Moving to Alaska is a unique experience, and an adventure. Unlike most other states, Alaska is not connected to any major interstate, and is a bit harder to reach. For this reason, moving to Alaska calls for highly experienced movers and relocation companies.
Large items such as furniture and cars, as well as smaller household goods can be shipped to Alaska by air or freight. As your Alaskan movers, we take moving to Alaska very seriously. With an experienced team of quality expert movers, we can complete your residential or commercial move to Alaska in an efficient and timely manner.
If you’re moving to Alaska, you’ll soon understand why it’s called “The Last Frontier.” The following tips will help you plan a successful move:
Plan your move during the summer, from May to early October. Depending on your location, spring and fall can be rainy and winters are cold. You don’t want to track mud and slush into your new home, or slip while carrying moving boxes.
Alaska doesn’t require moving permits and most areas have ample room for parking. However, if you’re moving to AK to a more populated area, such as Anchorage, Fairbanks or Juneau, check parking requirements ahead of time.
If you’re driving, carefully map out your route. Check with the Alaska Department of Transportation to make sure all roads are accessible or call 511 for traveler information.
