Moving to Arkansas?

Arkansas is a landlocked southern state whose eastern borders are marked by the mighty Mississippi River. The name Arkansas is derived from the French translation of “acansa,” a Quapaw Indian word meaning “people of the south wind.” Arkansas is known by the official nickname The Natural State. Other nicknames include: The Diamond State, The Land of Opportunity, The Cave State, The Hot Water State, and The Cradle of the Ozarks.

Before the arrival of the Europeans, Arkansas was inhabited by Native American tribes like the Quapaw, the Caddo, and the Osage. The earliest European settlers to colonize the state were the French and the Spanish. As part of the Louisiana Purchase, the state was purchased from Napoleon Bonaparte.

Arkansas’ topography is highly varied, ranging from plateaus and plains to mountains and hot springs that offer picturesque vistas and scenic byways. The Crater of Diamonds State Park is the only such place in the world that allows the general public to search for precious gems like diamonds, garnet, agate, and amethyst.

If you’re moving to Arkansas, there are a lot of things you’re going to need to know. Luckily, you’ve come to the right place.

Things to Know When Moving to Arkansas

Arkansas Climate

  • A humid subtropical climate with hot, humid summers and cool drier winters characterize the Arkansas climate. A continental climate is prevalent in certain northern highland areas. Owing to its central location, the state is susceptible to various weather systems from all directions. It experiences thunderstorms, tornadoes, hail, snow, and ice storms. Due to its distance from the coast a direct hit from a hurricane is a rarity, but traces of a tropical system can result in tremendous amount of rain over small areas. The Ozark Plateau and Ouachita Mountains form the highlands in the north and west of Arkansas, respectively. Parting the Ozark Plateau and the Ouachita Mountains is the Arkansas Valley which is the seat of the Arkansas River, the largest river in the state. The eastern and the southern portion of the state is comprised of the lowlands, the west gulf coastal plain and the fertile Mississippi alluvial plain. (Helpful Link: Arkansas Weather)

Moving Tips & Guides
What are Long Carries?
A long carry is a charge that may appear on your bill if the movers have a long distance to carry things from your home to the truck, or vice versa. They can be anticipated, but not always avoided. The moving company will have a set distance that they will carry items with no additional charge. It is measured from the rear of the truck or van to the entrance of the residence. Let's say that a mover has a maximum carry distance of 100 feet as company policy. If they end up having to carry your th
Always Look into Added Insurance ...
When hiring a moving company, be sure to familiarize yourself with their insurance policies and what they do and do not cover during a move. Some companies only offer a small amount of reimbursement for items that become damaged during a move (only 60 cents per pound!). Making sure you know ahead of time what percentage of your items will be covered may make your decision easier.
Items Not Allowed on a Moving Truck
Be sure to donate or properly dispose of any unwanted goods, and items you will not be able to transport on a commercial moving truck. Typically, movers will not move dangerous/hazardous items like chemicals or any machinery filled with gasoline, matches, explosives, ammunition aerosol cans, etc. Plants and animals will also need to be moved separately. It is not advised to put any personal documents on the moving truck like social security cards, deeds, stocks, car titles, etc.
Background Checks on Your Moving ...
Be sure to find out if the company you’re interested in hiring is reputable by performing your own background check. Search for reviews from previous customers, search for the company on the Better Business Bureau’s website and be sure to ask for references from previous customers. Make sure you feel completely comfortable with the moving company you choose before entrusting them with all your belongings.
Private vs. Chain Moving Companies
Consider these things when trying to decide between a privately-owned moving company and a large chain: Price, customer service, reputation, equipment, services offered and experience. Whatever aspects matter more to you, keep those at the top of your list.

EZ Movers
Everything was good but only thing is that there was some miscommunication between EZ movers, agent and the drivers. So that cost me a bad experience because the driver wanted to be paid in cash or check immediately, otherwise they wouldn't pick up. That information was not passed on to me, otherwise I would have prepared and got it ready. Because I had actually moved out, only my neighbors were there to help me.
