New web site launched

This week we have launched a new web site specifically for clients who wish to ship a car, motorbike or personal effects from the UK to South Africa.

Under certain criteria South African nationals who are returning to South Africa after working in the UK may be permitted to import a car and benefit from a full duty waiver. In view of the high price of cars in South Africa this can represent a welcome cost saving.

We have been assisting clients with their shipping requirements to South Africa since we started operations in 1994. Cars, bikes and personal effects are loaded in containers at our warehouse for shipment to Cape Town, Port Elizabeth and Durban.

Cars are also shipped on roll on roll off services from Southampton to Port Elizabeth and Durban and from Sheerness to Durban.

If you would like a quotation for shipping to South Africa or information about the duty waiver, please visit www.shippingtosa.co.uk or alternatively e-mail: sales@shippingtosa.co.uk

Wavecrest Celebrates Seventeen Years of Service

This week marked the seventeenth anniversary of the foundation of Wavecrest Ltd. From day one we have always been based in Gravesend, Kent on the banks of the River Thames.

Initiially we worked from a small office in a listed building (up three flights of stairs!) in the centre of town but in 2002 we relocated to our current premises at Denton Wharf - a former cargo jetty where the annual wool clip from the Falklands Islands used to be landed.

Our office overlooks the River Thames and we have a "delightful" view of the majestic chimneys of Tilbury power station.

The move to Denton Wharf enabled us to operate our own warehouse facility and we now offer a full range of services including container unpacking and loading, palletising, order picking, long and short term storage etc.

If you would like further information about our services, please contact us on 01474 331146 or e-mail: glen@wavecrest.co.uk
