Alaska, AK - Best Moving Companies & Movers

Moving to or from Alaska has many special considerations. Transferring your belongings from Iowa to Illinois is hardly the same as relocating from the lower 48 to the Last Frontier. Professionals in this state have a great deal of experience in the issues that surround transporting goods around the largest state in the United States. It is important to consider that relocations in in Alaska will be more expensive due to the difficulty of transportation. However, there are ways that you can reduce expenses.

  • First, consider what you really need with you. If you cut back on your possessions and take only what you absolutely must, you can cut thousands of dollars from your quote.
  • Second, investigate your options for transporting of your belongings. Some locations in this large state are fairly bustling, such as Anchorage, while others are extremely remote. Driving your own belongings may not be an option. Having professional drivers may not even be an option. Some homes in Alaska are only accessed by air or boat. Be sure you are well-informed of the routes in and out of your home.
  • Third, consider that a combination companies in Alaska and other places may be the most cost-efficient approach. For instance, using one company or driving your own belongings to a location in Washington state (such as Seattle) and then using a local company in Alaska from that point may be less expensive than using one single company for the long haul.
  • Fourth, check and double check all of the paperwork you’ll need to transport your goods such a distance. You will need to keep excellent records of all of your belongings, the route they are taking, and the quotes and what they cover.
  • Fifth, make sure you deal with only reputable companies in Alaska. When you seek a quote, check up on the companies of which you inquire. Watchdog organizations (like the Better Business Bureau) and professional associations can ensure that the company you work with is reputable and trustworthy.

Though certainly Anchorage and Fairbanks offer city amenities similar to those in the lower forty-eight, there are many tiny towns and very remote homesteads in this large state. Moving to Alaska can be tricky, but the opportunities and beauty of the natural surroundings is well worth the trouble.
