Common Mistake When you choose the Packers and Movers Company in Pakistan

Whenever, we are choosing the packers and movers company and it’s our first time experience, There are some common mistakes that we all make some times.

1. Not Getting Multiple Estimates

When we are hiring a home relocation company and getting estimates from a single movers company, you should make sure that you are getting a fair deal from the reputable company. If you go with more than one estimate, it will give you a surety about the fair price and you have a choice to choose the best one according to service and rates.

2. Should get Estimate on the Website

There are many tools available to take an estimate on a mail and over the phone like Marshall Packers & Movers .  While getting an estimate over the phone and mail, it’s better to perform a research about the price and service and you can compare between different service providers available. But you should call a movers and packers company at home in order to get a better quote and price about household moving. The packers and movers provide the quote after checking the size and weight of your household items and it’s a more accurate one.

3. Hire an Automatically Cheap Estimate Provided Company

Don’t believe that the company which provides cheap estimates is a better choice. There are many reasons that state if any company providing the cheap rates would not provide the best services or it can be a fake one. If you find the big difference of quotes between the competitors then it surely would be red flag. You must do more research in detail before hiring a moving company.

4. Make sure the Movers and Packers Company is Registered

Prior to hiring a home movers company, you should check that it is a registered one according to the Pakistan Registration with FBR. You should ask for the service tax registration and in a particular city, the office registration document.

5. Not Reading Reviews and Reference Check

Before you hire any packers and movers company, you should check all the reviews and ratings of each and every company. To check the reviews and ratings, there are a lot of online portals where you can check various company reviews like  Yellowpages in Pakistan . When you are checking reviews, you should confirm that posted reviews are fake or real. You can get more information about this from our moving guide topic that indicates whether the posted reviews are real or fake ones. You should take a reference of 2 or 3 clients served in the past. By doing this, you would get more assurance about the company.

6. Not Asking about the Extra Cost

You should ask more questions to the movers before hiring anyone of them because some will charge you with extra cost. You should take an assurance that there should not be any hidden cost involved in quote.

7. Read the Contract Carefully before signing it

Before signing the contract, you should go through the same to make sure that no hidden cost is involved. If you do not understand anything in the contract, you should ask the movers and packers company. Prior to signing the contract, you should check at the time of handover that all your household items are safe and sound.

Packing Moving Shipping Guide tips
objects they are removed from.

• Avoid loading more than 50 pounds into one box.
• Label each box and indicate the following:
o (a) Which room it should go in
o (b) Whether it is fragile
o (c) If it should be loaded last so it will be unloaded first.
• Cushion contents with packing material such as bubble wrap, newspaper or tissue. Save room by using towels and blankets to wrap fragile items.
• Pack books tightly on end in small boxes. If musty smelling, sprinkle talcum powder between the pages and wrap the book before packing. Leave stored for a couple of months to eliminate the smell.
• Have rugs and draperies cleaned before moving and leave them in wrappings for the move.
• Pack medicines in a leak proof container.
• Carry all valuables with you.
• Check with your local U.S. Department of Agriculture for regulations regarding moving plants from one state to another. Many states have restrictions on certain plants to prevent importing bugs or pests that can destroy valuable cash crops.
How to Pack Boxes PLAN AHEAD TO OBTAIN NECESSARY CARTONS:
We can sell you any cartons you might need in addition to other packing material such as paper and tape. You might save a substantial amount of money, however, by obtaining cartons from other sources such as friends who have recently moved and/or stores. Starting to collect cartons a month or two prior to your move will probably make it possible to obtain enough cartons.

SELECT THE PROPER SIZE AND TYPE OF CARTON:

Heavy items such as books, record albums, canned food, etc. should be put in smaller cartons. Some items such as large pictures, mirrors, glass tops and shelves, clocks and mattresses may require special cartons which we can provide.

PACKING OF SOME ITEMS IS OPTIONAL ON LOCAL MOVES:

When you are moving locally some items do not necessarily need to be packed. Items such as mirrors, large pictures and mattresses can usually be transported safely for short distances without packing. Generally, these items should be packed for long distance move and for shipments moving into storage. Lamps and lampshades should always be packed.

PACK ONE ROOM AT A TIME:

Packing can appear to be an insurmountable task when viewed from the perspective of the entire house. Packing one room at a time (and staying with that room until it is fully packed) has the effect of dividing the overall task into several smaller and more manageable tasks. This approach also makes it possible to set realistic goals, i.e. pack the dining room today, the kitchen tomorrow, etc.

TAPE THE BOTTOM OF CARTONS:

Taping the bottom of cartons before filling them prevents the contents from spilling out the bottom during the move.
HEAVY ITEMS ON THE BOTTOM/LIGHT ITEMS ON TOP:
In each carton the heavier items should be placed at the bottom and the lighter items on top to prevent damage.

USE A LOT OF PAPER:

All breakable items should be wrapped individually in paper. Paper should be used to cushion the bottom, sides and top of cartons.
PLACE BREAKABLES CORRECTLY IN CARTON:
Plates should be stacked vertically as if in a dish drain; glasses and stemware should be placed in an upright position; again, use plenty of paper on all fragile and breakable items.

CORRECTLY FILL CARTONS:

Fill all cartons to the top without overfilling. Cartons with items sticking over the top cannot be properly closed or stacked; cartons that are under filled tend to crush when stacked. Always make sure each carton is filled totally to the top before closing. A small space at the top can be filled with paper, a towel, a blanket or other similar items.

CLOSE CARTON AND SEAL SHUT WITH TAPE:

Cartons should be closed-top and sealed with tape to prevent damage and make stacking easier.

LABEL EACH CARTON:

Use a felt pen to clearly label each carton as to its general contents and the room it is to be placed in at destination. Label on the side of each carton rather than on the top so that cartons in stacks can be identified. If a carton is packed in a manner that requires it to be always kept in an upright position, draw arrows on each side indicating which end must always be kept up. Any cartons containing particularly fragile items should be labeled as such.

STACK CARTONS:

Time will be saved on your move if you arrange cartons in stacks of similar sized cartons four to five feet high. This enables the cartons to be easily dollied from the house to the truck.
