How Much Will It Cost to Hire My Alaska Long Distance Movers?
There are so many factors that come into play when it comes to the cost of your relocation through professionals. Luckily, it’s safe to assume that the price of moving with the help of experts is less costly than doing it on your own. With so many moving companies available, finding services that you can afford shouldn’t be too difficult, just make sure you’re hiring a mover with experience and a positive reputation.
Before you hire just any mover for the job, compare the rates and gather quotes from several companies. They should offer free estimates based on the information you provide them. Of course, this may not be an accurate rate assuming they don’t know the weight of your possessions, but it will be a roundabout figure to base your decisions around. Remember, the cost of moving shouldn’t be astronomical. Never assume that a company is worth hiring due to their higher service rates. This doesn’t mean they’re the best company to trust for your relocation.
Before You Sign a Contract…
There is a lot included in a contract with a residential or commercial moving company. Don’t ever sign it before thoroughly going over it and understanding what it is you’re agreeing to. What should be mentioned in the contract includes:
- All the services you decided upon for the move such as full service packing and other options. Make sure the price and rates for each service is also mentioned.
- All personal information must be correct. Check names, numbers and addresses.
- Everything you were told by the professionals should be listed accurately in the contract. Be sure there is nothing missing and that anything you’re concerned with is addressed in the documentation.
- Make sure the moving company’s insurance policy covers the full value of your belongings and that their stipulations involving their insurance are listed in the contract. Whether you’re moving state to state or coast to coast, your possessions should remain protected.
Your Liability during the Move
As the person hiring the moving company for services, you too are liable for certain matters involving the relocation. By fulfilling these obligations, you’re only assuring a safer move for everyone involved.
- Keep your valuables safe with you instead of packing them up for the movers to take.
- Always look over your contract with the mover before signing anything.
- Pack up all boxes and label them with the room they are to go in. Make sure all hallways and entryways are open to walk through. You don’t want to create any hazards for the movers on moving day.
- Count out all your boxes and furniture pieces and write out a list. Moving companies will often have their experts create an inventory list too. Get a copy for your own records.

What’s the best way to move to Alaska?
There are three ways to move to Alaska:
- Over waterways – this can be a more treacherous way to move your items. Your goods will be exposed to extra handling because it is loaded into a container first then onto a wooden crate. A freight hauler then transports it from a port in Seattle or Tacoma, Washington OR Anchorage, Alaska. Once on the water, it’s hopeful that the seas are calm, so there is less movement, and your items aren’t tossed around. Once at the destination port, the containers are unloaded and await loading onto a truck and delivered to your destination.
- By air – this is not considered a viable option because of access to airports and cost.
- By highway – considered the most viable option because moving vans can load up and door-to-door or terminal-to-terminal.
How do I file a complaint against a moving company?
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) website provides a list that allows you to look up interstate moving companies by state so you can review their complaint history and the company’s on-road safety performance records.
