Globalization is making the world a smaller place and with the ease of modern day travelling, it’s no wonder people are looking to move and explore the world.

Moving in and around Bentonville, AR is no different as it also presents an array of movers capable of aiding in your move. But a moving service that fits well with one person or organization may not be the best fit for your needs.

It’s important to know the ins and outs of the moving process to avoid getting taken advantage of and to get the best value out there.
Hiring Professional Movers
Movers are fantastic because of their ability to duplicate efforts with efficiency and professionalism. Having trained movers handle and care for the relocation of goods is a burden relief that everyone can benefit from. Often times folks find a lot of value in the time and energy they save while the laborious parts of moving are being tended to. Transporting one’s belongings involves a set of unavoidable expenses that need paid for irrespective of how you move. Those include fuel, vehicles, boxes, packaging, hauling equipment, laborers and much more. Not only do all those expenses come on one bill, but you get included benefits such as insurance, trained drivers, fuel efficient trucks, safe packers with load bearing boxes keeping your belongings and walls damage free.
Before deciding on a mover you’ll want to have some questions resolved before moving forward. The first of which is whether or not the potential movers are licensed and insured. Insurance and licensing requirements vary state by state, but if your mover travels across state lines, then they are required to have a Department of Transportation number issued by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Association (FMCSA). Be sure to use their mover search tool and see if there are any incidents you need to be aware of.
After ensuring that the prospective movers are legal and up to date there is further research you can do to hone in on a few candidates. The first of which is using Google and enter a variety of searches seeking moving companies close to your location. What should pop up are pages full of movers, review sites, blogs and opinion pieces. For the purposes of finding the best mover, look to review pages that have star ratings alongside commentary by their previous customers. Sites that should pop up that can paint a picture as to the quality of work movers perform include Yelp, Facebook and the Better Business Bureau.

If you plan your move ahead and give yourself enough time there are a handful of cost saving measures that can benefit you in the short and the long term.

- You can obtain cardboard boxes, newspaper and other materials by speaking with a manager at your local grocery store or big box retailer.
- Moving during the industry’s slow periods will save you money as well. Consider moving in the fall or winter and on a weekday.
