Moving To Durban From The UK

Along with Cape Town and Johannesburg, the thriving city of Durban is one of the largest cities in South Africa. Not only that, but it’s also one of the most popular expat destinations in South Africa. Why? Because it has everything you’d expect from a city, alongside sun-kissed beaches and a subtropical climate. It’s often described as paradise by many who move there.

One of Durban’s most beautiful beach hotspots is the Golden Mile, which is the perfect location for surfers, families and just about everyone. The great thing about Durban’s beaches isn’t just the natural beauty, but also the proximity to the bustling city. The “subtropical city by the sea” provides the perfect work/life balance for UK expatriates.

Durban also has a lot more to offer than just beautiful sands, waves and city. It has attractions of a cultural and historical nature, great markets, shopping centres and an eclectic nightlife.

Removal Service to Durban

Once you’ve decided that the Durban way of life is the life for you, there’s a lot of decisions to make including the logistics of getting there. Luckily, Britannia Movers are experts in relocation to South Africa, helped by the fact that Durban is home to the largest and busiest shipping terminal in the whole of the African Continent (Durban Harbour).

Our top priority is always to make your move stress free. We’ll take care of everything, and ensure it’s all explained clearly throughout every step of the way. We start every move with a visit to your home, where we’ll evaluate how much stuff you need to take, any requirements for storage and whether you have any pets or vehicles to transport.

Moving to Durban


We can transport your possessions to Durban in a variety of ways. The first option is container shipments, which can take several weeks. However, if you need your possessions sooner, it is possible to have them transferred by air, but it’s important to note that this is a more costly option.

When it comes to shipping, we can either allocate your own 20ft or 40ft container or add your belongings to a shared container. Whichever method you choose, you can rest assured that your shipment will be expertly handled and in perfect condition when it reaches you in Durban.
