Baggage Services from Solaris

A full-blown removals package is sometimes not what is needed. Some people only need a few items. Perhaps you are doing a year’s placement overseas, perhaps you are renting a furnished flat, perhaps you want to furnish your new home with locally sourced items. Whatever your reason we can help. Our baggage services give you an economical way to ship items around the world. So, if you need a few things to send to your new home, or gifts to send home to your family, speak to us to see how our baggage service can help.

International Relocation Services to Africa

Are you heading to South Africa? Maybe to the vibrant city of Johannesburg or the capital Cape Town. Whether you are after the delights of the African bush or the glamour of the cities, we can help you. We have the knowledge to facilitate your move dealing with the rules and regulations surrounding international relocations.

Your African survey and quote for your international relocation

To give you an accurate and economical quote for your move to Africa, we need to carefully assess what you want to move and where to. Morocco and South Africa are many miles apart and will have different moving costs. Moving the contents of a small flat will be cheaper than a four-bedroom house. Speak to us to organise your African removals quote today.

Full and Part Loads for Africa

A full load is where you have an entire container to fill as you wish. A part-load means that you use a section of the container and only pay for what you use and share the container with other people. A full container gives you more control over the transit dates but can be more expensive. When you contact us to discuss the requirements for your move to Africa, we will go through the available options with you.

Is it better to ship by air or sea to Africa?

Freight moves all around the world in different ways; road, sea, and air. If you are setting off to South Africa, with its ample coastline, shipping by sea is the most practical. If you are heading for Zambia or Botswana, they are less accessible from the coast being landlocked countries. Shipping via the sea is slower and cheaper, whereas shipping by air is quicker but more expensive.

What are the transit times to Africa?

How long it will take to transport your belongings, will depend on where in Africa you are relocating to. If you heading to the beautiful Eastern African country of Kenya, or  Libya with its extensive Mediterranean Sea coastline it will vary. It takes around 24 – 30 days to ship to South Africa via the sea, whereas Morocco takes 12 to 22 days. Airfreight is quicker, though has a higher price tag.

Storage Services across the UK and overseas

Our flexible storage at multiple locations around the globe provides convenient storage for your needs. We can store your belongings in the best place, no matter where your journey takes you.
