Helped a friend with his moving and packing inside Bombay itself. He contact the 2 Agarwals. One of them said that they don't do a survey for moving inside the same city itself. He said if you give a list of the big stuff, then he will give you quote for the big stuff plus 40 other boxes. However, on the actual move day, if the number of boxes go more than 40, you will have to pay extra accordingly. The other Agarwal did a survey and gave a quote, but it was rather expensive. Leo Packers (http://www.leopackersandmovers.com/ - there are several Leos just like there are several Agarwals) gave a better quote and my friend chose them. The move was very professional (it's one of the best moves I have seen), very quick, they were very adjusting and accommodating and the whole move was problem free.

Just in the process of shifting houses and I used Buhariwalas. Very professional and they delivered as pomised. quote was accurate and they completed packing and loading way quicker than the time in which they said they would. I also needed some things to be stored in their warehouse which they promptly agreed to even though it was a last minute decision at a very reasonable rate.

Though this was my first move i was impressed.

I used the buhariwalas too for my international move. Excellent experience overall and very flexible. I've used writer and they were good, but buhariwalas are better.

I have used Aggrawal Movers and Packers. The ones with the yellow trucks only. Others are fake.
I had sent my Civic from Pune to Dehradun. Reached perfectly safe.

I recently moved my car Hyundai Verna from Ghaziabad to Bangalore through Agarwal Packers & Movers ( www.agarwalpackers.com ) and received my car in exact condition as given to them. Car was transported by car carrier truck. What amazed me was their online tracking of truck through GPS device on its route to Bangalore from Ghaziabad. They are expensive as compared with others but worth the money. I forgot expensive sunglasses in the sunglass holder and almost lost hope of getting same, but was extremely happy to see it as it is when car was delivered to my home. Delivery duration was around 12 days.

I have shifted umpteen number of times my residence and moved my santro across locations. I compared lots of packers and movers.

Agarwal was very costly. I went around transport nagar in Ghaziabad and shopped around and thus got a good deal. Have shifted my car twice via same people, even got my luggage shifted via them and got a very good deal.

Sharing number for reference. South Packers & Movers - 9311 753253.

Even though you may not use them, check pricing from them and then it will be a good benchmark for you to shop around for the transport services.

I need to relocated withing Bangalore next month. I need to following the following heavy items:
  • Queen size bed
  • Mattress
  • Dining table: 6 seater
  • 2 door refrigerator
  • Washing machine
  • 40 inch LED TV
  • Some other smaller items

I would move the smaller items myself in the car. But would require a truck for transporting the larger items mentioned above.

I tried getting the quotation from Pikkol, their quote is 9300 bucks plus taxes. Is this overpriced? Could you guys please recommend any other packers and movers who are better and more reasonable price-wise than Pikkol?

My neighbor has truck, but works independently. Feedback & experience with friends has been good. Pls PM if you are interested. Location - JP Nagar 4th Phase.
His prices would depend on distance & number of floors. They bring the packing material with them.

Pikkol's price of 9300 + tax is kind of par for the organized / registered companies.

I paid 10500 + tip a week back for pretty much the same list. Moved from a second floor apartment to Villa.
Used Lead packers this time. They are not so professional, but not that bad either. They at least had the courtesy to call back and check the next day if everything went well. Lead had a 17ft long truck. It was smaller than I expected. So I negotiated for a second trip for Rs3000. I did not have to use it though. The group leader knew how to stack items well after I offered him some tip.
I had quotation from Agrawal and Leo as well. Agrawal was 18k + tax and Leo was 22k + tax. Both are good, but they over do the process for local shifting. They came home and assessed before sending the quotation.

If you have the original packing box for your TV and other fragile items, you don't need these expensive packers. Only other benefit is, those guys may be more professional in behavior. Packing is done by same set of freelancers except the lead or supervisor. All these packers call them on daily basis and give their brand T-shirt. One of the guy from Lead packers told me this and even shown the T-shirt of other packers in his bag.

Since I have moved 4 times in past, I knew the entire process well.
My packer came home at 2PM (I asked him to come late as I needed more time for my own packing), loaded everything by 5PM and I was at my new residence at 6PM. By 7:30PM everything was unloaded and kept in designated rooms on three different floors of my house. I asked them to unpack only kitchen items, TV, fridge, washing machine and re-assemble beds, sofas and dining table. All the carton boxes were unpacked by me over a period of 1 week. Since I had packed my stuff (even though packer dumped most of them in larger boxes and allowed me to retain the boxes till I need), I knew what is where. I unpacked them bit by bit every day as needed.

My suggestion based on experience is, arrange carton boxes and pack your personal stuff yourself. Do this well in advance. If you think it is the packing guys job, you are wasting your time during unpacking. And it causes a lot of frustration when you can't find a small stuff later. I would rather take the pain at packing time.

Allow the packing guy inside only after your packing is done. And you better be the boss otherwise they will try to boss around. Shout at them or insist on what you need. They will always look for short cuts. So be watchful.
If you don't want any of these pains, go with Leo kind of guys and pay double. Still it all depends on the supervisor guy showing up that day.

Any feedback on pikkol.com? I've already booked them for my move within Bangalore. From Frazer Town to Yemalur. They have quoted 11.5k compared to 15K that Leo Packers quoted.
