Packers and Movers

Types Of Packers And Movers And Which One Should You Prefer?

Did you know? There are different types of packers and movers for different moving needs. If you didn’t, now you do.

There are a number of packers and movers in the country that cater to different types of moving needs. From home shifting to corporate shifting, short to long distances, intercity to international transport. Not all companies provide all the above mentioned facilities.

If you are planning to move, then it’s important to find the right packer and mover for better experience. For example, international packers and movers know the norms and policies well, so they can figure out the best way for moving. Similarly local packers and movers know their city like the back of their hand, so they can arrange all the necessary safety equipment to avoid accidents. Every type has its own expertise.

Therefore, today we are uncovering the various kinds of packers and movers out there and which ones are suitable for your moving needs.

Distance Based

Local: Local movers specially cater to intra city/town moving. They have a network of vehicles and manpower that know the city well and take the fastest and safest route to the destination.

Interstate: Moving from one city to another regardless of the distance? Interstate movers know all about relocating within states. We at Mega, for example, have drivers that know road networks across the country thoroughly, hence we know the best trucks and vans for moving all kinds of goods, vehicles, pets, antiques etc.

International: These shifting companies focus solely on international transport. The reason for this is the excessive paperwork and policies that international moving demands. They are professionals in handling any kind of issue and ensure that the work gets done on time.

Need Based

All-In One Service: As the name suggests, these companies are full-service companies that provide ALL kinds of shifting including home, office, showroom etc. These professionals look after all your needs from packing to unpacking, loading, supervision etc. They are the most preferred for home shifting and corporate shifting but that doesn’t mean you can’t opt for them for other reasons!

Help Yourself/ Self- Service: In this kind of service, you have to do all the packing and unpacking. Self-service moving companies help you load and unload heavy furniture and goods and help you with the moving. You have to be physically involved at every step, therefore, if you are on a budget with moving then this is the best option for you.

Truck Rentals: This is like a DIY service where you can rent a truck and do all the moving yourself. It’s perfect for those who don’t have a lot of stuff to move, nor have to travel a long distance. You can easily opt for this option for intra city moving.

Special Services: Some companies go beyond the norm by providing special moving services for special goods, products and sometimes, even animals! Let’s say that you wanted to relocate your aquarium from one place to another, then these special moving companies can help you arrange the equipment and handle the entire process. It’s perfect for fragile goods, special moving cases etc.


There are various types of moving companies out there. You can opt for a company based on distance or needs, whatever suits your preference.
