Household Moving to Juneau, Alaska
Juneau is the second-largest city in as well as the capital of the U.S. state of Alaska. Unlike other cities in the contiguous United states, household moving to Juneau can be difficult to find, even though it’s a large city home to over 32,400 total residents. Household moving is typically done via an interstate transport truck, but when you’re shipping to Alaska it becomes more complicated. Like auto transport companies, household movers can’t afford to simply drive through Canada – it’s too large, too barren, and customs and the like result in lots of paperwork, extra fees that you’d have to pay for, and a much more difficult experience.
To avoid all that, household moving to Juneau is usually done overseas. Like when you ship a car, a moving company will come and pick your goods up and load it onto a truck, then ship it overland to their port terminal somewhere in the Puget Sound area, normally Seattle or Tacoma, Washington. This is the best way they have of getting your household items up to Alaska, especially when it comes to price. Moving isn’t cheap, or easy, and it can take weeks to get everything finalized. We recommend that you have all your ducks in a row, as it were, when it comes time to move up to Juneau, since any delay can reverberate across your shipment and what was once just a two-day delay ends up becoming a two-week one thanks to scheduling at the port and a host of other factors.
