We often need to send Mobiles and other electrinucs stuffs through courier to our friends and relatives. Most courier companies do not allow sending Mobile phones. Bluedart used to do that, but after the reecent bomb blasts in Mumbai, even they have stopped accepting Mobiles. So, what are the options left with us?

Presently, GATI allow sending cellphones, costs about 275 rupees for national delivery + about rupees 150 towards insurance, which is optional. Do you guys know of other providers allowing electronics, specifically Mobile phones? Also, please mention the price bracket if you know.


PS: I tried to search for a similar thread but didnot find any dedicated one. Sorry if this is just a repeat.

Indian cutoms is wierd. SOme times may charge customs some times do not. Depends on declaration and cost of goods. As per rule, courier packages, even if commercial, attracts 50% customs. For laptops, Its better some one brings it for you.

Hi
I need to send Mogul 6800 from Mumbai to Lucknow but neither DHL nor Blue Dart is ready to take it.
I tried telling them that its GPS Device but they say they will check and pack that themself so again wont accept.
Can anyone guide me best way to send it??
