International Moving Costs for South Africa

Pinnacle offer competitive pricing for international removals to South Africa. The cost of moving to South Africa will depend on the method of transportation you choose and the size of your shipment. At Pinnacle Removals, we offer a number of moving options for South Africa. If you are looking for ways to save money when moving, talk to your move coordinator about full and part loads to South Africa to see what would be the best option for your budget.

Additionally, the amount of time it takes to move to South Africa and the international shipping costs of moving to South Africa will be affected by whether you choose air freight to South Africa or sea freight to South Africa. The cost of shipping items to South Africa will be affected by the volume and scope of belongings you choose to transport and whether you would need any specialist shipping services to transport items such as antiques internationally.

Full or Part Load Removals to South Africa

Our small loads, also known as shared loads or groupage to South Africa are ideal if you only have a few boxes to transport. Shared loads to South Africa can be ideal for international moves as the long distance often means that movers choose to limit the quantity of personal belongings they choose to transport overseas. By choosing part load shipping, your belongings will be combined with other households in a high capacity container to save time and reduce transport costs.

With our international freight service options, you can choose from full or part load removals to South Africa. We offer competitive pricing for large and small removals so whether you’re planning a full house removal to South Africa or you just need to send a few boxes, our full and partial load moving service will be right for you.

Do you have a few boxes?

Or can you fill a container? 

Alternatively, Pinnacle Removals also offers full-load moves to South Africa. These can be ideal if you are moving to South Africa permanently and would like a full house removal to South Africa. Also known as FCL shipping, this is the more costly method of moving but allows for more space to transport all of your household possessions. A full 20 ft container is usually enough for a typical 2-bed home.

Air Freight
Sea Freight

The fastest way to transport household belongings to South Africa is by air freight. If you have a specific date you will need your household goods by or are looking for a fast turnaround time for your move to South Africa, choose air freight to South Africa.

However, as this is the fastest international removals service, it is also the most costly. If you are looking for a cheap way to ship items internationally, sea freight may be more cost-effective.

Our international sea freight services to South Africa are a popular choice for those looking for a cheaper way to move.

Removals to South Africa FAQ's

How Moving to South Africa Works

When preparing for your move to South Africa, our professional team can help you to prepare. Whether you are moving furniture to South Africa as part of a full house move or moving just a few boxes, we can help. If you are moving to South Africa, you will first need to apply for a temporary residence permit which will allow you to stay for longer than the 90-day limit for visitors to the country. This will allow you to live in South Africa for between three months and three years and it is essential that you apply for this before moving to South Africa to avoid any confusion or delays to your move. Once you’ve made an enquiry with us, your experienced Move Coordinator will discuss all relevant moving requirements with you and ensure you are aware of any South African customs requirements that might affect your move. We’ll also conduct a thorough moving survey to create your South Africa moving quote. This can be conducted through either a home visit moving quote or a video survey in order to assess and measure your belongings and advise on the costs of moving your belongings to South Africa from the UK. If you are aware of any specific access issues for your new home such as narrow or remote roads or other obstacles, it is best to mention this to your move advisor at this stage so they can plan accordingly. Additionally, some rural locations may be hard to access in South Africa, your move specialist may discuss move options depending on where and when you will be moving.
