Moving Personal Effects to South Africa

Shipments of household goods and personal effects are allowed duty free entry, provided that they have been owned and used for at least 12 months prior to importation. To move your items to South Africa, you will need a customs clearance form and a packing list, Britannia can help you with the appropriate import documentation. You will also need a residence permit (permanent or temporary) and a work permit to move to South Africa.

Customs Clearance - It normally takes 7 to 10 days for customs clearance and delivery. The time taken to clear goods through customs can be affected by Government policy, X-raying of goods, physical inspection, volume of traffic and the levy of any import duties or taxes.

Packing & Delivery - Our removers can pack and wrap all your items to ensure that they are transported safely. If you choose a full door to door shipping service to South Africa, Britannia will deliver the goods to your new home. We can then unwrap your furniture and unpack your moving boxes onto a flat surface, and all used packing materials will be removed from the site.

Additional removal services – If you require additional removal services when moving to South Africa, Britannia is authorised to provide comprehensive insurance, and arrange international storage or pet transport.

South Africa removal transit times

Groupage or shared load consignments usually take eight to 12 weeks door to door. However, this can vary depending on volumes being shipped, customs or immigration delays and prevailing weather conditions. Sole use containers usually take 21 to 36 days port to port.

Bar Coding

All Groupage consignments will be bar coded before they are loaded into the shipping container. This will ensure that no items are left at origin.

Is there anything else you would like to tell us about your move?
We suffered many issues with the move from Bolton to Huddersfield with the sudden need to break the chain for completion dates on sale and purchase, late transfer of funds, late access to new house and the need to tranship everything to small vehicles due to access problems and both Lynne and the removal guys kept calm and got on with the job. Without their excellent attitude we would have really struggled!

Thanks to Lynne, John, Paul, Alan, Rob, Adrian, Chris and Adam for all your help!!!
