Waiting for the last minute

Rushing through the process at the last minutes is going to create more hassles and chaos, and I am sure you don’t want that, Normally seen that majority of people is believe that they have more time to do things than they actually have, you must plan and organize your move to avoid last minute chaos.  First of all, decide your moving out date, whether it is the end of your leasing period, joining date for your new job or just possession of your new house.

Once you have your moving out date finalised, count back to 6-8 weeks. You will need all this time to transfer gas connections, inform vendors, settle bills, sort out your belongings,  hiring movers, kids school transfer certificates and of course for packing.

If you plan things way ahead, you won’t be panic if a sudden unexpected task come.


Marking of Items

Do not believe in infallible visual memory, because of this belief people do not marked their boxes and kept in their head that which item in placed in which box or cartons.

Practically they creates confusion for themselves,  The situation in the new home will be very different from that of your current home, The huge piles of non-labelled boxes added with all the stress of loading, unloading and moving can easily confuse even the most observant person.

Marking of boxes will not only help in identify your belongings but it will help the loading or off loading team to identify fragile items or any other goods that need extra special care while loading/of loading.

Note :      Distance is not really matter in the costing, until unless distance is not more than 15/20 kms.

For Example: If you are shifting from Dwarka Sec 6 to Sector 4 its merely 4 km or you shift to Delhi cantt distance is 12 Kms. It doesn’t take more than 1 LTR of diesel for dwarka Sec 6 and 3 ltrs for delhi cantt ( approx Rs 50/150). So even your shifting distance is 1 km or 15 km(Local within city) still the logistic cost remains same. Cost changes when your truck  cross the borders otherwise the cost almost remains same.
