You should do the following to avoid fraud movers and packers

  1. Go for Authentic and Most trusted Packers like best movers and packers in Nizampet Hyderabad (Get an estimate, Call their customer care, Read reviews, know about their way of tracking luggage)
  2. If you are not sure if the movers and packers are authentic. Search on Google using Company name, person’s name, person’s phone number, and person’s bank account number. I would suggest you take a copy of the person’s PAN CARD as well
  3. Visit their Office as well to make sure they have a valid address.
  4. Don’t trust any company Blindly.
  5. As per my personal experience, Fraud people copy the brand name of an existing famous company so that even if you search on Google, you will find good reviews. Be Cautious.
  6. Try to choose Movers and packers that are being used by big companies to provide relocation to employes.
  7. Don’t go for movers and packers only because of the low estimated price. Trust me it feels really bad when you lose all your household stuff to fraud people.
  8. On the day of packing, see how movers and packers are packing your luggage. If they are not doing so properly, Then take action during that time. Usually, fraud movers and packers want to take your stuff asap, so you won’t pay much care to your luggage. Also, don’t give them your vehicle keys and ask them for a copy of the insurance. (Luggage Insurance)
  9. Lastly, do all your research and take your time before choosing any mover and packer.
