            Why Ship a Car Instead of Driving to Alaska?

            Why Ship a Car Instead of Driving to Alaska

            It might seem like a good idea to make the drive yourself so you can save some money, but could end up causing you more trouble (and more money) than it’s worth in the long run. Here is why:

            • The Drive is Long: Driving to Alaska from Washington state can take over 43 hours. It will take between 5 and 6 days. Many gallons of gas you’ll have to fill up and that’s a lot of unneeded wear and tear on your car.
            • You Have to Cross Borders, Twice: On the way to Alaska, you’ll need to cross the border into Canada and again into the U.S. when you arrive in Alaska. Both factors combined make it unnecessary to wait a lot.
            • Special Equipment May be Required: Your car might need winter tires and chains depending on the season you travel. Some small gas stations may not be open on your way up to or down from Alaska, so you’ll also need extra gas cans.

            All of these costs will certainly add up very quickly. Last but not least, consider how tired you’ll be afterward.
