Frequently asked questions

We ship to receiving depots in Johannesburg and Cape Town.

Our delivery prices are determined by the size of box or package you are sending, making it incredibly easy to check exactly how much it will cost to send your parcel. We have options to suit all budgets that can be discussed in finer detail with your friendly customer service agent.

Our part-load service allows you to ship goods to South Africa within a shared shipping container. This is ideal for the light-packers and you will only need to pay for the space your items take up. If you are shipping large, bulky items, you can opt for a sole-use 20ft or 40ft container. You will pay for the whole use of this shipping container and you can fill it as you wish.

Sending items to Ghana is our forte and no load is too big or too small for our teams. Some of the most popular items we regularly ship to Ghana include:

Ellcworth Express provides a specialised shipping service to South Africa. Our specialist South African sea freight knowledge ensures we can keep your freight costs low. We provide both a weekly container shipping and a door-to-door shipping service between UK and South Africa.

Alternatively, if you need your belongings in South Africa in a hurry, airfreight is the quickest transit method to move your possessions. Shipping via air freight is highly convenient, but this does come with a higher price tag. Your quote for air freight to South Africa is calculated based on the weight of your consignment, meaning it is not so economical for larger loads such as an entire home.
