Roadrunner Moving
My wife and I needed to move to a bigger place, and luckily it was just up the same street. We thought with only that short distance, the bids from moving companies would be cheap and competitive. How wrong we were! Some companies, even in the Fayetteville area where we live, were going to charge for fuel on top of having a minimum of 3-4 hours, so the bids ranged from $435.00 to $704.00 for the same service. To say the least, we experienced sticker shock. The Better Business Bureau website certainly came in handy during the process of eliminating the “greedy” and finding something feasible. That’s where we found Roadrunner Moving in Rogers. They had a two-hour minimum at $85.00 per hour—no fuel charge or travel time even driving from Rogers to Fayetteville! What sold us besides this was they were rated A+ by the BBB and had no complaints against them. For us, it was a no-brainer which moving company we wanted. Amanda, at the home office, was wonderful to work with on coordinating everything for us.On the day of our move, Brian and John were delayed by highway construction in Rogers, but Amanda promptly called to let us know. As soon as they did arrive, both young men exhibited a knowledgeable, professional attitude as well as being respectful and kind. They worked well together or separately and never slowed down until they had the truck loaded . . . in one hour! They then asked for a short break, and we thought it was well deserved. Unloading took a little longer only because the dryer vent duct was in an odd place and Brian had to work around the builder’s boo-boo. We were only charged the two-hour minimum. We have moved several times during our marriage, but using Roadrunner Moving Company was by far the best! Hopefully, we will not have to move again anytime soon, but if we do we now know which company to call. They certainly live up to their name and reputation.

Reasonably priced. Professional. Responsive. Organized. Quick. Attentive. Courteous. I'd both recommend them to a friend and use them again.
Tips & Advices
Yes, it’s best to empty drawers, wardrobes and chests before a move. Items always get knocked around a bit, and doors can fly open even if they’ve been taped. In fact, more often than not, movers will want to remove the drawers from a dresser--or disassemble the wardrobe to be more space-efficient.
Yes, it is customary to tip movers, but the amount varies widely. For full-service moves, a 5 percent tip is suggested, although, for extra service, some people go up to 10 percent . For small local movers, you can give each mover $10 for a few-hour job, or $20-$40 for jobs that take longer.
A bill of lading is the legal contract for the move. It provides a detailed receipt, in addition to a contract between the client and the mover. It authorizes the mover to transport the goods from one specific point to another, and it outlines the exact scope of services, with cost breakdown for those services. It also provides an itemized list of the inventory, and carrier liability protection for each declared item. Finally, it specifies the payment arrangement. Make sure to go over your itemized list extremely carefully before finalizing the paperwork--and get a copy of the full document. A good mover will go over everything on the bill of lading with the customer.
There are several items that moving companies will not move – those items will be listed on a document as “non-allowables.” These items typically fall in three categories: perishables, sentimental/personal items, and hazardous material. Perishables are food and plants. Sentimental/personal value is up to the client to decide, but usually includes jewelry, medical and dental records, personal paperwork, valuables and collectibles. Hazardous material is the tricky category, since it includes a lot of everyday items found in the garage, garden or kitchen. For example, cleaning liquids and pesticides both are considered non-allowable by many companies. Some go so far as to disallow nail polish and batteries.
A binding estimate means that the moving company cannot charge more than the stated amount, though they can lower the final bill if the scope of the job was smaller than expected. A non-binding moving estimate is more likely to wind up costing more than expected, since the movers can increase their rates for unforeseen variables like stairs, “long carry” and materials.
