Cheap Movers in Blytheville
People and businesses alike have reasons to find a new place in this life to call “home”. Whether the purposes be personal or for business there are steps and costs along the way you’ll have to encounter and work through. Saving money without sacrificing efficiency and the safety of your belongings is a key component to a satisfying moving process. What’s fantastic about the Blytheville, AR area is that quality and able bodied movers are readily available if you know what resources to explore.
Hiring Professional Movers
The benefit a moving business provides depends on the scale of your move and the type of services you require. A move across town with limited furniture doesn’t require the same effort as a family or a business would require. One thing for certain is that the peace of mind a mover provides is quite the stress relief. Knowing the entirety of your belongings are being handled and transported by professionals is beneficial in lots of ways. For starters it frees up your time to handle other aspects of your move. Plus many of the expenses you pay your mover for, you’d end up paying for anyway such as fuel and a truck rental.
Choosing the right mover for you comes with certain caveats one will need to consider. It’s always important to the explore the legality of your mover and whether or not they are licensed and insured like they need to be. Each state has their own set of stipulations for moving companies but if a prospective mover transports goods from state to state, then they are required to have a USDOT number with the Department of Transportation. On their website you can explore information that might not be available otherwise.
Using Google Maps and entering a search inquiry such as “movers near me” will reveal a host of options available to you. Google Maps will show their exact locations and give links to their website and driving directions. There you will see a star review system that is on a 5 star scale with 1 being the worst and 5 being the best. Companies with many reviews of consistently good quality is a business to consider inquiring to. Also asking family and friends about their moving experience may yield good results and land you a referral bonus as well.

The Cost of Moving
Moving comes with expenses and time consuming tasks that take place over the course of the months leading up to your move, and shortly thereafter. Some costs are completely unavoidable as anything involved with relocating your items is a moving expense. A great aspect about movers is that they perform each unavoidable expense superiorly to the common layman. They work quicker, safer with experience transporting large cargo holds over great distances reliably. Most reputable movers will even align their service offerings with your specific needs so you don’t end up paying for services you’d rather not have.
As time saving as having a mover undertake the total workload of your move is, it may not be as valuable to you as reducing your overall expense. Fortunately enough, there are large number of alternative cost saving measures that’ll help keep the move within your budget.
- The number one thing anyone can do when it comes to moving is to prepare for it as early as you can. This includes scheduling your movers at least 2 months in advance.
- Compare movers and garner in home estimates. Ask prospective movers about binding and not to exceed quotes for these will guarantee a price you can work around.
- Be open to different moving dates as this will keep the price low. Moving during the non peak times of the year will also cut costs.
- Garnering boxes from local stores and packaging your own items will result in huge savings. Be sure to box up to a mover’s standards to avoid any hassle or interruptions.
- Inquire as to any affiliate or membership discounts such as AAA or by being a military member.
- Standard, included insurance only gives you a valuation for your goods which would end up not paying for a broken television. Consider actual insurance coverage if your items justify the need.

Preparing for a Move
Moving day is the culmination of the laundry list of tasks, transfers and packing that leads up to it. If you’re diligent in your efforts leading up to moving day, then it’ll go by like a breeze. We recommend folks to make a checklist of tasks they need to complete prior to moving. A notebook could serve this function as new things may come up along the way that you didn’t anticipate needing to do. When moving day arrives there are some ways to prepare your home for your movers.
- Have your kids or pets stay with a friend for the day. It’ll keep their stress low and help the day go by smoothly.
- Cover the walkways of your home with plastic to protect your carpets from the inevitable foot traffic
- If you decided to package items, have them against the walls of the rooms to avoid clutter
- Make sure you have everything packed before your movers arrive. All too often folks are still packing and it ends up costing them more money in labor.
- Unplugging your appliances and letting your movers know which items need disassembled will hasten the day.
- Ensure parking is available for your movers.
- If your movers do a good job consider heading to an ATM and giving them a tip
