Residential relocating can be overwhelming and stressful. As with all relocations, the entire process must be handled with care. Luckily, finding dependable Arkansas relocation services is easier than you might assume. The professionals will take great care of everything they relocate to the new quarters.

Should any of these items become lost, stolen or damaged, it could become a nightmare to your pocketbook. That’s why it is best to find a reliable Conway, AR moving company that suit your needs. Trying to move everything on your own or even hiring the wrong company could be detrimental.
By conducting thorough research and reading any online reviews or ratings posted for the companies, you will be able to weed out the good from the bad. Previous clients will often times post or rate the companies based on the experiences they had with the company. Stay away from the companies with a bad reputation.
Hiring Professional Movers
Before we explain how to find the proper moving company for your relocation needs, we would first like to explain why you should hire a mover. Some people prefer to move without the assistance of professional movers and in some cases, this method can be reliable for those who have experience with moving. If you are new to moving, you will more than likely miss critical steps that need to be taken in order to have a successful move. Not only can they provide safe transportation, but they will be able to work fast and efficiently all while keeping your valuables out of harm’s way.
Moving experts are trained to provide solutions for many different problems that can happen during a move that might have you baffled. They can provide tools which can assist in heavy lifting and they can also disassemble large pieces of furniture making it better for shipping purposes. The duty of a moving company is to relieve as much stress as possible from their customers so that they can stay focused on more important aspects of their lives.
Characteristics Your Mover Should Have
- Licensing from the State of Arkansas, a USDOT number from the Department of Transportation, and other certifications from legal agencies.
- Insurance packages that meet the demands of the state. Every state sets their own regulations regarding insurance coverage that movers and transporters must provide to every customer.
- A wonderful repute is important. Of course, you will want a mover that have a great reputation for their services. Therefore, it is wise to check out review sites such as the Better Business Bureau or Yelp to look over and read reviews and ratings.
- Make sure that the companies’ customer service reps are all eager to take your calls and answer all your questions. Having exceptional customer service is key to a successful move.

The Cost of Moving
There isn’t a simple way to come up with a total for your moving services. Although it is said that the average state to state move for a family of four is anywhere between $2,000 and nearly $5,000. To come up with an honest figure for your moving services, a mover must first consider and have the answers to very particular details. For instance, some of the things that affect your cost include…
- How much gas is per gallon
- How much time, labor and equipment is needed to complete the relocation
- How much your possessions weigh (weighed on the truck and the truck’s weight is then subtracted)
- The moving services you chose to take advantage of
- The discounts you qualified for, if any
- How many miles the movers must travel in between locations
Because all of these details must be known to calculate an accurate total, some moving companies won’t offer a binding estimate until much later in the relocation process. Therefore, many of these movers will provide those interested in their relocation services with quick, non-binding quotes either by phone or through use of an online calculator found on their website.
Non-binding quotes are great tools for those who wish to start saving for the actual cost of their relocation through professionals. They are also great info to consider while comparing all the most reputable moving companies around. Luckily, it should only take minutes of your time to collect these free quotes. However, we’d like to suggest that you call in for your quote so that you have the opportunity to speak with a rep to ask questions and have any of your concerns addressed before receiving your estimate.
