Alaska – The Last Frontier. If you’re planning a move to Alaska, you will need the help of an experienced, professional moving company. When it comes to professional Alaska relocation services, Golden North Van Lines has the expertise gained from years of successfully moving people and their belongings to and from Alaska. Moving to Alaska means you’re in store for an adventure but moving your household goods to your new home should be something you are confident will go smoothly. The right moving company can help make the transition less worrisome for you.
Before you pack, you need to be aware of the items that simply cannot be shipped. Your moving company should tell you, but if they don’t, here are some common household items that are prohibited:
- Ammonia, bleach, or disinfectant cleaners
- Antifreeze compounds
- Corrosive liquids (acids, rust preventing compounds, photographic fluids)
- Explosives of any kind
- Fire extinguishers
- Gasoline, compressed gas, butane, oil
- House paint
- Open alcohol containers
- Open containers of any liquids
- Open unsealed food containers
- Perishable food
- Propane tanks or cans
Forthrightness and trustworthiness are two qualities you want in your professional Alaska relocation service. Look for a service that is certified by the American Moving and Storage Association (AMSA). This certification requires compliance with ethical guidelines, so that you, the customer, can feel confident your moving company will be up front and honest with you. If a company is certified, their logo should be displayed prominently and easy to spot on their website home page.
Climate must be considered for every step of the journey from start to finish, so it is prudent to choose a company that monitors climate, can control the environment your belongings are kept in, and is prepared for adverse weather conditions to avoid damage to your household goods. The Alaska relocation service you choose should have the capability to maintain a consistent temperature where your personal belongings are kept, no matter whether they are in a trailer or a storage unit.
At Golden North Van Lines, we’re proud to offer our customers large, climate-controlled warehouse facilities. Your household goods should also be kept secure, safe from damage or theft while in storage and in transit. Besides climate and weather, the care with which your personal goods are handled is vital to your belongings arriving at their destination safely. When you choose us as your Alaska relocation service, you can rest assured in the knowledge that we will treat your move as if it were our own. We have a strong commitment to delivering the best quality moving experience possible.
On the day of your move, be sure to have an inventory checklist and clearly labeled boxes. Stay at your location until everything is securely loaded on the moving truck, make one last tour to make sure nothing gets missed, and sign your inventory list. Both you and the driver should have a copy of the same list. Double check that the destination address is correct, and make sure you and the coordinator exchange working phone numbers so that you can be reached in the event of an emergency.
