While there are many reasons to love living in Alaska, one of the challenges is that not all online retailers ship to our state. This can be frustrating when you’re trying to shop online and find that your favorite retailer doesn’t deliver to Alaska.
Why don’t more retailers ship to Alaska? Well, it can present numerous logistics and customer support challenges that many companies don’t want to deal with.
One of those retailers is RockAuto.com. Which is a shame, because RockAuto.com is a great place to find good deals on everything having to do with car and truck parts. So what are Alaskans supposed to do?
Luckily, Carlile has come up with a solution called MyConnect. Thanks to MyConnect, you can have your packages from RockAuto.com forwarded directly to Alaska.
Use MyConnect to Ship RockAuto.com to Alaska
MyConnect is a shipping service that allows you to shop at any retailer in the contiguous United States and have your purchases delivered to a Carlile terminal in Tacoma, Washington. From there, Carlile takes care of getting your packages up to Alaska.
Here’s how it works:
- You shop at RockAuto.com like normal, adding all the items you want to your cart and going through the checkout process like you normally would.
- Go to the MyConnect page and use the widget near the bottom to get an estimate for your item(s). (Optional)
- At checkout, enter the information for our Tacoma shipping terminal as the shipping address.
- Once RockAuto.com ships your order to the Tacoma terminal, we’ll pick it up and take it to a Carlile terminal in Alaska where you can then pick it up at your convenience.
Pretty easy, huh?
