We Can Help You With
What to pack when moving to Ketchikan
In many cases, moving means reevaluating your belongings: what to bring with you, and what to leave behind.
When moving to Alaska — whether somewhere relatively accessible like Ketchikan or Anchorage, or somewhere more remote in the bush — we recommend you bring your belongings with you as finding new “stuff” in Alaska can be both challenging and expensive.Read More
Ketchikan, being a major port, can make it easier to move your belongings into and out of Alaska.
Talk to one of our local moving consultants. We can help explain what’s involved in a move to Ketchikan, what the costs might be, the best ways to pack and prepare your belongings for shipping (whether by air or by sea), and even the best times of year to make the move.

Life and living in Ketchikan
Let’s cut to the chase: Ketchikan is wet. It’s in the middle of a rainforest — The Tongass National Forest, which is approximately 17 million acres — and can get as much as 160 inches of rain in a year. But that’s also why people move there: the rain makes it a lush and captivating place to live.
Note that it’s a temperate place as well: it rarely gets too cold, and it never gets too hot, making it ideal for outdoor recreation, such as hunting and fishing. In fact, with salmon, eagles, whales, bears, and so much more, the wildlife is a huge draw for people moving to Ketchikan.Read More
But it’s not all outdoorsy stuff in Ketchikan: there are many wonderful restaurants, plenty of shops (both boutiques with local goods and curios, and retail storefronts with more standard fare and commodities), as well as a handful of bars, hotels, and more.
And let’s not forget about the totem poles for which Ketchikan is world-renowned! The Totem Heritage Center has more than 30 original totems, many of which date back to the 1800s. Additionally, standing totems may be seen at Saxman Village, Totem Bight State Park, and elsewhere.
