Five tech enabled aggregators providing shifting solutions
As technology enters every domain of our lives, the moving and packing too is benefitting from it.
Challenges like unfair pricing, damage of items, defacement of furniture or fragile objects, items unaccounted for during transit, unprofessional behaviour of packing and moving teams, lack of real-time update during long-route transit and glitches while tracking, plague the mover during shifting.
One way to tackle all these issues in a single go is to choose an aggregator for the relocation purpose, instead of going for a standalone mover and packer. To ease things further, here is compiled a list of five movers and packers aggregators who are upping the ante and restructuring the space with tech-powered innovations.

Launched in 2020, the aggregator already has a pan-India network of movers and packers who operate in a standardized manner under the banner of Shift Freight.
Boasting of a five-star rating by nearly 90% of its consumers, the aggregator has in place a tech-based bidding system to offer the best pricing and a dedicated move coordinator to assist consumers till last mile delivery. The other services include real time glitch-free tracking of consignment, trained manpower and state-of-the-art sanitization machinery.
