Packers and Movers in Ramamurthy Nagar Bangalore Charges Top 5 Best Movers

1. What does a full service Packers and Movers Ramamurthy Nagar Bangalore consist of?

Full service local moving is a great choice if you can afford it. This is when you hire a local mover in your area to not only do all the moving, but also to pack all of the boxes. For larger local moves, the moving company will often pack all of the boxes one day, then return and do the moving the next day.

2. When somebody is moving, how is the customer charged by the movers?

The number one consideration for any moving estimate is how much is going to be moved. For smaller moves this is usually conveyed over the phone or by email. For larger moves, a walk through estimate by a moving company representative is recommended. The next basis for moving charges is how far the move will be. When moving locally, within the same state and less than 100 miles, the charge is by the hour. Long distance moves, normally over 100 miles or from state to state are usually charged based upon the weight of the goods being moved. The moving company will drive their truck onto a certified scale before and after loading items to determine the weight of the goods. Other factors that can cost extra for long distance moves include difficult access (elevators, stairs, long carries, or the inability of the truck to get close to the residence or other furniture locations). In addition, if you have the movers pack the boxes for you, that will become an additional cost. Some movers will survey your goods and offer you a “binding” or “firm” price to do your move. Be certain that the contract clearly outlines what goods and services will be included with the price.

3. Does somebody have to physically be present for movers to move goods?

In most cases the shipper or representative of the shipper must be present at the beginning of services. This is so that someone can provide signatures authorizing the moving company to provide the services as outlined within their freight bill or other shipping documents. In addition, the moving company needs to get clear instructions with regard to what services are needed. In addition, normally someone needs to be present to receive the goods, and sign for a receipt of the goods.

4. Can someone have their belongings relocated to two different locations?

Yes, it is possible for a Packers and Movers Ramamurthy Nagar Bangalore moving company to relocate someone’s belongings to more than one location. Most local moving companies charge by the hour so it will be at the expense of the consumer if they need to have things relocated to multiple locations. However, usually long distance movers charge a set fee for additional delivery locations, in addition to the weight and distance charge for the actual move.

5. Is it possible for a moving company to move items or furniture into a storage unit?

Yes, most moving companies will move someone’s goods to a storage unit. Storage units are in fact physical locations. Some moving companies also provide their costumers with storage services. If the consumer is willing to pay extra for moving company storage, they will store the goods wrapped in pads and protected. If using a self service storage usually the consumer has to provide their own protection. Simply ask the moving company all your questions and they will surely be happy to provide information.

6. Do Packers and Movers Ramamurthy Nagar Bangalore moving companies offer insurance to their consumers?

Moving companies are not insurance companies, and there for do not actually sell or offer insurance directly to consumers. Instead, the moving company is the insured party, and tariff rules allow them to sell “valuation” to consumers. Valuation is a declaration on the shipping document by the consumer of the maximum value the moving company can be held liable for damage to the consumers goods, while in custody of the mover. Similar to insurance, there are varying levels of valuation coverage, with varying deductibles. The higher levels of valuation coverage cost more than lesser levels of valuation. Similarly, lower deductible coverages cost more than higher deductible coverages. Regardless of whatever level of valuation the consumer selects prior to services, there are many exclusions and limitations to moving company liability.

7. When does the moving company expect to be paid?

Most Packers and Movers Ramamurthy Nagar Bangalore moving company fees and charges are collected on delivery. That is, when the goods arrive for delivery, most moving company contracts state that the movers be paid before the release of the goods. There can be different payment requirements for moving locally and moving long distance. Surely, for long distance or out of state moving, the movers will want to secure payment prior to unloading. In some cases for local moving, which usually charges by the hour, some movers will not require payment until after unloading, but still many may want to be paid prior to unloading (unloading time will be estimated). In addition, sometimes for large office moves, which moving companies may require reservation of significant amounts of trucks and personnel, some movers may require a reservation deposit.
