Moving To Johannesburg From The UK

Johannesburg (Joburg or Jozi) is a vibrant city at the heart of beautiful South Africa. In recent times it’s experienced a great deal of change, improving vastly for the better.

What the landlocked city lacks in beaches, it makes up for in surrounding natural beauty, with outdoor activities and safaris right on its doorstep. There are also many tourist attractions in Johannesburg, and it’s home to many South African celebrities.

Removal Service to Johannesburg

Moving to Johannesburg means you’ll be joining the 3 million people who call this diverse city home, and there’s a lot to think about before the big move. As experts in relocation to South Africa, we understand every step that needs to be completed before you can enjoy life in your new home. Britannia also have offices in Cape Town and Johannesburg, which are very convenient whether you’re moving out to South Africa or back home again.

A key consideration when moving to another country, aside form the required documentation, is the amount of possessions that are being moved. When you start thinking about everything you own, this can feel like a daunting task, but we’re here to take the stress out of moving.

At Britannia we always start the process with a visit to your house. This will help us understand the scale of the move, and ensure that we can explain your options clearly. Because we regularly assist with removals to Johannesburg, Cape Town, Durban and beyond, we understand everything that needs to happen to get your possessions to South Africa safely and legally.

Complete Removal Service to Johannesburg

We can provide a complete door-to-door removal service, which is typically the preferred choice for Johannesburg as, despite being the largest transport hub in South Africa, it doesn’t have a port.


Moving to Johannesburg

The options for shipping vary depending on how quickly you need your items to arrive. Container shipments are the most popular choice, with different sizes available. We can also arrange for your possessions to be added to a shared container which will take slightly longer to arrive, or transport them by air which is a much quicker method.

Additional Removal Services From Britannia

We can also help arrange moving pets and vehicles from country to country, so you don’t have to leave your beloved cat, dog or car in the UK.

We can also help with documentation, packing and any extra information you require, including recommendations for foreign currency exchange services.
