Removals from UK to South Africa


"We moved from UK to South Africa and I had a newborn (less than a month old) so I was stressed and nervous for the move. Wow, it was the most smooth process I could ever imagine... I can highly recommend PSS for their efficiency, professionalism and speediness!"


"The guys were efficient and friendly when they packed out boxes and it all arrived in perfect condition. Communication before pickup, during transit until the goods were taken over by the South African shipping agent was brilliant. Will def recommend to anyone who wants a seamless, efficient and value for money service."


"They made our move to South Africa, Cape Town so much less stressful. Everything from the first contact to the container leaving my front door was 5 star service! Thanks to the teams involved!"
