Expat Blog – Moving to the UK from South Africa

Can you let us know where you’re moving from and to, and why you’re making the move? Also, we’d love to hear about any personal experiences or stories you have about the moving process.

We are moving from South Africa and joining our family in England so that we have input into our grandchildren lives whilst they are still young and before they reach an age where grandparents are no longer cool. We are both over 70 years and we were offered accommodation and other support by our son and his family: who could resist?

We were satisfied with the packing and removal process but have yet to experience the delivery and unpacking process. We hope our goods will arrive intact, especially the folk harp which is to be crated for shipping.

Finding the ideal moving company can be a daunting task, and we understand the stress that comes with it. How did you manage to find the best mathcing one among the thousands?

We chose Biddulphs as they have a presence in Zimbabwe and we were considering moving some of our possessions from there for shipment to England. They also estimated a higher cubic meterage for our goods which we thought more realistic than the other two companies who.provided quotations. The company was founded in Zimbabwe and is well-established. Biddulphs was recommended by our son and daughter-in-law who had used their services on two occasions recently and were satisfied with their moves. Both their moves were within South Africa.
