How much does this cost?

Our service is totally FREE, you will be contacted by moving companies for your free quotes.

When should I start obtaining quotes?

We recommend obtaining quotes for moving to India 2-3 months before your target move date.

This should provide time to review your quotations, formally advise the shipping company you have selected and secure your preferred moving dates.

Also, this allows enough time to finalize your visa/travel/shipping documents and all the other formalities you have to contend with before your move.

How much tax do I need to pay?

All NEW items arriving in India will incur import duties (invoice must be supplied). This is an indication  to which customs duties are applied at approximately 15% for new items. Consult your mover with specifics to importing used items in the manner of avoiding import taxes in India.

FAQ for Shipping to India

What is the cost of moving to India from Dubai?

The cost of relocating from Dubai to India depends on a number of factors. 

The most important factor is the volume of furniture you are moving. The more furniture you move, the higher cost. 

Secondly is the Mode of shipping you choose. 

You can choose to move your items in your own shipping container, or if you’re moving only a few items and only a small amount of furniture you could choose a shared container.


Shipping times to India?

When estimating how long shipping to India from Dubai takes, we have to consider the mode the goods would be travelling in. Air is the quickest and Sea is the slowest. 

Approximate transit times

Air Shipment – (3 – 4 Days)
Sole Container by Sea – (10 – 14 Days)
Part Container by Sea – (20 – 30 Days)

Another consideration when estimating time-frame is processing the shipment and customs clearance in Dubai and in India. We would allow up to 1 week at both ends. (Airfreight should take a couple of days at both ends).
