Shipping Container Costs to Pretoria, South Africa

Named after the Voortrekker leader, Andries Pretorius, the city of Pretoria is located in the Gauteng province of South Africa. The city features a unique blend of architectural styles, from art deco and neomodern, to British Colonial and 19th century German. You can see many of these beautiful buildings for yourself by visiting places such as The Palace of Justice, The Kruger House and The Union Buildings. Visit the stunning Voortrekker Monument, which is one of the most popular landmarks not only in Pretoria, but also in the whole of South Africa. As one of the country’s most prominent cities for education, Pretoria is home to several schools and universities, including the Tshwane University of Technology and the University of Pretoria. Bask in the city’s natural beauty by taking a trip to the Pretoria National Botanical Garden or go horseback riding through the wilderness to spot some spectacular African animals. Mapungubwe Museum, Transvaal Museum and The Van Tilburg Collection are just a handful of the fascinating museums located in Pretoria, which specialise in a variety of different topics. Before you relocate to your new home in South Africa, it is necessary to arrange the shipping of your household belongings. We’ve come up with a simple guide to help you choose a shipping container size: Items from inside a 4 or 5-bedroom house, or a 3-bedroom house with a medium sized vehicle, will fit in a 40-foot container. Alternatively, items from inside a 3-bedroom house will be better suited for a 20-foot container. Now that’s been sorted, prepare to make friends with a few zebras and lions in your new home of Pretoria.
