Personal Effects & Household Goods by Ocean

Personal goods relate to a range of shipment from a single gift item to the entire unaccompanied baggage involved in a transfer of residence. Shiva Global Relocation (I) Pvt Ltd has developed a unique reputation for efficient, timely, and cost-effective solutions for moving personal goods. The following tips will assist you in ensuring a safe and trouble free Relocation of your goods to their desired location.
Following are some of the variables that determine the cost of ocean shipping:-
  • Place of origin and destination of the cargo to be shipped
  • Size of shipping - volume here plays a major and weights a minor role
  • Type of goods - for example, Piano, Marble or Glass Table, Large Statutes, Oil Painting, antique furniture, musical instrumental, Large LCD/Plasma all this require special handling and are subject to extra charges.

We provide two types of services to minimize your cost of shipping: 

LCL (Less than full container load)
  • The cost is based on volume (Cubic feet) in this service; we consolidate your shipment along with multiple customers in a 40-foot container and in result we pass savings to our customer.
  • If the total volume of your cargo is more than 700 cuft, than it might be breakeven to ship same in a 20' container or if you are in no rush and want to save some money, than the same can be consolidated in our own 40 foot container.
  • Charges for loading into a container are included in the price quoted for shipping.
  • Final shipping charges are based on the exterior dimensions of the box, carton, pallet or crate. Charges are based on the shipment being delivered to our freight station; a pick-up from any place can be arranged at an additional cost. If you are shipping loose cartons, especially 10/12 boxes. They should prefer palletized. Highly valued, furniture, bulky and fragile items can also be palletized in our warehouse with very nominal cost.
  • We also consider some Inland points as Port. These Inland points are far from the Sea Ports but since these points have Customs office for exports or imports, we consider them as Port. For example: Kanpur, Jaipur, Ludhiana, New Delhi, Hyderabad and Bangalore in India
  • In most of the cases, It is highly recommended to ship your goods via Sea as LCL, when
  • You have more than 500/600 lbs approx 35 cft/1 cbm
