You may hear the odd comment online about 'hidden charges' when it comes to shipping items abroad. At Seven Seas Worldwide we do our best to make all charges transparent, laying out exactly the costs involved the moment you get a free quote via our website. We will never hit you with hidden charges.
International removal is an expensive business in general, and not only are our rates are very reasonable but in addition we have a three-stage payment plan to help you spread the costs to assist with your cash flow during the transition.
- Shipping and Transport
- Port & Container Fees and Warehouse Handling
We are upfront at the beginning as to the costs which will be incurred for our MoveCube® service. It may seem on the face of it that we're more expensive than our other international removal companies but in fact the opposite is true. But don't take our word for it, read through the details on the quotes from other companies and look out in particular for what they exclude:
- Port fees, including handling
- Container fees, including cleaning
- Storage and warehouse handling
- Quarantine and Custom inspection or examination fees
The key factor that makes us more informed is that we operate within our own global shipping network. Simply, we're there at the beginning, the middle and the end. We have first hand knowledge of all potential shipping charges (if there are any) and will lay them out to you before the journey begins. Our charges INCLUDE the items listed above and which are excluded from other removal companies' quotes. There will be some who claim these charges may not arise at all - then why exempt them? With a Door-to-Door service you'll want to know that everything is included in your quote.
As you can see from our charge structure we tailor these to assist you, this is why the Seven Seas Worldwide MoveCube® service provides free boxes, free packing materials, free loading and unloading AND free storage options! So by the end of the journey, you'll realise how much you saved.
Don't leave your treasured possessions with a removal company who either does not know or does not care about the charges at the destination. Move abroad with Seven Seas Worldwide, the company with over twenty years' experience in international shipping.

If you're familiar with our blogs, you'll be aware by now of our MoveCube® service. And you'll also be aware that we like talking about it. A lot. But did you know you can now order as many MoveCubes® as you want?
The MoveCube® is our own personal attempt at revolutionising the world of moving and relocation. Basically, we've looked beyond the man with the van and the big faceless corporation that see you as nothing more than a job number to bring you a new approach to moving your belongings from A to B. The MoveCube® is your own personal shipping container that can be brought directly to your door for loading and unloading.
As part of our MoveCube® expansion, we're now taking multiple orders. So let's say a Large MoveCube® can accommodate your living room furniture but you've got nowhere to put your kitchenware. Well, now with Seven Seas Worldwide, you can order more than one MoveCube® to make sure everything is safely collected, transported and delivered to your chosen destination. So now you don't have to leave behind that juicer you bought last year as part of a new health drive and have so far used twice.
We can be there for every eventuality, and our team are always on hand to assist, should you need advice and guidance. So if you're a little concerned that we couldn't handle a big household move, think again: We're leading the way on house moves and can design a service to suit you, whether you need one MoveCube® to move the contents of an apartment or several to deal with a big family home. Oh and don't forget, our expansion means we can now send MoveCubes® throughout the world.

The MoveCube® is an innovative way of moving your items from A to B. Forget about the big, overbearing lorry and the nightmare scenario of cramming your belongings into your car. The MoveCube® is a container inside a trailer that we bring to your front door for loading. All you have to do is load it to your specifications. When it comes to household moves, there is no better method.
After loading the MoveCube® we'll then collect and redeliver it to your chosen address whether that's the next town along or halfway across the globe. The beauty of using a MoveCube® for household removals is the simplicity. It's just a big box - a big box that you fill with smaller boxes. In fact, loading a MoveCube® is like playing a physical version of Tetris (except the boxes don't disappear).
Oh and should you require them, we also provide the cardboard boxes to help you load, along with parcel tape, marker pen and bubble wrap. And on top of that, we'll also provide a trolley for the heavier stuff and traffic cones to keep the parking space free for the MoveCube®. Yes, it's fair to say we've thought of everything. And that's what we need to do because in order for household removals to go smoothly, attention to detail is everything. Plus, the smoother the process, the happier you'll be to leave us in charge! Check out the website for more information about our most excellent solution to furniture removals.

There are two transport options open to us when moving. We can either go for the man and his van or plump for the big reliable courier company. There are positives and negatives for both these options.
It's reassuring to have a friendly face turn up at your door who'll just get on with the job once they've got a hot beverage inside them. Although their van looks like it's seen better days, right? Then you've got the big courier company who move tens of thousands of items worldwide in cargo containers, all day, every day. Okay perhaps they're not as personable but they might be more dependable. But then again, isn't a big faceless corporation a lot more difficult to communicate with if anything were to happen to your shipment?
It's a tricky one but we think we have the answer.
International freight shipping is a very complex business so we at Seven Seas Worldwide have tried our best to make the process of moving stuff from A to B as simple as possible. That's where our MoveCube service comes in. The MoveCube is a freight container designed to be carried on a trailer and parked outside your house or apartment block. With the MoveCube, you have the best of both worlds - a man with a van (or woman, of course) and a reliable furniture removals service.
Freight containers are the way forward when it comes to moving - they're strong, sturdy, safe and designed for international shipping. With the MoveCube service, we've created a more friendly approach; we don't want you to feel like just another order number, we want you to feel completely at ease when you watch the doors being locked on your container of personal belongings.
If you're moving home in the near future, whether it be to the next town or halfway round the world, speak to Seven Seas Worldwide about our simple, effective and friendly solution to shipping overseas.

We know a thing or two about moving because we've been doing it for nearly twenty years. That's why we've created what we think is the most efficient solution to furniture removals: The MoveCube®.
The MoveCube® is a furniture container inside a trailer that is brought to the door of your house or block of flats. All you need to do is load it with strong and well-labelled boxes and wait until we redeliver it to the door of your new address. It's as simple as that.
The MoveCube® comes in three sizes, so if you're a minimalist, you should check out the small MoveCube®; if you own a single apartment, you'll probably be better-suited to the medium MoveCube®; and if you're in a large family or you're a collector of enormous antique dining tables and rare stuffed animals, then the large MoveCube® will be more your bag.
A move can become even more stressful if you have to ship your belongings abroad. However, the MoveCube® caters for this too in a number of countries. Our furniture shipping service covers the UK, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Thailand, Hong Kong and China, so if you're starting a new life overseas, the MoveCube® furniture container is the ideal solution. We believe household removals don't have to be as stressful as people expect them to be.
All we need from you is perfectly-packed, taped and labelled boxes for loading onto the MoveCube®. We've done our best to nudge you in the right direction by providing free boxes and packing materials with every order, so you've no excuse! Not that we'd expect you to pack your prized possessions in a bunch of flimsy old boxes you found in the attic. That wouldn't be good for anyone.
Contact a member of the team today to find out more about our furniture containers on 0800 21 66 98 or visit our MoveCube page for more info about this, quite frankly, brilliant box.
