Experience does matter when it comes to hiring movers and packers

Quick! What is the one thing that must be at the top of the mind when it comes to hiring moving companies in Dubai?

Lowest Deal Cost?

One couldn’t be any further away from the right answer. But this is a common mistake that is repeated by many a prospective customer of removalcompanies in Dubai. Few realize that they are entrusting their lives’ worth of belongings and memories in the hands of strangers. Little wonder then, that awareness about the ‘quality of service offering’ as an important criterion for selection of movers and packers is lower than what it should be. Then, there is also the other end of the customer spectrum that believes in the ‘Do-It-Yourself’ spirit.  Truth be told, such an approach too is not in the best of interests towards having a quality moving experience.

Relocations are a time of great excitement and intense activity. But they can also be rather taxing and leave one with a feeling that they are out of their elements, when the things get serious. All this can be rather beyond the means and capabilities of the well meaning, yet unskilled group of friends/family & relatives.

There are tons of things to take into consideration to affect a successful move. Multiple factors need to be evaluated and decisions have to be made. All these need to be carried out in a challenging environment where the situation may change in the very next minute. No wonder then that most failed moves end up being high on the frustration and stress levels.

Professionally managed operations on the other hand couldn’t be more suited to the job at hand. This is true about movingcompanies in Dubai and even elsewhere around the world. They tend to be staffed with the right kind of people, specializing in the myriad tasks that are part and parcel of a move. Tooling too is an important aspect in such situations, especially when one is looking to have a damages free move. Most importantly, professionally run moving companies are often staffed with experienced personnel that make a huge difference in the success rate of a move.

Some of the characteristics reflected by experienced and quality oriented setups are:

·         Proper handling of all belongings
·         Segregation according to the shape/size/strength and value of each article
·         Proper labelling and colour coding of boxed items
·         Correct stacking procedures
·         Detailed tracking of the consignment from doorstep to doorstep

At the end of the day, one must bear in mind that quality does not come cheap. All the experienced movers and packers are likely to charge according to their level of expertise. Thus, it would be wise to ignore the lure of tripping for the lowest possible deal and opt for the peace-of-mind that’s offered by an experienced operator.

Quality -The decisive factor to evaluating moving companies in Dubai

Life in Dubai has changed quite a bit from the way it was just a few decades ago. Gone are those familiar points of cultural and social reference. Almost every other day, players in the infrastructure and development industry tend to come up with new ways to dazzle the world. The constant upheavals and changes in Dubai’s environment have taken ‘transient’ to a new level altogether.

Nothing epitomizes this better than the realty and rentals market in Dubai. People out here are constantly on the move. The lure of newer, better challenging growth opportunities and the constant influx of talented individuals from various corners of the world have played their role in this situation.

Not everyone gets bogged down by the challenges of moving home within Dubai. These are the ones that are smart enough to realize that moving is a task that is beyond their capabilities. They understand that the complexities involved in the task are best left to the specialists. After all, it is the latter that have the trained personnel, appropriate equipment and adequate experience that one needs to successfully carry out a move. No surprise then to learn about moving companies in Dubai reporting strong growth figures year after year.

A common thread running through customers’ minds, even in the highly complex world of moving, is quality customer service. This need for a quality offering transcends both, budget and scale of operations. Successful moves are often the result of underlying synergies between customer expectations and the delivery quality by the service provider. Subsequently, it is important that one must be extremely careful when screening for the most appropriate choice.

Sadly, few movers and packers in Dubai truly understand the ramifications of running a slack operation. The resultant stress levels that are a by-product of a move that is marred by glitches, tends to have far-reaching repercussions. This is especially true in an increasingly connected world where word-of-mouth publicity and personal recommendations are often valued over third party badges of approval.

Not surprisingly, the exodus has already begun. More and more people are ditching operators whose service levels are sub-par. In an industry where people have no choice but to trust absolute strangers with their life’s belongings, it is fast becoming the deciding factor for success and growth.

So the next time one is on the lookout for removal companies, do keep aside the snazzy website and glittering ad campaigns and evaluate them thoroughly on the quality of their offerings.
