Moving to India from the USA
Relocation to India from the USA requires careful and extensive preparation. Since this is an overseas movement, you should find a reliable international household mover with extensive know-how about international relocation.
SDC International Shipping can arrange to ship your household items and deliver these to your new home in India. Also, we can guide you through processing the paperwork, such as passports and visas, to fast-track the relocation.
Are you wondering what to take with you? Typically, you will most likely move into a smaller home in India, which means you cannot bring all your personal belongings. So, it is best to sort things out, have our movers pack the essential ones, and discard the least important ones.

Moving to India involves bringing along the most valuable stuff with you and leaving the least behind. This could also include moving several sensitive items that must be handled with exceptional care. So, to provide the best shipping service you deserve, SDC International Shipping presently offers the services listed below.
Shared Container Service
The shared container service is intended for small shipments by sea. This involves sorting your packages and placing these in a container along with the other customers’ consignments. Due to this, you will only pay for the space your parcel occupies inside the container.
Exclusive Container Service
This is ideal for shipping bulk and larger packages. The service involves packing and placing all your stuff in a container exclusively assigned to you. Due to this, you must pay to ship the entire container. Although this can be an expensive option, the increase in payment will eventually pay off knowing that all your stuff will be delivered sealed and in one go in your new home.
Air Freight Service
An air freight service can be your best option if you want to move your belongings fast. Technically, the service uses a commercial or chartered plane to transport the packages. Thus, the delivery time of your prized possessions is reduced to half.
International Car Shipping
Car shipping should be considered an additional service for clients who decide to send their personal belongings with us. However, importing a vehicle to India may not be a viable option. Vehicles in India are required to fulfill a long list of regulations, including right-hand drive and conforming to Euro III environmental requirements.
Shipping a motorcycle to India is more straightforward, but it must be fitted with a speedometer indicating speed in kilometers. The best way to send a motorcycle will be a shipping container or RORO. Motorcycles must be no older than three years old and meet Euro II standards.
