Alaska Moving Companies and Services They Offer

Alaska has various moving companies that offer services in order to meet the needs of people moving to Alaska or from this great State to other parts of the United States and Internationally. Alaska holds the title of the largest State in the US and is known as 'the last Frontier State'.

Some fun facts about Alaska include the fact that the Yukon River is the third longest in the US. Additionally, Anchorage, AK is the largest city in the United States by land area. However, it is important to note that Juneau is the capital city and that instead of counties, Alaska has 25 boroughs.

Moving companies in Alaska offer three major types of moves which include 'full service' moves, where the company sends people over to come to your house, pack, drive to your destination and unpack your house hold goods.

The second type of service offered is referred to as 'self service' moves. This means that you will be responsible for packing your house hold furniture and the movers will drive it to your destination.

The third type is the 'do it yourself' move better known as self moving. This is where you rent your own truck, pack and drive yourself to your destination and then unpack and return the truck to a drop off point designated by the company. These tend to be the most popular for short distance moves.

Self moving involves a truck rental. You are responsible for buying all the packing and moving supplies that will be used and you will also do all the packing yourself. You can either use friends and family to help you move or contract movers to assist you.

One of the best moving services you can use is the self service option where you pack and the company moves your goods. This is especially important if you are moving to Alaska from another state. The main advantage is that you are not responsible for the goods being transported, so the driver must be both professional and licensed to drive a commercial vehicle.
