Moving home from Mumbai to Pune?

Author: Sangram Sawant

Mumbai is the capital of Maharashtra. It is also the largest city in the state and is known to be the city of dreams. Every day, many people from all parts of the country pack their bags and move to the city of dreams to make a better life and living for themselves.

Pune, is the second largest city in Maharashtra. The booming IT industry in Pune attracts many young professionals to this city for work opportunities. Pune is also an educational hub with lots of renowned educational institutes being situated here. A lot of students and professionals in the field of education move here each year.

Are you moving to Pune with your family, for work? Or moving back there from Mumbai?

Pune is 149.3 kilometres away from Mumbai and takes around 3 hours to reach. Looking at it that way, it might seem like an easy move. But don’t let it fool you into thinking that you can do it yourself without fuss. Moving home isn’t easy. And shifting home all the way from Mumbai to Pune isn’t as easy as you might think.

Once you’ve made up your mind to move, here are 3 things you might want to consider.

1. How will you move your household items?

The best bet is to hire packers and movers. But if you do make up your mind to move on your own, how are you going to do it? How are you going to pack all your belongings? How will you transport all your stuff? Who will help you with loading and unloading?

2. How will you travel?


Figuring out how to move your household items is only one problem solved. How do you plan to travel? Will you drive from Mumbai to Pune? If you aren’t too keen on doing that, you can also take a bus or a train.

3. Where are you going to stay?

Have you looked for a house for the family? If you are moving with kids, you’ll need to find a school for them, too.

When moving to a new city, the ‘move’ is only half the story. Settling into the new city properly is what’s equally important. If you hire packers and movers for Pune, you’ll have one less thing to worry about.

Although Mumbai and Pune are in situated very close to each other, the lifestyle and culture of the two cities is different in a lot of ways.
