Prior to Removal:
It is understandable that you may not have a set removal date immediately. We recommend a four week notice period prior to removal. However, we appreciate that there are a number of contributing factors that may prevent you from giving this much notice. For this reason, we offer a provisional booking process, where we will allocate a crew for your removal on the provisional moving date you advise.
Items can be added/removed from your removals list prior to your removal day and the quotation will be adjusted accordingly. You can discuss any changes with your branch office.
No delivery address yet?
This is not a problem as all we will require are your contact details. The delivery address can be advised at a later date or as soon as possible following your arrival in South Africa.
The Day of your International Removals To Pinetown
On the day of your removal one of our experienced export packing teams will arrive at your residence, to start professionally packing the contents of your home. It is essential that any international removal is professionally export packed and wrapped using the correct packing materials. All items will be packed into export approved cartons and where necessary, furniture will be wrapped and protected using export approved blankets or custom made cartons.
Our export packing teams will always bring extra cartons and packing materials on your removal day, so if you are undecided over a particular item, please don’t worry. The crew will create an inventory listing all the items you are shipping, as each carton is filled.
When shipping your personal belongings to Pinetown the transit time between removal in the UK and arrival at your new home will be approximately 4-6 weeks for full container shipments. Part load shipments can take between 6-10 weeks and are dependent on how quickly a 20ft container can be filled.
