Shifting bike – Railways or Movers and Packers
Packers and Movers Pune

Two common options to deliver your bike to your desired location is Indian railways and movers and packers. Indian Railways is in business for transportation of passenger luggage which includes a wide range of food grains to many commercial items. They are not prominent in specific services in contrast to this Packers and Movers in this sphere is more specific to their business.

Indian Railways has two options of transportation 

  1. Luggage
  2. Parcel

When you are moving with your bike you can opt for Luggage as a confirmed reserved ticket is a must and your bike move on the same train in which you are moving. In parcel, you have to book but you don’t know in which train your bike is moving and it is with tie-up of Indian railway with India post so you indirectly facing two Indian government bodies, I hope you can take a hint out of my words.

So let’s evaluate their highlight features point-wise.

  1. Packers and movers are just a call away you call them and they are like Aladin ka jin, but for Indian railway, you have to visit the counter of Indian railway.
  2. Movers move with your terms, unlike railway for which you have to adopt yourself according to red-tapism where no one is there to entertain you at least specifically.
  3. Movers and packers take the burden of safe delivery individually but the later one takes no headache.
  4. They are time-bound and a single window to connect to you every part of the chain simply if I say you have a lens to track your bike at any part unlike this there is no clear structure in Indian railway in case if you have a problem there is no one to entertain you.
  5. They are for you up to your home they will deliver your bike at your door but railway delivery depends on the stop of the train by which your bike is moving.
  6. You need an original railway receipt no photocopy or softcopy works when you stuck in this there is only one option and that is the Indian judiciary i.e. you have to move to court 
  7. You need a good packer for your bike if you want to move your bike through wheels of Indian railway, look they are available around the counter but they charge for this and the packing quality depends on the hole in your pocket.
  8. With movers and packers, you can shift your other household with your bike and that is not possible with the Indian railway.

Packers and Movers are available in almost every city like in Pune, Mumbai, Chennai movers and packers are there for you and after some services, your interaction with them can shift your items even cheaper than Indian railways in future endeavors.
