enjoy hunting and snow sports as well as cabin retreats in the woods throughout the year. Much of the local community works in Anchorage and other surrounding large cities, but there are many local job opportunities as well with places like the Birchwood Shooting and Recreational Park, the largest gun range in Alaska as well as with the U.S. Postal Service and other small offices and medical facilities. With its close proximity to Eagle River, Alaska, the two communities often host festivals together and share resources for local activities and recreation. There are several local campgrounds and many events held throughout the year.

Shipping to Chugiak
When you are planning to make a move to Chugiak, you will need to take the local weather trends and roadways into consideration when you are planning for auto transport. Keep these tips in mind when shipping a car to Alaska:
- Chugiak is off the main interstate access and driving a 4-Wheel Drive capable vehicle is recommended, especially if you will need to travel to and from larger cities in the area.
- When preparing the vehicle for auto shipping you will want to make sure the antifreeze is filled to the proper level and that the tires are either snow tires or that you have chains handy for the local commute.
- Seldom ever does the temperature rise above 65 degrees. Be prepared for a very cold climate, especially from November through March where temps can drop below zero very quickly.
- The best time of year to have a vehicle transported to Chugiak is generally between May and August as the temps are warmer and the roadways are usually easier to navigate during these months.
- All motor vehicles must have Alaska registration applied for within 10 days of moving to the state.
- You will need to provide the local DMV a copy of the title and vehicle registration as well as the registration application and fee.
