Moving can be hard work at the best of times. Even harder if it’s across the country. You have to worry about packing, safe transport, time-scales, unloading and everything else that’s involved in a move.

So why not entrust your belongings to a company with 80 years of experience in removal services? A company that’s helped thousands move across the country without a hitch.
When you are deciding to moving a long distance across South-Africa, whether it’s for a work, or to be closer to family, or simply to take on a new challenge, there’s more to consider when moving long distance than with a regular move. That said, there are many things you can do to make the big move as stress-free as possible.



If you’re moving long distances, it’s best to pick a removals company that has the working force to assist you at your old and new address. Their local awareness will ensure the best traffic routes are taken and the team will be able to handle any unexpected circumstances quickly and efficiently.



You'll need to plan your journey in such a way that you will meet your movers at your new home at the right time. Make sure to plan out your journey well in advance, and plan for rest stops. The AA recommends taking a 15-minute break every two hours, and not driving more than 8 hours in a day. You might need to plan an overnight stay, so book your hotel or guest house in advance.
Remember to pack your belongings in clearly marked boxes, so you don’t have to dig through boxes to find the necessities, once you arrive at your new destination.
