I would like to thank and give a shout out to a company that delivered superb service and above and beyond. If anyone is thinking of relocating or sending freight consignments between South Africa, Australia and the UK, please consider making use of their services. The company in question is "South African Removals", run by South Africans for South Africans. Look them up and you won't be sorry.

I just want to say ever since i started shipping with South African Removals, I have had total peace of mind. I have moved all over the world a good few times, but never had the excellent service I have received. Saying thank you is far from sufficient.

South African removals do not just go that extra to help you and get your effects safely to their final destination, they go all out whatever it takes them. South African Removals' members from the top to the bottom are professional in all aspects of your move, they are respectful & so helpful. To say I am impressed with all puts it mildly. If you wanting a stress free and professional move, you will definitely get it at South African Removals plus!!! Do not waste your time going to the rest, Use the Best, SA Removals.



Everything went well with the moving.  The container has been delivered and
we are happy with everything.

Thank you for your assistance and being patient with me when I have had my
panic moments.

I will recommend your company to any one I know who want to send goods to SA.

Once again thanks a lot.



Just to confirm safe delivery this am.  All as packed in Chelmsford and not a scratch, crack or dent!!  Many thanks to yourself and all involved - excellent trouble free service throughout.  Really nice people to do business with.

I would like to take the opportunity to thank both of you for your role in ensuring the safe delivery of my household items.

From the initial contact and advice, arranging boxes (and then some more boxes), the move on the day, to the communication on the Cape Town side and the clearing and delivery of the goods....anything could not have gone more smoothly.

Special mention to the move-team in London, who were very efficient, professional and friendly. It was a very wet day, but they came in, did the job and were gone in a flash, leaving us with more time to spend the last few hours in London. 

I have already recommended your company to others.

I think a warning to someone who may be considering using another company, is to make you consider the price you have to pay including all the "exclusions" in the fine print.

With SARemovals...all-inclusive really means just that.

Well done team!

Thank you again and God bless.

To Chris and the Team,

Thank you for making everything so stress-free and easy! I cannot recommend South African Removals strongly enough! From the first telephone conversation right through to accommodating us when our credit cards got blocked, the team was friendly, professional and efficient.

Thank you once again.

My items arrived this morning to much excited from me, and much bemusement from my 5 year old son to his Dad's reaction.

When I asked Terri, my sister, to look into getting my personal kists and other items shipped over I hoped things would run smoothly, and I would get my items safely and in a reasonable time - you guys have been absolutely brilliant - thank you.

From your excellent communication, advice, pick up procedures, packaging and delivery via customs you are a credit to your industry, you really are guys.

I will recommend you without hesitation - it is not often one can experience such outstanding service (proud to be a Saffa) - it is rare that a service company actually "does what it says on the tin".

My son has built his castle with the bubble wrap now , and has claimed the crate for what makes a great outside box for his garden toys and balls etc.

Sincere thanks again, very much appreciated.

Kind Regards - Cameron King


This message is to let you know that I received the consignment of my personal effects from England today in good order.

I would like to express my thanks to you for your excellent service.
It was all so easy.

Be assured that I will certainly recommend your services to anyone who I encounter who has the dilemma of how to get possession back to SA.

Just to remind you of who I am.  I was recommended your services by Leigh Bridges and I contacted you on 26 March and by 27th March you had delivered boxes to me in New Ash Green, Kent and by 28th March they had been collected.  I was told it would take 6 - 8 weeks for delivery in SA and so it was - 7 weeks to the day that I received them in Fairland, Johannesburg.
Thank You.  I am impressed.

Kind Regards -Kathryn Quesnell


Apologies for the delay in writing this letter. All of our stuff arrived from London last Monday and Rob and I agreed that a letter to you and your extended team was well due! Thank you so much for your very friendly and professional approach to all our needs! Despite the very trying time for you with the death of your mother, you still tended to our every whim. The goods were packed extraordinarily well, with not ONE item damaged! Not one glass broken or plate chipped - completely the opposite to our past experiences! The team who delivered our goods here were polite and hard working. I would recommend your company to anyone who is moving back from the UK. No hidden costs, a completely forthright quote and truly exceptional service. We can not thank you enough.

All the best -Rob and Ally Knight


Thank you so much for all your care and concern with this move. In our 26 (I think!) years of marriage we have moved about 20 times and this has, by far, been the most stress free and painless! This, I think, is down to you being super efficient and kind. Baie, baie dankie.

Kind Regards - Debbie


A very belated thank you for your professional services at SA Removals. All our goods have now been delivered in SA and I have started unpacking. And yes, I was the culprit who packed away her passport in the safe and packed it in the car!

You were certainly right about Charlotte at Advance Removals. She has been an absolute super star in her handling of our car and household shipment.
Using your services and dealing with your staff, both in the UK and in SA, has made the process much easier and less stressful than I imagined.

Best wishes - Sharon and Ken Robson


I just want to say ever since i started shipping with South African Removals,i have had a peace of mind.I must admit though i used to be so sceptical about shipping stuff as i have heard stories of people who have lost their belongings during shipping.

With South African Removals,you are like 100% guaranteed your stuff will arrive safely at the final destination.Your staff is very professional and always willing to help.I am always impressed and amazed at how quicky my stuff arrives in South Africa. i have shipped my boxes several times with South African Removals and on each occasion my boxes arrive at my doorstep (S.A) within a period of 4--5 weeks.

Keep up the excellent work.One of the best shipping companies.
Highly recommended - DR Martin Mbokazi


Goieday from a warm sunny blue sky South Africa.

Just a short note to say that we have received all our goods and car and thank you for all your help (and patience). I will highly recommend your services to everyone I meet and currently am signing your praises in SA - the only thing that was broken was a stem from a crystal glass (incredible!). Hope all is well yourside. -Kind Regards, Paul


Hi Chris, Just to say thank you! My stuff all arrived here on Tuesday! I was very surprised! It was so quick I wasn't expecting it for another couple of weeks. I'm still staying at my daughter's so most of it is stored in the garage, but the delivery guys were very efficient. So thank you again for a wonderful service & I will recommend you to any one looking for international removals. - Regards, Jackie Jones


Just wanted to drop you a line to say that eventually all our goods have now been cleared and delivered as of yesterday. The household stuff we got about 4 weeks ago but as we had imported our second vehicle 2 weeks to early we had to split the clearance and leave the car in customs until the 18th when we could legally import it. However, that said we have everything now and that helps you to settle when you have your own goods around you. We only had 2 small breakages and I would like to compliment you and your staff on their excellent packing and especially you for all your help over the period…even in the trying times !! I wish you all the best in your business and you deserve to continue doing well. I wish you all the best in your business and you deserve to continue doing well. - Kevin and Gail Murphy


"Baie Dankie Chris!!
Die volvo en al ons lol goed wat deur jou verskeep is met ons terug keer na SA het reeds veilig in Bloemfontein aangekom!! Jou hele span, almal ingesluit was deurentyd baie behulpsaam en alles het flot verloop.
We have had NO damage to anything at all!! (not even a glass broken)
I will recomend you to all my friends returning!
Thank you again!
King Regards -Willem Bosch


"Just to say thanks to your team for such an efficient and friendly removal of my household goods on Monday -  5 stars!" - Jennifer Guy


"I received confirmation from Panama over the weekend that the shipment had arrived safely, with every item intact.  So, many thanks to you and your team for everything" - Claire Noye


"Thank you so much for your excellent service in shipping my stuff to South Africa. Ever since I was introduced to South African Removals I've had peace of mind. I started using the company 2 or 3 years ago. I've introduced all my friends to your company in very few words like, sending UK to South Africa, by the South Africans, for South Africans, Makes us proud to remain South Africans. Thank you ever so much-now it's time for me to pack everything and say you're wonderful, keep up the good works." - Joyce Allie


"Dear Charlotte and Chris may I just thank you again for all the trouble getting my parcel in South Africa. It's not the container size you are both working with on a daily basis, it's only a small box but it means the world to me! It's my daughter's first birthday present, a trailer for my bike, it fits 2 kids, it's the cutest thing ever! We will start cycling today! Thanks again, I will definitely recommend your business to anyone." - Yolande


"Thank you so much for organising our move of goods so well. I was amazed not one breakage" - Jacqui


"Just to say all our goods arrived, and we are busy unpacking.  Thank you to all involved!" - Suzanna 


"I would like to compliment your team for the service you provided to us in September 2009 that was the goods from UK to Durban in South Africa. We were surprised by the fact that we received them earlier than expected. The goods that were sent before these with another company, arrived a week after.

Please send our sincere thanks to a Gentleman who delivered these goods at home. When he arrived there was no one at home, but he waited patiently for us while we were trying to make our way through the heavy traffic. This gentleman was very friendly and professional.

Your service is excellent and I will recommend you to everyone. Keep up the good service.

Thank you very much" - Mr & Mrs Ndlovu 


"Thank you for the excellent service. My boxes arrived safely in SA and nothing is broken or damaged. I will certainly recommend you to other Saffas and I may have to call on you again in the future as I will have to ship stuff over towards the end of next year again." - Jacqueline


"Well I just wanted to say a huge THANK YOU for all your help and support during the move. The shipping from beginning to end only took 4 weeks. I couldn't believe it. Everything was fine and in order." - Kay Harvey


"After searching on the internet for a long time, we decided to use the services of South African Removals. We are very pleased to say we absolutely made the right choice.
Our goods were shipped in a very good time and everything arrived safely door to door in Mossel Bay, South Africa.

The communication was excellent and we were always made aware of what is happening and what was expected from us. The staff were absolutely amazing.

The whole process was a first for us and we thought it will be a daunting experience sending our goods that we have worked so hard for over the waters to our home country. At no point did we have any doubt that our goods were in good hands.

A big thank you to a very professional team! Chris you made it hassle free for us.

What a great team." -Ashwyn Dercksen
