Lifestyle

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.

Extremely polite, helpful and friendly

Removal crew were extremely polite, helpful and friendly. Bradshaws was recommended.

John Williams

The team on move day itself were exceptional

What a crew!  They were fantastic.  Dan oversaw all aspects of the 2 day move and kept me informed every step of the way.  Lorne helped Dan pack on Day 1, again he was very friendly and courteous.  The team on move day itself were exceptional.  It was a highly emotional day for myself, and they treated me (and my belongings) with the utmost respect. I couldn't have wished for a better team.  Please pass on my sincere thanks them.  They completely took the stress out of the day for me.

I was happy with the way my initial enquiry was dealt with by your company, and Britannia were always in the running, however you were my second choice.  I chose you ultimately because of your availability.  My first choice, who were better on price, were unavailable.  A third company, I discounted from the outset, as their knowledge and attitude did not meet my expectations.

Comments regarding your initial enquiry - Martin Lloyd was, helpful, knowledgeable and friendly.

Elaine Poxon

A great team

Just wanted to say how good Mark L, Richard and Andy were for our move on 22/04/2021. A great team. Hopefully we can have them when our furniture comes out of storage and we move into our new home. 

Paul Shackleton
