South Africa: An overview

South Africa is a country of contrasts and its diverse environment and pleasant climate make it an interesting and exciting place to live, but relocating there does bring its own challenges. Fortunately you can rest assured we will assist you at every stage from start to finish of your move, leaving you to enjoy everything this breathtaking country has to offer.

South African Customs and quarantine regulations

Your Move Manager will oversee your move throughout and be able to guide you through South Africa’s Customs and quarantine regulations as they apply to your individual circumstances.

What should I do with the things I can’t take?

There are some items you may not be permitted to import into South Africa, and there will probably be others you don’t need to take but would like to keep. The answer is to store them in our secure and well-maintained storage facilities, where you can access them at any time during working hours.

How long will it take to ship my possessions?

Expect a transit time of 6-8 weeks for a Full Container Load, while the cheaper shared container (Groupage) option will take around 10-12 weeks from door to door. Your Move Manager will supply a schedule covering the expected transit time for your particular move.
