  1. Shiftkarado is a niave team who dont know their job.

    I had an extremely bad experience with Shift karado, They have an extremely unprofessional naive team who have just made an fancy App and dont have any resources of their own. Their ops team is extremely unprofessional in managing cutomers request, even a minimal 2bhk home shifting took a huge toll on them. I had requested for a movement of my home from Hyderabad to Bangalore. They had come with small auto type truck pickup and unprofessional packagers. After packing then have left half of the packages at home, they had left 20 packages at home and were stating the vehicles has only space for this much, for the rest pay 3000 rupees extra and then they’ll return with extra vehicle. Already they had raised an invoice of 29,500/- which I had made complete payment a day before the shifting day, and this was infact Already 1000 rupees more than Agarwal packers. Just the sales person convinced that they would do a better care of the shipping and warehousing I opted for these useless fellows.

    The incharge started arguing pay extra 3000 rupees, when we told them that the entire transaction is complete and we have already paid more for your services, please contact with the shiftkarado team, he just left with the 20 boxes lying at my home. The entire circus took a few hour, and i was forced to pay 3000 and only then they took the stuff. Which costed me a total of 32,500/- just to shift almost items of a 2 bhk. Imagine 4000 more than agarwal packers + the trauma and unprofessional JOB.

    I was stupid enough to fall for their claims, Please do not use Shiftkarado, go with any local guys or best go with the knowns ones in your market, these guys are just a bunch of kids and fraudent in their dealing. A humble request from a concerned citizen so that this doesn’t happen with anyone else.
