    Hello,

    Has anyone shipped anything from India to USA? Which service is the cheapest and the best? I know this is not the best time but I would like to order clothes from India.. I have talked to the store.. They said they can ship the clothes but it is expensive ... 3000 rupees for 2000 rupees items.. What is the best and easiest way to ship them? Which service do you use? I also need medication for family from India too.. So which service should I use? I realize due to covid getting things from India at the moment is not the best idea.. but the medication is a must and as I'm getting medication I would like to get clothes too.

    I depend on Garudavega Courier Services - Worldwide to get things from India but they don't combine medicines with other stuff. You have to book 2 separate parcels for clothes and medicines.

    My parents always send clothes via DHL. It is very quick and efficient but I don’t know what it costs.
    Medicines need proper documentation so they will need to go separately. I have received them via Indian speed post.

    Out of the various services available, i find Garuda vega international couriers the best. Their rates are very reasonable and you just have to hand over the items to them. They will themselves pack in boxes according to volume/weight and charge accordingly. For medicines, and some inadmissible items you have to give proof , like the invoice, doctor's prescription etc which will be billed separately by them. For sending clothes, no issue at all.

    yes, food items are also allowed - provided no liquid stuff. Even pickles are transported with proper sealing by us. @abc00 you can check their website , call them up and confirm home pick up. Not very sure, as we have been going to their nearest outlet and handing over. They have a lot of pick up centres. You can check the nearest too. Due to the covid situation, better to confirm over phone, any doubts.

    Yes Garuda Vega is very economical. More the weight better the prices . Now many online stores are offering world wide shipping too . I ordered recently some antique items and they got shipped from store directly and reached me in span of 4 days . They provided invoice for shipping . You can schedule pickup too . Only items prohibited are liquids , seeds and metals . You can check website for the list .

    Pothys offer free shipping for order over Rs.20,000 . Chennai silks , kumaran silks all of them offer international shipping . Tawa do you want iron type or non-stick ?

    Shipping & Customs Duty

    the above is also good but little expensive .
