When you are immigrating to South Africa, you may consider bringing your personal belongings with you. You can transport your belongings i.e. home contents or vehicles by sea or air.
In order to ensure that you will be covered in the event of damage, it is best to insure your personal belongings with a reliable transit insurer. South African transit insurance is usually much more affordable than the transit insurance provided overseas.
With transit insurance, your goods are covered for the journey in the event of theft or damage.
This insurance is a once-off payment and from the minute your goods are loaded onto the ship or plane, there is cover until the goods are delivered at your chosen destination.
Using an insurer in South Africa means that should there be a claim, you will be claiming from the country that you are based in and it will therefore be settled much faster than if the insurer is based in another country. The settlement process will be smoother as the payment will be in the currency that the new goods will be purchased in and the currency of your new country.
