A Simple Yet Detailed Guide to Plan for Your Next Local Move!

by Ram Sewak Transportation
Relocations are always an overwhelming deal to break. The struggle begins months ahead of your move and finally ends weeks after you have successfully moved into your new, dream home. For someone like you who has to shift bases and keep juggling from one city to another and this time from Chennai to Delhi, all of a sudden, due to a transferrable job, things might be difficult. We understand your story and resonate pretty well with how you must be managing the entire packing and moving on your own. If you have always had a hard time planning for moves, then here is some great guidance!

Our blog post is a detailed checklist that you can fall back on, anytime you plan to relocate. But make sure you hire the best packers and movers in Chennai, so you can enjoy a hassle-free moving experience. When you move locally, within the country borders, the hassle is nowhere less compared to the long-distance moves. But, with a few ideas and a great checklist in hand, we can dive over the situation pretty easily and with a happier mind and soul!

Coming up with a practical moving budget

Soon after you think of making a house move, you should look over your finances so you can keep aside some amount that you would need to pay for the moving cost and some for the sundry expenses. Remember, relocations have always been an expensive affair and you would never realize how your moving cost would multiply all of a sudden and you will run around to arrange some more money. So, stop spending money on random things at least for few months before the move and etch out a tentative budget including all the possible costs that your move would entail you to pay for – including the equipment costs, packing supplies cost, storage costs, specialty items cost, transportation costs, insurance cost, etc. Keep a generous amount of money as your security deposit because you might need some, maybe at some point during the transit.

Follow it up with a fool proof moving plan

Have you ever proceeded with any major, life-altering task or even a small task for that matter, without a great moving plan? I am sure, not. Every task, every assignment we undertake needs to have a sufficient amount of thoughtful planning and decision making and for that, you need ample time and patience. So, take some time out of your busy schedule to sit with your family to further decide what all needs to be done and things you are still left with handling. The moving date you choose should go with the schedule of the working members in your family. There will several things that would call for your attention – informing friends and colleagues, severing the utility connections from the current address and getting them reinstalled in your new one, completing the bank dues, and resolving the credit card statements before you leave your place and notifying the professional movers on time – all these tasks not just need your time but you need to have a calm and composed mind to focus on these at one go.

Research well and finalize movers

Once you have the moving budget and strategy, you should devote your time to browse moving options that address your moving requirements and also are cost-effective. Do check out online reviews, customer feedback, and also seek referrals to come across a smart moving plan. Always collect and compare few quotations before you decide which one to accept. There are few other things you should check ahead of signing a moving deal, they are:

The license and registration terms

The payment and insurance policies

Company credentials and T&C

Goods handling and packing process

Aggregate packing-moving costs and fees

Some preparation on your end is needed

Now when you have booked the professionals for your house move, you can take a sigh of relief because they are indeed great support when you already have innumerable responsibilities to fulfil and pre-moving tasks to take care of. This is time for you to look into the countless household articles that you have in your place – decide if you need all of them in your new home or there are chances of lessening the moving load. Keep your sorting and de-cluttering task simple and quick. Do not dig deep into things when you are on the brink of deciding whether you should move it or not. Make piles and discard anything useless, donate things that could be of worth to someone else, and sell out if you have collected stuff that you no longer use but are of fair value.

Invest time in re-arrangement of goods

The moving team would deliver all your goods and possessions to your specified address (address of your new home) as per the given date. The moment your goods get unloaded from the moving truck, make sure you and someone in your family remain on the spot. Keep the inventory handy so you can inspect all the packages to see if something is missing from the lot or something is damaged. If you have chosen a full-service moving company, the experts will not only unload the goods but also unbox the moving cartons, and re-arrange the stuff at their designated place. Make sure you look after them while they are doing it so you can guide them with the organization process.


If there is an urgency, and you have to plan for a move in hurry, then you might be feeling chaotic and stressed out. After all, there is quite a lot that you have to look after at – from the packing and preparations before the move, to talk to the landlord of the new house you are moving in, to the essential service providers and whatnot. Moreover, you also need to book the professional movers and packers in Chennai on time, so that your move turns out to be more convenient and sorted. Amidst all that, make sure you check out this guide so you can have fun moving to your new home!
