This is how a family moved their house during the Pandemic


Gurugram, July 28- The pandemic of coronavirus led to an unpreceded lockdown in the country. Lakhs of people were left displaced and stranded in various places. The logistics industry was restricted to movement of essential goods only and the movement of packers and movers was not allowed for a large part of the lockdown. That’s the reason why lakhs of people couldn’t do their home shifting and got stranded. India’s largest transport company aggregator which lists the best transporters in the country and helps people connect with trusted packers and movers shared a few happy stories with us. These customer stories are told by people who were able to shift effortlessly during the time that all activity was restricted in the country. These stories of happy household shifting are a huge humanitarian and logistic effort both by the packers and movers as well as the other people involved.

Purshottam Mittal, a small business owner in Delhi lives in the same city with his family. His elderly parents also stay with him in the same house. When the lockdown started, his small business was suffering and he decided to give up his rental household and move back to their ancestral house for a few months. They belonged to Ranchi and they decided to move with their household stuff to their home town. But in May, when the packers and movers were not allowed to operate, it was difficult to find a good moving company to help them. They contacted and requested for the best home shifting quotes. The website connected them with the top IBA packers and movers in Delhi who shared very competitive moving charges with them. That is when the difficult work started.

With elderly parents and small children, Mittal was skeptical about how the packing will be done. He didn’t want to expose his parents to any outsiders. The movers assured him of all precautions and safety measures during the packing and unpacking. The home shifting company made sure all documentation was done digitally so Mittal didn’t have to meet too many people in person. On the two days that packing was done, they ensured all staff came and verified their status in the Arogya Setu App. All the packing staff came wearing face shields and masks and kept on sanitizing their hands periodically. They moved from room to room packing everything diligently. Without any lunch breaks, they worked continually for 48 hours. The entire household was packed in record time and the house was ready to move.

The Mittals went the next day after their trucks were flagged off. The family had a small house but the household stuff was a lot. They had two trucks loaded with their family stuff. The trucks took one day and two nights to reach and everything arrived in perfect shape. The damage free household shifting of a family who seeked help was just another feather to their cap.
