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 “you pack, we drive” service with prices that compare to truck rental.

Equipment Options

U-Pack offers three equipment options for moves in and out of Alaska, depending on your locations, delivery options and home size:

  • Moving trailer: 28’ metal trailer with flexible space — use as little as 5 linear feet or up to the entire trailer. Available for door-to-door moving in select locations in Alaska.
  • ReloCube containers: 6’ x 7’ x 8’ metal containers available for loading at a service center in Alaska. Each container can hold the furniture and contents of one room.
  • Ocean containers: 40’ metal containers that are available for door-to-door delivery in most locations. This option gives you use of the entire container, so it’s best for larger homes.

Moving From Alaska

Here’s how U-Pack works when moving from Alaska:

  • We bring the equipment to your home (or you load at a service center)
  • You load everything in the equipment
  • It gets shipped to Anchorage, and then it sails to Tacoma, WA
  • It travels from Tacoma to your home
  • You unload
  • U-Pack picks up the empty equipment

If you need to add storage, it’s available at one of our service centers in the lower 48. You can also add loading or unloading help, moving boxes and other services. Call a moving consultant at 877-453-7274 to explore your options.

Moving to Alaska

U-Pack can also move you from the lower 48 to Alaska. It just works in reverse: We bring the equipment to your home and you load. We transport the shipment to Tacoma, WA, and it sails to Anchorage. If your location has door-to-door delivery, then it travels from Anchorage to your home, where you unload. Get a free moving quote to find out more about moving to Alaska.

Alaska Military Moves

Alaska is home to many military members, who serve at one of these four notable military installations:

  • Fort Greely
  • Fort Wainwright
  • Eielson AFB
  • Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson (also known as JBER)

If you received PCS orders to or from one of these bases in Alaska, you can PCS to Alaska with U-Pack.

What You’ll Find after Moving

There are several things you may notice when moving from Alaska:

  • Sales tax. Alaska has no sales tax, so depending on where you’re moving, you’ll 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.
