We can get your goods to South Africa using both sea and air freight. Both methods have their benefits and we’ll work with you to decide which method is best for your move. Air freight is the quickest way to get your goods to South Africa but may be a little more costly, but it all depends on your budget. Sea freight can take a little longer than air freight, but it is a much more cost effective way to move your goods across the world.
Our experienced team will be able to discuss these transit methods in more detail and can provide you with free quotes for both options.
We’ve put together some top tips for moving to South Africa from the UK. We’ve included items you can and can’t take with you in your removals to South Africa as well as all the paperwork you’ll need.

Just because you are moving to South Africa it shouldn’t mean you have to sacrifice your personal possessions and household goods. In our many years as an established removal company to South Africa, we have mastered the art of shipping just about everything as part of our international removals to South Africa service.
South Africa, much like every country, has a list of restricted and prohibited items that you won’t be able to take with you, unfortunately. However, if South Africa allows it – we will ship it!
For a comprehensive list of items you can or cannot send as part of your removals from the UK to South Africa, get in touch with your move manager and they will be able to help.
Our international removals service to South Africa is tailored to accommodate a range of time frames and customer needs. Your goods can be sent via sea freight or air freight, although sea freight is more commonly used for large domestic removals.
When moving to South Africa, we would recommend sending your goods via sea freight as air freight is best for smaller volumes, as it is more costly. There are a number of container options you can choose from too, to ensure you get the best price for your budget. The cheapest option is to ship you goods via a shared container, but it is all dependent on the volume of goods you are moving.
If you are moving the contents of a larger property, then you may need to pay for an entire 20ft or 40ft container. You pay a flat rate for one container and can then fill it how you wish.
Your move manager will discuss all your options in further detail with you and together you will come up with a move plan tailored to your requirements.
As a committed team of international removal specialists, we always go the extra mile for our customers. Moving overseas can be a stressful undertaking to begin with, let alone with removals in tow, so our mission is to take charge of the process and make it as easy as possible for you.
