Yes. SA law says that movers are responsible for your goods from the moment they pick them up at your current premises to the moment you sign off on their delivery at the new one. Not only that, but the Consumer Protection Act (CPA) says that the mover is directly responsible, meaning if something is damaged, you don’t even have to deal with an insurer, you deal directly with the mover.


​At reputable moving companies like JHB Removals, for example, we not only take every precaution to safeguard your precious belongings (secure wrapping & protective packaging, with extra care and special treatment), but we also take full responsibility for your goods and offer ideal peace-of-mind movers’ insurance.

PLUS: As a bonus, we’ll also waive any deposits on storage if you use JHB Removals to move your home or office, etc. – saving you even more on moving costs.
