South Africa visa information
Before you book your removal to South Africa, you need to make sure your residence and work visas are in place. To move permanently to South Africa and to get a visa, you will need to fall into one of the applicable groupings that the South African government has determined.
This information should not be considered emigration advice, and visa information can and does change. For professional advice and the most up-to-date information, we suggest you contact a qualified migration specialist or the South Africa Department of Home Affairs.

Treated our goods with the utmost care and respect
No room for improvement in my experience.
Why did you use us? They could meet our requirements on the dates we needed at an acceptable price
Do you have any additional comments or concerns regarding any portion of the service you received?
From the minute Catherine answered the phone to deal with my query, Darren conducted the FaceTime survey of
the considerable amount of items that needed moving and gave us a quote for the job, Clive, Lee, Ant and Rob did
our packing then, joined by Paul and Alan on day two to effect the move, unloaded everything, we did not have one
anxious moment during what can be a stressful experience. Everyone, especially the six involved in the move, was
unfailingly polite, could not have been more helpful and treated our goods with the utmost care and respect.
Hopefully, the supply of tea, coffee and carbonated beverages on day two, were some sort of recompense for a job
well done. In short, Top Job, boys and a BIG thank you is due. Looking ahead, if we move again, hopefully not
anytime soon, we'd have no hesitation is using this company again.
Catherine, the lady who took the initial enquiry call, could not have been more helpful and inspired confidence in your company.Adrian MilledgeStafford
