Washington Vehicle Shipping

As an auto transport company with over 20 years of experience serving the state of Washington, we have transported thousands of vehicles in and out of the state. It is one of the main states we ship in and out of as we work with private vehicle owners, auto auctions, and dealerships throughout the state. As a door-to-door auto transporter, we'll go anywhere throughout the state of Washington to ship a vehicle!

The two primary shipping corridors in the state are I-5 and I-90. We regularly transport vehicles to and from Seattle, Tacoma, and Olympia along I-5. Along I-90, we're regularly transporting vehicles to and from Spokane, Moses Lake, and Ellensburg. Those two shipping lanes and the cities along them are your best bets for the fastest and cheapest auto transports to and from Washington.

The most challenging car shipping areas in Washington are the northern portion of I-5 (Everett up to Bellingham) and anything west of Seattle and Tacoma in the heart of the Puget Sound (cities such as Gig Harbor, Bremerton, Port Orchard, Bainbridge Island, and Poulsbo). Transports in these areas will usually take longer and cost more – especially those in the heart of Puget Sound. In fact, we rarely send trucks over into the Puget Sound area because of the time and expense it can take. Most of our customers realize they can expedite their transports and save a lot of money by meeting a carrier in the Tacoma area.

Other challenging locations are all those towns and cities in Washington north of US Highway 2. This highway runs almost in a straight line from Spokane to Seattle. Anything north of that line is challenging. There aren't any interstates in that region of the state and the towns and cities are sparsely populated. Car carriers just aren't going in and out of those areas on a regular basis.

Alaska Vehicle Shipping

We ship cars between Alaska and the lower 48 states all year round. Our Alaska auto transports are done by ship for the safest and quickest transport. The shipping ports we use when shipping cars between Alaska and the lower 48 states are the Port of Alaska in Anchorage, AK and the Port of Tacoma in Tacoma, WA.

Most of our Alaska transports are shipped on an open deck because that is the cheapest Alaska shipping option, but if you need your vehicle fully protected in a climate-controlled area, we offer closed deck options as well.

We make the process of shipping a car to or from Alaska very easy and stress-free. We handle all the details and paperwork for you. All you have to do is drop your vehicle off or pick your vehicle up at either of the two ports. If that isn't possible, we will truck your vehicle to or from either of the ports. While we offer trucking throughout the lower 48 states, we only offer trucking options in Alaska between Fairbanks and Anchorage.

The ships leave the ports twice a week so when your vehicle is dropped off at the ports by you or by our trucks, it is safely loaded onto one of the ships setting sail that week. As soon as the ship leaves the port, your vehicle will be delivered to the other port within a week!
