1) Failing to identify genuine packers and movers

There are more than 400 packers and movers in Hyderabad, most of which are unregistered and do not even have a office. So, the foremost thing is to find reliable packers and movers. This can be done by looking for reviews, ratings and their online presence.

Take some time and do your reasearch.

2) Calling XY dial

Once you call dial search engines, You are flooded with phone calls rather than information. XY dial is now better called get dialed. You get calls the whole day(my personal experience).

Never make the same mistake twice.

3) Lowest price doesn't mean the best price

Most of the local packers and movers try to grab the deal by quoting very low prices. In many instances lowest price turns into extra charges or damages. Also there can be delays in shifting process as these people do not have their own vehicles and labour.

Dont be greedy for few bucks.

4) Incorrect listing of items to Packers and Movers

This can land you into trouble with the packers and movers on the day of move. List everything to the extent possible and discuss the unlisted items with the packers before making the move.

Take your time and list the correct items.

5) Not knowing the difference between unpacking and relocation

Unpacking includes only unwrapping the items inside the new residence where as relocation includes arranging the unwrapped items as requested by the customer. Some packers and movers provide relocation services as well.

 Be clear in what you request.

6) Assuming that packers and movers will dismantle AC or Geyser or others such electronic items

This is the most common assumption made by many customers. No packers and movers will provide this service. However you can request for a technician. 

Extra services require extra bucks.

7) Unwilling to purchase a moving insurance

With the kind of track record Our Country has got in number of road accidents, It makes sense to opt for a moving insurance as the premium is pretty small. 

Be on the safe side always.

8) Paying challan unnecessarily

Needlessly don't lose the money
