Alaska Vehicle Shipping
Preparing Your Auto for Shipment
The following important information will help speed your move along:
The only items acceptable for shipment in your automobile are those tools and accessories normally attached to the vehicle, or permanently installed in the dash, doors, rear deck, or console.
Gas and Antifreeze
» Gas – Your vehicle must have 1/4 tank or less fuel. Our port personnel will do the rest, and make sure your vehicle is ready to go when it reaches its destination. If you are shipping a vehicle powered by an alternate fuel-propane, electric, natural gas, etc. - please contact our Customer Service Center for special shipping instructions.
» Antifreeze - Automobiles shipped to or from Alaska should have antifreeze protection to -40 degrees. We are not responsible for providing this protection nor liable for damage resulting from low temperatures.
Fire Extinguishers and Propane Tanks
» Fire extinguishers - Must be removed. Federal regulations do not permit fire extinguishers to be shipped with your automobile.
» Propane tanks - Vehicles with propane tanks for auxiliary uses must be delivered for shipment with the propane tanks empty of any liquid or fumes. The empty tank must be tagged and certified as "gas free" by an authorized propane dealer or service company. We recommend that you verify the cost of emptying and certifying propane tanks. It may be less costly to purchase a new tank at your destination.
All vehicles must be in good running condition and have properly working parking brakes.
