Bro you should be driving on the golden quadrilateral. Enjoy
@meples follow simple rule. Sleep early, Start early and Stop by dusk. I think an early morning start (4:00 AM) is always good. By 8:00 AM you would have completed almost 50% of your journey for the day (Say 350 KM out of 650-700 KM target for the day). The remaining whole day for you to leisurely take the remaining 350 KM. Enjoy your ride. Enjoy good home packed food to save your time and money.
@PradeepM : Can you please edit the above post for me. Please replace should BT would
My comments are as follows.
Banglore - Pune Route : Absolute bliss to drive. May encounter some traffic near Pune border.
Pune - Ahemadabad : Ensure that you reach Panvel before 7 AM (if possible, then even before that)by Expressway as the Mumbai traffic will start taking its toll afterwards. The time taken on the this stretch, Panvel to Ghodbunder Road Junction (Near Fountain hotel) will vary significantly depending on when you reach Panvel. After that, its a 6 lane highway till Vadodara. However, expect some moving traffic on this route compared to Bangalore - Pune. Vadodara to Ahd is a 4 lane expressway, straight as an arrow
Alternative: You can turn towards Godhra after Vadodara and go straight to Udaipur bypassing Ahd. Traffic is normally less on this route.
Ahd - Delhi : Expect some traffic on Ahd - Mehasana route. Some part of the road is without divider.
All the best.. Enjoy your ride..
Thanks to all for your suggestions and encouragement. However, I wasn't able to drive down to Delhi. The last few days in Bangalore were very hectic and our families were against the idea of driving down. So had to finally send it with Agarwal Packers. How was the experience? That calls for another lengthy post Overall, they delivered the car in one piece, but dirty and a little damaged. Would I suggest Agarwal Packers? NO. Their 'Live Tracking' thing is a scam and all throughout I had to call them and get updates. The car was driven roughly (obviously) as I had to replace the front strut mounts as soon as I got it (thanks to DRS Fiat Gurgaon who replaced it under warranty).
Anyway, Delhi has pleasantly surprised me as people are more well-behaved on the roads here than Bangalore Obviously the number of cars on the road is HUGE and the cops here are strict. And people use turn signals - the buses, the autowallas and bikers too.
Welcome to Delhi-NCR.
Sending a car through through movers packers is always a risky decision.
I remember my 800 was also damaged with prominent dent and scratches while moving it from Mumbai to Raipur.
All the best for Delhi innings @meples !
The Packers and Movers guys drove the car from Bangalore to Delhi?? Strange. If that's the case then you could have done it yourselves and saved the damages. Add to that the experience of a long distance drive would have soothed the hungry soul.
Thanks @Rama @pabhishek
@ghodlur the Agarwal guys drove my car in Bangalore from my residence to their warehouse for 170 kms. Which is what made me think of driving it down to Delhi myself in the first place
