Moving to South Africa from the UK

We strive to make moving to South Africa as straight forward as possible. When providing a tailored quote, Pickfords takes all aspects of your move into consideration. With a wide range of additional services such as pet shipping and international storage, we will ensure that your goods are not only successfully transported, but that everything passes through customs and is delivered to your doorstep. 

International shipping to South Africa

All of your goods will be professionally packed by our experienced team before being loaded directly onto a 20ft or 40ft container to be shipped. Pickfords provides full container loads (FCL) and shared loads; which could be more cost-effective if you are shipping a smaller amount of goods and can be flexible with your delivery date. For shared loads, your possessions will be packed on an agreed date and transported to our international warehouse. It will then be shipped to your new residence or unpacked by the team.

You can also choose to ship your goods by air, which is a faster method of transit.

We also offer secure storage of your possessions both in the UK and South Africa. Once you inform us that you are ready to accept your belongings, we will arrange these to be delivered directly to you at a convenient date.

Managing your international removals to South Africa.

With a national network of branches located throughout the UK, and offices in South Africa, Pickfords can move you to all major ports.

As part of our management service for international removals to South Africa, you will be assigned a moving manager to oversee the entire process. They will be on hand to offer advice regarding car shipping, quarantine inspections, transit times or anything else regarding your move.

If you are moving to South Africa and would like to discuss our tailored moving solutions, please get in touch or request a quote and a member of our team will be in touch as soon as possible.
