How much does it cost to ship a car from Florida to Alaska?

I’m on active duty in the military and am being transferred to Alaska for training. My family is moving together, and we’d like to hold onto our minivan—but shipping seems expensive. What does it usually cost to ship a car to Alaska from Florida?

Thank you for your service! Shipping a car from Florida to Alaska can cost anywhere from $2,215 to $3,375.
Of course, the specific cost will depend on:
  • Where in Florida you ship the car from,
  • where you’re sending it in Alaska,
  • the shipping speed you choose, and
  • the time of year you ship it in.
To ensure you get the best deal, try shopping around for an affordable shipping company. As is the case with most services, the first option you find will rarely be your best. Compare estimates from at least three companies to get an idea of your options before you settle for a shipping service.
When you finally settle into your new home, remember to check up on Alaska’s minimum car insurance laws. You’ll likely need to buy new coverage to match the state requirements.
