Safe And Reliable Palmer Car Shipping Services By A-1 Auto Transport
Part of the Anchorage metro area, Palmer is a smaller town on the outskirts of the larger metropolis with just about 6,000 residents that call this place home. It is on the north portion of the Matanuska River and at the foothills of the Talkeetna Mountains. The town spans just about four miles in total, but it continues to grow, particularly as residents of Palmer try to get out of the metro area and into a place that offers a slower pace of life, as Palmer does.

During the summers, the Palmer area is cooler than other parts of the state, with an average temperature in the 50s. There are actually glaciers on either side of the town and wind blows off of each and into the area, which may account for the lower temperatures. The Alaska State Fair is located here and offers rides, games, food and other entertainment. In fact, this fair has the record for the largest vegetable in a number of categories.
There is also the Palmer Museum of History and Art, which offers visitors a chance to see pieces of history from the area as well as maps of points of interest in the town that speak to the area’s history. Hatcher Pass is also in this area and is a mountain-flanked pass that offers an area to do some back-country skiing for enthusiasts as well as scenic hiking opportunities for those wanting to experience more of Alaska’s wild outdoors.
Using Palmer Vehicle Transport Companies
When you are looking to book Palmer car transport services, keep a few key tips in mind:
- Gauge delivery time by your chosen method of transport: For instance, if you’ve opted for the more inexpensive multi-car carrier transport, then you may be dealing with a longer delivery time because the trucks may have more stops than an individual driver may need to make. Moreover, you may need to pick up your vehicle at a depot, since the larger multi-carrier truck likely cannot deliver to your front door.
- Check fluids: Leaking fluids, particularly if you are dealing with oil or brake fluid, can damage the other cars on a carrier by dripping onto whatever is below them. Not only can this result in added fees for you because of the damage, but it can be hazardous to the transport company driver. Keep this in mind when you are prepping your vehicle for transport.
- Confer with the driver over the final condition of your vehicle before signing off on it: You can’t change your mind later and decide that there are problems with your car if you’ve already signed on the bottom line after receiving your vehicle from the transport company. Keep this in mind as you are conducting a final inspection on your car.
