Hiring Professional Movers
Perhaps the biggest thing to know before you go ahead and jump online to find the cheapest and most reliable moving companies near your home in Arkadelphia is what traits they should possess. It is especially important that you understand the qualities that make up a great, dependable mover if you are to choose one that you can trust with the handling and transporting of your possessions. Before you start your search online, here are the things that the moving company should showcase if you are to hire them…
- They should have the ability to modify a plan suited to your budget and relocation needs or services directed to assist that type of relocation specifically.
- All moving companies are required by law to possess a license from the state in which they are situated. In this case, Arkansas.
- As a licensed relocation company, they must all carry insurance coverage that satisfies the requirements held by the State of Arkansas. Since this coverage doesn’t often cover the entire value of a person or family’s belongings, you may want to inquire about additional insurance options.
- The mover should have friendly, knowledgeable, helpful customer service representatives available at least during business hours.
- It is important that the mover maintain a positive reputation. Check review sites for good reviews and ratings left by previous clients of the moving company.
- The mover should be nearby your home in Arkadelphia so that they are familiar with the area.
- They should have reasonable, low rates and no demand for full payment before the move has been carried out successfully.

The Cost of Moving
At first, it is much too hard to dictate exactly what your moving services will cost. That’s is exactly why most moving companies will offer free, quick estimates. These types of estimates are not accurate quotes but more or less a faster way to give you somewhat of an idea of what you might pay in the end. This way, you can better prepare for the costs. We also suggest that you use these quotes while comparing all the information you’ve learned about each local mover as you decide on whom to hire.
If you are truly worried about the cost of your move, we can tell you that on average, a state to state move cost typically anywhere between $2,000 to $4,000 per household. If you wish to reduce the cost of your moving services through professionals as much as possible, there are ways you can minimize the costs. Here is how…
- Instead of purchasing full packaging services which tends to be more convenient, choose to pack with the help of friends and family to cost the costs a little more.
- Save lightly used boxes, old linens, newspaper, paper or Styrofoam plates, and other soft materials for packing purposes.
- Go through your things before you even begin to pack. Throw away any items that are broken or in bad condition. Donate or sell items that are in decent condition yet that you have no use for. If you have time, hold a garage sale to earn some extra cash before the relocation takes place. Reducing the weight of your things that the moving company is responsible for will also reduce the overall cost of your relocations services through them.
- Try to book with the mover during the slower months (typically winter season). Many moving companies drop their rates at these times of the year. Don’t forget to also inquire about any discounts or promotions you might be able to take advantage of.

Preparing for a Move
Even after you hire a mover, you will have some obligations to fulfill before they even come knocking on your door in Arkadelphia ready to load the truck with your belongings. Luckily, these tasks are simple. All you must do to assure a safe, swift and successful relocation is make sure that your house is cleaned up and that the moving technicians have plenty of room to maneuver around to retrieve your packed things and furniture for loading. You must also make sure that there are no distractions and that they have somewhere close to the home to park the truck.
