Parcelling Gifts to India via Tajonline Services- What Not to Do

by Louise Martin Author

You may live countries away from your loved ones, but the love never dies. Neither does the desire to surprise them with a little something. The modern world has improved the gift-giving process to a point where distance only seldom causes a bother.

However, before you pack and send gifts to India, take a look at these common mistakes that could ruin your international delivery.

1. Don't Send an Illegal Item

You can’t send a toy helicopter with a remote control that runs on high radio bandwidth. Antiquities, exotic birds, wine, jewelry, watches, cigars, and many other items make up a list of things you can’t send to India.

Be smart. Procure the list of the articles prohibited for shipping to India. Then, choose a gift that doesn’t get security-jacked midway.

2. Pick an International Courier Service

If you decide on your local postal system, be it for cheaper rates or consistent service, keep in mind that international courier mailing is a different deal.

Try to choose a service that you can reach for most working hours, which allows you to track the package efficiently, and offers you a speedy delivery.

FedEx, Tajonline, DHL, and Toll are a few examples of worldwide couriers.

3. Figure out Your Taxes

There will be customs and duties/taxes involved in an international goods transport. Often, the recipient will be asked to pay an extra price to receive the package.

Be aware of these rules. Understand what excess charges your gifts qualify for and either put down your information for the payment or inform the recipient.

4. Take Good Care of the Documentation

You may feel that it's not a good idea to describe the contents of the parcel on its packaging. It would ruin the surprise, of course. But a clear description of the items, their prices, and any other detail can ensure safe passage for your gifts to India.

Try indicating that the package is a gift in the local language as well. And print brittle or fragile all over the parcel if there is a delicate item inside.

It may also be a helpful idea to read up on the requirements Indian customs demand for gifts packaging.

5. Flood the Package with Receiver's Information

Mention their mobile number, office phone number, email id, home address, and any other way of contact that can be used to reach the recipient.

At most places in India, the recipient has to collect the parcel in person and with an ID proof, like their passport. Detailed contacts will not only help reach them easily, but they'll also assist the package in passing security checks quickly.

Go Ahead Then- Pack up the Hamper

Comply with the rules. Be informative. Choose a proper courier service. These tips just made it easier for you to send gifts to India
