Moving Tips

   Let Ace assist you with your move or relocation. Below are some tips to help you with your moving process. For more tips/information on moving/relocating please feel free to contact a friendly representative at Ace.

   Moving INTO or OUT OF Alaska

   Why Hire A Moving Company?

   You are not simply moving into or out of the state of Alaska. You are R-E-L-O-C-A-T-I-N-G. This process of relocation involves preparation. Relocation usually does not happen within a few weeks, but usually takes anywhere from 90-120 days!

   Inevitably, somewhere in the preparation stage you're wondering if you can save time and money by just simply leasing a container, filling it yourself, closing the doors and having it hauled away ... and, in a few weeks, plop it on your lawn, empty it out and Voila! .. you're moved!

   Sounds easy, right? Here are some of the most common advantages and disadvantages of a Container Move.

Container Move Advantages

  • The container drops in the street
  • You put everything into it including your vehicle
  • You secure the items to keep them from bouncing around while in transit
  • The container arrives at your destination and is parked in the street.
  • You unload everything including your car

Container Move Disadvantages

  • You must find a ramp to get into and out of your container .. including one for your car (if shipped).
  • You must know how to pack all of your items in an optimal configuration because you're paying by the linear foot.
  • You must know how to pack all of your items in an optimal configuration to keep the load tight, but not crush the bottom items.
  • You must know how to secure all of your items to keep them from bouncing around, especially if you are shipping your car inside.
  • You have to supply your own dollys, walkboard, shipping blankets, and load bars for the bulk-head
  • You must know how to build a proper bulk-head.
  • You must know how to configure or build chocks, as well as tie-downs for your vehicle.
  • There is a greater increase for damage if your container travels by rail due to frequent jarring during car hookups and disconnects.
  • You will be incurring ALL liability for any damage which occurs during transit.
