our business is moving

We offer several options when it comes to transporting your goods. Our services are tailored to your needs.
Airfreight is generally the quickest option to transport selected items to your new destination. Sea freight is
more cost efficient when shipping more and larger items

Airfreight

Airfreight refers to the transportation of goods via an air-carrier. We can deliver the cargo straight to your front door, or to the closest international airport at your destination in a short amount of time. The quote will be based on the actual weight in kg’s and the dimensional weight of your cargo.
If you know the dimensions and weight of what you would need to be delivered, get your quote in under 30 seconds.

Seafreight

Our services get more specific when it comes to sea freight shipping. The options include shipping your personal belongings in a:

Groupage Container Less Than Container Load Full Container Load

Shared/Groupage container

This option allows you to share a container with our clients. You will only pay for the percentage of the container space you utilise and is more affordable than taking your own exclusive container. The container, however, will only be shipped once all the space has been filled.

Free storage services at our warehouses are included until we have sufficiently filled the rest of the container.

You can view where we are in terms of filling containers to the below listed countries and cities.

New Zealand, Europe, United Kingdom, Australia, East and West Coast of Canada., East and West Coast of the USA, and UAE.

LCL (Less than Container Load)

This method is used to ship cargo which is smaller in size and not large enough to fill a 20ft (6m) container. Your goods will still be loaded inside a 20ft/40ft container and transported the same way as with a groupage container, but in pallets or wooden crates (Liftvans) which are then stacked and shipped inside a shared container. Your lift van is then sent to our partnered freight consolidator who arranges for multiple small shipments to be bundled in the same container and shipped to a specific location.

You will be charged on the overall space you utilise inside the container per cubic meter (cbm). With LCL cargo, more handling costs are involved: pallets have to be loaded and unloaded more often, resulting in more handling charges.

It does however allow you to ship smaller goods in a shorter period of time because your cargo is handed over to a consolidator who then fills the rest of the container with goods from other companies, a lot faster than we can.

Exclusive FCL (Full Container Load)

Our options include the 20ft container, the 40ft container and the 40ft High Cube (HC) container. We will pack your goods in boxes, wrap furniture in bubble wrap and cushion craft, and load your cargo into what is known as a “Twenty-Footer”, which signifies the actual length of the container.

20ft container can fit approximately 1000 cu.ft (cubic feet)

A 40ft shipping container has the same designs as the 20ft container but is double the length and offerstwice as much space.

40ft container can fit 2000 cu.ft

The 40ft HC (High Cube) container is 12m in length, but it is approximately 40cm taller than the 40ft container and offers around 10-15% extra more spaceand can fit 2400 cu.ft extra household goods.

Motorcar Service Storage Service Insurance Service Pets Service

Motorcar Services

We are more than happy to provide you with a comprehensive car exportation service. Please keep in mind that the requirements to export a car differs from country to country.

Some countries require more than 50% in taxes and duties. It might happen that it’s not financially viable to ship your car to your new destination. Other countries, however, will grant you the right to import your car free of duties and taxes. So the easiest way forward would be to contact us with your queries and we will guide you through the process for the country in question.

Your car can either be loaded and shipped in its own 20ft (6m) container or it can be shipped together with your household goods in a 40ft (12m) container. Motor vehicles are strapped and tied down to ensure the car does not move around and get damaged during the transit.

Feel free to contact us for more information about shipping your motor vehicle to a specific country.

Storage Service

No storage fees are charged for groupage containers as they are only shipped once they have been completely filled.

We offer storage in transit as required. The cost depends on the volume being stored – and the storage period.

No storage is charged for “groupage” shipments as it is up to us to ensure that the containers are filled and dispatched timeously – charging for storage while you wait for us to fill a container would simply "not be right"!

Insurance Service

We offer both “Total Loss” as well as “All risks” insurance cover.

Total Loss cover is limited to a “disaster” – i.e. the ship has sunk, you never see your effects again! You can not insure individual items and will only be covered in the unlikely event of us not being able to locate your entire shipment.

All risks cover will insure you for any damages to individual items during transit, including negligence from our side. For All Risks cover we would require a comprehensive and valued inventory of the goods being shipped, indicating the replacement values at destination.

Pets Service

We can assist in the relocation of your pets by facilitating their shipping with various qualified animal travel companies throughout South Africa. Contact us to find out more.
