Local Moving Services in Little Rock--Worth the Money - Part 1

Now that you have unloaded your house and have a new one ready to go, party time is over—it's time to pack up all your belongings and get them across town to the new abode. Since you are just going a few blocks or maybe a couple miles away, it's tempting to try to execute the move on your own--after all, how hard can it be to rent a truck and get some buddies over to load your furniture?

Ask anyone who's ever relocated--it can be (and usually is) really, really hard. Moving is plenty of a stress without the anxiety of a Do-It-Yourself project, and now is not the time to think you can binge watch YouTube videos on how to pack your son or daughter’s action figure collection and have it down pat. Your kids are probably thinking about changing schools and making friends, your significant other is panicked about a new dry cleaner and driving routine, and the last thing you need to do is add to the stress by attempting a DIY move in Little Rock.

Why Local?

Why not? A local company in Little Rock has its benefits. First, they know the area and will not be depending on their phones to get you to your new residence. In addition, they should know what size of truck will best accomodate which parts of town, which can be very handy if you are moving to a gated community or a location that has truck restrictions. Second, a local company has a lot more on the line in doing a satisfactory job for you--word of mouth travels fast, and if you are not happy with the move, then they have to live with the bad reviews. When you hire locally, you're also keeping the in-town economy going-- a win/win for everybody in Little Rock

Questions They'll Have

When you call the movers, they'll have a list of questions, so have this basic information ready. Most of it you know without really thinking about it, but there will be a couple questions that you may have to think about. It is probably a smart idea to make an inventory of your things, one room at a time, because moving is overwhelming enough that you don't want to forget all the stuff in the basement.

How many bedrooms? Do you have a barn, basement, attic, or all three? Does your garage have a loft? Do you have a piano, or anything really, really heavy like a standing safe? Any play equipment like swing sets or basketball goals? How about any landscaping features that will be moving?

They'll also want to know if you have antiques or art. If you do have certain expensive things, the movers will most likely require additional information about these items.

Once you have provided this basic information, you will most likely be provided with a ballpark estimate and an option for a free in-home survey for your local move in Little Rock. An in-home survey is much more specific and measures the cost with much more precision than the initial ballpark estimate. It covers the exact services that you need. During the survey is a great time to ask the burning questions that you are pondering.
