How to Ship Your Firearm to Alaska
IMPORTANT: DO NOT USE FEDEX. All FedEx packages will be refused. Call us for options before shipping.
Please call or email us with your name and mobile number to schedule your estimated date of arrival. Failure to do this may cause unnecessary delays. When you or your dealer ships your firearm, handgun or long gun, shipping MUST be declared with the shipper. Here is what to do.
Go to one of our Preferred Licensed Gun Dealers, drop off your firearm(s), and ask them to ship your package to Wolfhawk Shipping in Tok, Alaska, via USPS Priority in a Flat Rate box.
Our address is:
PO Box 1004
Tok, Alaska 99780
See our example shipping label.
Our preferred FFLs will have their own fees and they know the difference between a transfer and someone shipping their own gun. Be sure to ship your spare magazines as well. Once your package has shipped please call or email us, if you haven’t done so, with your mobile phone number and estimated date of arrival.
When you are a day or two out from Tok, call or email to let us know and we will remove your package from the safe and we or our associate will have it ready for you when you arrive. This will prevent unnecessary delays.
Receiving Cost: $38.00 per handgun. Seniors, vets, active military, and traveling nurses get a $5.00 per handgun discount. See our Cost page.
Storage fees apply after 14 days. Visit our Firearms Storage page for details.
Preferred Federal Firearms Licensed (FFL) Dealers
Using Non-Preferred Dealers: Unfortunately, 98% of gun dealers will treat your transaction as a transfer even though it is not, and then they will make out the label incorrectly no matter how much you detail the importance of it. We will not accept transfers. If using your own dealer, they must clearly confirm to us in an email that the shipment is not a transfer and will not enter your private shipment in the A&D Book.
If the label is done wrong, it becomes a transfer, which requires you to prove Alaska residency, do a background check, and possible waiting period, as well as pay an extra $100 transfer fee per firearm. We will refuse and return all incorrectly labeled packages unless prior arrangements have been made.
Shipping Your Handgun From Alaska
Call us during business hours and we’ll meet you at the office trailer or come to you—your choice. Let us know where to send your gun(s), how much insurance, and we’ll work up the shipping, insurance, adult signature, and our fee, which for handguns is the same rate per gun as receiving.
An off-hours meeting can be arranged in advance for a $35 call-out fee.
