Some shipping companies to India offer a one-size-fits-all plan, but our experts know that this doesn’t work! We provide a completely unique experience to every customer when shipping to India from the UK, but we employ this policy across all of our services.

We have three shipping methods to use when shipping stuff to India; sea freight, air freight and road freight. Each method – or a combination of – is beneficial to different customer requirements.

Sea Freight

If you are looking for cheap shipping to India, sea freight is your go-to option! Sea freight’s economic costs make it the most popular method of transport among our customers. Your items are arranged onto a shared or sole-use shipping container, which is loaded onto our cargo ship to India for delivery.

Sea freight is the slowest of our transport methods and you can expect your items to arrive within weeks for the UK to India shipping. For example, the average delivery time for air freight is 7 to 10 days, in contrast to the estimated 6 to 8 weeks for sea freight, but this is reflected in the bargain cost of shipping to India.

Air Freight

Air freight to India is the most expensive of our transport methods; however, it is the quickest and sometimes the most convenient way to send goods to India. We pack your possessions onto a commercial air carrier ready for take-off to your chosen airport in India. Air freight is the best transportation to India method if you need your items sending in a hurry as your consignment will reach you in a matter of days. This timeliness does come with a much higher price tag than shipping to India using sea freight.

Road Freight

Road freight is our bonus method that cannot be used alone except for UK deliveries. Road freight is an accompaniment service for our sea and air freight deliveries. It is frequently used when a customer lives far away from our UK port or depots, or when customers require home delivery of their cargo in India.

Our services for shipping items to India are adjusted to suit your budget and time-frame, but there are three principal factors that will influence your overall shipping costs to India from the UK; load size, transport method and end destination in India.

If you are looking for cheap shipping to India, sea freight is the recommended method as shipping costs from the UK to India are primarily estimated based on the dimensions of your load.

By assessing your load via our online home survey, we can determine if you require LCL or FCL container shipping to India. If you choose Less Container Load, your items are loaded onto a shared shipping container alongside other Anglo Pacific customers’ and you will only be charged for space your goods consume within this container.

Alternatively, it might be more advantageous for you to use Full Container Load, this is the assignment of a 20ft or 40ft container for your sole use and you will be charged a set rate based on which size shipping container you use. This is advantageous for very large loads, such as office removals, a whole home load and car shipping to India.

If you send to India using air freight, expect to pay considerably more for this service as the bulk of your India shipping costs are calculated based on the WEIGHT of your items. With this being said, air freight is usually only used when a customer needs their items urgently and it is a small load, a box or two, or a suitcase, for example.

Another contributing factor to the cost of shipping to India is the distance that your goods are travelling and how they are delivered upon arrival in India.

Shipping parcels, suitcases and household goods to India is already a stressful process and we don’t want to aggravate this by sneaking in any extra costs.

As an advanced international shipping company to India, we have our customer’s best interests at heart, which is why we include all of the costs in our transparent and detailed quotes, ensuring you know exactly how much you are paying, what you are paying for, and the service you should receive when you choose Anglo to ship to India:

  • Industry standard tea cartons, moving boxes and packing materials to protect your items
  • Movers and packers to arrive at your home, pack your belongings and create an inventory
  • We load your possessions onto our vans and haul to our shipping containers or freight plane
  • Send your items to India using the agreed shipping method
  • We organise India customs clearances and assist with completing any documentation
  • Your goods are delivered directly to your home, hotel or office in India
  • Anglo can also assist with unpacking your items and disposing of any used packing materials
