I need names of good moving companies for a local move within the DelhiNCR region. Anyone with a fairly decent experience, kindly oblige with some details. Do International movers also do local moves, or is it not worth their time and effort?

Agarwal Movers and Packers (M&P) is what comes to the mind immediately. Had used them to shift stuff from Delhi to Kolkata. The packing was professional. And so was moving, no damages. Price was higher than expected, and when insurance was also included it went up quite high. Another option is looking up the classified pages of the local newspaper and look under movers and packers.

Get quotes/estimates from at least 3 different parties for a proper negotiation round. Ask them to come and visit and see first hand what has to be moved and give you an estimate in writing. Be wary of unsaid costs. Example: Charges differ if things have to be moved from/to higher number of floors, so has to clearly state this in the first round itself. If things have to be moved within Delhi only, I do not think there is any need to insure.

If the distance is only a couple of blocks, even thelawalahs (cycle-rickshaw that carry goods on a flat board) can shift stuff under your watch and guidance.

Thanks for the info, Ashyashwin! Sorry for the delay in my reply. Will follow up with above mentioned movers. Any leads are helpful. Unfortunately the 'thelawalahs' might buckle under the weight of the home goods! Only a truck would suffice.
