All Moving Labor in Little Rock is Not Created Equal

Moving LaborWhen faced with the job of moving, you could find yourself thinking, "I would rather not lift that," and "I don't want to take 40 trips up and down the stairs."

With that in mind, you could be ready to let anyone carry those boxes for you. It doesn't matter who does it, just so you do not have to do it, right?  Wait just a minute.

Just because someone can carry boxes and is willing to lug boxes does not mean you should let them carry your boxes. Remember this: you are allowing these people in your residence. They’re putting their hands on everything you own.  It can't be just anyone.

Here are some items to think about when choosing moving labor in Little Rock to ensure security for you and your things.

Professionally Certified

This is very important. Professionally certified movers in Little Rock have gone through extensive background screening, so you know they are who they say they are, and they are credible. Think twice before hiring a moving company in Little Rock who doesn’t background check their labor. It is crucial for your own peace of mind.

Years of Experience

If you take a friend's offer to assist you move or employ the cheapest moving labor you can turn up on Craigslist, you're opening yourself up to liabilities. Even if everyone is totally credible, they do not naturally have the required know-how when it comes to moving bulky furniture, boxes and more. What will happen if one of them dings the wall with the couch? What would happen if they break your grandmother's dishes?

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

Experience is especially important if you're also wanting packing and unpacking services. There's a right way (and an incorrect way) to pack china, crystal, rugs, TV’s, appliances and more. Pieces that are too big to be boxed should be scrupulously padded. Making amateur mistakes (or just being lazy) in this area could cause damage to or complete destruction of your favorite belongings.

We've been doing this for more than four decades. We can pack and move even the most fragile, oddly shaped, or priceless belongings safely and efficiently from here to there.

Properly Uniformed

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

Except one of them is not even a mover. It's just someone who saw an open door and some inattentive owners, and he decided to help himself to a new TV.

This is why it is important to hire a moving company with properly uniformed movers. You’ll know exactly who is part of the crew and who is not--and it makes it much less likely that someone who is not would dare make an attempt to "help" you move.

Uniforms may seem like a minute touch, but they're a crucial one.

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

Your movers are doing their job, but it is a very personal one. You're trusting them with all of your belongings, everything 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 distant move.
