Following are ways to arrange the delivery of your international order:
POST OFFICE EXPRESS MAIL SERVICE
Post office deliveries are generally the lowest cost option for smaller items. It is fast and reliable and delivers your order to your door within days. There are volume and weight restrictions on the package and the maximum value of insurance on a package is limited. It is most suited to relatively lower value items like cushion covers, throws, table runners, lamp shades, smaller decor items, etc.
INTERNATIONAL COURIER SERVICES
Deliveries through International couriers, like TNT, DHL, Fedex, etc. are more suited to door to door deliveries or more valuable items.
International Airfreight options include:
Airfreight to airport Only: The airfreight is to your closest international airport only. You will have to clear customs by yourself and arrange transport from the airport to your address. This is sometimes the best option for lighter weight, high value items,i.e.. art, more valuable boxed and crated items, etc. Insurance can be unlimited.
Airfreight to airport plus delivery to your door: This option is as above, however, a third party agent will arrange customs clearance and delivery to your door. Although convenient, it is generally more expensive.
Airfreight deliveries are more convenient for smaller volume and lighter articles. The cost off airfreight shipping is generally calculates as either a rate per Kg, or per Volumetric Weight, whichever is the greatest. Volumetric weight is calculated as the Width(cm) x Length(cm) x Depth(cm) of the package, divided by 6000. A package of, for instance 50cm x 50cm x 50cm will therefore have an equivalent volumetric weight of 20.8Kg.
Sea freight is the shipping method of choice for large and heavy furniture items., i.e. Sofas, Dining tables, etc. It offers a cost effective way to deliver your goods. It does, however, take considerably longer than airfreight shipping options.
Sea freight can be arranged to be either door to door, or door to port. With the door to port option, it will be your responsibility to arrange customs clearance and delivery from the designated port of delivery. This can be done either by yourself or by appointing a clearance and delivery agent in your country. Appointing an agent in your country by yourself, may in some cases be more cost effective than for the South African agent to appoint them to arrange the clearance and delivery. in your country.
Goods for sea freight can also be delivered ex Cape Town, for you to arrange shipping
