There are two ways to send excess baggage to India from the UK. You can decipher the most appropriate transit method for you on four main factors – consignment size, urgency, budget and location.

Sending excess baggage to India via sea freight

Sea freight is perhaps the most affordable method for sending excess baggage to India. When you send excess baggage this way, you are only charged for the space your belongings take up in a shared shipping container. The only downside of sea freight is that it is a relatively slow transit method. Therefore, you’ll want to allow plenty of time for delivery.
Sea Freight Estimated Delivery Time: 8-14 weeks

Sending excess baggage to India via air freight

Air Freight is the most convenient and fastest method of sending excess baggage from the UK to India. Air freight costs are greater than sea as quotes are calculated on overall weight of the consignment. However, excess luggage will be with you in no time. There are a few options for when your goods arrive in India; each varying in cost and delivery time.
Air Freight Estimated Delivery Time: 5- 15 days
