Headed to the city of Charminar? Here’s an honest Moving Guide from ShiftKarado – leading packers and movers in Hyderabad.
When you move to Hyderabad, you enjoy the unique advantage of moving to two different cities at the same time. On the one hand you will be coming face to face with the sparkling, old world charm and culture of the ancient city, while on the other, there will be the joys of ‘Cyberabad’ – the cutting-edge IT hub – to savor. Whichever city you prefer – most people prefer a blend of the two – it’s good to make note of certain steps you must take to make your transition to this amazing city truly memorable.
The best way to experience the culture and life of Hyderabad is to mix with the locals, and that involves learning a bit of the local language – certainly some of the most common words and phrases that will let you get by initially. And this means familiarizing yourself with Telugu. In the ‘old city’, you will find people speaking in the Dakhanvi dialect. Gradually, as you interact more and more, you will be picking up the lingo on your own. Hindi, of course, remains popular, so if you are aware of Hindi, you start with an advantage.
No matter which packers and movers in Hyderabad you have chosen to partner for your move in the city, they will tell you (if you have taken the initiative to ask) that the cost of living in Hyderabad is one of the delights of the city. This is truly one of the cheapest metros in India. So no matter what your professional stage of life is – young, middle-age or senior – you are bound to find a satisfying and suitable apartment as per your budget.
If you are a young and starting out (or ‘starting up’), Hyderabad can be your ideal Launchpad. Teaming with a young population, the city naturally has plenty of facilities and amenities – be it for work, stay or entertainment – for the young crowd.
While choosing your accommodation in Hyderabad, it will make sense to opt for an address that is as close to your workplace as possible. If your workplace is not decided, or if it can change in the future, it will make sense to pick a spot that is centrally located or well connected with road networks and comes with robust public transport facilities. Traffic in Hyderabad can be bad – which isn’t a surprise if you are coming from another metro with bumper-to-bumper traffic like Bengaluru or Mumbai or Delhi, but can be a discomforting feeling initially if you are from a more peaceful and laid back city. Public transport offers an easy way out: Local trains are punctual and the local buses are aplenty, and there are special buses for women. Incidentally, Hyderabad is one of the safest cities for women.
No trip to Hyderabad is complete without food. If you have picked the right packers and movers in Hyderabad, you can unpack and organize your stuff quickly and seamlessly on the very day you reach and head out for a taste of the city by evening. Once you are reasonably settled in, make time to explore the culinary gems of the city. From Biryani & Haleem (the Nizam’s spread) to delectable Indian versions of Chinese to the local street ‘chaat’s, this city is nirvana for food lovers. And from overpriced to dirt-cheap, there are recipes and dishes to satisfy every budget. However, on the whole, outside food can be a little expensive if you make a regular habit of it – so it’s best to cook at home. When out, make sure you have plenty of water with you – carry it in a water bottle.
The easiest way to know more of Hyderabad is to make friends. That’s not difficult to do, since Hyderabadis are a social and friendly lot, and will warm up to you if you are genuine and nice with them.
Hyderabad is all the glitz of the new happily co-existing with the glory of the past. Choosing the best packers and movers in Hyderabad helps here as well, because the start is often the most important part. Once your relocation partner has helped you settle down smoothly without hassles and headaches, you are set to explore the city on your own and slip into your brand new lifestyle. There are plenty of heritage and cultural sites – so plan your itinerary well.
With a peacefully co-existing community (without significant communal conflicts), well developed urban and civic facilities and robust law standards, Hyderabad is a peaceful and exciting place to stay and start your new life’s journey.
Keep exploring (taking breaks with delicious Hyderabadi Irani tea and hearty bites of the local Osmania biscuit) your city with your band of new friends, respect the city’s tradition and history, make time for exercise – and soon you will find yourself becoming a Hyderabad fan.
