International removals to India

If you have plans to relocate to India in the near future, it is highly recommended to ship the majority of your belongings rather than replace them locally. The cost of purchasing new items in India can be significantly higher, making shipping a cost-effective option.

Moving to India from the other side of the world involves a complex process, unlike relocating within the UK. However, with Simpsons, a specialist international removal company, you can have complete peace of mind knowing that your personal effects and furniture will be handled with care and expertise. By choosing our services, you not only ensure the safety of your belongings but also save money during your move to India.

The actual transit time for your removals to India will vary depending on whether you opt for air freight service or sea freight service. If you require quicker delivery of your household goods, our air freight service is the ideal choice. On the other hand, if cost-effectiveness is a priority and you are flexible with the arrival time, our sea freight service offers a more economical solution for transporting your belongings to India.

For further information, our International Moving specialists will be able to help with your needs when moving to India from the UK. As part of our India service, we will provide help with  India customs, documentation & questions surrounding your India removal

Whether you are looking to move to India for a new job, or to explore the world outside of the UK, Simpsons from start to finish will make international removals to India easy for your household goods.

India Removals FAQ Guide & Moving Checklist

Removal and Shipping Services for India

At Simpsons we offer a variety of overseas removal and shipping services to meet your needs. Do not worry if you are unsure about which is most suitable for you as our advisers will be happy to talk you through the different options.

Full Household Overseas Removal Service

For full household removal of a 3 or 4 bedroom house we would usually recommend a full shipping container for your sole use. These usually come in two sizes –20 and 40 ft.

We will pack the container at your house and it will be secured and customs sealed before heading off to the port.

Shared Container (Part Load) Overseas Removal Service

For smaller moves with furniture, boxes and other items, the most cost effective option is our shared container shipping service, sometimes called part load. In this case, we pack your belongings at your home and take them to one of our depots where they will be loaded into a shipping container with other customers belongings heading for the same part of India.

This is a cheap option for removals to India as the shipping costs are shared proportionally.

Box and Bag Shipping Service

For small moves to India we recommend our box and bag shipping service. This is the cheapest way to move your belongings to India. We provide you with export quality cartons / boxes and packing materials.

We then collect your packed boxes and transport them to India by air or sea freight depending on your preference and budget.

International removals to India from UK

How much do International removals to India from the UK cost?

The cost of removals to India obviously varies greatly depending on the quantity you are taking and where in India you are moving to. The good news is that, as so many people move from the UK to India, the cost of removals is surprisingly cheap.

The cheapest removals to India are by sea and costs per cubic feet decrease significantly as volume increases. You’ll certainly find that it is a lot cheaper to ship your furniture and other items than to replace them all when you arrive in India.

How long do removals to India from the UK take?

Removals to India usually take 6-8 weeks for our full container service.

Removals to India will take up to 8-12 weeks for our part load (groupage) service.

These shipping times are for delivery to port, you will need to allow additional time for customs clearance on arrival in India.

International Removal Insurance for your Move to India

We would recommend taking out Shipment Protection Cover for peace of mind whilst your belongings are on their journey.

Whilst we have expert packers who specialise in international removals and use accredited shipping lines who take special care of personal shipping containers, we cannot control every eventuality.

Just as you will likely have home contents insurance in the UK and travel insurance for your family, we recommend you discuss with your Move Manager the available options for protecting your belongings whist they are in transit.

Furniture removals UK to India

Moving furniture to India from the UK needs far more care and attention than for a domestic removal. Each item is carefully packed using export wrapping before being loaded into the shipping container.

You can take all kinds of furniture to India including sofas, chairs, tables, cupboards as well as white goods such as washing machines and fridge freezers.

As Indians drive on the left side of the road, it could be well worth your while taking your car with you to India – especially if it’s a new, luxury or classic model.

It is often cost effective to send your car in the same shipping container as your house removal so that everything arrives at the same time.

There are some import requirements you need to be aware of before you ship your car to India. We suggest you contact our team to discuss options and the shipping process.

Although Simpsons will take care of all the details they can for you, this convenient checklist will make preparing for the move as simple and worry free as possible.

Moving out: Before the removal men arrive, be clear in what they are contracted to do and what you are expected to do. If in doubt, ask the surveyor or a member of our staff. Ordinarily, both householder and the removal men have fairly defined responsibilities (though a measure of flexibility on both sides is of course desirable)

Children: Children, who are naturally curious and can easily get in the way, may potentially be injured. The younger ones are best left with a neighbour or friend until it is time to leave.

Swings/Climbing frames: Generally dismantling these is one job you will do yourself, but be careful not to lose the bolts. If you wish us to arrange dismantling please discuss this with our surveyor

Garage/Shed: Tie together garden tools, and prepare items to be lifted straight onto the vehicle.

Self assembly furniture: If you have any furniture of the home assembly type particularly if made of chipboard, please note that we recommend dismantling units before the move, as the joints are seldom strong enough to survive even careful handling if the furniture is moved whilst still assembled.

Washing machines: Secure your washing machine drum, and disconnect from water supply and electric.

Books: Books are very heavy, use our book cartons as they are smaller and easier to manage.

China & glass: Wrap each item individually in packing paper or bubble wrap, packing the heavier items first with lighter pieces on top. Remember that plates and dishes are packed vertically and not laid flat.

Moving in: Make sure that you (or some other responsible person) is on hand to admit the removal men. If no-one is there and a reasonable waiting time expires, you could find yourself landed with storage and re-delivery charges. Enquire how long the vehicle will wait should you be inadvertently delayed on the way. It can also save time and confusion if you stand at the entrance and specify the location of each item as it is carried in.

Helping the move along: If you follow the guidelines suggested on this page you will find the removal men themselves responding to your good sense with extra efficiency and relaxed good humour. You can also help the move along by remembering to pack the kettle last. A cup of tea all round is a gesture always much appreciated.

Tipping: There is, of course, no obligation to tip the men, but, as with all personal services, people like to reward extra attention, willing good humour or a job well done. If you feel that a reward has been earned, the driver or packer in charge will distribute any gratuity given amongst the crew.
