India has been an extremely important trade partner for the United Kingdom for centuries. The Asian nation has the seventh-largest area of any country in the world and its 1.2 billion population creates the second-largest citizen-base in the world. This population are now getting more active online, often looking to purchase items from the UK, which has increased the numbers of parcels we see being sent.
With more trade being done with India by countries from all around the world, the transport infrastructure has improved hugely meaning shipping times to India have been reduced. Our international courier services provide great value for money.
Parcel Monkey have a hybrid service collected from your doorstep by Parcelforce, shipped out of the UK and delivered in India by DHL in 3-4 days called Air Express, and at almost half the price of DHL, many of our customers make use of this service.
DPD provide quick transit times from the UK to India as well, offering an Express delivery option which takes 2-4 days.
Not every parcel sent to India is urgent, for many customers a low cost is more important. Drop Off services are a little cheaper than booking a collected service and we provide drop off options with both DPD and Parcelforce.
If you would like the Indian Post Office to take care of the delivery, you should consider using TrakPak, a tracked mail service that uses postal networks to keep the cost of shipping down.
Many large or heavy parcels are sent to India using Parcel Monkey, as large boxes cost more to ship so rather than paying the expensive prices at the Post Office, you can pre-book online with Parcel Monkey, print off your labels and customs documents and choose a courier who suits your budget.
Royal Mail Price finder prices for a parcel that is 15kg and 30cm x 30cm x 30cm comes out at over £200, whereas you can book a premium courier service for just over £80 online with us.
We can courier parcels of almost any shape and size, just use our quote engine to get the cost and see how long it will take to arrive.
Mobile phones and the internet are having a massive impact in India so we do often see sim cards being shipped via courier to India, however, when sending mobile phones the battery should be removed or you should obtain the correct paperwork for sending batteries.
Take the time to review our Customs Advice
India has long been closely connected with the United Kingdom, making trade between the two nations important. Still, importing to India requires adherence to the country's rules and regulations.
Importation rules are administered by the Central Board of Excise and Customs which publishes the website found here: http://www.cbec.gov.in/cae1-english.htm. While their website is full of information, be prepared to dig a bit to determine exactly what items can and cannot be moved. As a member of the World Customs Organisation, the importation process is fairly quick and straightforward.
India prohibits specific items and products from entering the country. This list includes:
Some items do not require any additional import tax. For defective items are shipped to India for repair, there is no import duty required.
India also gives a pass to shipments that are for theatrical productions, filmmaking and mountaineering expeditions. Some engineering prototypes and commercial samples can also be sent without paying duty tax. Gifts remain exempt only if it is a personal shipment sent by regular post and the value does not go over INR 10,000.
We also have information regarding Burma, China and Bangladesh in the region.
Simple instructions and on time delivery at a reasonable price. Happy with the quality of tracking.
The comparison site worked well and got the labels printed and package dropped off. However, DPD took 7 days to deliver the parcel to the destination contrary to what they advertised!
