The Courier Guy - Courier Partner

According to the Estates Act 66 of 1965 the original signed will is the only valid will accepted by the Master of the High Court. As a result, it is imperative that the will is not only stored in a secure and safe environment but that it be protected when in transport to SmartWill for storage.

To ensure the security of the will we have partnered with the Courier Guy Couriers who have proven themselves as a leading courier company in South Africa.

What some of our customers think.

"The process of updating my will was so overwhelming that I snoozed the reminder on the to-do list since my second-born son was born... and he is almost 3. Then I found SmartWill.
The website is so intuitive and extremely simple. I found myself wondering whether it was too simplistic! The website guides you through an easy, step-by-step process that you can complete in your own time, in the comfort of your home. It takes an overwhelming task, and breaks it down into easy-to-answer questions. The cost is nominal, the quality is extraordinary. You don’t need to make an appointment with a lawyer, yet your will is reviewed by a lawyer. The whole process was so streamlined, I really can’t fault it. I strongly recommend that you just take the first step. The rest is easy." - Tanya Hanekom
"A will is always the lowest item on most peoples daily priority list, but Smartwill helps make it as easy and as seamless as possible. With the ability to dip in and out of the website when you have time to complete the details. With constant but not overbearing email reminders, and good advice of real people when you need it, the overall all adds up to an excellent service for the price. Thanks Smartwill I can sleep a little easier now!" - Charles Edwards
