Moving to Alaska in the Winter

March 12th, 2012 - 11:09 AM

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.

What to expect from a winter move to Alaska
Expect it to be cold, dark, and have lots of snow. 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).  What you may or may not know is that shipments moving into and out of Alaska are randomly inspected at the port, and if the shipment is not in compliance with Coast Guard shipping regulations, you run the risk of being fined in excess of $700 f
