REMOVALS FROM SOUTH AFRICA TO THE UK TRANSIT MODES
There are two main transit modes when using our South Africa removals service and the best method for you can be determined by three key factors – your budget, end location and urgency.
The most economical way to send international removals from South Africa to the UK is via sea freight, however it is much slower than air freight, therefore we highly reccommend you allow sufficient time for your removals to arrive.
Two options when using sea freight are:
- Less Container Load: LCL is the best sea freight method if you are shipping a small apartment, a one bedroom flat, a small office or if you just need to move a number of large furniture items from your house. Goods are stowed, secured and shipped in a shared container and you are only required to pay for the space your possessions occupy.
- Full Container Load: FCL is recommended if you are moving whole home loads, large family homes or large work premises. You will be charged for and receive a 20ft or 40ft container depending on your removal to South Africa size. You can fill the container how you wish.
Approximate Sea Freight Transit Time: 8 -14 weeks
Although air freight is a more costly way to move goods from South Africa to the UK, it is a far quicker and more convenient. All Removals from South Africa to the UK costs are calculated on the total weight of your consignment when using air freight. It is best if you need to send a one bedroom apartment, minimal items of furniture, or just one or two specific rooms from your home or office, for example. Upon arrival of your removals, there are a few options each varying in cost and delivery time.
Approximate Air Freight Transit Times: 5 – 10 wording days
