Cape Town Courier & Messenger
services for companies and private individuals

Local courier & messenger

Our local services apply to Cape Town and surrounds, since our hub is situated in Paarden Eiland, which is 3 - 4 kilometres from the city’s CBD, and a 10-15 minute drive to Cape Town airport. Our Messenger service in the CBD and Peninsula has been a popular option amongst clients for the past 26 years.

Overnight deliveries to and from destinations slightly further afield, such as Paarl, Stellenbosch and Somerset West are serviced under our Country rounds.

The Greater Western Cape, including the West Coast, Swartland and Sandveld, are also covered under our local services.

Our central location assists in our ability to respond quickly and immediately to collection requests for local as well as national/international shipments.
