What to Look for In a Mover
- The mover you hire should have at least a decade of history in the moving industry.
- All moving companies are required by law to have a license issued from the state in which they’re located. Therefore, your mover should have an Arkansas license.
- It is mandatory for all licensed movers to carry insurance coverage according to the state’s regulations. This coverage is typically just a percentage of the true value of your possessions so ask the mover about additional insurance packages if you wish for full value of your things to be protected by insurance.
- The company’s customer service representatives should find it easy to answer your questions and assist you with any of your concerns.
- The mover should be registered with the Department of Transportation and have a positive reputation as shown on the website for the Better Business Bureau.

The Cost of Moving
It is much too difficult for a moving company to determine a customer’s overall cost for services until certain details have been addressed. Unfortunately, some of the details that affect the cost of your move through professionals aren’t known until the relocation process has been completed. Because of this, a lot of moving companies will offer those interested, non-binding estimates. These estimates are quick and free. In most cases, you can get this free quote by calling in or submitting an online moving calculator form.
We recommend calling in for a quote. This allows you to ask the mover’s representative questions. One of your inquiries should include asking about any discounts or promotional deals that you might qualify for. Although getting your free quote in this manner isn’t as fast as using the online calculator, it is more personable and typically more accurate since you’re able to provide more detail.

Preparing for a Move
There are ways you can help out the movers to ensure that the process goes along safely, quickly and overall more efficiently. By preparing for the mover’s arrival, you will have fulfilled most of your responsibility in the moving process. Here is how you can help…
- Have your Arkansas home all spruced up so that there is nothing that might hinder the movers from performing their jobs. For instance, pick up clutter and remove things hanging from ceilings or doorways.
- Have somewhere close to the home and on solid ground for the moving truck to park.
- On moving day, there shouldn’t be any kids or indoor pets around the house.
- Transfer all of your utilities after the scheduled moving day so that the movers still have electricity and access to other utility services if necessary.
