Booking Tips & Resources

  • Is your company authorized to do business by the Department of Transportation? If so, what's your DOT #? If a company's DOT # is not prevalently displayed on their website and/or trucks this can be a red flag. Companies that are not in good standing with DOT rules and regs put you and your belongings at risk.

  • What if you have changes to your move plans? It is very normal for changes to arise after your original quote conversations.  Ask how changes are handled within the company.  You want easy and flexible accommodations as it is very normal and expected to have changes along the way.  You want to verify the company you are choosing is flexible and accommodating.
  • Time to book: Our experience is that reputable movers in Northwest Arkansas book out up to 30 days in advance March through October. November through February is the typical slow season in the moving industry; however, in a growing market like Northwest Arkansas we have seen some of our busiest times during this supposedly slow period. So it's wise to book and lock in with a reputable mover as soon as you can get your move date set. The last thing you want after doing your homework on reputable movers is to find out they are all booked out.
  • Getting Booking Agreement in Writing It is in the best interest of customers and movers alike to have writen agreements in place for your move. Be careful and watch out for companies that are hesitant to send you move contracts in writing.
  • Pre-Move Communications You will be notified via email, phone or text 24hr prior to your move date and time.
  • On Time Arrival We pride ourselves on being on time and ready to help. If an unforseen delay happens, expect a phone call.
  • Greeting and Walk Through You will be greeted by the crew and they will request a walk through of your home to ensure we are all on the same page with original booking scope. If their are changes, no worries at at, it's normal and easy for us to revise your scope/estimate on our paperwork. After walk through a B2 Crew leader will request your signatures on our paperwork.

Price Transparency @ B2 Moving

  • Total Transparency Every estimate and charge is transparently itemized on all paperwork before and after your service is complete. e.g. Labor, Materials, Transportation, Full Value Protection, etc.
  • Published Pricing Online Our website prominatly shows our hourly pricing online. We know it's always one of the first questions that gets asked so we think it's very important to show and help NWA customers out in their planning process. We are in the business of pleasing our customers so we want to give them what they want.
  • High Side Estimates We like to give each customer the high end estimate so they can prepare and plan accordinaly. We understand we will lose business to our competitors that give low end estimates just to win the job; however, we believe winning a job this way is not in our customer or B2's long term interest so we do not do business that way.
  • Under Promise, Over Deliver Assuming no scope changes, we strive for every final bill to our customers to come in under their estimate. And if we can do this while holding up to our high operational standards, we know we have a great chance to achieve our mission of leaving a good name after every job.

Of course, the cost may vary depending your specific situation, we will always give you estimates of your specific cost before beginning the packing process.
  • How long does it take to pack 50 boxes? We see it taking 3 packers approximatelty 5 hours +/- to pack 50 boxes. The more fragile items you have to longer it takes.
  • How is the Price Calculated? Hourly labor rate * # of hrs (charged in 15min increments) + actual materials used e.g. box types, bubble wrap, paper wrap, tape. We count and true up the actual materials used at the end of each job so you only get charged for what's used.

This is the typical moderatly furnished 3BR with normal kitchen, living Room, and dinning room with lightly furnish items in garage, attic, and outside. The more loose items you have to higher the cost. We highly recommend before your move day to have all loose items packed into boxes to make for a faster move service and to save you money.
