International Shipping to South Africa

At Excess International, we have been shipping personal effects overseas for over 30 years. Our international shipping services from the United Kingdom have seen everything from a box of shoes to whole households sent worldwide. Thanks to our experienced, dedicated staff and fast shipping service, we have grown to become one of the UK’s most trusted international shipping companies.


There are two ways to send unaccompanied baggage to South Africa from the UK. You can decipher the most appropriate transit method for you on four main factors – consignment size, urgency, budget and location.


We provide a complete door-to-door shipping service from the UK to South Africa, so you can deal with the more important things, such as getting to know your new neighbours, or finishing off your itinerary.

  • A move co-ordinator to answer and queries and ensure the process runs smoothly.
  • Fully trained team of packers and movers to pack your possessions using industry approved packing materials.
  • Items taken and loaded onto shipping containers then shipped to the end location.
