Evaluation of Packers and Movers CompanyWhile evaluating the Packers and Movers, ensure they see all articles to be moved, which helps them guess the height of the Truck / Vehicle / Container required.
If possible insist on a separate truck for your items, so each and every item delivery can happen. This reduces delays as well as mix-up of your items with other consignments.
Typical Components of the Cost Sheet
- Service Tax
Insurance claims are entertained only in case of extreme unforeseen damages, e.g., the truck getting into an accident. Insurance claims are not accepted in case damage happens during regular shifting like loading/unloading. So don't compromise on the quality of the packer and mover, by buying insurance for the goods. Discuss about how much advance to be paid before delivery. The arrange split needs to be written down on the Estimate quotation sheet which is the only Document until loading of your items.
Before the Day of PackingPack personal items like Clothes, cosmetics, and other delicate items by yourself.
Pack the one or two bags that you would carry with yourself. Consider placing below most valuables in the bag that must travel with you:
- Certificates, Passports, Keys, Licenses and Sentimental item etc.
- Any other lighweight material of high value or high cost of replacing.
Dispose all items that you wish to discard. Otherwise on the day of frantic packing, they will get packed.
On the Day of PackingConsider 5-6 hours of total packing and loading time for a typical 2 BHK, using 3-4 personnel.
The Packers will bring along with them: Boxes, Brown paper rolls, Sticky Tapes, Bubble wrap rolls, screwdrivers etc.
If you have the original box for the TV or the Fridge, they may not be of much use. But if you have the original thermacol packing of these items, they are useful otherwise Professional Packers like Agarwal Packers and Movers DRS Group is have separate packing boxes for TV Or Fridge ,AC etc.
Appoint an area in your house for junk that you want to dispose Instruct the Packers and movers clearly not to pack articles kept in that area.
Appoint a separate area for articles that you want to carry along with yourself. Instruct the Packers and movers clearly not to pack articles kept in that area.
Keep colored stickers or numbers and write a sketch with names to be pasted on the boxes. Color codes each room in the new place. If color code E.g., all boxes to go into kitchen, to have green sticker.
For furniture that is being dissembled, create a single small box to hold all the nuts and bolts. If the packer has a method of storing it (e.g., in the last box that is packed), make note of it.
The packers will be very energetic with the first hour of packing, their stamina going down gradually. Plan for some Chai or snacks Cool drink for them.
Towards the end, they may try to load some articles without packing or wrapping them up (e.g., a coffee table). Do not allow this, insist on wrapping or packing everything.
In TransitTake the phone number of the vehicle. The vehicle Driver may not be an employee of the Packers and Movers Company and may contact you directly for any queries in transit.
In case they threaten delaying of delivery, do not succumb. The Mover loses Thousands of rupees each day that he holds a delivery since the truck goes unused or godown space is taken up. they would like to drop the goods at the destination as quickly as possible.
On DeliveryIf the unpacking or unloading of goods, assembling of furniture was included in the Estimate, do not leave the Movers go until they do it. We will come tomorrow and do it. Give them an espresso shot and get the job done, with Movers, tomorrow never comes.
It is possible that the vehicle Driver may collect the entire remaining amount. Try to hold some payment until all the unpacking and assembling of furniture is done.
