Shifting your house or office can actually seem like a Herculean task if the right kind of planning is not done. Without any doubt it is not easy, but careful planning and organization can makes things hassle free. But who to contact in case you plan to shift? There are several movers and packers which you can hire if you wish to shift. Alternatively, you can hire a truck service and get your stuff transported to the chosen location. Given below are some of the tips which will be helpful for you if you intend to shift:
1. Pack your belonging properly
When you think of shifting, do not carry the fluff. It is better to discard old and worn out stuff and only carry necessary items, as there is no need to add clutter to the new place. Even though nobody wants to shift, but you can keep on sticking to a place for long. Sooner or later you will be surrounded by cardboard boxes and brown tapes. Pack all your belongings in an organized way so that you do not have a problem when you reach the new place. If you pack haphazardly, you will end up in a mess later on.
2. Choosing the right mover and packer service
It all depends upon the size of the home, distance you wish to move, the budget at hand, and the time you can take out. If a place is very far, you will have to hire a truck service which will carry your load to the desired location. In case you do not want to spend too much money you can pack yourself and call people to carry the stuff. Always ask about the hidden costs such as insurance cost, Truck loading unloading charges etc. You must even enquire if any special equipment is needed to load items such as furniture, refrigerators etc.
3. Do comparative study of rates
Every moving and packing agency charges separately. Do a comparison of rates and what all services are included before you make a final decision regarding which one to choose. Some vendors charge less but their services are not up to the mark. Never act in haste. Read testimonials of satisfied clients. Only if a company is known for its superb services, then only hire it.
4. Hire a transport service in case you have to move over bigger distance
There are certain fixed charged regardless of what distance you have to move. So, only if you have to transport goods across bigger distances hire a reputed Transport service. Alternatively, you pack on your own and hire a trailer van or truck to carry the load to the place you want.
5. Hire full-service mover if time is a constraint
Only if you are extremely hard pressed for time, should you opt to hire a full service mover otherwise you will not be able to finish the packing on your own.
These are some of the tips which you need to consider if you plan about shifting
