Shipco is just approved by us for the second time this year..
Worldwide available...
Ask for LCL. seafreight by Shipco to your port..

TIPS.
Bargain is a must with agents..Easy if you love hockey.
Agree with your local port expenses when clearing customs in your country..
All oceanfreight containers between continents are collected in Singapure first.

Mumbai Teamglobal Logistics Pvt Ltd.
Times Square, A Wing, 7th Floor, Andheri - Kurla Road, Andheri (E), near Saki Naka,
IN, 400 059
Email : vivek@teamglobal.in
Tel : +91 22 6754 9800

Shipping company in Mumbai

Hey motokoerier,
A good relaible shipping Agent in Mumbai is Seco Shipping. You can call Mustafa on 09892117786. He's helped a couple of my friends last week to Ship their van back home and specializes in shipping overlander's vehicles. I and my family run a gas station called 'Karfule' a couple of minutes from Seco shipping. Do drop by and say hello if you're in the area and if you need any help bike-related or otherwise. My number is 9833924891.

1, Walchand Hirachand Marg, Ballard Estate, Fort, Mumbai, MH 400038

Sadikally Esoofally & Company - Mumbai - Custom Agents,Cargo & Shipping service provider.

Regards,
Daniel.

Hello
I regret to inform you all, that seco shipping turned out not so good afterall.
Very friendly people and very helpfull, but the crating of the bike turned out to be awfull.
It was more a basket than a crate. My AT was wrapped in a little bit of plastic foil. , the bike was fastened with Iron straps witch damaged the aluminium, the signallight was damaged, helmet stolen.
The shipping cost Mumbai to Rotterdam was about 500 eur
, but they forgot to mention that 600 eur had to be paid in Rotterdam.
Conclusion, stay with your bike and make sure the bike is crated well.
Inform about the price in the port of departure as in destination

SECO SHipping Sucks!

Sorry I saw this thread only late...

Please do not use SECO shipping.
Mutafa (the agent) is very charming and speaks a good english, they do know how to deal with the Carnet the Passage (bribing custom officers) but they have no clue on how to handle crating and shipping ..(lost key, panier dented, BIKE DRIVEN FOR 34 KM!!)

As we already posted on the shipping section of the forum, we strongly advise against them.

☆☆Read our experience from our blog.☆☆

Don't ship with seco shipping!

You will regret it forever!

If you need to ship -let's say- 1 ton of onions, ok go on with them.
But if you are going to ship a bike that you care of... DON'T SHIP WITH SECO SHIPPING!

Items stolen, damages and amateurish approach, this is what you will face. And at the higher rates!

But unfortunately it seems that my advice is not in time anymore, sorry! ::

I've shipped quite a bit of stuff out of India over the years and in my experience the mistake most people make is leaving the packing to the agent. ALWAYS oversee the packing of your items yourself, it isn't difficult or expensive, just time consuming.

Sadikally Esoofally = SECO shipping = cheaters

Yes: SECO shipping is the acronym of Sadikally Esoofally & Co. shipping company. The worst shipping I've ever deal with...

Stay out of the way of them!
