ANCHORAGE, Alaska, June 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Moving to Alaska just got easier and more affordable.  U-Haul, North America's number one choice for do-it-yourself movers, has expanded its U-Box moving and portable storage services to Alaska.  Whether you are moving to or from Alaska or making an intra-Alaska move, U-Box moving pods are the perfect solution.


You can conveniently utilize our custom-designed trailer to pick up a U-Box portable moving and storage pod, load it at your own pace and return it to be stored in our secure warehouse or shipped to your destination.

"We're thrilled to able to provide an additional service to our customer to Make Moving Easier," enthused Tom Kardys, vice president, U-Box.  "Introducing U-Box portable moving and storage is long overdue and aimed at serving all customers moving to, from or within Alaska."

Shipping with U-Box moving pods is the most affordable way to make your move to Alaska, especially during harsh winter weather. U-Box can do the driving for you and deliver your items directly to your door.  U-Box portable storage pods are roughly 5' x 8', which allows them to fit perfectly on the barges and freighters that transport items between the lower 48 and Alaska. 

U-Box moving and storage pods are designed to handle all types of climates and are great for seasonal businesses that need to pack up their shop and close down.  U-Box offers affordable storage solutions that allow a business owner to take their time packing up shop and getting their business ready for the next season.

U-Box moving pods can handle it all - couches, queen-size mattresses, armoires and appliances will fit inside.  Whether you are moving to Alaska to live, being deployed to Alaska by the military or planning to attend a college or university in Alaska, U-Box is the only portable moving and storage company that can help take the stress and complications out of coordinating the shipment of your goods.
