Emigrating and the Problem of Self-Storage

09 December 2014

moving abroad

Moving overseas is probably one of the biggest decisions of your life and the last thing you want to be weighed down by is the logistics of the whole thing - that's what shipping companies are for. However, there is always the possibility that you might need to put your items in storage before moving them to your chosen destination abroad - and that's something that shipping companies can't help you with...except us. Obviously.

We hit upon the idea that if we're moving people's belongings around the world and placing them in depots before shipping them off, we may as well turn these depots into secure storage facilities. And that's what we've done. Not only that, we now also provide a method of transport that collects all items from your home address so you don't have to cart them to the storage facility yourself. This is something that even self-storage companies don't do.

This method of transport is called a StoreCube™ and it's an off-shoot of our highly successful MoveCube® service. It's the simplest way of moving your stuff into storage and it works like this. First of all, you arrange the move with Seven Seas Worldwide via our frankly brilliant freight calculator. We'll then turn up at a time convenient to you with a StoreCube™, a container inside a trailer that is towed to your address by a Seven Seas Worldwide van. You will then have a few hours to load up the cube with your belongings. Later, we shall return to collect your packed cube and transfer the contents to the nearest Seven Seas Worldwide storage facility, ready to be shipped at an agreed time.

Don't go to a shipping company that will only do half the job - talk to Seven Seas Worldwide about moving, shipping and storage.
