Safe And Reliable Homer Car Shipping Services By A-1 Auto Transport
With a population of just over 5,000 people, Homer, Alaska is situated on the Kenai Peninsula. It is known as the “end of the road” in Alaska and is fairly rural in comparison with some of the other metro areas in this northernmost state. The city is named for a gold mining company exec, Homer Pennock, as he arrived in this area in the late 1800s and built living quarters for the roughly 50 men he brought with him. This area is known for some of the best halibut fishing in the world and also offers sport and commercial salmon fishing as well.

Using Homer Vehicle Transport Companies
When you are looking to book Homer car transport services, keep a few key tips in mind:
- Ask about the most direct route to save money: For instance, the California to Florida route along I-10 is one of the cheapest routes to take in terms of transportation costs. Ask about the most direct or cheapest route from your destination in or around Alaska to get the best bang for your transport buck.
- Make sure to let the transport company know of any modifications made to your vehicle ahead of transport: For instance, if your vehicle has a camper shell or vehicle lowering capabilities, these are accessories and modifications that the car transport company needs to know about ahead of transport. In most instances, there is an area on the transport booking form that asks about such modifications, but in the event that there is not, be sure to let your transport company know on your own.
- Reduce the weight of your vehicle for lower shipping costs: Many companies base the end price of your vehicle on the weight of it for transport. You can reduce the weight of your vehicle by taking off heavy accessories, keeping the level of fuel at roughly a quarter of a tank and taking out all personal effects. Even several ounces can make the transport process a bit cheaper; even a few bucks earned can go towards other expenses.
