Factors That affect your Shifting Cost
We have talked about saving your money while shifting household goods. Now, let's look at different factors that can increase your shifting cost.
Quantity and Weight of Luggage
If you live in a 3BHK apartment, you might have a lot of household goods. The more quantity of goods you will have, the more space it will require and the bigger truck will be needed. Even the overall weight of luggage can increase the cost because it will exhaust more fuel. The increase in transportation size can increase the shifting cost because transportation accounts for more than 50% of the total shifting cost.
Distance between Current Location & Destination
Your destination or house location is a significant factor for high shifting costs. Different places will have various cost factors. Let'sLet's understand it by an example. If you are moving 3BHK goods from Delhi to Lucknow, the cost will be around Rs 9000. but the same 3BHk moving from Delhi to Manali cost Rs.7500.
Even though the distance is the same, the demand for moving to Lucknow is less than in Manali. It is called an Outward destination. It will reduce the cost if you are moving to a favourable destination.
Shared or Separate Vehicle
The shared and separate vehicles have their own advantages. In terms of pricing, a Shared vehicle saves around 25% of shifting cost as compared to an individual vehicle. A separate vehicle is only advisable if you are living in a bigger house or 3BHK apartment. For 1BHK or 2BHK owners, you should get a shared vehicle with 2 other household goods to save your cost. A shared vehicle can only cost you more if the vendor doesn't properly arrange your goods in trucks, which might get stolen or cracked.
Apart from Packing material, transportation, and labour charges, Some additional services can increase your cost. For long-distance shifting, Insurance is advisable for everyone to save on future losses. But insurance costs around 3% of total household goods. You will need assembly/disassembly service for AC that can cost around Rs.300-500. If you want the staff to take the household goods inside the house, they will ask for additional money or tip. In case you don't have a working elevator, the need for a rope or pulley may burn your wallet.
Labour Charges in Your Area
The manpower is executing all the house shifting work such as packing, loading, transportation, unloading, and unpacking. Without them, work is impossible. Their high pricing can affect your shifting costs. Labour charges in Tier-1 cities are higher than in Tier-2&3 cities. These charges are increased or decreased according to the demand and years of experience. An experienced delhi labour asks for 1.5 times more money than Gurugram labour. The labour will ask for more money if you live in a posh area (even in a rental house).
What are the risks you face while self-shifting in Delhi?
Some people tend to save even more money. They decide to shift their household goods by themselves. At the same time, self-shifting is not bad but may come with many risks. Self-shifting in Delhi can be a scary experience for you. Let'sLet's look at possible dangers without being ignorant.
