Question

Hi Ram,

If your shipment is coming in to Mumbai, it would be the movers and packer's responsibility to clear the goods from customs and deliver it at your residence. I fail to understand how your mover is not involved in the clearing. From which port did you shipment leave?

What is your mover saying on this?

Raghu..that is not entirely correct. Goods shipped via air or sea need to be cleared thru Customs on arrival. Further based on the category (transfer of residence), etc...there are exemptions in customs duties or lower duty applicable...The easiest way to cope is to appoint a CHA to clear your goods. He may also arrange to deliver the goods once cleared.
Only companies like DHL provide door to door service. However even there you would need to comply with documentation and import requirements.
The list of CHA'S is extensive. Look for a well established firm like N.Jamnadas & Co (look up their website)
