Things To Consider When Shipping To South Africa

Here's a brief rundown of items restricted and prohibited by South Africa customs. First of all, these are the items that may cause delays.

  • Medicine. Customers cannot bring more than three months-worth of medicine for personal use.
  • Food, plants, animals
  • Dairy products, butter, eggs, etc.
  • South African currency
  • Unprocessed gold, coins, stamp collections
  • Endangered species (leave them at home please)

And here's a list of items that are, to use the technical term, an absolute no-no:

  • Narcotics
  • Unlawful reproductions of any works
  • Automatic weapons
  • Explosives and fireworks
  • Cigarettes with a mass of more than 2kg per 1000
  • Toxic substances
  • Prison-made goods

Just to let you know, there's more, South Africa is covered by our excellent MoveCube® service. The MoveCube® is a large container inside a trailer which can move the contents of a two-bedroom flat. It's a very simple process whereby we drop the MoveCube® off at your door, you load it up with boxes and we return to collect it again to take to your chosen destination. Easy.
