Living in South Africa

Africa’s most well-known and southernmost country, hence the name, is a very popular destination for expatriates – and for our Removals service. The culturally diverse and multilingual South Africa draws people from all over the globe to its excellent climate and African experience. SA provides a kind of “best of both worlds” lifestyle, as you can experience Africa whilst living quite well-off at the same time. Though there are some issues with the government of SA, they are moving forwards in many ways and with their great diversity, anyone can find somewhere to feel right at home; our Removals service will help you achieve that, too.

Rife with wildlife, mountains, and views more beautiful than one can imagine, SA is not to be missed. Expatriates who use our Removals service, such as retirees and budding professionals, can find good work in this country, whilst experiencing so many life-changing things. From real African safaris in Kruger National Park, to Table Mountain in the amazing Cape Town, or a bit of history from the Johannesburg Apartheid Museum or Robben Island in Cape Town – there really is something for everyone. Durban beach is not to be missed, and living in the ever-popular Jo’burg will be any migrant’s dream. Matched with a fairly low cost of living, is there really any reason not to move to South Africa? Especially when our Removals service is so cheap, too?

What are the international removals to South Africa costs?

Moving to South Africa doesn’t come cheap, so Movecorp aims to keep all overseas moving costs to South Africa as affordable as possible. Whether you are sending an apartment, a terraced house, a five-bed detached or an office, we have removals to South Africa options to suit all budgets and cargo.

Part-load allows you to ship freight cargo items to South Africa within a shared shipping container and you will only be charged for the space these goods occupy. This is the ideal choice for one-bed apartments and smaller homes. If you are shipping an entire office or a larger-sized home, you can pay for your own 20ft or 40ft shipping container cargo to fill how you wish.

Your end destination in South Africa will also be a contributing factor to the cost of overseas moving, but your dedicated move coordinator will provide you with an itemised quote before you agree to anything.

Removals to South Africa via Air Freight

If you need your belongings in South Africa in a hurry, airfreight is the quickest transit method to move your possessions internationally. Removals via air freight are highly convenient, but this does come with a higher price tag. Your quote for South Africa Removals is calculated based on the weight of your consignment, meaning it is not so economical for larger loads such as an entire home.

If you are only sending a one bedroom flat, some boxes of clothes or a few items of furniture to South Africa but you require them urgently, air freight is a convenient transport method. Many Movecorp customers will make use of our air freight to South Africa service cooperatively with another method of transportation. Such as sending a small number of items they need as a priority via air freight and everything else they can send via sea freight to cut costs.

Another factor that might influence the cost of your Removals to South Africa via air freight is what happens with your goods upon their arrival in South Africa. You can choose to collect your goods at the airport yourself, or you can request that diligent moving teams deliver your goods to the kerbside of your new home.

Removals to South Africa via Sea Freight

For Removals to South Africa, sea freight is one of the most favoured transport methods due to its cost-effectiveness and ease for our clients. Removals to South Africa via sea freight can sometimes be a slow process, therefore we advise that you allow ample time for your delivery.

Shared container load is the ideal Removals to South Africa choice if you have a small consignment such as a one bedroom flat, a studio apartment or a small office space. All of your goods and furnishings will be wrapped, packed and loaded onto a shared shipping container to South Africa and you will only pay for the space this baggage occupies.

Dedicated container load is the recommended South Africa Removals method if you are sending an entire home load or a large commercial office space. You will pay to receive the sole use of a 20ft or 40ft shipping container. A 20ft container will fit a three-bedroom home comfortably and 40ft is sufficient space if you want to send a vehicle amongst other goods.

Owing to our partnership with a number of global removals organisations, your goods will be delivered to the destination of your choice in South Africa, by a team of movers that are committed to delivering a premium service.
