Default Shipping a car to South Africa

I live in the Western Cape and am currently in the UK following the death of my mother who has left me her 12 year. Old VW golf. I’d like to ship it to SA together with other household items. Is it possible to do as it hasn’t been in my name for 12 months but has been gifted to me? Does anyone know of a reliable and knowledgeable expert in matters regarding car shipments to South Africa?

Welcome to BE
We dao ask all new members to have a quick read of the forum rules, pale bar at the top, and should you have any sire related problems please contact one of the moderators, names in bold at the bottom right of each forum page.

We do have a South Africa section on the forum,https://britishexpats.com/forum/south-africa-171/ but it doesn't seem to be very active, you could post there and hope it is seen, or post on our removals forum asking for recommendations. https://britishexpats.com/forum/over...nal-moves-193/

As above. The SA forum has been pretty moribund for several years now, but I had a quick look and there are a couple of old threads about shipping/importing vehicles. The moderator is, or used to be, Ed <<<SNIP>>> and he contributed to some of these. I knew him in SA years ago but we've sort of lost touch, and I'm reluctant to share the contact details I still have. He's in the UK now and you might be able to reach him through the forum, or one of the mods?
