A mushroom growth of Packers and Movers in Hyderabad is witnessed on cyclical time each year as most nuclear families tend to move locally or to different cities these days and require an extra set of hands while shifting to a new home. While we are certainly not pointing out that hiring a mover is an offense, but you should at least do your homework before choosing the right mover who will transfer your personal belongings. A thorough research and comprehensive knowledge about Packers and Movers is necessary to choose a professional company that is reputed and can shift your household goods without causing damage.

Reliability Check

People generally hire a packer and mover to shift their valuables such as Sofa, dining set, TV, bed set and other items. But, prior to hiring a moving company, try finding its reputation in the market. Start off by consulting your neighbors or friends about the packers and movers they have hired in the past. This process will help you from staying aloof of a fraudulent company and hiring the right one that is bound to give the peace of mind. In case you fail to find any referrals, check about the company’s ownership document, previous track record, certification, PAN card, valid office address, email address and phone numbers among them. You can also talk to previous customers of the company to make sure you are not hiring a fraud moving company.

Quotation Comparison

While the survey is done online on MovingNow.in with 98% accuracy, other companies that you may approach will give you a quote after physically seeing the belongings you want to move. A company that is offering a very low price must not be trusted as quality is definitely compromised. It is advisable to ask for quotations from a few companies and compare them side by side to know that best offer which you can get for the quality you desire. A packer and mover with proven track record and asking moderate price should be selected. Moreover it should assure trouble free and damage free shifting of goods. One more thing to consider is calculating the cost of relocation as per the hours taken by the company to move your belongings. Some companies ask full day’s charge while the movement only takes 4 or 5 hours.

Fake Company Identification

While contacting a moving company over the phone, if you get response like “Hello” or “hello packers and movers”, then be sure that that company might not be genuine. Most often such companies are beginners or fly-by-night carriers with no experience whatsoever. The companies that respond to the call with their own name are possibly genuine companies and can offer you better service than those locally nurtured neighborhood cheap companies that not only operate out of shabby places, you may also encounter 4 to 5 different companies operating out of a single shop.

However upon unforeseen circumstances, after hiring a company that is unknown to you, you must stay aware of it in all aspects. Don’t forget to take pictures of the license plate of the truck that is carrying your valuable belongings. If at all possible and be doubly sure, you should escort the moving vehicle to the destination and be present while the movers unload the goods at your new home. Count the number items that were loaded and are being unloaded which is clearly prescribed in the document handed over to you at the time of loading the truck.
