How Overseas Car Shipping Services Work

Hawaii 5If you need to transport your vehicle to or from Alaska or Hawaii, you can rest assured that we can help you get your vehicle shipped to or from those states. However, those areas are a bit more difficult to ship into or out of than the rest of the contiguous United States, and one of the main reasons is because they aren’t connected to the mainland United States. Car transporters can’t drive to Hawaii, and while they could drive to Alaska (via Canada) it’s expensive and time-consuming, and at over 2,200 miles it’s roughly the distance from Seattle to Cleveland, Ohio, which generally is a trip of anywhere from 5-8 days. And that includes a lot of stops picking up and delivering other vehicles for other customers and, you know, making money along the way, which they can’t do in Middle-of-Nowhere, Yukon, Canada because your car would likely be the only one on his truck.

Okay, maybe not the only one – auto transport to Alaska is fairly common, believe it or not. However, driving is simply implausible for auto transporters, so they don’t do it, which means your vehicle would need to be shipped overseas. Overseas auto shipping is done a lot like standard auto transportation, but with an extra step involved. See, when shipping to Alaska – say, from Chicago – once you book your order with a shipping company they’ll dispatch a carrier to your location to pick the vehicle up. From there, that carrier will transport your car (or truck, or SUV, or whatever) all the way to the port in Seattle. From there, your vehicle will be loaded onto an overseas auto transport ship, where it will be delivered to the port in Anchorage (or Juneau, or Fairbanks depending on where you need it to go), where you will pick your vehicle up and take it wherever you want it to go.

This is the standard way that vehicles are shipped overseas, and it’s something that probably won’t be changing any time soon. It is the most cost-effective way to ship a vehicle to Alaska or Hawaii for any auto transport company, and with the way things are now, no one really wants to switch it up. Plus, when moving a vehicle through Canada from the United States, you need to pass a whole bunch of different inspections, pay some customs fees and a whole list of other things – things that make it not very cost effective for auto transport carriers. Therefore, they’ll transport vehicles to the port, but not through Canada.
