Shipping to Cordova
Alaska has the least population of any state in the United States. There are many things to take into consideration when you are planning to move to Cordova or any other Alaskan city:
- You will find that there is no sales tax in Alaska nor is there an individual income tax that must be paid.
- Residents, even new residents, can apply with the Alaska Permanent Fund Corporation and can receive an annual payment from the permanent fund dividend.
- All motor vehicles must be registered in Alaska within 10 days of residency.
- To register a vehicle you must go to a DMV office and pay the registration fee. You will also need to provide the clerk with the vehicle title and registration to change to an Alaskan title.
- You will need to ship your vehicle to a nearby seaport. Ports are located in Fairbanks and Anchorage. From there, the car can be flown or taken by ferry to Cordova.
- Always compare carrier companies before making a decision on the one to hire. Look for quality services for shipping as well as great customer service.
- Stay away from companies that under-price the average rates. These companies will often provide delayed or subpar service and your vehicle may be in the hands of unprofessional drivers and shipping personnel.
