Based on my personal experience and the number of calls we receive everyday at Sharma Relocation Packers and Movers, this seems to be the most frequently asked question. Every third caller who calls our helpline no, want to know the charges and costs of hiring a movers and packers for shifting or storage needs.

Most often the person on the call from the other side, want to find the rates and costs of hiring movers services. But since rates of movers and packers services usually depend on different parameters like distance, volume of goods, credentials of the movers and also on the situation aka urgency level of the user, it’s difficult to answer this question straight away. There is no specific rate card and hence rates of movers could easily vary from case to case basis.

It’s not possible to know about costs of hiring movers, without even explaining about the goods that you want to pack and move and from which city in India to which city. Hence in this post I want to give you a detailed overview of how much does it cost to hire movers and packers in India for various types of services including home shifting, vehicle shifting, household storage and warehousing services?

Cost heads of movers and packers in India Different companies may have different taxing and other regulatory policies. But we are talking about Indian movers and companies and hence let’s understand the key cost heads;

  • Cost of packing materials
  • Packing Charges
  • Handling charges (includes loading and unloading)
  • Insurance charges
  • Transportation charges
  • Costs of value added services (optional)
  • Applicable taxes (service tax, octroi, toll tax etc)
  • More or less that’s pretty much what a movers and packers will charge you.
  • Now if you look at it, nearly all of the cost heads will vary depending on;
  • The volume of goods - Packing materials, handling charge, insurance, transportation etc will vary depending on goods.

    Distance - Distance matters when you are moving and it affects transportation charges. It may apply for storage service as well because goods have to be transported from your house to their warehouse for storage.

    Insurance - Since we are talking of all the parameters, we can’t ignore the costs of insuring your goods against any damage during transportation. Movers and packers in India offer two types of insurance and that’s costs differently. Cost of insurance will depend on the commercial value of goods and it may be charges @1.5 % in case of transit insurance and @3% of the declared value for full inclusive insurance.

    Obviously that’s not the way to get most accurate estimates, but unfortunately that’s how it is. Based on assumptions you can only get a ball park idea, never the accurate costs. And movers and packers companies are quite open to negotiate anyways.
