Shipping household goods to Alaska fast

While some companies can take upwards of 4-6 weeks to deliver your shipment to Alaska, U-Pack is fast. U-Pack shipments to Alaska average just 10-12 business days for delivery! That includes your items being picked up at your door, shipped to Tacoma, WA, then put on a boat to Anchorage, and delivered to your door in Alaska (if the location you are moving to allows door delivery). You can’t beat that!

The Cheapest Way to Ship Your House to Alaska

U-Pack is known for being a great affordable moving solution. Your rates are based on the space you use, so you control the cost! When shipping household goods to Alaska, you can choose from these three options.

  1. You can use an entire 40-foot ocean container (would be great for moving an entire 4+ bedroom home.) With this option, you pay for the entire ocean container. Ocean containers can be delivered door-to-door to most locations in Alaska.
  2. You can choose a 28-foot moving trailer option. You fill it up with your items, and pay only for the space you use. So, if you only fill it to 14 feet full, you only pay for 14 feet. U-Pack will fill the rest of the container will commercial, palletized goods heading in the same direction, which saves you lots of money by not having to pay for the entire trailer. Moving trailers can be used for door-to-door moving in Alaska.
  3. You can use a ReloCube® moving container. These are 6’ x 7’ x 8’ metal containers. You can reserve as many as you think you’ll need, but you only pay for the ones you use. ReloCubes are usually the cheapest option because you unload them at our terminal in Anchorage, saving you money!
