I am from North of India and small town and we did not have many shipping services. But lately there are many opening. But I do not have any first hand experience from friends or family using them. About 10 Years ago, mother sent a small courier ( few clothes and one religious expensive jewelry with insurance and not recovered and blamed to US courier) and it was lost. I myself have sent rakhi etc many times and lost. Now, I want to get a suitcase full of clothes shipped. My parents checked many services. Some are suggesting 20K Rs and some under 10K which is surprising difference. ~No one talked about insurance ~ they said we will have to pay customs. ~ Some said (Expensive ones), we will have to fetch it from airport here. Cheaper one said, it will arrive at home. It is just bag full of new clothes, and indian traditional clothes. Any experiences.
