Safe And Reliable Kodiak Car Shipping Services By A-1 Auto Transport
Kodiak gained fame in the Kevin Costner blockbuster “The Guardian,” though Coast Guard denizens have long been aware of this Alaska city from the fact that there is such a large U.S. Coast Guard presence here. There is no way to get to Kodiak Island except for ferryboat or air. There are roughly 6,000 residents on this island, which was actually inhabited by Alutigg people for more than 7,000 years.
There is some of the most varied wildlife in the country here, from the infamous Kodiak bear to the Sitka deer to mountain goats and more. The Alaska Department of Fish and Game has an office on the island, as does the University of Alaska. The U.S. Navy also has a base here, so U.S. Navy SEALs can train in the cold conditions to prepare for combat in any locale.

Using Kodiak Vehicle Transport Companies
When you are looking to book Kodiak car transport services, keep a few key tips in mind:
- Take all personal effects out of the car: The transport company will likely tell you that they are not responsible for your personal effects in the car, and this is the case. Remove anything of any value – even sentimental value – from the vehicle before transport.
- You must confirm the condition of your car before transport: In other words, you can’t come back and accuse the transport company of damaging your vehicle if you were able to document the damage well ahead of time. This replies in reverse as well. So document damage in detail and make sure both you and the car company sign off.
- Negotiate your price; never take the first price offered to you: There are always discounts available, particularly for first-time customers or frequent transport consumers.
