Moving to India from the USA

Relocating to India from the USA is a significant endeavor that demands thorough preparation and attention to detail. For a smooth overseas transition, it’s essential to engage a reputable international household mover with expertise in international relocations.

At SDC International Shipping, we specialize in facilitating the shipping of your household items to your new residence in India. Additionally, our team can assist you in navigating the necessary paperwork, including passports and visas, streamlining the relocation process for you.

Considering that homes in India are often smaller compared to those in the USA, it’s crucial to plan your belongings wisely. Our movers can help pack and transport your essential items while offering guidance on decluttering and discarding items that may not be practical to bring along. This strategic approach ensures a more efficient and stress-free moving experience.

Our Specialized Shipping Options 

Moving to India often entails selecting your most cherished possessions to bring along while making decisions about items to leave behind. This process may involve transporting delicate and sensitive items that require extra care. To ensure you receive the top-tier shipping service you deserve, SDC International Shipping currently provides the following specialized services.

Shared Container Service
Our shared container service is designed for small sea shipments. Your packages are sorted and placed in a container alongside other customers’ consignments. With this cost-effective option, you only pay for the space your parcel occupies within the container.

Exclusive Container Service
For bulk or larger shipments, our exclusive container service offers a dedicated container for all your items. While this option may come at a higher cost, the assurance of having your goods securely sealed and delivered in one go to your new home makes it a worthwhile investment in the long run.

Air Freight Service
If speed is a priority, our air freight service provides a swift solution for moving your belongings. Utilizing commercial or chartered planes, this service significantly reduces the delivery time for your valuable possessions, ensuring a prompt arrival at your destination.


International Vehicle Shipping Guidelines

When considering car shipping as an additional service for your relocation, it’s important to note the specific regulations involved, especially when importing a vehicle to India. Here are some key points to keep in mind:

  • Cars: Importing a vehicle to India comes with stringent regulations, including requirements for right-hand drive and adherence to Euro III environmental standards. Due to these criteria, importing a car to India may not always be feasible.

  • Motorcycles: Shipping a motorcycle to India is a more viable option, with the requirement that it has a speedometer displaying speed in kilometers. The preferred methods for shipping motorcycles are via a shipping container or Roll-On/Roll-Off (RORO) service. Motorcycles should be no older than three years and meet Euro II standards.

For personalized advice on shipping your vehicle, it’s advisable to consult with our shipping agent. They can provide tailored guidance based on the specific details of your auto shipment to ensure a smooth and compliant process.


How Much Does It Cost to Move to India?

When determining the cost of your move to India, several factors come into play within our international relocation service offerings. For instance, shipping a studio apartment in a shared container will typically be more cost-effective than opting for an exclusive container for your goods.

The overall cost of your move is influenced by factors such as the distance of the relocation, the origin point, and any additional services you may require.

For an accurate estimate tailored to your specific needs, we recommend filling out our online quote form or contacting us directly. Our team will provide you with detailed information on moving costs to India based on your unique requirements, ensuring transparency and clarity throughout the process.
