Picture the scene: You've finally gone and done it and sorted out all the clutter in your house. There's sports equipment, bizarre objet d'art that your Auntie Valerie has been giving you since you were 10 and boxes and boxes of films and music on defunct formats. Good for you, the spare room now no longer looks like a charity shop store room.
But what happens to your clutter now? Well, the first thought is to store it somewhere. The garage? Mmm, no the garage has garage-related clutter, you don't want to mix the two up. The loft? Not unless you want to see it falling back into your lap via the ceiling. So where does it go? Well, you've tried to avoid it but it looks like you're going to have to bite the bullet and pay the exorbitant prices of self-storage companies.
They do charge an awful lot for what is essential an empty space in a cold building, don't they? And there's no hint of assisting you with transport. Filling a vehicle with your treasured clutter can be a difficult job - you may even need to hire a van to cope with it all. But self-storage companies don't care about how you get there; they're only interested in you and your belongings once they hand over the key.
Luckily there is an alternative. And it's us. We offer a completely different and more affordable solution to storage, and we've called it the StoreCube™. The StoreCube™ is an off-shoot of our hugely successful MoveCube® service and is designed to make self-storage easier. The difference between us and the other self-storage companies is we bring the storage container to you!
That's right. We'll bring the container to your address so all you have to do is load it to your specifications. Then, once you're satisfied with the job, we'll take the container away again to your nearest Seven Seas Worldwide storage facility. You don't actually need to visit us at all. Whenever you want your belongings returned, just call us to arrange a date and time and we'll be back for unloading.
It's a much more efficient service that is designed to put you in control and - with our unbeatable price - we think this might just be the future of self-storage both here and abroad.

You may have noticed we're an international business. We have a strong presence all over the world in countries such as the United Kingdom, the United States, Canada, China, Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand and many more. But this doesn't mean we're only here for the big moves abroad. We're also here for the smaller moves within your home country. In fact, we're very good at it, which is why you should give us a call.
The transport network we have in place for large, international moves can be downsized to accommodate the shorter, city-to-city moves. So for instance, our MoveCube® service is used all over the world, transporting furniture, household items and excess baggage across the globe, but if you just need it to run a few things over from one city or town to another, we can cover that too. We're very proud of our MoveCube® because it offers something other relocation companies do not - time.
You see the MoveCube® is a container (of varying sizes) inside a trailer that we park outside your home. It's a lot like a mini shipping container and it's designed to take all manner of goods and items. What will happen is we'll arrive at your home address and drop off the MoveCube® for you to load. After around 4-5 hours, we shall return to collect the MoveCube® and take it to its chosen destination, wherever that may be in the country. It's as simple as that.
Naturally your transit time will be significantly reduced compared to an international shipment with our team of drivers making hundreds of national deliveries on a daily basis, so you won't have long to wait before your MoveCube® is brought to the front door of your new home address for unloading.
If you want to know more about the MoveCube® and see which size is best for you, visit the Moving section of our website or call a member of the team today. They're here 24/7 and are always happy to help. Alternatively you cut to the chase and get a free quote right now to see how much you could save!

If you've used our services in the past, you may have noticed that 2014 saw a major website revamp. Out went the grey boxes of white text, multiple menus and the woman in red sitting on a wall. In came a more minimalist approach.
We decided to shake things up because we wanted the user experience to be a better one. We know that when people surf our site, they don't float around, viewing random pages as if it were a lifestyle magazine in a dentist's waiting room; they go straight for the service page that will assist them, followed by the quote page.
This is why we've made our quote page more focussed and user-friendly. We believe it's one of the best in the business. Try it out now!
A number of shipping and relocation companies will require you to fill in a form before you can get a quote. For some reason, they want to know your personal details before proceeding. Plus, if you want to draw up a number of different quotes to see which option is best for you, they may well lock it down and tell you to expect the results of your quote via an email the following day. This just isn't convenient. Seven Seas Worldwide don't require any information or a deposit - we just want to give you a price. After that, it's up to you what you want to do next.
We offer a range of services to help move holiday luggage, excess baggage, household items, furniture and commercial goods and with our freight calculator. You'll be able to find a price that suits you in minutes.

Self-storage companies take liberties don't they? 'Hire this small, empty space for a ridiculous amount per month.' At Seven Seas Worldwide, we think it's time to shake up self-storage a little with a viable, more affordable and more convenient alternative for 2015.
It occurred to us last year that our international network of depots could easily be converted to storage units, and with that in mind, we decided to dip our toes into the world of self-storage. The first thing that stood out for us was the fact that no self-storage company (and we mean not a single one) offers the customer transportation.
If you have a lot of furniture and personal belongings to store away, you're going to need transportation, whether that be a people carrier, a van or possibly even a lorry. A little help wouldn't go amiss at this point right? Well you won't get that from the self-storage firms. Getting your stuff to the facility is YOUR problem by all accounts.
That's where we differ from the big names: We've come up with an off-shoot of our very popular MoveCube® and called it a StoreCube™. A StoreCube™ is a container inside a trailer that is brought to your home for loading. Once you've loaded the cube to suit your needs, we'll then take it away to our nearest branch of self-storage units. If you require your boxes to be returned just call to arrange a time and we'll return your items to your door. You'll never have to visit a self-storage facility again. And because we are an international firm, we can offer cheap storage units across the globe.
The StoreCube™ is also on hand for when you want to move abroad but need a place to store your belongings in the interim. So if you're moving from London to Sydney but you're not ready to move into your new place in Oz, Seven Seas Worldwide will put your belongings in storage until the time is right.

Arriving in the country where you have chosen to spend the rest of your life (or at least a significant portion of it) can bring on a mixture of emotions – excited to be starting anew yet feeling blue about the people and places being left behind. And coupled with this multiplicity of contrasting feelings is a vast list of logistical things you need to do now you’re here. Luckily, Seven Seas Worldwide is here to shoulder the burden.
Moving furniture and personal belongings from one country to another requires a lot of planning and Seven Seas Worldwide can help every step of the way with collection, shipping and delivery, in most cases, door-to-door. But what if your consignment arrives in your destination country and you’re not yet in a position to move it into your new address? Well, Seven Seas Worldwide has got that covered too.
On top of a global relocation network, we also offer storage at a very affordable rate so as soon as they arrive in the destination country and are cleared through customs, we can transport them to our nearest secure storage facility until you’re ready to receive them. We do this via our relatively new invention, the StoreCube™; this is a cube inside a trailer that can collect, store and redeliver according to your needs.
The StoreCube™ is an off-shoot of our hugely popular MoveCube® and is designed to provide a safe and inexpensive alternative to the usual storage companies, none of whom provide a transportation service similar to ours.
Should you be interested, get a free quote now via our freight calculator or talk to a member of our friendly team. They’re always here to help.
Oh and good luck with the next chapter. Make it a good one.
