Shifting your residence or moving equipment and
material need the expertise of professional packers.
A packer who can take good care of your goods
should ensure that:
Your goods reach
There is no serious damage done to the goods.
There is no pilferage.
Hire a packer who has his own means of transport.
If the packer depends on another company for transport,
it could result in confusion, at the cost of your
money or goods.
The transport company may not accept responsibility
for any damages en route, blaming the packing
company for poor work. Or the packer may blame
the transporter for damage of goods.
Make sure the packing company insures the goods
before transporting them. You must make a detailed
list of all the goods being moved. Make two copies,
one for you and one for the packer. If both parties
sign on the list, it avoids doubt later on.
Check the credentials of the company you hire.
If they have letters or certificates from satisfied
customers, see if you can crosscheck a few. Your
goods are the result of years of hard work, see
that they are in good hands .
is the watchword
Reliability is the watchword in the transport
business. Your prime concern when you send goods
through a transporter are timely delivery of goods
and no damage and pilferage. A good transport
company should ensure both.
If you are sending goods in bulk, choose
a company that specialises in such work. Sometimes
a transporter waits for the truck to reach its
full capacity despatch. So you will be in trouble
if you want even your small goods delivered in
a hurry. So choose a company which can guarantee
service on time.
Most companies arrange for the goods to be insured.
If you are sending valuable materials make sure
you insure them yourself.
