Good job!

They were efficient, hard working, and careful with my furniture. They wrapped things that could break, asked where I wanted boxes I forgot to mark and overall were very polite!

Fantastic! Although I hope we won't be moving again anytime soon, I would absolutely recommend them. The movers were efficient and courteous and made our move much easier than I expected it to be.

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.
