Hello Friends! I am relocating from London to Mumbai at the end of the month and was wondering if anyone could recommend a shipping company for my personal belongings. And an insurance company to cover the items I will be shipping. I will not be sending furniture,, it will be clothing, books etc. Thanks!!! Samantha
Expat Health Insurance
If you’re thinking about taking out private health insurance, our trusted partner Cigna Global is very aware of all the difficulties that expats can face when it comes to healthcare in a new location, so they have created a range of international health insurance plans specifically designed for expats, which you can tailor exactly to the needs and ensure access to quality care for you and your family.
Sirelo has a network of more than 500 international removal companies that can move your furniture and possessions to your new home. By filling in a form, you’ll get up to 5 quotes from recommended movers. This service is free of charge and will help you select an international moving company that suits your needs and budget.
We have a list of recommended relocation companies in India which might be worth checking out. Our section on Shipping and Removals in Mumbai gives an overview of what to expect throughout the relocation process.
I think you have to right idea about not taking furniture with you – you'll be able to save a lot of money that way. Regarding insurance, it's generally a good idea to insure the goods being shipped with a company separate from the company doing the actual shipping.
Best of luck with the move!
