Alaska Moving Companies
Compare U-Pack to other Alaska Moving Companies
Moving from Alaska may seem complicated due to the distance, but the right moving service can make it easy. Instead of driving a rental truck more than 1,400 miles through Canada on the Alaska Highway or paying higher rates for a full-service company, go U-Pack®. U-Pack offers affordable moving without having to do all the work. It’s a self-moving service with prices that compare to truck rental.

Details on Moving out of the State
U-Pack offers two equipment options for moves in and out of Alaska, depending on your locations, delivery options and home size:
- Moving trailer: 28’ x 8’ x 9’ with flexible space for loading — use as little as 5 linear feet or up to the entire trailer, depending on the size of your move. Door-to-door delivery is available in some Alaska locations or you can load/unload at the service center in Anchorage.
- ReloCube containers: 6’ x 7’ x 8’ metal container that typically holds one room of furniture and boxes (you can reserve one or as many as you need). Door-to-door delivery is available in some Alaska locations or you can load/unload at the service center in Anchorage.
What You’ll Find after Moving
There are several things you may notice when you no longer live Alaska:
- There is sales tax. Alaska has no sales tax, so you may need to adjust to having sales tax added to your purchases.
- A change in daylight hours. You’re leaving behind the Northern Lights and extra summer daylight, but you won’t have the very dark winter months.
- Cheaper cost of living. Alaska has a higher than average cost of living, so the new place you call home should be more affordable in terms of housing, rent, utilities and other expenses.
- No more dividend payments. Each year, Alaska residents are eligible to receive part of the state’s Permanent Fund Dividend. Moving away from Alaska means leaving that behind.
