Relocation & Shipping for Expats in Mumbai

As a major economic, industrial, and trade hub with a modern infrastructure and excellent commercial links to the sea, road and air, getting your belongings to Mumbai doesn’t have to be a daunting process, particularly if you consider using the services of a reputable relocation company.

Key relocation & shipping tips you should know as an expat in Mumbai
  • Sea freight shipping is commonly used as it’s the most cost-effective option. On the other hand, airfreight is much quicker but higher in price.
  • Most expats prefer to send essential items via air freight and use sea freight to ship their other belongings.
  • If you’re planning to become a formal resident of India your personal and household goods may be imported duty-free, however, some exceptions apply. It’s best to discuss your situation with a relocation specialist.
  • If you wish to bring your pet to Mumbai, you should obtain a vet’s certificate, proof of certain vaccinations as well as have a microchip implanted to be able to transfer your pet.
  • It’s important to note that most accommodation in Mumbai come fully furnished and furniture is readily available locally. That said, you may not need to ship your furniture to Mumbai.
  • It’s recommended to invest in obtaining insurance to protect your belongings if you intend to ship valuable personal items.
  • A reputable shipping company will walk you through all relocation formalities, provide full relocation services while making sure that your belongings are safely transferred door-to-door with the highest standards.
