Things to consider when choosing movers and packers


With globalization becoming the norm, it has become pretty common for people to move to a new place or city. The most common reason for people to move to a new place is that they live in a rented place, career and study advancement being the second common reason.

Thus it’s not surprising that movers and packers are in high demand. Not just for relocation of homes but also offices or commercial establishments.

There are several factors to consider when choosing movers & packers to help you out. Let’s take a look at them so you can make the best decision for your move.

Below are some points you must consider before you select your movers and packers:


The easiest way to trust a company is to check how genuine they are. And costly does not always mean genuine. Before choosing a packing company, you should check if the company has all the necessary licenses and documents in place. The bills generated need to have registration numbers and you must also check their trade licenses and service tax details.

Background check

Just like how you do a little background check of the company you’re going to work for, it’s imperative that you do the same for your moving company. You need to ask them for details of their past customers. Do not just believe the testimonials on their website, if you can, speak to the actual customers and take their feedback.


Just like in any profession, experience matters. Before choosing a packing company, you should find out how long they’ve done this service, are they new to the market or are they, well-established players! Also, if the movers and packers are new but have a good list of satisfied customers, competitive rates and all documentation in place, it is worth the try. Often, experienced and big brands take small shifting projects for granted and do not provide quality service.  

Team of workers

If you’re going to put your trust in a company, it’s crucial that you also know the people behind the company. More specifically, the people that are going to manage your move and handle your belongings. You need to make sure if the company has subcontractors or if they outsource some of the tasks. The process of packing requires special skills, you need to ensure that the team that’s going to handle your move are well-trained.

The Cost

If everything seems right about a company, the next obvious point to consider is the cost. Don’t simply go for a company that offers the lowest price. Consider the above points first and if all boxes are ticked then consider a vendor with the most reasonable cost. Even if the cost is slightly higher than your moving budget, it’ll be worth it in hindsight.

These are the most crucial points to consider when choosing movers & packers. Moving to a new place is daunting enough. Don’t let ‘moving’ be an unnecessary hurdle.

The biggest mistakes to avoid while moving


They say mistakes are the best teacher. They act as a bridge between inexperience and experience.

But when you’re moving out of your home to a new place, it’s not the best time to take a trial and error approach. Some of the mistakes you might make while moving will not only cost you money but also your time, nerves and energy.

That is absolutely necessary to avoid mistakes while moving at all costs. Or you can try your best to reduce the number of errors and have a successful move.

If you’d like to be aware of all the potential issues that might come your way during your move, then read on.

Here are the most common mistakes you need to avoid:

Not researching your mover

If you want your things to safely move from point A to point B, it’s crucial to do your homework and a thorough background check of your mover before your moving day. Not doing so might create potential problems that will lead to stress and uncertainty. If you’re unsure about a company then look for a different one, compare prices, check reviews and the number of employees a company has. These factors can help you make the right decision.

Too much time for packing

Although packing is a very important part of the moving process, it’s not a smart move to dedicate all your time to packing. The most effective way to do the packing and not waste time is to do it systematically. Start from a single space, then a room and then move on to the next place. This way, you won’t lose or misplace any item as your attention will be focused. If you want to avoid mistakes while moving, do your packing the smart way.

Using the wrong moving boxes

While it is important to be efficient, you must not overdo a step - overpacking, overstuffing or worse, using the wrong sized box. While packing, you need to be mindful of the weight and size of the items you want to pack. According to experts, packing heavy items into small boxes and light items into large boxes will make them easy to move and handle. Whatever you do, never pack your precious items into questionable boxes and carefully choose the right box.

Forgetting to label your box

In the hustle and bustle of moving and packing, it’s inevitable that you’ll miss out on few things. But that does not mean it’s ok to misplace a precious item or improperly handle delicate stuff just because you forgot to label it. Labelling your boxes will make a huge difference and help you immensely. Labelling your boxes will help ease the unpacking process. With descriptive labels, you’ll know exactly where each box is supposed to go and which items inside. The time spent unpacking will be cut down and you won’t have to guess or be surprised at what each box contains.

Disrespecting your movers

Just because you are paying them, it’s not ideal or morally right to treat your movers ill or give them a hard time. They’re people too. The better you treat them, the better they will handle your belongings and help you out with your move. You should go the extra mile and help them with beverages and snacks whenever possible.

There you have it. These are the things you need to keep in mind to avoid mistakes while moving. Happy moving!
