For example, you live in Pune and have hired local relocation companies, they will count or weigh every item before they seal boxes and transport them to another area. They conduct inspection during the packing process and carefully examine every product, box and container to ensure they are not broken and packaging specifications are met. If any damaged or defective product is there, they set the item aside instead of packed in boxes or container.
