You need to know that every move to Arkansas is different and there is no ‘one-size-fits-all’ when it comes to the moving cost to Arkansas.
Why do you say so?
Because, a long-distance moving cost is determined by several factors including the distance, the volume of household items you move, and the mode of transport you choose. The moving company you hire also has its criteria in deciding the cost.
Arkansas is spread over 53,179 square miles and moving to every part of Arkansas would cost you differently. You may be moving to Arkansans from a neighboring state (Louisiana, Oklahoma, or Mississippi) or a faraway state (Maine, Vermont, or Washington) and the cost would be different based on where you are moving in.
Here’s an approximate moving cost from different states to Arkansas
|From State||Studio/1 bedroom||2-3 bedroom||4+ bedroom|
While you calculate the moving cost to Arkansas, consider the following factors:
The quantity of household items you move to the new home is crucial in determining the moving cost. The more stuff you have, the costlier the move will be.
A mover in Arkansas will consider the distance between two locations (the current home and the home you are moving to) to calculate the total moving cost.
While you hire a moving company, it will add the cost for packing materials to the total moving cost.
A mover in Arkansas will take up an add-on service but it would reflect in the total moving cost.
Moving to Arkansas, you may require a storage unit to stock your belongings but the rental will be added to the total moving cost.
The date of moving is vital as summers are expensive to pack your belongings to the new home. If cutting down the moving cost is your goal, plan to move in winter. The chances of getting attractive deals are also high in winter.
The additional insurance against the belongings that are moved will add up to the moving cost.
Any move within the state is a local move, especially when it is within a 100-mile radius. A mover in Arkansas calculates the local moving cost differently, on an hourly basis depending on how many laborers are required to complete the task.
When you relocate within Arkansas, a minimum of 2 workers would require 2 hours to complete the task in addition to the 1 hour drive time. This means you’ll be paying for at least 3 hours for 2 movers. In Arkansas, the average cost is roughly around $50-$75 per mover per hour. This means, to move within Arkansas, you may require paying between $250 and $300, unless your move needs more hours or more people.
To get a clearer picture of moving cost within Arkansas, consider the following:
|No. of bedrooms||No. of movers and hours||Approximate cost|
|1 bedroom||2 movers and 3 hours||$250-$500|
|2 bedroom||3 movers and 5 hours||$300-$750|
|3 bedroom||4 movers and 7 hours||$500-$1200|
|4 bedroom||5 movers and 9 hours||$1,200-$4,000|

To move outside Arkansas (interstate or long-distance), you need to rely upon a full-service moving company or a partial moving service company. However, when you are moving within the state, multiple options are available that are even cheaper.
Different ways to move somewhere inside Arkansas
The advantage of renting a professional moving company is that the risk factor is minimal. As the company is an expert in the process of packing and loading the truck, you are relieved from the worries of relocating the home.
A full-service moving company in Arkansas is costlier than a partial moving service company as it handles every aspect of moving. Whereas, a partial moving company will only help you load the truck and unload it.
When you don’t need to spend much on moving, the best way to relocate the home is to hire a rent, fill it with your belongings, and drive to the new home. You can hire a moving truck and pack every household belonging to load them into the truck. The only cost you need to bear is the truck rental, which may be somewhere around $30 to $47 per day plus the fuel cost.
Portable moving containers are popular for their convenience factor. You sign a contract with a moving company in Arkansas for a portable container and it will reach your home on time. You can fill it at your convenience and the company will deliver the container to your new home in the next few days. A portable container within 50 miles would cost you around $400 to $500.
If moving on a minimal budget is your goal, you can rent a utility trailer and tow it behind your vehicle to carry your household items. The only condition is that your vehicle must have a trailer hitch for that.
When your household stuff is too little to fit in a car you can squeeze them in your car and drive away. Maybe it is a little tough to squeeze everything into the car with open seats, floors, and a trunk. And if the volume is a little more than what can be fit inside your vehicle, take the help of a friend and his car.
Though you’ve many options to move within Arkansas, moving interstate or cross-country is a little different. Here, the moving options are greatly based on how far you’re moving and how much you are taking along with you.
While moving locally, DIY was a popular option but when moving cross-country, it is not a safe bet because the trucks are expensive to drive cross country and not to mention the gas, drive time, and all the headaches that come with driving long distances.
You can drive a truck to the next state but not for a distance of 1,000 miles or more. For that, you might want to consider the following two options:
Usually people hire a full-service moving company to move long-distance or cross-country they are spared from every moving-related tension. All you need is to pay the mover and watch the laborers do the task. A full-service moving company in Arkansas will handle special items and can also take up additional add-ons whenever required.
When a full-service moving company does not fit it into your budget, you can consider hiring a partial moving service provider that is cheaper but helps you load and unload the truck.
Similarly, you may look into the moving container options.

One of the biggest challenges in hiring a moving company is reliability. When you entrust a moving company in Arkansas with the task to relocate the home, it gains the access to the very household item at home. You need to ensure that the mover is trustworthy to handle every item, including expensive ones.
You’re lucky to hire a moving company through MoverJunction as our network only has licensed and registered moving companies. We verify the license and confirm its background before permitting a moving company into our network.
However, in case you’re hiring a mover in Arkansas outside us, you need to confirm:
Moving quotes can be tweaked but you need to know the art of negotiation. For that, gather a minimum of 4 moving quotes and compare each one to understand them better. Decide the services that can be omitted and discuss with the moving companies about them. Analyze how much difference it would make in the total cost.
If nothing works out, reveal to them the competing movers’ quotes and how much discount each mover is offering you show. As no company wants to lose the business, it is sure that the moving company will be ready to slash the cost.
Some other ways to bring down the moving cost include:
What you receive from a mover in the initial discussion is a rough estimate. A moving representative will visit your home to take the stock of every item. After analyzing every household item at home, both big and small, he will give you the final quote, which you can further negotiate. As a rule of the thumb, never agree to a moving quote that’s provided over the phone. If a mover does not seem to plan a home visit, you can request one. Because any quote without watching your home and the items there can lead to future complications.
When you approach a moving company in Arkansas, you need to consider:
No, you should not pay in full before the household items reach the new home. A genuine moving company in Arkansas will never demand advance payment as it is confident about its quality of service. And whenever a moving company demands cash payment in advance, you should drop the plan as it can be a moving scam.
Usually, auto moving companies handle the transport of cars. They are specialized in car moving and the costs are calculated differently. However, a few home moving companies also help you move cars to the new home in Tennessee. To know more about auto moving, read the MoverJunction auto moving guide.
You need to hire a moving company as early as possible. Once you approach a moving company in Arkansas, a representative will visit your home to take stock of the belongings and will offer you the final quote. As you will approach multiple movers, there should be space for every company representative to visit the home. And to analyze multiple quotes to negotiate with the movers will take another week. Hence, for a better moving experience, there should be a 6-week-window between your first visit and the moving date.
