      I hired Good Look Movers for local shifting within Anna Nagar. The packers were punctual and packed the furniture well and unpacked too at the new house They disassembled the bed and removed the geyser themselves. They even arranged to removed the AC unit. They use a decent size truck to move all the furniture in one go. I would certainly recommend Good Look Movers.

      Great service by them. We packed things like clothes, books and some utensils by ourself that made the shifting work easier. The flat we moved in was at 4th floor and did not have a service lift. Still they managed to carry it in passenger lift without any hesitation or complaint. Deducted 0.5 stars because of the size of the vehicle they brought, as we had to jam pack the things to accommodate inside the vehicle.

An Insight into Packers and Movers in Chennai

Chennai being one of the most renowned cities in the country, there is constant inflow and outflow when it comes to people. Chennai has almost always attracted people from different parts of the country and still continues to do so. With people moving in and out of Chennai, it provides a great platform of house shifting services in Chennai. The presence of a large number of packers and movers in Chennai ensures there is a constant strive for being the best movers and packers in Chennai. This has resulted in Chennai having access to some of the best movers and packers in India. Competition is always good news for the end users or in this case consumers like you. However, if you go to your locality and ask for quotations, you will get a wide range of Chennai movers and packers list. On the top of that, you might not get the peace of mind you are looking for when it comes to moving to far off places. People usually experience lack of communication, which can furthermore tense up the situation. At UrbanClap we ensure that you only have access to packers and movers in Chennai that have been thoroughly vetted and are reliable. Urban clap movers in Chennai also provide an insurance worth Rs.10000 to cover up for any losses during the shifting. Urban clap also provides car movers and bike packers and movers in Chennai to customers.

Planning your relocation

One cannot emphasize enough on the importance of planning for any task. Moving stands no different. Most of us usually have the habit of doing things at the last moment. But planning your move earlier makes things easier. Here is how you should go about it.

  • Finalizing house shifting services in Chennai: With so many house shifting services available, it is essential to select one post some scrutiny. It is a good practice to vet services against at least three pros.

    If you wish to do the moving all by yourself, here are something you out to keep in mind.

    a) Reach out to friends and family: If you feel you can alone handle all the packing, well that’s a bit of a stretch. An extra pair of hand or hands can help you pack much quicker and with added efficiency.
    b) Get packing supplies: For individuals who wish to pack their own stuff, here are some things you need to buy to complete the task at hands.
    • Tapes
    • Boxes
    • Stickers
    • Plastic bags
    • Ziploc Bags
    • Cardboard covers for large objects such as beds
    • Bubble wrap, thermocol for items that are fragile
    • Scissors
    • Markers
    • Post-its or Labels
    • Masking tape for items such as mirrors and frames made of glass
    • Ropes to tie boxes
    It is important that you buy these stuffs rather than crowdfunding them from nearby shops and friends.

    c) Earlier the better: Since you are aware of when to shift, you get enough time to do the packing. You can dedicate some time daily to pack in advance. It could be as little as an hour a day.

  • Get Rid of Unwanted Stuff: Sure enough, shifting brings in a lot of inconveniences, but also has one of the biggest advantages. It allows you to purge things in the house that are no longer needed. There would be a lot of stuff in the house that you feel are important but in reality, you have never used.
    a) Try to donate as many old clothes are possible
    b) If you have a lot of old books, games or even toys, hand it over to someone needy
    c) Shred all those unwanted papers
    d) You can donate some of those old utensils
    e) Any broken items or unwanted packages that have been lying around need to be dispatched
    f) Get rid of those old furniture if you can, even better if you can sell it off

  • Reach out to utility companies: There is a lot of stuff that needs to be done before shifting. Reach out to your broadband operator, your gas connection company or even phone company and inform them about the move.

Moving to a New State? Follow these

Moving to a different state in the country can be a bit intimidating. There are a lot of things that need to be addressed right from a new address to getting used to cuisines; it can be a bit tough. To add on the top of it all, you need to move your stuff from old address to the new address. Therefore, hiring packer and mover in Chennai services from UrbanClap simply adds more value. Home shifting services in Chennai ensure that you have to worry about one thing less. When you are shifting to a new state, here are the things that you need to take a closer look at.

  • Advance visit helps: Before you get all your home stuff moving, go ahead and visit the place yourself. This way, you know what you lie ahead of you. Individuals who have already finalized about moving to the new state, it makes even more sense to visit the place.

  • Schooling for kids: As a parent, you already know how difficult it is to get admission while a session is active. During your visit to the new place, you can jot down all the potential schools for your kid.

  • Inter-state home shifting services: Not all of the packers and movers provide you with inter-state services. This should be part of your initial screening process.

  • Finalize the items that need shifting: packers and movers Chennai cost varies as per the items that you want to move. It depends on the weight as well as the number of items you wish to transport. Thus, it is of utmost importance that you finalize which all items are essential. If there are items that you do not use frequently, it is better off to sell them. Once you have the list, reach out to household services in Chennai to understand the price of movers and packers in Chennai.

  • Include a plan for fragile or uncommon items: If you are someone who is a gaming enthusiast and has a foosball table or a pool table, speak with your packer and mover in Chennai. Even If you have some expensive paintings or even statues, make sure you clear it out with the household shifting services in Chennai.

  • Keep all documents together: One of the easiest things to lose during moving or shifting is documents. Make it a point to gather all important documents and keep them in a folder. It is better if your keep similar types of documents together such as rent receipts, agreements, etc.

  • Name the Boxes: Well, it’s not literally naming the boxes. It is time to make use of the markers and post-it that you bought as preparation materials. Labelling the boxes makes it easier for moving and even unboxing them later on.

  • Keep pictures of certain items: It is always a good idea to keep before and after pictures or even videos for that matter for certain valuable items. These evidence will come in handy should there be any damage and you need to claim for it.

  • Terminate services that you cannot transfer: If you are part of a club, library or gym that is exclusive to the locality or the city, make sure you unsubscribe or terminate your membership before leaving. Services such as newspapers, vehicle cleaning services etc. It is advisable to inform these services well in advance, about a week or fortnight before you plan to stop the services.

  • Insurance: Insurance and their premiums these days are partially dependent on your city of residence. Thus, changing of cities can be a bit tricky to handle. If you continue with a city of a similar tier, the premiums might not change.

How to keep your belongings safe when moving

House shifting can be tiring but waiting for your stuff to reach the new place can be even more stressful. It is only but humane to eagerly wait for all your valuables to be delivered safely. Taking help of luggage shifting services or the good packers and movers in Chennai makes life much easier. But even then, you can take additional precautions to keep your belongings safe.

  • Inventory List: All the items that you feel need to be handled with care, make a list of it. Along with the same, taking pictures or making videos will be helpful should anything go wrong. One must take utmost care in keeping all documents safe.

  • Carry smaller items by yourself Keeping certain valuables such as expensive electronics or jewellery with yourself and carrying the same simply reduces any risk of losing them.

  • Do the Dishes To keep your dishes safe during shifting, make sure you pack them sideways and use sufficient bubble wrap. The luggage shifting services in chennai and the cargo packers and movers will mostly help you with that, but precaution never hurt.

  • Use Painter’s Tape You should use painter’s tape for marking your boxes which have fragile items in them. Proper packing and marking of items makes shifting and later on unpacking things much easier.

Top 10 Moving Tips and Tricks

Packing for a small trip of a few days is challenging enough. Doing the same for all household items is definitely a lot more challenging and difficult. Moving between cities or states takes the difficulty level a few notches up. Packing your stuff on your own is good, there are no doubts about that. But we mostly underestimate the effort of work needed for packing and moving. Hiring packer and mover in Chennai ensures that one does not overspend time on things that packers and movers in Chennai are available for. The following is a list of tips and tricks that you can follow for an easier moving.

  • One Man Army: Most of us feel that we can pack all the items and move them as well. But lack of proper planning and execution can make this seemingly easy task, a lot difficult. If you are someone who shifts on a regular basis look out for local packers and movers in Chennai. Packers in Chennai ensure maximum safety of goods and giving professional packers the responsibility is always a great job.

  • Last Minute Hassles: Packing in any form at the last moment will make things confusing and difficult. If you know well in advance that you are to shift on a specific day, start packing. When you pack in advance, you organize things much better and chances of missing out stuff is low as well.

  • Bare Bones Comparison: While looking at rates of packers and movers in Chennai, we almost always tend to pick up the cheapest packers and movers in Chennai. Instead of doing that, one should take a look at the services provided and a brief background check of the packers and movers in Chennai. It is advisable to take extra precautions if its local packers and movers. After all, you wouldn’t want to damage your household items in return for saving some money. Look at the cost of cheap movers and packers in Chennai, the services movers in Chennai provide and response of people who have availed such services.

  • Customer Feedback is there for a reason: For house shifting, things get relatively simpler when you go online. There are a ton of packers and movers in Chennai available online. But being online gives you access to a lot of information before you finalize them. Spending some time on customer feedback or reviews will definitely give you better insight into the services provided by them. The following are some questions which make it easier to decide the services.

  • Use High Quality Materials for Packing: Not using high or good quality materials for packing is a common mistake. A normal cardboard box might be helpful for shifting stuff from your office to home or a friend’s house to yours. But when it comes to long distance moving, they just don’t provide enough support.

  • You Don’t Have To Pack Everything: We tend to pack anything and everything in the house. Whereas, in reality, a lot of that stuff is not even used on a regular basis. Make it a point to give away or drop out such items which you do not use on a regular basis. After all, when older stuff goes, it makes way for newer and better stuff.

  • Do not fill it to the Brim: One should not fill the boxes to the brim. If you see some breathing space in a box, let it be. If you force and put some additional items, it potentially can damage the additional item as well as the ones that were already there. For an instance, all the books should go into one or more boxes. Similarly, all the clothes or glass items should be packed separately. Or you can simply opt for the professional packers and movers in Chennai listed by UrbanClap and they will do it on your behalf.

  • Try not to involve too many people: When it comes to the packing of items, having too many hands does more damage than actual good. Instead of using too many hands, use one or two people whom you trust and know that the outcome will be positive.

  • Label boxes correctly: Labelling all boxes property has a lot of benefits. Firstly, all your items are more organized. Secondly, it becomes easier for the professional packers and movers services to load up boxes. You can also add notes for handling the boxes if you wish.

  • Proper Communication With Professional Services: After hiring packer mover in Chennai, do not forget to speak it out with them clearly. Be specific as to how you want your things to be handled. No doubts they are professional packer mover in Chennai and have a lot of experience under their belts, but communication would not hurt anyone.
