Points to keep in mind when moving from Bangalore to Mumbai

Know thy city: The biblical saying “Know Thy Neighbor” could very well apply to a city as well, don’t you think? When compared to Bangalore (once a pensioner’s paradise like Pune) life in Mumbai is very, very hectic. The huge amounts of travel distance and the “Mumbai madness” takes some getting used to.  So keep calm and carry on! It gets better and you really begin to feel the Mumbai magic!

A Place called Home: The real estate prices of Mumbai are legendary – no wait – they are actually sky rocketing! Renting a place in Mumbai is a costly affair and even then you could end up living in a matchbox, so to speak. Most affordable housing options are limited to Navi Mumbai, Thane, or any other upcoming suburb. Pune too will one day become a Mumbai suburb- the way things are going!

Early bird gets the worm: You can never plan enough, when it comes to relocating to a new city. Start planning your move at least 6 to 8 weeks in advance. This will give you ample time to get organized so that no last minute tasks are left!

Hire professional packers and movers: While getting friends to help or roping in your neighborhood packer and mover worked may have worked while you were single, once you have set up house – it’s time to call in the professionals. All your belongings, delicate crockery and furniture should be professionally packed if you want them to arrive safe and sound in Mumbai!

Preliminary Site survey: Any good and professional packers and movers will do a preliminary site survey to understand the quantum of work involved in the final move. EZMove.in proprietary portal makes this very easy by providing you automated online quotes! And the best part is that it’s free! Our web portal aggregates quotes from verified and reliable packers and movers – so that you find the best quote sitting in the comfort of your home! And did we mention the best part?

The best deal isn’t always the cheapest one: Price shouldn’t be the only factor determining which packer and movers you finalize! Surveying the market to find the best value proposition is always the better option. The ease of business allows many unscrupulous and on the fly moving companies to flourish. These vendors will give you a deal – too good to be true – and then will cut corners when it comes to packaging material and safe transport of your goods. EZmove.in helps to weed out these detractors by allowing only pre-vetted and verified vendors to send you the best quotes.

The only time to bulk up: Indian roads are always on the mend! So you can imagine the number of ‘jhatkas’ your stuff will be get before it reaches its final destination. A bumpy ride, speed breakers, loading and unloading can be toll-taking on your fragile crockery!  In many cases transporters send another vechicle to pick up your stuff, and yet another to deliver them. So, don’t hire a moving company that scrimps on bubble wrap and packaging material. After all your beautiful handpicked furniture and your wedding china – both deserve the best!

Time your Move: Discuss timelines and how long it will take for the moving company to transport all your goods from Bangalore to Mumbai safely. This is all the more important if you are moving with family and pets. Planning their stay in a new city is also a tremendous task.

Rain on your parade: Bangalore is a city notorious for sudden climate changes. Mumbai too can experience light drizzle showers without warning. Keeping these climatic changes in mind will help you to plan better. While it may be quicker to move house in the spring and summer – monsoons are a pain.
