Jaya Parab is a clearing, forwarding and shipping agent. He got the job done but we feel like it could have been faster. He was quite chaotic and not very informative of all the things that had to be done and how that was going to happen. If you ever have to ship to Mumbai and will use his services e-mail us and we will give you some tips and hints that will make your life a lot easier!
