Pack your best swimming costume, stock up on the sunscreen and prepare to be completely captivated by the beautiful city of Durban. The city’s coastline location and warm, comfortable temperatures draw countless visitors and expats every year. To enjoy Durban’s golden beaches, visit the Golden Mile, which is not only the city’s prime location for sunbathing, but also a popular place to fish, surf, skate and visit aquariums, restaurants and casinos. Durban also boasts one of the world’s largest aquariums - uShaka Marine World, where visitors can see all manner of fascinating marine wildlife, from dolphins and hammerhead sharks, to eagle rays and penguins. Along with an extensive road system, Durban also has several railways, buses, taxis, rickshaws and, of course, boats. King Shaka International Airport is also situated in Durban, offering services to many domestic and international locations. Durban’s gorgeous weather is a very attractive feature for the city. With dry, warm winters and humid, hot summers, every day is a good day to enjoy the beach in Durban! But before you pick out that perfect surfboard, you must arrange the shipping of your personal items. Two options are available in terms of shipping container size: A 40-foot container, which could hold the contents of a 4 or 5-bedroom house, or a 3-bedroom house along with a vehicle. The second option is a 20-foot container, which could hold the contents of a 3-bedroom house, with some extra room remaining for one or two small appliances. Once that’s sorted, you’ll be well on your way to enjoying the stunning city of Durban.
In general a car will fit into a 20ft container. You will also need to consider quarantine and tax charges usually levied on importing vehicles.
