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.
