Things to Know Before Relocating to Hyderabad

There can be a multitude of reasons why one may need to move from one city to another, it can be due to better college opportunities or due to the hunt for a better job, or other reasons. Sometimes, one doesn’t have the choice of moving simply because their options are either rigidly limited or nonexistent due to certain important needs. But if one has the option, one can choose to move to Hyderabad. Just as the city of Lucknow is referred to as the “City of Nawabs,” the city of Hyderabad is popularly known as the “City of Nizams” another popular nickname is the “City of Pearls,” which I think sounds downright beautiful in a way.

The city of Hyderabad is fused with traditional and modern culture, like the cities of Lucknow and Delhi. It has mega malls and theatres in one sector. You can stroll a little bit and walk through a time warp; there are also narrow “galis” and small shops that sell “vada pavs,” “saris”, and spices of many kinds. And it doesn’t end there. Like the other cities mentioned above, this city has an easily identifiable landmark of its own, the ever-beautiful mosque known as Charminar.

Once you have decided to make a move, then the first thing one has to do is close all accounts in the city you are currently living in. It means paying off all debts, pending rent, and many other things one must wrap up. The next step is to give yourself a few months to plan logistics and other arrangements. You can always shift your furniture to a new place in Hyderabad, or you can have furniture on rent if it is temporary. Ideally, you should do all the moving by yourself to reduce the costs incurred during the move. If you cannot do the entire shifting by yourself, then go with a moving company that has a good reputation or is advised by someone you know very well.

The weather in Hyderabad is like a chameleon. It keeps changing regularly. The weather can be quite arid and hot in spring and summer, so you must purchase an AC for rent in Hyderabad to keep your cool. The winters can be manageable, with the highest going to 22 degrees Celsius and the lowest going down to 17 degrees Celsius. The rainfall in this city is moderate; you can expect around 80 to 90 cm of rain annually.

If you are fluent in Telugu, you will fit right in the city of Hyderabad, as the city’s official language is Telugu. Due to the high number of Muslims living in the city, Urdu is also a widely understood language. However, the Urdu spoken there is Dakini Urdu, which differs from the Urdu language spoken elsewhere. Of course, you don’t need to worry if you speak either, as English and Hindi are also spoken and understood here.

Suppose you are shifting to Hyderabad from Delhi or Lucknow, or Mumbai. In that case, you won’t have any problems figuring out the public transport system here, as this city has a highly organised transportation system. You can have your pick from cabs run by Ola or Uber, take the local trains run by the Indian Railways, or even the buses that the TSSRTC operates. You will have options galore in this city. Still, it is advised that you choose your mode of public transportation according to your convenience and budget and consider other factors such as the area of your home, workplace, and conveyance speed. So one must plan accordingly to reach any place on time.
