Moving to South Africa

Relocating is a big deal, and it can be even harder when you’re moving overseas. Moving to South Africa is another story entirely, and if you try to do it yourself, you could end up doing the wrong thing. That would start your life in South Africa on the wrong foot, and you’ll likely be stressed about it. That’s not what you want when you’re trying to settle down in a new country, potentially into a new job!

That’s why the relocation service from Allied Pickfords is so valuable for people moving overseas. We know what’s required for your move anywhere in the world, so you can focus on preparing your home for leaving, and we can organise everything else.

When you’re moving to South Africa, there’s a lot to get right when it comes to customs and visa requirements. Being held up at the border when you arrive isn’t going to make your entry into the country very pleasant. Instead of you trying to get it all organised, spending hours doing research for what’s required, let your Move Consultant get everything sorted for you.

What’s in store in South Africa?

There are a whopping 11 official languages in South Africa – most of them originating from Afrikaans or Dutch. Although English is still widely spoken (it’s the fifth most spoken language in the country), it might pay to get a grip on some of the basic words from the other languages as well. While Allied Pickfords is organising your move to South Africa, you can use your spare time to brush up on your Afrikaans!

South Africa is a diverse nation, full of culture and history. If you want to live somewhere with plenty of passion that’s always got something going on, South Africa could be the place for you.

Allied Pickfords have branches all over the country. We also have secure storage facilities available, so if you’re not going to arrive at the same time as your belongings, or you don’t have enough room to store everything at your first home, we can keep an eye on it until you have space.

For your move to South Africa, make sure you get in touch with Allied Pickfords on 0800 255 433.
