In order to ship your TV safely to India, it is essential that they are packaged appropriately to minimize any chances of damage. To ensure secure packaging, it is best to use the original retail box that your TV arrived in. However if you did not save the original packaging, you need to purchase a box specifically designed to accommodate televisions. Our packing experts at Universal Relocations can further assist you with finding the apt boxes and wooden craters.
Once your TV is packed appropriately, you may drop it off to any one of our warehouses located in New Jersey / Maryland / California / Texas / Georgia. Once shipped to India, you may then pick it up from any one of our warehouses located in Chennai / Bangalore / Hyderabad / Mumbai / Delhi
You may also opt to have your TV picked up and delivered to your residence at an additional charge.
