India as a country has come a long way since its independence in 1947. The population has increased multifold over the last 70 years and innovative solutions have been developed to support it. Over the last few decades, the economy has grown in size to provide employment and a new lifestyle to the young of the country. The infrastructure in the country today matches that of the developed countries. A few decades ago, you would only see cars of brand ambassadors or imported ones on the road of the country. Towards the beginning of 1990’s Maruti was introduced in India and it quickly gained popularity. In the 21st century there are umpteen Indian car manufacturers competing with each other to catch the eye of the burgeoning middle class. The services for Car Transport in India, have evolved with the cars in the country. With the increase in the number of these vehicles, the demand for shifting requirements for them has increased too.
When there is no option
There are service providers in the country assisting with moving your car locally, domestically and internationally. Vehicle owners rarely hire shifting services for moving locally within their city, as they can easily drive their vehicle to the destination easily. As for international moves, most people don’t take their car with them due to limited or no options available for servicing and repairs of Indian brands. If you own a popular international brand, you can take your car with you when you shift abroad. So, these service providers are hired mostly for domestic shifting, when you move to a distant city within your state or in other states. The reason for this is that it will be difficult to drive the car yourself over such a long distance. The practical problems you may face are:
- You will suffer from fatigue driving over such a long distance. You will need to have good knowledge of the route too.
- You will have to worry about the fuel cost and you will have to find the right refueling points too.
- If your car breaks down on the way, it will be difficult to connect with mechanics.
Hence its best to hire the professional shifting services. You will not have to worry about your health or fuel costs.
The time to move your car
Whenever you have requirements for home shifting, only then will you take your car with you. However, your vehicles are always moved separately from other goods due to safety concerns. Most packers and movers aim to provide all shifting services under one roof. This means that they will arrange services for home and vehicle relocation. If they don’t, they will connect you with their trusted business partners.
The technical part of moving cars
Most vehicle shifting companies offer door to door services. They arrange different modes of transport for different destinations. Containerized trucks or hydraulic trailers are used when the destination can be reached comfortably via roads. However, for even longer distances a combination of these vehicles with shifting by train is used for domestic moves. To move your car via trains, you will need to book spaces on containers and wait for your turn at the stations close to Inland Container Depots (ICDs) of the country. For international moves via sea, these containers are loaded onto ships for journey to destination country. If you are exceptionally rich, spaces on airplanes can be booked for your vehicles too. You must have someone at the destination address to collect your car or else spaces in warehouses will be required for storage till you can come and collect your vehicle. Major car manufacturers ship their products, the cars in bulk via trains to the major cities in different states.
The rise of vehicle movers
The moving companies in the country can be classified as local, national and multinational companies. The local ones have an office in their home city while the national ones have branches across the country. The multinationals, as the name suggests have branches in major cities of the world including their home country. The local companies have to seek assistance from and coordinate with their counterparts at the destination location. The larger ones are easily able to arrange moves between the cities they have branches in. As for remote locations, they too will have to forge relationships with new business partners. The growth in infrastructure is the main reason for the existence of these companies. There are the roads, rails, sea ports and airports where they can ply their trade. These companies keep up to date with the happenings on the international scene and upgrade their methods, tools and transport vehicles accordingly.
And the journey starts
It doesn’t matter what the brand or model of your car is, these will be moved seamlessly and without any hassle to any destination of your choice. You will be provided with tracking tools so you are aware of the progress of your car at any point of time. These professionals are using the latest technology not just to promote themselves but to provide improved services too.
