Moving to Alaska?

Alaska is a land of adventure with mystical glaciers, enigmatic northern lights, pristine water bodies, and flora and fauna that is so distinctly indigenous to the land. The name Alaska originated from the Yupik word “Alyeska” which means “the mainland” or “the object to which the sea breaks against.”

Alaska is commonly known as the Last Frontier, as it was the 49th state to be admitted into the Union. It is also called “the Land of Midnight Sun,” as certain regions throughout northern Alaska during summer feature almost 24 continuous hours of sunlight every day.

The blending of various cultures, that of Europeans and Russians, has allowed Alaska to evolve into a state where it embraces the future, while still rooted in tradition. The Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race, World Ice Art Championships, Sitka Whale Fest, and Stikine River Garnet Fest are some of the popular events in Alaska.

If you’re moving to Alaska, there are a lot of things you’re going to need to know. Luckily, you’ve come to the right place.

That being said, here are explanations of some of the tricky terms and fine print you might encounter on your bill of lading.
Types of Moving Vehicles
Regardless of how far away you are moving and the amount of stuff you bring with you, you are likely to need a truck. You may plan on renting one to drive yourself, or you might decide to hire a moving company to transport your things for you. Either way, there are many different trucks and vans designed for different types of moves. The following is a list of the most common trucks and moving vans.

These items could include pianos, pets, art, and pool tables.
Different Types of Moving Services
The moving company you choose to hire will depend on the type of move you need to complete. Are you moving local, long distance, internationally? Do you need full service, or just moving help? Knowing the answers to these questions will help you get a more accurate estimate for your move.

I really have nothing bad to say about this company at all. Getting a quote was easy, and I was surprised how accurate it was. I've read a lot of horror stories online about other companies, but this one had some really great reviews so I decided to give them a try. Really glad I did, no regrets and no complaints. Great job, will hire them again in the future.

Ability Moving and Storage LLC
They were very professional. They were very courteous. The head gentleman come out with two of his employees. They made sure to either - one put booties on and the other took his shoes off -that was going to be in here to assemble the loveseat. Like I said, they were very courteous, they were every careful on what they did. They were just - the experience was very wonderful. That's the only way I can explain it.
