During relocation, it is very necessary that you should follow a systematic approach. This is to ensure that the entire process of shifting gets completed without a hassle. There are various tasks you need to complete before the relocation. However, the best and most important part is hiring a relocation company. This blog informs on the best tips of how to find a reliable packers and movers company.
There will be many relocation service providers in your local area and some may quote even low prices. Please do not fall into the trap of these like-minded companies as they can just fleece you of your money and yet not give the best services. Before hiring a home shifting service company, you need to check several credentials and then hire them.
You need to conduct a sincere research to find information about the shifting service companies in your area. You can either depend on referrals, recommendations or check on yellow pages. The best however, is to rely on search engines and the customer reviews.
If you have selected five relocation companies, ensure to check if they have a website. If not, then there are umpteen chances that the company may be relying on other service providers for tasks such as packing, loading and transportation.
If you have conducted a wide research and then selected the five best shifting service companies, ensure to give their customer care service a call. Then discuss about the requirements. Get approximate quotes regarding the move. If the company sends a supervisor to your home to assess the quantity of items, allow for the on-site audit. When he comes, you will not only get a quotation regarding the breakdown of charges, but can also use the situation to clarify your doubts.
Please ask the questions about:
Moving date (the right time)
Your special requirements (pet relocation)
Do you also prefer to move your car or bike? Then ask for service charges.
Vehicle type used to move your home items
The answers by the supervisor to these questions can help you make a guess of opting for their relocation services. There are possibilities that out of the five selected companies, you may have to reject three because the relocation supervisor did not answer your questions properly. For the remaining two service providers, ask if you can pay a visit to their physical office. Many reliable companies’ supervisor will be happy to oblige the visit.
When you pay a visit, you can clarify if you have more doubts such as hidden costs, time of delivery and more. You can also ask for discounts if you are moving in a festival season.
How should you select a company?
Check if the company has at least more than three years of experience. Check their growth rate. If they have expanded their branches in other cities, then it is a sure sign of success.
Does the company have warehouses in prominent cities? Or do they have one warehouse along the route to your new destination? Then it will be easy to select a company on these grounds.
You can also ask if the company has a branch office in the new location you want to relocate. If they have one, then you are likely to get good service.
These are some of the very simple tips on how to find a reliable packers and movers company. Yes, there are other points also, but I have focused only on the important points.
