MY EXPERIENCE WAS NOT REALLY GOOD. THEY GAVE ME THE QUOTATION WHICH INCLUDED EVERYTHING BUT WHEN THEY DELIVERED THE THINGS, THEY CHARGED ME EXTRA FOR UNLOADING THE THINGS AS WELL. NOW, I DONT KNOW IF THE DRIVER RAN AWAY WITH MY MONEY OR THE OWNER ACTUALLY CHARGES EXTRA FOR UNLOADING BUT I DID COMMUNICATED THIS PROBLEM TO THE OWNER AND HE SAID HE WILL BE LOOKING INTO THIS MATTER. ALL I CAN SAY IS THEY ARE NOT PROFESSIONALS.THEY DO NOT WORK PROFESSIONALLY. NOT ACTUALLY SATISFIED WITH THE SERVICES PROVIDED TO ME.
Excellent service,,the service team always co-operate with me by phone & consignment delivered on time.so what can I except from the delivered team???
- Om Packers & MoversAdarsha Pally, Kolkata, West Bengal, India5.0(6 reviews)
I had to move to an out station location. The packaging was satisfactory however the un packing was not done properly by Brij Mohan. The delivery was done on time however, some of the items were damaged. There is no compensation what so ever from their side for the damage due to mishandling. They left immediately after the delivery and did not cross check with us about the status of the goods. They remained professional and were well behaved ,however the issue was the hurried un packing of the goods. The owner was in touch with me. The fragile items were not taken care of. The almirah had to dismantled and then loaded they ,loaded it without dismantling, the manpower was adequate at the time of packing ,however at the time of unpacking the manpower was in adequate.(Negative feedback).
Brij Mohan provided me the service of Packers and Movers as I moved from 1 city to another. It was a distance of around 500 kilometers. The entire shifting was managed by them and I simply watched them. They packed everything promptly and loaded the vehicle. The people who came in for this work were well trained and synchronized. They knew exactly what had to be done and the manner of doing it was also well planned. The packaging of items was done well and there was no scope of any damage what so ever. The delivery was also well in time. Over all I liked their service _ it was convenient and hassle free.

- Sharma Logistics Packers and MoversHowrah Stn, Newtown, Kolkata, West Bengal, India5.0(3 reviews)
Ajit Sharma had provided with the relocating services. He had given his services in the past. I was moving outside the city, from kashipur to Bangalore. He helped me move all my household items, and I got to know about him on the internet. He provided seven labours and delivered all my item in 10 days. Their behaviour was benign and gave all the items on time without any damage. Ajit stayed in touch with me all the time until I got the items delivered. Prices were fair as compared to the market price. I will surely recommend him to other people as well.
Ajit Sharma had provided me with the transportation services. I had taken his services in the last month. He had provided me with the container and shifted my car from Kolkata to Delhi. They contacted me after delivering my car to Delhi, and I was very satisfied with their service, delivered my car on time. I didn't found anything amiss and found my car as it is. Prices were fair, and I will surely recommend him to other people as well.

I had to move intercity and had hired them as my packers and movers. They shifted my house items. The packing was smooth, and we had a lot of fragile items with us. The work done was okay, and there was no damage as such. The delivery was on time and overall I am satisfied with their service. The staff was professional and well trained, and they behaved really well. The owner was in contact with us and sometimes I had to follow up with him. The price was a little high but their packing quality was worth the price
Excellent service and good quality job done.

Kuldeep Sharma was hired by me because I wanted to move within the city. Everything was done ok. The packaging, unpacking, loading and unloading everything was done properly. The delivery was done on time, and there was almost no damage to my items. There were just three people including the driver due to which even I had to the unloading. Their behaviour was okay and I would recommend their service to others
I was shifting my household stuff from Delhi to Baroda, and I hired him for the packers and movers services. My experience was good at the base level, but the delivery got late by five days. There was a communication gap also. Their pricing is good, but they need to improve a lot on their services. Their behaviour was good, and as such there was no problem except for the communication gap. My items didn't get damaged and he would give my one missing item in the next delivery.
- Vijay Packers and LogisticsBKC College Ground, Dunlop, Saket Nagar, Kolkata, West Bengal, India5.0(2 reviews)
I highly recommend Vijay Packers & Logistics! I moved Hadapsar, Pune with a truck full of bedroom goods and boxes at a very competitive price. They had everything shifted from an elevator building to a 6 floor in an 2 hour and a half! I had been dreading the moving process but using Vijay Packers & Logistics made it incredibly easy. Thank you!!”
I used Vijay Packers & Logistics today after the recommendation of 2 friends who also used them recently. After getting recommendation from friends I decided to hire them. Vijay Packers & Logistics team members and Mr. Jagram, they were a fantastic team and made the move look easy and go very smoothly. Over all I will give them 4 out of 5.

How To Ease The Packing Process & Keep Your Belonging Safe When Moving
While relocating, top Packers and Movers in Kolkata can be a big expense. Therefore, proper measures should be taken while selecting the top packers and movers. Sometimes. We even try to trim this expense. The major trim (cost cutting) being deciding to do the packing part ourselves. If you have decided to do the packing yourself, here are some moving tips and tricks that could prove significantly useful.
Things You Need To Do Your Own Packing – In order, to do your own packing, you will need the following:
• Sticking Tapes
• Permanent Markers
• Bubble Wraps, foam, and Newspaper
• Cardboard boxes
• Clear plastic bags, and/or Ziploc bags
Time Required To Do Your Own Packing - Since you may be having other work as well, consider starting your packing early. This will help avoid last-minute packing in a hurry, which is often improper. Starting a month in advance, create a packing calendar until your moving day, with specific tasks assigned to each day. Devote 1 to 2 hours towards packing per day can help finish relocation packing in time.
Cleaning up While Relocating - Relocation provides an opportunity to clean-up. So, start browsing through your closet and the rooms, and removing those things that you would like to dispose. These could be clothes that no longer fit you, or are worn out, furniture that has chipped off, and would get further damaged being transported from one location to another. Give away those unusable but in good condition clothes to charity. As for the furniture, you could try selling it off before throwing them away.
Ask for Assistance – Relocation packing can not only be exhausting but boring as well. Call up your friends and/or family over the weekend to assist you with the packing. This way you can carry on packing for long without feeling it as a task.
Top Packing Mistakes To Avoid While Relocating
Packing and moving is not an everyday activity for people other than for packers and movers. Usually, when we pack ourselves, we end up making mistakes, which cost us during the packing and moving process. Here are some common relocating packing mistakes to avoid:
Lacking a Packing Strategy – Like everything else in life, even relocation packing needs a strategy. A well-planned strategy includes the timeline for packing, what packing-related activity has been assigned for each day, the order of packing, which room first and which one would be last, and people included in this task. As a thumb rule, start from the rooms that you rarely use followed by the bedroom and finally the kitchen, since you will need to prepare your food until a day or two before the move. Empty one room completely and as you finish packing, move it to the empty room. This way you can see work happening and there is less litter to confuse you.
Less Packing Supplies – To cut down the expenses, we tend to buy minimal supplies of tapes, foam, and bubble-wrap. We use these supplies stingily resulting in lesser protection to the packed item. As mentioned earlier, once you have noted the stuff you will be moving, you will get a good idea of the quantity of tape and bubble-wrap you will need, buy more than estimated. Avoid being stingy in packing those items which you would like to see arrive in one piece at your new place.
Sort Out The Stuff – Remember that you are being charged for the packing and moving service. This charge is based not only on the distance but weight and number of items, so avoid taking unnecessary items. Sort out your stuff. For example, if you have a cupboard that you bought for Rs. 10,000 and it could sell off for Rs. 7,000. You check the price of the cupboard in the new place, and it is about same or lesser or is close to Rs 11,000 or 12,000. Consider selling off the cupboard, because you will save on the transport cost. Adding the resale amount to the saved transport expense, you could buy a new cupboard with no chipping or damages, that may happen during transport. It may also happen that the new house has built-in cupboards, in this case, you will not even need to buy a new cupboard, leaving you with money that you can redirect toward other expense.
Improper Packing - Packing furniture is a job best left to professional packers in Kolkata. These packers in Kolkata are trained and experienced at packing. They know the exact steps to take in ensuring safe and accurate packing of heavy household goods, like furniture. Also, stacking the items in boxes is an art as well, which cargo packers and movers in Kolkata are good at. cargo packers and movers in Kolkata can help you pack your items in a way that least to no damages occur.
Additionally, books should be packed in several small boxes, as putting them all in one big carton box, could make the carton extremely heavy resulting in extra charges, and problems in lifting while transporting. There are also car movers and bike packers and movers in kolkata to help the customers.
Likewise, some items are banned from being transported as they could be perishable, such as food, or hazardous and inflammable. It is best to confirm with the relocation services in kolkata about the items that can and cannot be shipped. This helps prevent them from reopening the packages if something forbidden is suspected in the boxes.
Taking Only Mental Notes – It is a good idea to note down the items, you are sending through relocation services in Kolkata. Not just mental note but actually noted down in a book. Some items are disassembled or disconnected, like the wiring of the speakers to the music system, or furniture parts. In this case, it is beneficial to take pictures before and making a video while disassembling. You may also mark the points as per your convenience to assemble them later on. For example, point A on the headrest of the bed and point A on the right side bed support, so that you know these two points are to be joined together.
An Essentials Box – Generally, an essential box should have medicines, non-perishable food items, toiletries, a torch, scissors, knife, and other items specific to your daily need. This essentials box will go with you and not the packers and movers, so keep it light unless you want to carry a bulky box or bag around with you. A essentials box proves useful in case you have to spend one more day in the old house or upon reaching the new house, you do not get time to settle.
Avoid Over-Stuffing Cartons – Fill the cartons enough that nothing moves, but avoid stuffing them to an extent that the carton box appears deformed from the sides or pressure needs to be applied to close it. Overstuffing could lead to the box tearing from sides, especially if there is another carton placed on top while transporting.
Packing Last-Minute – It is not for nothing that moving houses is considered one of the most stressful events in a person’s life. Efficient and proper packing is time-consuming, which should not be left for the last-minute. Start early, so that you have significant time to go through your belonging, labelling, and taking notes while packing.
Choosing relocation services in Kolkata Only Based On The Cost – When it comes to choosing relocation services, selecting cheap packers and movers in Kolkata,solely based on price can prove to be highly expensive. Since generally, the quality of packing and in some cases, the safety of the valuables during transit is compromised. It is best to inquire the local packers and movers service provider about the reason for the high rates. And if not satisfies you can hire cheap packers and movers in Kolkata Sometimes understanding the rates could help you mentally justify the costs to yourself.
Not Doing A Thorough Check of local Packers & Movers – The advantage on the digital world is that you can get a preview of the luggage shifting services in Kolkata simply by searching for them on Google. Every comment, feedback, complain, etc. will be available for you to go through. It is crucial to check the following details before finalizing upon a particular Packer & Mover Kolkata.
