Home Shifting Services in Bangalore, Karnataka

Packers and movers companies in Bangalore offers all types of home shifting services in Bangalore that is domestic house shifting services in Bangalore and local home shifting in Bangalore. When you want to pack and move all of your household goods from Bangalore to a distant city then they call it domestic household shifting service which is offered by specialist domestic shifting service providers. Similarly when you are shifting your home locally within Bangalore you have to hire a mover in Bangalore for local shifting. Movers and packers in Bangalore can help you with packing and shifting of all types of household goods and appliances e.g. Bed, Mattress, Wardrobe, Dining tables and Chairs, Sofa Sets, Kitchen Utensils and kitchen accessories, Fridge, Television and other miscellaneous goods and items.

Since we are discussing about local and domestic shifting services, let me tell you the basic difference between a domestic and a local home shifting service. The basic difference between local shifting and domestic shifting is with the distance between source and destination. Obviously when you are shifting your home locally within Bangalore then it's going to be way less complicated than a domestic shifting where distance between source and destination is more than 500 kms. Due to this distance factor, costs of shifting in case of local shifting will be much lower than a domestic home shifting from Bangalore. Third difference is in the process of shifting. Local home shifting usually can be performed in a single day but for domestic shifting a lot of planning has to be done.

Which shifting services in Bangalore do you need, local or domestic shifting?

This may sound like an easy questions, but trust me asking this questions is really important. Even before you start approaching home shifting service providers in Bangalore to help you relocate your house, you have to answer this question. Why you may ask? In general if you approach a shifting service provider in Bangalore, they will be happy to help you irrespective of whether you need a local home shifting service in Bangalore or whether you want to move domestically. After all it's about getting a business and no one would like to lose a client, right?

But that's not how you should hire a movers and packers company for shifting or relocating your household goods. If you are planning to move your house within the radius of 150 kilo meters to 200 Kilometers, then you should ideally hire a movers and packers company who specializes in offering local home shifting services in Bangalore. Just this decision will help you save money because local packers and movers companies (i.e. movers and packers companies in Bangalore who only offers local home shifting services) will cost you less. For same distance with same volume of goods, if you approach a movers and packers service provider who specializes in domestic home shifting service, he will charge you more. You may try comparing rates if you feel like.

So the simple answer is when you know that the distance is not above 200 kms, go and hire a mover who offers local house shifting service in Bangalore. If it's above 200 Kms, talk to a domestic shifting service provider in Bangalore.

In this post, I am keeping it limited to domestic home shifting and relocation services in Bangalore and will write another post dedicated to local home shifting process and best practices.

Here's how to hire movers and packers for domestic home shifting services in Bangalore

Once you have decided to avail home shifting services in Bangalore form a specialist movers and packers company then he next obvious questions is where do you find them? And once found how do you ensure that you are in talk with a truly reliable and trustworthy home shifting service provider in Bangalore and that they will be able to relocate your household goods in safe and sound condition?

When you want to hire a movers and packers service provider to shift a house from Bangalore, you may have couple of concerns like as under;

So trust, expertise and costs of packing and shifting are three of the most important concerns. Obviously, unless you find a trust worthy and expert service provider who is competent with rates and charges, you won't feel comfortable in dealing with such service providers.

Obviously you want to hire a mover that is reliable, have the expertise and who can offer safe and affordable home shifting services in Bangalore. Let's address each of the concern that you have.

Finding trustworthy movers and packers for home shifting from Bangalore

Finding movers and packers companies to do home shifting from Bangalore to anywhere else in India is not a big deal. But finding a mover that you can trust and rely up on is definitely a big deal. Why, you may ask? Because, Bangalore is the Silicon Valley of India. Right from startup to all types of multinational companies have their offices in and around Bangalore. Obviously thousands of people like you are coming to and moving out of Bangalore. All of them need home shifting and storage services in Bangalore. Naturally demand of movers packers companies is very high in Bangalore compared to other cities except Delhi NCR because NCR is comprised of multiple cities.

Due to this high demand for moving and storage services, every year hundreds of new packers and movers companies are opening their shops. Some of them succeed and others run out of business.

Do you want to end up with such shady and mediocre home shifting service provider? No I am sure. Then how do you differentiate between service providers?

It's pretty simple. Instead of making random calls ask for recommendations of best home shifting service providers in Bangalore. You can ask your friend, colleagues or HR managers. If nothing works, you my simply post your requirements by completing the quote request form to ask for recommendations of up to three packers and movers companies. Its fast and you can expect a reply in 15 minutes sharp.

Verify capability and expertise of handling home shifting assignments

No matter how impressive they sound, you should do a quick background check before finalizing a movers and packers company in Bangalore. Being an IT capital of India, anyone can put a nice a looking website. But looks of the website does not say much about the abilities and expertise of the service provider. So how do you know if you are hiring a really capable and well placed home shifting service provider company? Obviously you should meet them face to face, check their branch network, visit their office, and talk to their past customers, check for reviews on online websites and forums.

That's about background check, but there are a few other important things to remember when shifting a house using movers and packers services. In case of domestic shifting, since you are simply moving out of Bangalore, you should clearly check with the movers and packers company about whether they have a branch in the city where you are moving. They may not have a branch and in that case they usually have associates who will be unloading your goods. Get clear understanding about unloading and ask for contact number of their associates at the destination so that you can even do a cross checking.

The whole idea of engaging a relocation service provider is to ensure that your goods are getting packed and moved safely. If the movers and packers that you have decided to hire are not capable then there is no point of dealing with them.

How to keep costs of shifting a house as low as possible

Ideally you should evaluate and compare rates and charges from three different home shifting service providers. This way you can get better understanding of the process. Talking to multiple service providers will also give you a fair idea of the costs that each of them is quoting you. Naturally, all three of them will quote you different price. You should evaluate each of the offers carefully and if required, you can even negotiate with the service providers. There is always some scope for negotiation but remember to not over stretch it else the movers and packers may start compromising in the quality of packing materials and packing itself. So be practical and do negotiate accordingly.

If you are still not happy with the rates of packers and movers companies then you have to tweak the strategy of home shifting. What you may opt out for some of the add-on services like unpacking and re-arranging and if even that does not bring the costs down to your budget then simply take some of the responsibility and limit the scope of work.
