South Africa is a colourful country with an open, multi-cultural society, combining many ethnic groups. With a competitive global economy, South Africa is currently classed as a developing, middle-income country, with great potential for future growth. It offers stunning scenery and a variety of lifestyles to suit a broad range of preferences.
Situated at the southern tip of Africa, between the Atlantic and Indian Oceans, South Africa is an ethnically, culturally and linguistically diverse country that also offers a amazing and varied landscapes. There are eleven official languages recognised in the South Africa constitution, including Afrikaans, English, Sotho and Swazi.
South Africa is also characterised by a high level of ethnic diversity. Almost 80% of the country is of African ancestry, from different ethnic groups, and South Africa also contains the largest European and Asian communities on the continent. The general quality of life in South Africa is not as high as in Europe or the USA; crime is high in certain areas and education standards can be poor in certain schools. There are fully developed areas such as Cape Town or Durban, and a good quality of life is certainly attainable. The amazing diversity of South African culture, wildlife and the scenery ranging from deserts to lush forests, along with relatively low living costs make it a very attractive destination. There is tremendous potential for future growth, and if you are planning to settle down permanently you can certainly enjoy a great lifestyle.

My family and I have used Britannia several times and have always received a good service. Very flexible, given my lack of availability for an assessment and the short time-frame. [Removal men were] Mike Preston and Chris Heyworth - really friendly and helpful
The move day experience far exceeded our expectations. Considering moving house is meant to be one of the most stressful things you can do, we were relaxed for the whole two days with plenty of time to make a cuppa! We had every confidence in the removals crew. Jay and his team were professional, helpful and kept us organised without being obtrusive. I would have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone.
Amazing service from Britannia Bradshaw I'll definitely recommend you to friends and family. Thank you for making what can be a very stressful day go so smoothly. For me everything was great can't think of anything to improve. Ben and James were very friendly, polite and helpful - amazing service
Absolutely fantastic, could not have asked for better! Very caring as I was a wreck! Giovanni and Amrick.
The service provided was excellent, efficient and nothing was too much trouble. The removals crew (Andy J, Andy L, Cookie & Presto) were absolutely brilliant, everything moved and reconstructed quickly and efficiently, and importantly, without a single scratch, scrape or breakage.
You can't [improve the service]. The lads removing were brilliant. I very rarely meet such good service. Billy and the lads were all really helpful, friendly and courteous. The move was delayed and they had to stay late, on a Friday evening and not one of them complained. I couldn't speak highly enough of them.
Out of a number of similar companies I contacted, the person who answered the phone was by far the most warm, polite and helpful. Although it was one of the most reasonably-priced quotes we had, the main reason for choosing Britannia Bradshaw was that from the very first phone call, we had the sense we could trust your company. When it comes to having your possessions shipped overseas, that trust is more important than small differences in price.
We contacted Britainnia Bradshaw several times before being visited for a quote. Each time, staff were kind and helpful, going out of their way to be helpful and reassuring. They were a main reason we chose to go with Brittania Bradshaw. They were fantastic. It took four people working a very long day to get us packed, moved and unpacked. Even in the final hour, they were hard-working, kind to our children and incredibly professional. Great service, a competitive quote and willing to work with our tight timeframe for a move.
