This quirky Alaska locale also has a large collective of totem poles, devoting an entire Totem Heritage Center to them. Some of the best fishing in the area can be found in Ketchikan Creek, which flows directly through the town. The city is a gateway of sorts to the southern region of Alaska, with people flying into Ketchikan International Airport. Visitors and residents can also ferry in through the Inside Passage route of the Alaska Marine Highway.
Using Ketchikan Vehicle Transport Companies
When you are looking to book Ketchikan car transport services, keep a few key tips in mind:
- Make sure you don’t have too much fuel in the tank: There should be a minimum of 1/8 of a tank of fuel, but if you can keep it at a quarter or less, then transport will be less expensive.
- Check the height of your vehicle with your chosen mode of transport: For instance, if you’ve opted for trailer transport, which is often one of the less expensive options or a good way to move an entire fleet of vehicles, then your vehicle may not exceed seven feet in terms of height. Check with your transport company if your vehicle is oversized to ensure that transport is still an option for you.
- Reduce the weight of your vehicle where possible: This might include keeping fluids fairly low, but might also consist of taking out personal effects that can add unnecessary weight to your vehicle. The lighter your vehicle, the more affordable transport will be in the end.
