How long does shipping from India to UK take?Sending cargo to India has been made very easy and convenient for everyone willing to transport items to India these days. It is a testament to both the technology and the cargo business to adapt to those modern technologies and use them to reduce time and increase efficiency in sending cargo from one place to another.
A few decades back, it seemed impossible to deliver items to far flung areas and remote islands in a short time period. But, due to the advancements in tech, it has become very easy and convenient to send goods anywhere you want, and that too at a minimal time. Similarly, the ever-blossoming trade between the UK and India has also increased.
These days, people get a lot of options when choosing a cargo company to send their items and other goods to India. All options seem right but the people still struggle to find the best option for them. Well, we've got a solution for you if you're looking to send something to India.
Sending Cargo to India has two shipping means. We ship via both sea and air routes. So, our rates and time taken varies accordingly depending on the service you choose.
Time for Sea ShippingOur facility normally takes between three and a half to four months and other cargo via sea shipping as it is quite slow but more weight can be carried using this amenity.
Time for Airmail shippingOur airmail amenity is one of the fastest services for shipping cargo. Your cargo will be delivered to India from any part of the United Kingdom within two weeks. Cargo is usually distributed in ten to twelve days.
What is the difference between sending by air and sea?Sending Cargo to India gives you both options of sending either by sea or by air. If you want to send goods in bulk or heavy machinery, you should always choose sea cargo in that case because it might be slow but it is reliable and ocean freight shipping is recommended especially for heavy machinery items. If you want an urgent delivery and the size of your shipment is not too big, you should definitely choose an airmail amenity, which will not only deliver your parcel or other shipment quickly but will also do so at an affordable cost.
Cost of sending cargo to IndiaOur prices for cargo shipping vary according to the requirements of the customer. Our rates also vary according to the different services we offer to our clients. Charges vary for both sea and air cargo.
Sea courier priceFor our sea cargo amenities, we charge £3.50/kg for 30kg limit. The delivery is usually done in minimum 3-4 months. The time for delivery increases due to the custom checks, and no cargo amenity can do anything about that.
Airmail priceOur airmail service is very quick. That being said, it is a tad more expensive as compared to the sea cargo. But, for those who want a quick delivery, it is worth the hassle. We charge £5.00/kg for air services and your freight will be delivered in ten to twelve days.
Can we send TV from UK to India?Sending Cargo to India allows you to send TVs to India. We charge our normal per kg rates for this service too but as it is an electronic product of considerable worth, the Indian government charges a significant custom duty which amounts to about 60% of the total item value. So, that will hike the total price for sure.
Send other electronics to IndiaYou might be thinking this thing in your mind if you can send other electronics to India like TVs as well or not. Well, you can send all kinds of electronics to India but the appropriate custom duty as per 60% value of the product will be charged by the government upon the item's arrival in India.
