I recently read a post by a man who wanted to know the cost to move to Alaska, but didn’t want to spend the time comparing moving companies for the best price. Thanks to the convenience of the internet today, you can quickly get moving quotes online from different Alaska moving companies. Get started with a free moving quote from U-Pack. Within 24 hours, it will tell you the cost of your move to Alaska.
The best part about U-Pack is that you don’t have to drive, or pay out of pocket for fuel because it’s included in your quote! Compare your U-Pack quote to other moving options.

Alaska is like no other state in the nation, and the fact that it’s surrounded by the beauty of unspoiled wilderness makes moving there an exciting adventure. But a successful move to Alaska in the winter requires serious planning.

Winter temperatures in Alaska vary depending on whether you’re moving to an outlying area like Anchorage or an interior city like Fairbanks (where temps often fall below 30° for weeks at a time). With cold temperatures and long nights, it’s important to be adequately prepared.

So, you're moving to Alaska and you've found that U-Pack is the easiest, most affordable way to get there. If you've done your research, you probably already know that it's ok to move smaller items with gas engines in an ABF trailer or ReloCube (like ATV's, chainsaws, weed eaters, mowers and motorcycles).
