A lot of freight companies apply a one-size-fits-all method for their services of freight from the UK to South Africa, but we know this won’t give our customers the best experience. At Anglo Pacific, we tailor all freight shipping to South Africa consignments to suit the specifications of each individual customer.

We have two main transport methods for our South Africa freight shipping and a bonus method to assist the process; sea freight, air freight and road freight.

Sea Freight UK to South Africa

If you want to send goods to South Africa on a budget, sea freight shipping is a great option. It has the most economical freight costs to South Africa and is therefore highly popular among our customers. Your items are packed into moving boxes and then we determine if sole-use or dedicated container shipping to South Africa is most beneficial based on the number of boxes.

Sea freight to South Africa from the UK in a shared shipping container means your goods are loaded into a shipping container, alongside the boxes of other Anglo Pacific customers. You are only charged based on the space your boxes consume within the container; ideal for customers seeking cheap freight to South Africa.

Sole-use sea freight to South Africa is favourable for large home loads or car shipping to South Africa. You are allocated a 20ft or 40ft shipping container and charged one flat rate for the dedicated use of this shipping container.

Air Freight to South Africa

If you need your consignment to arrive in South Africa urgently, or if you only send one or two moving boxes, air freight from the UK to South Africa is effective. The average time of air freight delivery to South Africa is 7 to 10 days, in contrast to the average 6 to 8 weeks for sea freight. However, this speedy service comes with much higher freight charges to South Africa.

Air freight to South Africa costs are calculated based on the weight of your bags, boxes and suitcases, and so this option is only used when minimal amounts of luggage are being sent or in emergency circumstances.

Road Freight Services

Road freight is a bonus option when sending freight to South Africa. Road freight is often the sole method of transport for the UK to UK deliveries, but it does make a great accompaniment alongside air and sea freight deliveries to South Africa.

If you live a fair distance from our delivery ports in South Africa, we use road freight to deliver the consignment directly to your door. It can often speed up delivery times as well as help to keep our freight costs to South Africa as economical as possible.

Moving to South Africa is already a big undertaking, so you don’t want to have to focus too much on shipping freight to South Africa. Luckily, our experts at Anglo Pacific take the reins from the start and handle all of the hard graft.

Our freight from the UK to South Africa services was designed with your best interests at heart, which is why we provide a transparent all-inclusive quote, meaning you don’t have to worry about the financial aggravation of hidden costs down the line.

  • Sturdy tea cartons and packing materials to protect your belongings on their way to South Africa
  • Expert movers and packers will pack your items and create a full inventory
