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.

They make every aspect of moving home less stressful

The crew were fantastic I couldn't recommend them highly enough, they make every aspect of moving home less stressful.

We had previously used and had a good experience with the company. 

Comments regarding your initial enquiry - We used you to move 3 years ago and Ernie was as helpful friendly and efficient as he was last time.

They even put our couch back together so our young kids had somewhere to sit

Ryan, Mike and the lads were fantastic. On the first day, three crew turned up and packed up the ground floor and a room upstairs in 2 hours. Due to the solicitors slowing down the completion, the lads had to hang on a bit longer but as the day was getting later two more guys joined the team giving us 6 people to unload the van and put it in to the correct rooms within the hour, they even put our couch back together so our young kids had somewhere to sit.

Couldn’t have done it without them though so I’m glad they had managed it so well on the day.

Comments regarding your initial enquiry - Ernie Humphries was straight to the point and extremely helpful in helping us to decide whether to pay for the packing service. Due to stamp duty ending, June had become a very intense and busy month so Ernie and Keeley were quick to help accommodate our needs. We couldn’t get two days together so they were able to pack on one day and load the van two days later.

Couldn't have been happier with their service

I just wanted to send a quick email to let you know how happy we have been by the exceptional service offered by Les, Paul and Adrian today. Their attention to detail and careful handling of our goods were extremely appreciated. We couldn't have been happier with their service!

As I have said before, the service we have been offered so far by Britannia Bradshaw has been excellent!

Thank you.
