"ALL CHARACTERS AND INCIDENTS IN THIS POST ARE REAL AND ALIVE".
As many millennials in India, I was a software engineer who shifted my base frequently to take up new jobs (from Hyderabad to Bangalore, Delhi to Bangalore). Like many others, I was excited about the new opportunity but finding a new house and shifting to it made me nervous. Even after doing research and finding one, I was a victim of packers and movers tactics - Reasons lack of knowledge, my research was limited to the google’s first page.
After hearing to the bunch of horrible stories regarding service standard provided by packers and movers, me and my co-founder decide to build the most trusted, highly transparent and standard marketplace for packers and movers services with technology as it core.

However, it is not always prudent to choose branded service providers. Sometimes it is too costly, sometimes one may not see professionalism in their working and sometimes same service is provided by professional packers and movers. But is not always easy to find the professional packers and movers, the customer has to put in a lot of efforts to make things happen.
Migrera is a data enabled platform which find outs the market trends and service standard of the packers and movers to the different cities( New Delhi, Chennai, Pune, Bangalore, Jaipur, Mumbai, Hyderabad….) and bring the trusted, service quality and hand picked vendors for the each customer making the house shifting process more reliable and hassle free than any other platform.
