This information is key in helping ensure a successful move from start to finish!

Virtual Survey

After the initial consultation, our customers can take advantage of our AI Estimating tool, Yembo.ai, to get a more accurate and faster international moving estimate.

Expert Packing for Moving to India

Today is the day – it's packing time! With most countries, Packed by Owner containers (PBO) are not allowed. In case your item is PBO and customs will not allow it, the resulting long and extra charges can be a dramatic headache.

Our years of experience in international moving have enabled us to develop an expert packing team. We use only the best packing materials and techniques to ensure your move is a success. Alligator Wrap, which is a branded wrap, replaces traditional moving blankets for extra support.

We also use sturdier international moving boxes for international packing that is better than local packing.

During the packing process we will also prepare an inventory that meets all import and export requirements. Our team of experts will handle all your items with care and pack them in a way that ensures their safety during overseas transport.

Customs Clearance When Moving to India

When moving to India, after your items are expertly packed, they will then be loaded and shipped using the most suitable method. Upon arrival at the port of India, our experienced professionals will navigate the complex regulations and requirements of customs clearance.

This process involves a number of documents and procedures that are required in order to ensure that items can be cleared for entry into the destination country.

We provide personalized support to clients during customs clearance, with assistance in completing paperwork and addressing any related concerns or questions. We are committed to ensuring a smooth transition for our clients, helping to minimize delays and guaranteeing on-time delivery of their belongings.

With our expertise in international moving protocols, we make sure that all items arrive safely and without any issues. Keywords: customs clearance India, international moving to India customs, overseas moving customs, international movers to India

Delivery to India

Once the items have cleared customs, they are delivered to your new home overseas. This process is handled by a trusted agent in the destination country. Delivery, sometimes referred to as destination service, is an optional service you can choose if you have selected door-to-door service.

You can opt to handle delivery yourself if you prefer. Debris removal is included in the service if it is on the same moving day - this is a free service that helps you keep your new home clean and tidy after the move.

Our delivery services ensure that you can focus on settling into your new home without worrying about the logistics of moving, as well as helping you stage your furniture however you like in a new home.

By using our international movers to India, we make sure that your transition to a new city abroad is smooth and stress-free.

Door to Port Moving to India

At Hercules Moving Company, we understand the importance and difficulty of international moving and provide door to port moving service to India.

What Clients say About Us

Private User

They did an excellent job moving the piano as they took extreme care not to damage the piano or anything else in the house. I will most likely use them during my next big move as up to now I've been doing most of the moving myself. Thank you.

Vivid Reflection

With short notice, Hercules Moving Company was able to book my piano moving during a time that worked well for me. Other companies I had looked into were not as flexible and were more expensive. They were very professional. I would definitely use Hercules Oshawa Moving Company again, and would absolutely recommend them.

Good job. Guys were very pleasant and fast. Everything was clear, no hidden fees. They met all my request.

This company is the best delivery services. Specially 2 strong man delivery the Piano U1 48" for me... Both young strong man very nice service. They are very care for the product they delivery. Great job and I will recommend these Montreal movers to all my friends or anyone ask me for delivery.

Donald Quan

I used Hercules for a non-piano move for the first time from their Storage Toronto. I expected only the best service from them as I’ve experienced how they treat Concert pianos and they delivered 100%. The time and cost they quoted was exactly what it took. They really know how to quote their services. No surprises....so rare in a moving company. They came over-prepared with blankets, stair coverings, wrappings, mega tape. They were not about to let anything happen to my valuable stuff. Best movers I’ve ever used.....they almost take moving to an art form.

Gentle Giant

We initially hire Hercules to move our piano, but after our bad experience with our previous mover we hire them for our 2nd move with our entire household content. They were efficient, helpful and most importantly stronger than over mover. They blanketed old furniture and disassembled and reassembled the furniture back in place. They were accommodating and had stair mats and cover on the floor so that we didn't have to do major clean up after the move. We really appreciated their patience in positioning our grand piano into the exact angle we needed in the room. I will recommend them. My elderly mother also hired them and they took care of her move as well. She really appreciated the hassle free experience.


Absolutely professional, details such as lift it up and not just tip it over. Well packing, cover floor during the placing, clean and tidy.

The movers showed up on time and ready to work, they were very efficient and professional. Would highly recommend to anyone.

Hercules is by far the most efficient, customer friendly and experienced movers I have dealt with. They took such good care of furniture and personal belongings and made a stressful move seem effortless. I would not hesitate to use these Ottawa movers again. For a five star, hassle free service, with great care and attention, I would recommend Hercules.

Very satisfied with the moving job. Work was done professionally and in a timely manner. Thanks to the professional North York movers who helped us move our piano in - 20 degree weather!

Hercules rescued my move when another Toronto movers cancelled on me days before the big day. They were professional and knew exactly how to protect all of my belongings during the move in terrible rain.

Thank you so much Hercules! I contacted them on a Friday, and Monday 8 guys showed up and put together everything I had in one day! This is not our first time using Hercules Moving, it's actually our third. They are kind, understanding and professional. Most importantly, they get the job done in an efficient manner. Thanks again from this repeat customer!

Stephanie Thorbahn Myles

Huge shoutout to the 4 men that moved our family this week. After working a long night before on another move these guys came and never stopped. Everything that was not in boxes they wrapped in furniture pads, plastic wrap and packing tape. They later pads all over our new hardwood floors and put all the furniture back together. Great pricing. Thank you Hercules!

You guys were totally amzing, I had hired two other piano movers prior and both companies had difficulties moving the piano. But your crew had no difficulties. They were very carful, fast clean and so nice to talk too. I did post pictures on Face Book and people wanted your number from me. I will highly recommend you GREAT JOB.Thank You


I cannot even begin to describe how dedicated and experienced these movers are... They were life-savers on my moving day and truly believe in the highest level of performance.
