Need Help Moving to Alaska?

I totally understand why you want to move there. The unspoiled natural beauty, the adventure, and the awesome opportunities are all huge draws. However, we know that moving to Alaska can seem like a huge undertaking. If you need help, you’re in the right place; U-Pack® has moved countless people there. Let me explain a little about how moving to Alaska with U-Pack works and show you how we can make the move easy and affordable.   

How U-Pack Helps You Move to Alaska

First things first, U-Pack is a unique way to move. It’s the mid-way between full-service moving and truck rental; a “you pack, we drive.” And it’s perfect when you need help moving to Alaska since it’s a money-saver and you don’t have to drive the moving truck. Here’s how it works:  

  • A moving trailer, ReloCube or ocean container is delivered to your door (the type of equipment depends on your moving needs and our availability).

  • You pack up your belongings and load the trailer (or we can help arrange moving help).

  • Your belongings are transported to Tacoma, WA where they’re put on a ship to sail to Anchorage.

  • The equipment is delivered to your door, or you save more money by unloading at our service center in Anchorage.

Since several Alaska locations are remote, and weather conditions can become unfavorable, ReloCubes are only available for unloading at the Anchorage service center. However, moving trailers and ocean containers can be delivered to the door in many locations. To check serviceability in the area you’re moving to in Alaska, get a free moving quote.  

Why U-Pack is best when you need help moving to Alaska

When it comes to moving to Alaska, many customers choose U-Pack because it’s convenient and affordable. Compare U-Pack’s price to what it would cost with a full-service mover and you’ll typically see a significant difference. And here’s a perk that a lot of people moving to Alaska like:  there’s no down-payment or deposit. Wait to pay after your shipment is loaded and is in transit to Alaska.

Coming in a close 2nd is the fact that you don’t have to drive a moving truck. While the Al-Can may be great for a road trip during the spring and summer, it’s not ideal for driving in a large rental truck (can you imagine). And when the weather is questionable, it’s even more undesirable. With U-Pack you load your belongings and a trusted carrier transports them to your destination. You’re free to drive in your own vehicle, fly, or sail—however you want to get to Alaska.

How much does moving to Alaska cost with U-Pack?

Great question! And it’s easy to answer. You can get a free, no-obligation moving quote online, or call 800-413-4799. Along with your price, your quote will show your estimated transit time (normally around 10 business days for Alaska moves). Note that most quotes for moving to Alaska need to be reviewed by an analyst before being sent out, so you typically will not get an instant quote. But, we’ll email it to you quickly.
