Complete overhaul in Shifting services ushered by ShiftKarado
For relocation, more often than not, we depend upon typical packers and movers. The methodology adopted by them tends to be cumbersome and are not able to bring efficiency to the table. In the obsolete process, there are many unproductive things which need to be cut down. These complexities kindled a need to catch people off guard by cutting corners. A unique solution was in high demand to cut corners while relocating. In such circumstances, ShiftKarado got the ball rolling by delivering exclusive tech-based services. Its solutions are as unique as its name. Quite possibly, Adnan Sami and his popular song might be doing round circles in the grey cells of co-founders while working on the nomenclature of the company. But, there is no doubt that the company has garnered equivalent success as the song lift kara do did. The Gurugram based startup has gone the extra mile to provide the effortless shifting services. Since its inception in late 2015, it has remained on the good side of its clients due to time saving and smooth services.
The company took a cue from the huge gap amongst the demand and supply of efficient packers and movers in the Indian market. The co-founders well aware of the prevalent problems in this domain such as lack of rules and regulations, costly and poorly managed services, and no security of products in the nation. From the ground up, the co-founders of the company started working on the idea of ShiftKarado. It offers packing, loading, unloading, transporting, relocating services for households and corporates for local shifting and inter-city moving. The company came in existence out of a need for a transparent and real-time solution for the domestic packing and moving industry.
From the very beginning, the company has always been steadfast to cater personalized services to its clients, by means of advanced Digital Technology. It has tasted success by catering to numerous B2B and B2C clients across the country. The procedure to get its service is sui generis. Customers can simply fill an online form on the website shiftkarado.com or mobile app sharing their requirements and other details to get a customized instant quote of opportune services and booking the shift saving a lot of time. Both the mobile app and website have a standard interface for trouble-free bookings and secure payments.
Know-how of global standards
The technological aspects of the company along with its understanding of the international benchmarks set ShiftKarado apart and give an edge over the competitors. Other than that, it yields instant booking, instant quotation, urban mobility, security, as well as transparency in services to household and corporate clients. Sailing through the initial hiccups, the company went on to carve a niche in this industry. The company overcame challenges by providing intelligent templates that would auto populate the information. To make its services convenient, it launched ShiftKarado Android App and Web Application in August 2016 to provide a standard and simple interface for instant pricing, trouble-free bookings, and secure payments. This was one of a kind initiative in this space. It worked on an algorithm which had the potential to assist the company in its swift pricing bringing the pricing from days to few seconds.
In a very short span of time, the company has managed to build an extensive client base. Apart from serving individuals, it also caters to corporate clients and companies like Dainik Bhaskar, Prop Tiger and CIANS etc. There are some of the clients who frequently hire ShiftKarado for transporting and relocating services. Moreover, ShiftKarado has also joined hands with OYO rooms for the Pan India relocation of their employees.
Ensuring stress-free shifting
The tech-enabled app and website makes it conducive for people to approach the company. Far cry from the traditional packers and movers, ShiftKarado leverages Digital Technology to prepare a fertile ground for people across the country and help them with their relocation needs. Customers simply need to fill an online form by visiting the website or using mobile app. After that, they need to fill in the required fields to get a customized instant quote of opportune services. The mobile app and the website comes with a standard interface for trouble-free bookings and secure payments.
Moreover, the company is looking forward to integrate its website and app with Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence. This is meant to help the company in keeping the entire relocation process more transparent and instantaneous. While other relocation service providers take 24-48 hours; just to give a rough estimation of service charges to the customers. ShiftKarado cuts it short to as less than 10 minutes. It saves them a lot of time and gives them the freedom to plan the entire move on basis of their availability.
