To move out of India, all you need to do is arrange for us to pack and
remove the goods. The documentation is straight forward and all the authorities
ask for is that you actually do travel. While the regulations allow you to ship your
goods before you leave, the complications in case you cancel your move
after the goods have left, can be interesting. The most practical way is to get the
goods shipped out immediately after you leave the country.
To meet this requirement we have modern storage facilities where your
goods can be kept for a few days. Less professional movers will
cope by moving the goods directly to the customs warehouse and let them lie
there until ready to ship. That's not such a good idea, at least in India.
If you have entered India under the Transfer of Residence scheme, you need to
stay in the country for at least one year. If you want to leave earlier, you will have to
refund the balance of the customs duties that you had saved under this scheme
when you entered India. If you don't take this precaution, you could find yourself
stopped at the airport !
Prohibited articles for export :

- If you live in Delhi, Mumbai, Calcutta, Chennai,
Pune, Bangalore or Hyderabad , we will carry out a free survey and estimate of
your shipping needs, so that an accurate cost can be given to you.
- If you live outside these cities, we will take a list of items from you and work with
that to give you the costs for the calculated volume/ weight. Any variation would be
charged or deducted proportionately.
Packing and removal : The packing dates should be booked at least two weeks
ahead.Once the dates are booked ,we will not ask you for a change of schedule (
unless you , yourself, want a change). Our packing crew with an English speaking
supervisor will bring the packing material to your home , pack the goods , prepare
an inventory list and move the goods out for despatch.
Documentation : The documents that you need to keep ready are :
- A copy of your passport - cover to cover, including the blank pages
(a customs requirement). This should be notarised by a public notary.
- A copy of your air - ticket , showing the sector of travel from India. All other
documentation will be provided by our supervisor - these are essentially
concerned with the customs clearance of your goods in India.
Insurance cover : While we take a lot of care in our packing, rough handeling at the port
and in transit result in occasional breakages. To address this we offer all risks insurance cover
thru two insurance companies. Both allow Claims to be settled in the destination
currency. Our excellent damage-free record with our insurance companies,
allows us to offer you transit insurance at very reasonable rates.
Transit Status : The transit status of your shipment will be placed on the tracking
page of our website , so that you can conveniently check the status whenever you
need to.Alternatively, you could send us an email and we will reply promptly.
