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.
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.
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.
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.
Be clear in what you request.
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.
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.
Plan your move according to the timings prescribed for such purpose. For example in Hyderabad it is before or between or after . You can get this information from traffic police websites in respective cities.
Needlessly don't lose the money
Make a list of all the items you are moving
