  • I hired Sothern Cargo for household relocation and the vehicle was stuck in between due to floods. The company took proper care of it and diverted the vehicle to alternate route. Though I received the things 2 days late, but everything was intact. Company officials kept me informed about the proceedings timely and helped incredibly. Great service, Cheers!

Thane – The City of Lakes

Thane, right next to the prosperous dream land called Mumbai, is so full of lakes at every part that it has been christened as The City of Lakes. Being right besides Mumbai, it is no farther away from development.

It has developed at a pace and is widely known now to be the destination of choice for NRIs due to its comparatively lower population and pollution, as compared to Mumbai. Thane has as many as 35 lakes and therefore provides for some much needed recreational spaces, without having to go far and wide hunting for it.
