Alaska, “the Last Frontier,” despite being the largest US State is the least densely populated of them all. The state’s economy mostly consists of fishing, natural gas, and oil, although tourism also plays a large part. Alaska is characterized by its long periods of daylight hours during the summer and its equally lengthy dark hours during the winter, a phenomenon known as the “Midnight Sun.” No matter your own reasons for moving to Alaska, it is IMPERATIVE that you enlist the help of a reputable moving company, simply because of its location well outside of the 48 contiguous states, bordered only by Canada.

Moving Company Checklist
The list of requirements when seeking out a professional moving company could potentially go on and on, but there are a few basic guidelines that trump all others, as listed in the checklist below.
Experience: The proximity, or lack thereof, of Alaska in relation to all other states requires that the company you select have extensive experience in moving people to, from, and within. The rural territories, the rugged terrain, and the fact that it is separated from the rest of the US by Canada makes it a much more difficult destination. However, our movers are very familiar with the lay of the land, making it into much less of a challenge than to those less experienced.
Reputation: When narrowing down a list of potential companies, you will want to obtain some very basic information, such as previous client references, online review patterns, and even insurance limitations. A reputable company will be very straightforward and transparent with these business dealings, so make sure you feel comfortable with the information they provide upon request.
- Additional Tip: When researching online reviews, remember that people tend to recount negative experiences more than positive ones, so unless there is a clear pattern of incompetence, a few not-so-stellar reviews should not necessary be a deal breaker.
Cost: The most expensive company does not necessarily imply the best in the business. There are many budget-friendly movers who will work just as hard without the high price tag. Our relocation specialists will work alongside you to complete a package that not only fits your budget, but also gives you exactly what you need to make your move as stress-free as possible.
