5 Mistakes to Avoid While Shifting Your Home in India

Home shifting requires a lot of planning and preparations, because there are many small tit bits involved in it. Right from searching and finding moving companies, to getting your goods packed, transported, unloaded, unpacked and re-arranged, it takes lots of attention and careful efforts to make it smooth.

As because there are several tasks that must be handled well, there is high chance of error and that’s the point of discussion today in my post. Here are the five ways to get your home shifting wrong.

Home-Shifting

No planning and preparations in advance

Needless to say that proper planning and preparation is the key to a smooth shifting and relocation of your household goods, car or anything else.

Planning helps you create a detailed plan for everything. Right from scheduling the date by which you should be finalizing a packers and movers to scheduling dates of packing, transporting, unloading etc.

When you have time, you can analyze and plan everything properly. But when you don’t have enough time in your hand and you are in hurry, you will feel stressed and even end-up paying more. No matter whether you are hiring a mover or packing it yourself, when you have time in your hand, you will be able to do it well. Rushing at the last moment could be terrible and so you should start planning early.

You need to take a call on whether you actually want to hire a packers and movers or not? If you are not planning to hire a packers and movers for your shifting, then are you really sure that you will be able to do it yourself? If so, from where are you going to find labor and packing materials?

Preparation is to prepare the list of goods that you want to pack and get transported (shifted). Unless you have a detailed list, you won’t be able to take a decision as whether to do it yourself or hire a shifting and relocation company. If you decide to hire a relocation company then you need to have a list of goods so that you can talk to the movers and packers and get estimates.

Underestimating he complexity and doing it yourself

As I said above, there are lots of small but important tasks involved in a shifting. You may be convinced that you will be able to get it packed and moved yourself, and it is not like denting the universe. Of course you can get your goods packed and moved yourself, but you should evaluate everything thrice and then take a call.

Packers and movers service provider companies handle shifting everyday and they have much more experience and expertise than you have. They can buy packing materials much cheaper than you because they buy in bulk. So are you really sure you want to do it yourself. If yes, then go ahead and get ready to handle the stress of buying packing materials and hiring trucks and labors.

Hiring packers and movers without comparing

When after analyzing every aspect of your home shifting when you have decided to hire a trustworthy and reliable packers and movers company, you should spend some time and compare a few movers and packers companies before finalizing one.

By comparing I am not saying compare only the price, rather you should be collecting all types of information about a few companies. Evaluate them all and then take a decision.

Hundreds of new packers and movers companies are mushrooming every year and of course you cannot trust them all. Starting a packers and movers business is not that difficult and thus its is important that you pay attention to every detail that you can gather and only when you are 100% satisfied with a company, you decide to hire them.

Shifting without buying insurance

No matter whether you have decided to do your shifting by yourself or you are planning to hire Packers and Movers or a Home Shifting Company, buying adequate insurance for your goods is very important and it must be in the top of your priorities.

No one can guarantee that a box will fall while your labors are loading or unloading it. An accident could take place anytime and no one can ensure that there won’t be any damage. So it’s better to pay a little and buy insurance policy. Your goods are important and it must reach safely, but in case of any mishappening, you should be able to claim your policy.

Finally, not hiring an specialist

Packers and Movers offer complete shifting and relocation services. By complete service, I mean to say any kind of shifting and relocation, be it a bike, car, household goods, home appliances, furniture, industrial goods, shop or an office.

Also there are different types of shifting, broadly speaking, it could be a local shifting, car relocation, domestic shifting or an international shifting.

So the point I am trying to make is, it is very important that you hire a specialist shifting company depending on your requirements. If you are planning for a local shifting, you should hire a specialist local packers and movers and similarly when you are planning to move a car, you should hire car carriers service provider.

To conclude, your goods and possessions are priceless. So you better spend some time and avoid these above mistakes and employ the best moving agency for your shifting to make it a joyful, safe and fun experience.

Do you think there is other major concern one should look at? Feel free to share your experience of home shifting with us.
