All Moving Labor in Little Rock is Not Created Equal

Moving LaborWhen face to face with the burden of moving, you could think to yourself, "I would rather not move that," and "I don't want to take 40 trips up and down the stairs."

With that mentality, you may be ready to let anyone lug those boxes for you. It doesn't matter who does it, as long as you don't have to do it, right?  Wait just a minute.

Just because someone can move boxes and is willing to carry boxes does not mean you want to let them move your boxes. Remember this: you're permitting these people in your home. They are touching all of your stuff.  You need to be selective who comes into your home.

Here are a few points to ponder when selecting moving labor in Little Rock to ensure security for you and your stuff.

Professionally Certified

This is a key requirement. Professionally certified movers in Little Rock have gone through extensive background screening, so you know they are who they say they are, and they can be trusted. Think twice before hiring a moving company in Little Rock without this certification. It's necessary for your own well-being.

Years of Experience

If you obtain a neighbor's offer to assist you move or employ the least expensive moving labor you can identify on Craigslist, you are opening yourself up to liabilities. Even if everyone is absolutely honest, they don't necessarily have the required experience when it comes to moving awkward furniture, boxes and more. What would happen if one of them scratches the wall with the couch? What will happen if they smash your good china?

And do they have the knowledge to load it all in the truck to maximize the space and prevent shifting that could lead to breakage?

Experience is particularly vital if you are also needing packing and unpacking services. There is a correct way (and an incorrect way) to pack china, crystal, rugs, TV’s, appliances and more. Pieces that are too bulky to be boxed should be carefully padded. Making silly blunders (or just being lazy) in this area could cause damage to or complete destruction of your favorite belongings.

Properly Uniformed

Picture this: It's moving day. There is someone in athletic wear boxing pictures in the family room. There is someone else in jeans packing dishes in the kitchen. And there is one person in cargo pants carrying your television out of the bedroom. All good, correct?

Except one of them is not even a mover. It's just a person who noticed an open door and some preoccupied owners, and he decided to help himself to your TV.

Therefore, it is important to hire a moving company with properly uniformed movers. You’ll know precisely who is part of the process and who isn’t--and it makes it far less likely that someone who's not would dare make an attempt to "help" you move.

Uniforms may seem like a insignificant touch, but they're a vital one.

Further, it is just more professional. A uniform is another clue that your movers are serious about what they do—it's not just a hobby.

Your movers are doing a job, but it's a very personal one. You're entrusting them with everything you own, all of the things that makes your house feel like home. Don't hand that over to just anybody.

Best. Move. Ever!
Very pleased with the overall respect and care the men gave to my possessions. Even mailing me very quickly the only thing lost in transit. Would recommend to anyone needing a long distance move.
