Hi Sam,

Can you find out if they will fly an Accord 2005 model down. Also the issue is time not money. What is the point of flying it down at 3 times when i can truck it in 4 days.

Better still if you like can you ask him to call me.

Why dont you consider the railways too? Will be way faster than road, and much cheaper than air freight.

Hi,

Thanks a lot guys am currently speaking with both Blue Dart & DHL for the same. Air India & Jet said not possible. These are the 2 companies who have their own cargo planes.

@ Rush - Have sent someone to the Railways to inquire.

My main criteria is time and of course car to reach intact.

I have transported the Eyeballer Palio to many cities. it is never the trucking that takes time, from one city to another. I can assure you that any truck driver can get from Kashmir to Kanyakumari in 3 days (with time included for sleep).

It is the governmental paperwork, octroi naka waits, border controls and other factors that cause the delay.

Default Car transportation through Railways ?

Is there a option of transporting the car through railways. I'm planning to make a trip to North India (Kedar Nath, Badri Nath) and wanted to take my palio along. So, travelling from Bangalore to north is very difficult, as I'm teh only driver, so thought of transporting it to Delhi and travel from there.

I saw in Germany, the cars were transported through railways.

Any idea ?

Thanks in advance,

I think you should be able to transport it thru railways, but this will be a costly affair.
When i was in college i had seen trucks being transported to mumbai thru KONKAN railways

Not worth it Buddy !!! I know this as someone recently had their Esteem transported from Chennai to Chandigarh. What a mess !!!

If you are hesitant on driving it get some driver to drive you and then take it further.

Rail & Road transport will be both expensive.

Alternatively you can use the trucks that ferry new cars from North to south & vice versa. Ex: Maruti and Honda has lots of trucks coming in from NCR area to all parts of the country. These trucks in both directions of thier journey will take other cars for transport.

3 years back I got my car transported from Delhi to Hyderabad for 11K. All i had do is find one of the relocation companies and strike a deal with them.

Point to remember is bargain hard.

Default Mumbai to Delhi in Container

I believe you should try transport company, I got my car transferred from Mumbai to Delhi in a container two months back, took around 3 days, 5k.
To ensure that the car reaches safely, got it loaded on the truck myself (by going to their uploading terminal) and recieved the same in Delhi..

Its better that car comes in an enclosed and protected environment rather than running 1400kms.

Question Car transport from Mumbai to Hyderabad

Hello All,
My brother is shifting from Mumbai to Hyderabad and needs to move his Wagon R.
He has never done a long drive and doesnt want to try it now (single driver - my bhabhi cant drive).

So his options:
a) Transport by truck / container
b) Get a driver from Mumbai to tag along.

Has anyone tried these options in recent past?
If so, can you pls share any contact info and price details?

Quick replies needed as he needs to fix it up in next 2 weeks.
Thanks in advance.

First things 1st:BOM-HYD isnt really long,it would be easier driving than transporting it(tracking,waiting,packing,documentation etc)

If he does indeed want to transport it,Agarwal guys do a pretty good job with it.You could call them and they would come home and give you a quote for it.Would cost somewhere around 7-10k is my hunch.

I would still go with the driving part than getting it transported.Drive Bom-Pune to reach Pune by 4pm.Stay the night at Pune.

Leave Pune by 7am and he would be in Hyd latest by 4pm.

Thanks Ranjit for the reply.

I suggested similar option of night halt in Pune (2nd option of halt in Solapur). I personally would have loved the chance to drive down...
But somehow he is not interested in taking it this time.

Will advise him to contact Agarwals.

Would appreciate if anybody can give inputs based on their experience:
a) For transportation option... any particular precautions to take etc?

b) Alternatively can anybody suggest a good driver / driving agency that can arrange a driver for them (drop from mumbai to hyd in car - return ticket will be provided by bus / train)?

Thanks in advance...
