Semigration, the ability to live in one area while working in another, allows those whose work does not require office attendance to move to different areas, away from the chaos and pace of big city life.
Cape Town and surrounding towns remain the country’s top destination for migration according to a Leading Removal Company in Cape Town. The slower-paced lifestyle, greater security, and availability of top schools are significant drawcards to Gauteng. “Semigrators” are not the only migrants to the Western Cape, younger executive career-builders are also banking on the job opportunities the Cape offers the executive market.
Destinations within the greater “Cape” are varied. Young executive families enjoy living in the CBD, upscale communal living such as Century City, where many Regional and national Offices are located or are within easy reach, or in suburbs such as Durbanville, Welgelegen, Plattekloof, and Paarl.
A Leading removal company in Somerset West has had its hands full in Somerset-West &Helderberg region due to its evergreen attraction of migrant executive living, where properties are spacious and well-developed and the close proximity to Cape Town affords residents the convenience of accessing professional and entertainment convenience without too much of a trek.
The diverse cultural market of migrants to Cape Town is also largely met through its suburbs and/or developing neighboring towns.
Hermanus has long been a favorite holiday and residential destination for those from the Highveld. It offers all the amenities of a city while retaining its small-town charm. Hermanus is serviced by hospitals, shopping malls, schools, and a vibrant business community. It offers the convenience of a short 90-minute commute to CT International Airport. Removal Companies in Hermanus are inundated by the emigrating Community from all corners of South Africa including Cape Ionians.
Paarl and Stellenbosch are recognized historically but offer newly transplanted residents the same conveniences and basic facilities such as top schools. The modern trend of estate living meets the demand for safe and luxurious living, particularly with executives requiring regular absences from home.

The West Coast of the Cape has experienced a spurt of growth over recent years. Towns such as Yzerfontein, St Helena Bay, and Langebaan are rapidly transforming from holiday destinations to predominantly residential towns, almost “remote suburbs” of Cape Town itself, facilitated by the outwards creeping of Blouberg and Melkbosstrand and the wide, free-flowing West Coast Road, the R44, which allows easy access to and from Cape Town.
The expansion of the N7 into a fully functioning four-lane freeway now makes the 60-kilometer trip from Malmsbury to the Cape Town CBD a pleasure to undertake. This road offers an alternative route for emigration homeowners moving to Langebaan and Velddrif heading in the direction of Durbanville or the Tiger Valley area.
It is a misguided belief that areas in Cape Town are single-language streams. One would be excused to believe that Malmsbury, for example, is predominantly Afrikaans-speaking and cultured. While it is an agriculturally based economy, Malmsbury’s proximity to Cape Town and Durbanville/Bellville, combined with its easy access to the latter, means that the expansion of the residential area in the town has attracted an increasing number of English-speaking residents making furniture removal companies a high in demand service in-between these areas.
Former Gauteng residents moving to the Cape are also first testing the residential pool to find the perfect fit before buying. Your local moving companies in Pretoria say that many of their residents are specifically choosing the Garden Route destinations like Plettenberg Bay whilst many families choose to move from rural areas around Limpopo and Mpumalanga to Pretoria says a National Nelspruit removal company. Generally, homes in Gauteng are much larger than that available in the Cape region, and household contents are more plentiful and bulkier in terms of items such as wooden furniture, etc. Before settling for smaller options first up, transplants are increasingly opting to make sure that home size, culture, and geography offer a comfortable fit for the entire family before committing to buying a home. At the end of the day, all moving companies in Cape Town agree that most families making big regional relocation decisions are all leading to Cape Town.
