Alaska is a big state, the largest in the US by area – 663,268 square miles. And the cost for moving to different parts of the state will be different, based on where you are moving from.
A moving company will consider multiple factors which include your current location, the destination you are moving to, the volume of household belongings you move, the season you move, and the type of moving service while calculating the moving cost.
Here’s an approximate moving cost from different states to Alaska
|From State||Studio/1 bedroom||2-3 bedroom||4+ bedroom|
While you prepare a moving cost estimate to Alaska, consider the following factors:
A moving company in Alaska would consider the volume of the household belongings while preparing the moving cost estimate. The heavier the moving stuff is, the costlier the moving quote will be.
The mover would consider the mileage between your current location and the destination in Alaska to determine the moving cost.
For every packing material used to wrap your belongings, the moving company will put a price tag. This would be added up to the final moving cost.
Every service taken additionally has a price. This can be disassembling and reassembling furniture, moving specialty items, or moving supplies provided by movers such as a stretch wrap, felt pads, and mattress bags. And this will reflect in the final moving cost.
Moving to Alaska, if you need storage space, the moving company would offer it but for an additional cost that would be added to the total moving cost.
Since summer is sunny and bright, most people prefer moving in this season. And this will make moving expensive. On the other side, winters have a lean business and moving companies would offer lucrative discounts and you should seriously think about moving in winter to cut down the cost.
An additional insurance against the household items that are moved is a safe decision but it would add up to the total moving cost.
Local moving companies in Alaska calculate the costs differently, on an hourly basis. This means any move within the boundaries of Alaska, especially within a 100-mile radius would cost based on the number of laborers work plus the hours taken to accomplish the task.
Usually, you would require spending between $50 and $75 per mover per hour in Alaska to move home. On average, a minimum of 2 laborers and 2 hours in addition to the 1 hour drive time is required. This means you need to pay for at least 3 hours for 2 movers. The lowest amount you can expect a mover in Alaska to bill you for a local move would be between $250 and $300 unless your move needs more hours or more people.
To get a clearer picture of moving cost within Alaska, consider the following:
|No. of bedrooms||No. of movers and hours||Approximate cost|
|1 bedroom||2 movers and 3 hours||$250-$500|
|2 bedroom||3 movers and 5 hours||$300-$750|
|3 bedroom||4 movers and 7 hours||$500-$1200|
|4 bedroom||5 movers and 9 hours||$1,200-$4,000|

While moving interstate or cross-country, a full-service moving company or a partial moving service company is the safe bet. However, to move within Alaska, you’ve got multiple options.
You can move locally even without hiring any professional assistance, but the household belongings need to be limited. This will save you hundreds of dollars.
Different ways to move somewhere inside Alaska
To move within the state, you can hire either a full-service moving company or partial moving services. While a full-service company can help you in every task associated with moving, including packing, loading, and unloading, a partial moving service can only help you load and unload the truck.
However, a partial moving service company is cheaper than a full-service mover in Alaska, making it a popular option.
Why don’t you rent a trunk and fill your household belonging it to drive to the new home? This option is extremely cheaper and you can plan the moving process as you wish. There’ll be no external internal interference and the only cost you need to bear is the truck rental, which may be somewhere around $30 to $47 per day plus the fuel cost.
Those who do not want to drive a truck can rent a portable moving container and fill it with the household stuff as per convenience. After you inform the moving company, it will deliver the portable moving container to the new address in Alaska in a few days. Usually, a portable container within 50 miles would cost you around $400 to $500.
If your household stuff is just limited, you can rent a utility trailer to fill it with your belongings. Tow it behind your vehicle and drive to the new home. In Alaska, this is one of the best and cheapest ways to move home.
Another cheapest way to relocate the home is to squeeze all your belongings into the car and drive to the new home. If you feel the stuff will not completely fit into the car, ask a friend to carry the rest of the items in his car.
While moving locally in Alaska has got multiple options, moving interstate or cross-country is different and slightly complicated.
Your moving options are greatly based on how far you’re moving and how much stuff you have.
Though the DIY option is a safe bet to move locally, it is not at all recommended for long-distance moving as the truck rental to drive cross-country is highly expensive. Also, you would require shelling out a big amount for fuel plus the hassles on road are extra.
This leaves you just two options:
When you assign a full-service moving company in Alaska the task to relocate the home cross-country, it’ll pack the belongings, load the truck, and unload it at the new home. Despite being costlier, a full-service moving company is a safe bet as it relieves you from every moving-related activity.
For those who feel a full-service moving company is a bit pricey but need professional help to relocate the home, a partial moving service company is a safe bet for its quality services. It will help you load the truck and unload it at the new home and if you need it, you can even avail packing services for an additional cost.

Hiring a moving company is always a challenge. Ask why – when you assign someone the task to relocate the home, you are giving it the right to handle every item at home, including expensive ones. And someone with a stained track record gaining access to your belongings is the last thing you need to happen.
Ensure the moving company you hire is genuine and it has not changed the name in the past.
It needs to be licensed and registered as only licensed movers can take your stuff interstate.
Since to move the home interstate, the truck needs to cross Canada, the moving company in Alaska should have all the papers required.
You are fortunate that moving companies in our network are properly licensed and certified and you don’t need to fear that your household items will be lost.
And in case you’re hiring a mover in Alaska outside us, you need to confirm:
Hire a professional moving company in Alaska to pack your belongings. Being an expert in packing, the mover will bring high-quality packing materials and cartons and ensure that all china, glassware, and crystal items are wrapped individually before packing, all rugs and carpets are rolled and wrapped, all large or valuable furniture pieces and appliances are padded for transport and that other such measures are taken on your behalf.
When you approach a moving company in Alaska, you need to consider:
In normal cases, a mover in Alaska delivers household stuff within the state the same day or the next. However, if you are moving cross-country, you need to give a week or more as the truck needs to cross Canada. The delivery date is greatly influenced by multiple factors like the distance, climate conditions, and the route is taken. You can ask the mover in Alaska about the delivery date and most often it would be delivered within the assured date.
When you discuss with a moving company in Alaska, it will offer a rough estimate and will send a representative to the home to take the stock of every item. After analyzing every household item at home, both big and small, the representative will provide the final quote, which you can further negotiate. However, never agree to a moving quote that’s provided over the phone and you should ask the company to send a representative to the home to look at the entire belongings.
No, you should never pay in full before the household items reach the new home. A genuine moving company will never demand advance payment as it is confident about its quality of service. And whenever a moving company demands cash payment in advance, you should drop the plan as it can be a moving scam.
