Packers and Movers

Have you found a new job in Bangalore and need to relocate from Hyderabad?

Congratulations!

But now comes the major hurdle - How to move from Hyderabad to Bangalore among other important things that you got to do before you leave Hyderabad? 

I can share my empathy with you as it is so difficult to find the reliable packers and movers at the best price at the right time. You would finally take some time out of your busy schedule and try to search in Google and make a few calls to different packers and movers to find the rates of movement. Generally, it becomes more complicated to arrive at a decision after the calls and ponder over with more questions than answers.

Are these people reliable?

Am I paying too much?

Is reliability, reputation etc. proportional to the cost of the move?

Then you make few more calls to a bunch of your friends, post a query in quora and maybe start a discussion thread in your company forum.

At Migrera, we have gathered innumerable experiences from our 12500+ house shiftings of history with both the packers and movers and the customers and identified pain points at both ends.

 

 

To ease your pain in estimating the cost of your move from Hyderabad to Bangalore, I am going to break down the costs to the basic math and help you make an informed decision.

Before I start explaining you the math behind the costs of your move, you need to understand why there is a huge variation in prices with different packers and movers and why negotiation still works in this industry. Here are a few factors:

  1. Variation in packing material
  2. Variation in the degree of service delivery
  3. In-house optimization capabilities
  4. Demand at the outward destination

Now, coming to the costs involved in making a move for the packers and movers, I will break the costs into four segments for better understanding. Also, I will explain each segment in three scenarios of the quantity of load to be shifted in a broad manner - 1 BHK, 2 BHK, 3 BHK

Segments involved in packing and moving:

  1. Transportation
  2. Loading
  3. Packing
  4. Unloading

TRANSPORTATION COSTS:

Factors involved in transportation: Distance, Vehicle type

  1. Distance:

    The distance from Hyderabad to Bangalore is roughly 570 km. On an average, transport costs per km is around  ₹ 22 per km

    Basic Math: 570 x 22 = ₹ 12540
  2. Vehicle Type:

    Do you want a shared or dedicated truck?

    A shared truck carries the load of 2 to 3 households and may take longer time for delivery. A dedicated truck obviously would make a faster delivery but involves a higher additional cost -around ₹ 5000-8000. Also, you have to opt for a dedicated truck if you have a bigger load (2 BHK, 3 BHK)

LOADING COSTS:

Loading is done by the professional staff of the packers and movers. These are the people whose faces will be seen at your house and who engage in loading, packing of all your household items. Each person generally charges around ₹ 400-500.

Basic Math for three scenarios:

House Type

Manpower needed

Cost

1 BHK

2

₹ 800 - 1000

2 BHK

4

₹ 1600 - 2000

3 BHK

5

₹2000 - 2500

 

PACKING COSTS:

Considering the quality of roads, mechanics of the transport vehicles and handling of your load (in your absence!), it is better to make a safe assumption about not to compromise on the quality of packing of your household items. Packing material generally includes fabric sheets, cellotape, corrugated sheets, thermocol, air bubble sheets, foam sheets, stretch wrap films, corner guards etc. As you are planning to shift your house from Hyderabad to Bangalore, safety and damage precautions are paramount and I will strongly recommend you to opt for quality packing.

Coming to the basic math of our problem, a decent quality packing can be roughly monetized as ₹ 6-8 per cft (cubic feet)

Basic Math for three scenarios:

House Type

Average cft

Cost

1 BHK

300

₹ 2000-2500

2 BHK

500

₹ 3000-4000

3 BHK

850

₹5000-6500

UNLOADING COSTS:

Unloading is again done by the professional staff of the packers and movers. It is important for you to know that not all packers and movers have unloading facility at the destination place. Always inquire about the unloading facility before hiring a mover.

The basic math for unloading is similar to the loading costs:

House Type

Manpower needed

Cost

1 BHK

2

₹ 800 - 1000

2 BHK

4

₹ 1600 - 2000

3 BHK

5

₹ 2000 - 2500

ADDITIONAL COSTS:

After knowing the basic tangible costs involved in your move, you should be aware of the extra costs that will/ may be levied on the final bill of your move:

  1. Profit margin:

    This changes with the brand value of the packer and mover that ranges from 10-40% of their costs.
  2. Insurance:

    It is advisable for you to consider this option to avoid losses due to road accidents, damage to goods during transit. If not insuring whole household stuff, I recommend you to at least insure valuable goods. Generally, it will cost you 3% of the declared goods value. Most packers and movers make insurance as mandatory.

  3. Other taxes:

    The standard toll charges and other octroi charges might impact your transportation cost

TOTAL COST - The sum of all segments:

You are now just one step away from the estimation of the cost of your move!

Another basic math of addition of all the costs will give us a fair estimation of your move from Hyderabad to Bangalore.

Total cost  = transport cost + packing cost + loading cost + unloading cost + additional cost

Additional Services:

Storage: Optional

If you still haven’t found your new home in Bengaluru, don’t worry! You can still make the move as many professional packers and movers avail storage facility. Most of them provide free storage for 15 days and charge a nominal price of 100-250/day thereafter.

Now, since you have understood the underlying math of packers and movers, you are ready to make the move from Hyderabad to Bangalore with the right information. As I am saying ‘right information’, you should also know that if some packers and movers are offering you a lesser price than the above-discussed possibilities and you find it very lucrative to go forward, you may get into trouble. One of the few reasons why they might offer you a cheaper price is - The packers and movers must be transporting your household goods along with other industrial goods. In such a case, don’t expect a safe journey and timely delivery of your goods. After knowing this, you took the risk and gave a try and it worked fine for you, I have to congratulate you that you have beaten one of the few odds of packers and movers industry.
