Finding the right packers and movers can mean the difference between a stress-free moving day and having your valuables broken or lost, being overcharged for unworked man hours, or your packers and movers not showing up at all. If you live in Hyderabad, you’re in luck because you’ve already found the best packers and movers in the area. For those of you who aren’t so fortunate, here are our top five tips for finding the best packers and movers in Hyderabad.
1. Licensed and insured
The first item on your checklist should be to ensure that the packers and movers company you hire is licensed and insured. To be licensed in their state, a packers and movers company must meet certain requirements such as having insurance, following safety guidelines, having an online presence, and being financially responsible. They must also have two types of insurance, one for their fleet vehicles and one for your belongings during the move. If you intend to relocate to another state, it is legally required that your packers and movers be licensed. As a result, it only makes sense to hire Licensed and Insured packers and movers.
2. Reviews on Google and Other review websites
This may seem obvious, but always check Google reviews for not only a good rating, but also a large number of reviews. It’s very easy for a new company to have a 5-star review with only a few total reviews, so it’s critical to look at both quality and quantity. Most people only leave reviews if they have a negative experience, so if you come across a packers and movers company with hundreds of 5-star reviews, you know they are doing something right!
3. Walkthroughs in Person
If a company is willing to provide you with a quote over the phone without seeing your items in person or via a virtual consultation… Please disconnect! To provide you with an accurate and fair quote, experienced packers and movers will want to know exactly what you’ll be moving. Some items, such as pianos, safes, pool tables, and gym equipment, necessitate the use of specialized moving equipment and must be factored into the quote.
Some companies will also charge extra for stairs, packing supplies, insurance, assembly and disassembly fees, elevator fees, long distance carrying fees, hoisting fees, fuel charges, parking fees, and so on. Make sure you get a flat rate quote that includes all extra fees you’ll be expected to pay after the move, and that this is done via a free in-person or virtual walkthrough.
4. Address of a Local Business
Scammers are everywhere these days, including the moving industry. Make certain that the company you hire has a physical address in your area. This prevents them from vanishing after taking your deposit. Having a local address also ensures that your move will not be outsourced to a third party in another state.
5. Examine the Particulars
I’m sure we’ve all seen a small pickup truck with a truck bed full of boxes and furniture that’s one speed bump away from flipping over. While there are several ways to move furniture, only one is correct. A good packers and movers company will carefully wrap your furniture with moving blankets and shrink wrap it together to protect it during the move. While this method of moving takes slightly longer, it almost guarantees that your items will be in the same condition as before the move.
Check your packers and movers company’s website and social media for behind-the-scenes photos of previous moves to see how they handle people’s belongings and furniture. For the best protection, everything should be wrapped and secured tightly in an enclosed moving truck.
