South Africa shipping costs

Hi all

We are moving to Mauritius in a couple of weeks time, we got quotes from a number of companies of which seemed pretty expensive, could someone give me an indication of what I should expect to pay should I ship my goods to Mauritius from South Africa.

Some help would be appreciated.

Hi Lyle, the quotes we have received are about R110,000.00 for a 12m container, excluding a whole lot of fees that will be calculated at destination :(

Not sure how that compares with the ones you've received?

What size container are you looking at taking? And are you shipping a car, or just your household effects?

Hey Lyle. We just moved from Jhb to Mauritius last week. Get hold of me on what's app on xxx. I can give you some advice on the container.

Hi Elaine. Compliments of the season to you.  I have googled Incotrance, but cannot find their details. Do you have a website or contact number?


could you help with some info on  sending container from south africa with car and boat.
what is the procedure , and whom can we contact to get all the info once off

Hi Bruce. Send me a contact number and I'll give you a call.


There are several companies that provide such services. I prefer Velogic because they have a solid group behind them and fully recommend their services.

I would love to give you the contact details of their Manager of Sea Operations but will refrain to do so as this seems to be against the rules.

PM me if you wish or just contact them directly.


Thanks you if you could give me their details.
I would greatly appreciate it.

Hi Bruce,
I've PM you his details.


I also need a price for a 6m Container with Furniture from South Africa(Brakpan) to Mauritius.

Please e-mail-***
