Why it is that the cost of with in a city home relocation is way less than the cost of outside the city or interstate home relocation in Hyderabad, even if we consider the costs involved in actual transportation? We receive various types of questions, both logical and dumb ones and in this post, I am going to give you a very good overview of everything worth knowing about home relocation.
Home relocation services in Hyderabad
And I am writing this post in the form of question and answer to make it easier for you to read and find answers for the specific question that you may have with regards to home relocation services in Hyderabad.
Basic overview of home relocation services in Hyderabad
Relocation services may be required for various reasons, such as;
To move entire household articles within Hyderabad
To pack and move domestic household things from Hyderabad to other city/state
To relocate office
To move car and motorbikes or scooty
To pack and move heavy industrial goods and equipment
And there may be other purposes like sending just one fridge to your native place from Hyderabad and so on. Packing and moving all these goods on your own may not always be possible and hence there is a need for professional help from packers and movers. Packers and movers are basically well-equipped agencies who help us in relocating things that usually can’t be shipped easily through a courier company. The way courier companies and logistic agencies help you in sending small parcel and documents (Outside the city or within a city), you can use packers and movers to relocate heavier household goods, office items, car, bike and industrial goods etc.
What is Outside the city and within a city relocation?
When you wish to move locally within the city that is a city home relocation. Within a city, relocation is mostly relevant for shifting of domestic household articles (household shifting) and shifting of office goods like furniture, desks, computers etc (office relocation).
Within a city relocation is when you are moving outside of the city/state. For example, if you have been transferred to Pune from Hyderabad then you would like to pack and shift all of the household articles, car, bike everything and that is outside the city relocation.
Usually standard with in a city /local home relocation services may start from Rs. 6000.00 and go up based on various points. Similarly, an interstate/ Outside the city relocation for a fully furnished 2 BHK may starts from Rs. 15000 and go up based on distance and volume of goods.

How do I find rates of movers for relocation services in Hyderabad?
The easiest way to find rates of movers for home or vehicle relocation services in Hyderabad is to use Agarwal Packers and Movers among other ways such as finding and calling movers individually to inquire about their rates and charges. Other ways to know rates could search on google to find the contact number of movers based in Hyderabad and then call them to ask about their rates and charges as per your needs.
Since rates of movers for relocation may vary from agency to agency, it’s better to inquire from a couple of agencies before hiring. It will help you in understanding the process and get a better idea of rates and charges as well.
Why there is a difference in rates between movers in Hyderabad?
A difference of rates between movers in Hyderabad is because of the resources they have and the quality of overall services. For example, a mover who is well connected and resourceful and offers good quality packing and transporting service may charge you a little more than the agency that is comparatively smaller and new and has less overhead. Similarly quality of packing and packing materials is the other reasons for the difference in rates of movers in Hyderabad.
What’s included under relocation service?
Typically it all starts with a survey (on phone or physical survey) to assess the requirements and efforts. After surveying, the movers will submit estimates for relocation services. Once you agree, both of you can mutually schedule the dates for packing and shifting. Typically the full service should include packing, loading, transporting, insurance and unloading on delivery.
What about safety of goods while relocating?
This is one of the key concerns for anyone relocating household goods or vehicles. How would you ensure that your goods are in the safe hands? There must be a mechanism, right? Well, there is. Packers and movers move your good with insurance (Transit or full service and you can read more about it here). But it’s your responsibility to check with the movers and ensure that the quote is inclusive of insurance and that the goods are insured against any damage in transit.
But unfortunately many of use avoid insurance for within a city relocation and that can be terrible. Chances of damage is more or less same irrespective of whether you are relocating locally or moving out of state and hence it’s important to talk about insurance even in case of local shifting. Costs of moving insurance is just 1.5% to 3% plus service tax and if you look at it, it won’t be a lot of money.
Can I use movers to relocate single items locally in Hyderabad?
We receive this question most often when someone wants to relocate a fridge from one side of Hyderabad to the other side. Unfortunately, mover’s services are not best suited for such needs and it’s advised to use an independent man with van people for such relocation needs. Relocation services that packers and movers offer are best suited when you have at least a few heavy items. It won’t be cost effective to hire movers to send single items to a fridge or a washing machine or just one cupboard. But if you want to relocate all three of them together, it will certainly make sense to use mover’s services.
What if I just want to relocate a car or a bike from Hyderabad?
Movers can be used for car transportation from Hyderabad to elsewhere. There are specialist car carriers as well who only transport car or you can use movers services the one you hire for home relocation needs. If you want to move the only bike, you can still use movers services, but then it may time depending on the route (destination where you want to move it). To address your safety concerns, cars are also insured against any transit damage.
Do they send the car and household goods in same truck?
No. to transport a car, they use car carrier truck (open or closed carrier). Car and household goods will be transported separately in different trucks.
When is the right time to start looking for a service provider?
So the right time is the moment you decide to relocate. Usually, it’s better to start early and schedule everything from surveying to packing, transporting and delivery. If you start the process in the last hours, you may end up paying more or hiring mediocre service providers.
Over to you
Relocating a home, office, car or bike involves lots of complexity. There is so much of uncertainty and hence it’s important to pay attention to detail. But if you research well, inquire a couple of agencies, compare rates and profile before hiring a mover for your relocation needs, you will get it right.
