I need to shift my stuff from Thiruvanmiyur, Chennai to Karunamoyee (Salt Lake), Kolkata.

Me being a student, the majority of the stuff comprises of books, prinouts and notes.
Remaining luggage being clothes, camp cot etc.
My first priority is not to sell these things but rather bring them to home with me as I would need them anyways.
I believe the total weight of stuff is not more than 300Kgs - infact it can be around 200Kg too.
I got in touch with some movers and packers and they tell me that they will come to my home for inspection (where I will have to pay Rs 1000 for that "service") and then tell how much it will cost me.

When I asked them the typical figure of door-to-door delivery, they said ~Rs 60000 (which is not even double of what my things are worth in total).

I believe while door-to-door delivery cost indeed be a costly proposition, there should be other ways out of transferring my stuff safetly.

Any ideas of good movers and packers who can help me with the interstate transfers?

How much would this really cost?
