Now that you have a buyer for your house and have a new residence ready to go, party time's over—it is time to box up all your possessions and move them across town to the new home. Since you're just going a few blocks or maybe a couple miles away, it is alluring to try to execute the move on your own--after all, how difficult can it be to rent a truck and get some friends over to throw your furniture into the back of the truck?

Ask anyone who has moved recently--it can be (and normally is) really, really hard. Moving is enough 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 a truck and be able to do it flawlessly. Your kids are probably worried about changing schools and making friends, your significant other is panicked about a new gas station 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 advantages. First, they know the ins and outs of the area and shouldn’t should not be reliant on their phones to navigate to your new house. In addition, they should know what size of truck will best work for which areas 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 great job for you--word of mouth travels fast, and if you are not pleased with the move, then they have to deal with the bad reviews. When you hire locally, you are also keeping the in-town economy going-- a win/win for everybody in Little Rock

Questions They Will Have

When you contact the movers, they will have a list of questions, so keep this basic information ready. Most of it you know without really thinking about it, but there may be one or two questions that you may have to think about. It is probably a smart idea to make an inventory of your stuff, room by room, because moving is mind-boggling enough that you do not want to forget all the stuff in the basement.

How many bedrooms? Do you have a barn, basement, storage shed, or all three? Does your garage have a loft? Do you have a pool table, or anything really, really awkward like a standing safe? Any play equipment like swing sets or basketball goals? How about any outside items that will be moving?

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

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