Moving to another place is quite exciting, but the task of packing household items to the new location and unloading there is tedious and cumbersome. So call in the professional packers and stop worrying, says Rashi Tiwary

Got a transfer to other city or have to shift to new premises within the city?

Relocation is not an easy task given all the related issues that crop up in the process, from finding schools for the children to identifying medicare facilities to checking for shopping facilities that can be accessed easily.

And one big task is that of having to pack all the paraphernalia of living from sofas, cots, television and refrigerator to kitchen utensils, shifting the same to the new location and unloading there.

Not an easy task given the fact that there are so many to be shifted and some are fragile that demand extra care.

More popular

That’s where the professional packers offering their expertise in the task and promising to relieve you of the major headache of shifting step in. Their services are turning more and more popular these days with most preferring to move into a new address while not having to worry about towing along the paraphernalia.

Serving under the umbrella of Movers and Packers, these establishments take care of packing your goods, loading, unloading and unpacking them. Not only intra-city and inter-city, their services can be availed even if you are moving abroad!

First step

Before availing the services of Movers and Packers, it is always advisable to check the valuable items and have them insured as a first step. Nothing wrong in being a tad overcautious since the insurance cover for the most valuable ones come handy in case of unexpected contingencies.

The charges for packing and moving are determined by a variety of factors such as the weight of the goods, the area they occupy and what floor you stay on and to which floor you will be shifting.

Arvind Chaudhary, Marketing Executive of Network Cargo Movers and Packers in Vanasthalipuram says that services are further stratified on the basis of the quality of service demanded by the consumer.

If, for instance, a consumer wants to opt for immediate shifting, then the costs are higher.

Similarly, if consumers are not in a rush and can afford to wait, the services are relatively less.

Some might opt to shift their belongings along with those of other families who are also moving, so that their costs get drastically reduced.

Storage of goods

During this time, the company takes care of storing the goods.

Another factor in determining the cost is the size of the truck allotted for shifting, says Mr.Chaudhary. These transport vehicles come in different sizes such as 14 feet, 17 feet, 19 feet, 24 feet and 32 feet and allotted to a consumer based on the goods that are to be shifted.

Similarly, the place that it needs to be transported is also a factor in determining the cost. For instance, shifting the same number of items to a city like Kolkata generally works out more expensive as compared to say, Delhi because the service there is more expensive.

There is no restriction on the kind of goods that a person may want to move. However, all items must be insured especially fragile ones such as crockery, mirrors or other glass utilities.

Moreover, before shifting, the owner should declare the value of the goods. The company that moves the goods does not take responsibilities for any damage in the transit.
