Though there are many excellent aspects of living in Alaska, such as the supportive community and being surrounded by nature, one downside is how shipping to Alaska works (or rather, doesn’t work) when having an order sent from the lower 48.
For example, if you’ve ever tried to order something from PartsGeek.com, which only ships to states within the contiguous U.S., then you understand our frustration.
We felt that enough was enough, so we decided to take action. Now, with MyConnect, you can have your packages from PartsGeek.com forwarded to a package pick-up terminal in Alaska that’s conveniently located for you to pick up.
Wait, PartsGeek.com Doesn’t Ship to Alaska?
Many well-known retailers, such as PartsGeek.com, don’t offer to ship to Alaska because it’s less practical and more expensive than other areas in the contiguous United States. It’s understandable when you take into account that Alaska is both large and located far from the lower 48. Furthermore, many regions within Alaska are difficult to access by land or sea transport methods making it an impractical option for shipping purposes.
But at Carlile, we understand how important it is for the people of Alaska to be able to get the products they need and want, which is why we’ve made it our mission to get those products here.
