Household Moving Tips to Little Rock, AR
Currently home to a population of over 193,500 residents, Little Rock is the largest city in and the capital of the state of Arkansas, and also sits as the county seat of Pulaski County. Founded in 1821 and incorporated a decade later, its name derives from a small rock formation along the Arkansas River near where the city was first plotted. Today, Little Rock anchors the Little Rock Metropolitan Statistical Area, home to a population of over 724,300 residents and spans five counties. Little Rock is a major cultural, economic, government and transportation center in Arkansas and the surrounding region.
The first US Census to include Little Rock was done in 1850, when the city had a population of just over 2,000. By 1950 it had eclipsed 100,000 residents, and today is home to over 193,500; since 1850, the city has not stopped growing in terms of population. The city’s growth and development has led to it becoming a major economic center in the state of Arkansas, which is not often known for its wealth; that said, of all the cities in the state to attract new residents, Little Rock is the largest by far, and household moving companies are often helping families relocate to the area. This tends to bode well for new customers looking to move to or from Little Rock, as household moving companies have plenty of experience in getting into and out of the Little Rock metro area.
The main route through Little Rock is I-40, which helps household movers quickly get into and out of Little Rock. However, the city was founded well before the invention of the automobile and many sections of the city may be more difficult to access for a truck as large as a household moving one. This may require your shipping company to utilize storage-in-transit, which basically means they’ll drop your goods off in a secure warehouse and then find a local moving company with smaller trucks that will be able to deliver your goods to you. Storage-in-transit requires additional fees and takes longer, so you’ll want to discuss the particulars of your pickup and delivery location as well as its ease-of-access for a large household moving truck.
