When you’re looking for auto shipping to North Dakota, chances are you’re going to be in for higher prices and longer pickup windows. North Dakota is far from a shipper’s paradise – there are few people living there, few major interstates that are worth traveling on (due to the lack of customers), and the weather during half the year is absolutely atrocious. But even through all that, there are still carriers willing to take a load or two to North Dakota – provided you pay. That’s why shipping costs are generally higher to North Dakota; auto shipping carriers need to be able to make up for all the money they won’t be making by traveling there.
When you’re shipping to North Dakota, try and ship if the summer months if you can. Not everyone can pick when they ship, but if you can, the summer months are almost always your best bet in terms of finding the best auto shipping prices. There are more carriers on the roads during the summer months and there are a lot more routes through the northern states that are more commonly traveled during the summer than the winter.

Anchorage, Alaska is a city that can be somewhat of a pain to ship to because the process can be somewhat complicated. You can ship to Anchorage from anywhere in the U.S., but that just means it’s going to take longer and cost more. When you’re shipping a car up to Anchorage, it’s going to be picked up from whichever city you’re shipping from and transported via car transport truck to one of the ports on the west coast – typically it’ll be either Seattle, Washington or Tacoma, which is just a few miles south of Seattle. From there, your vehicle will be loaded onto an overseas cargo ship and transported via that to the port in Anchorage.
It can be a pretty expensive process, but some auto transport companies provide better deals than others because of how much extra business they give the port.
