Standing Out from the Crowd | MoveCube Service

09 August 2017

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.

  1. Deposit
  2. Shipping and Transport
  3. 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.

Migrant Numbers to be Reduced by New Zealand Govt

20 October 2016

The UK's decision to leave the EU has sent shock waves throughout the world and the unprecedented number of people who attended the recent Down Under Live expo brought into sharp focus that emigration to Australia and New Zealand is quickly becoming the solution for many.

The New Zealand government, wary that the number of new migrants has been growing substantially over the last few years, has announced that it will be implementing changes to reduce these numbers. However the numbers will not drop dramatically as plans reveal that over the next two years, the projected figure of 100,000 new residents will be brought down to around 95,000. Instead of reaching the target of 140 points to obtain residency, candidates will now require 160. The most notable reduction is the 5500 places held in reserve for families which has now been cut down to 2000. The government has suggested their decision to implement these new directives has been based purely on the issue of balance ensuring that skilled homegrown workers are fairly reflected in the employment market.

In addition to this news, the government has also announced that South Africans visiting New Zealand will need a visa from this November, as a result of the growing number of fraudulent South African passports discovered this year.

These new rules are believed by experts to be the start of a greater shift towards stricter controls over immigration in New Zealand, with Australia taking a similar stance. Therefore if you are considering a new life abroad in either New Zealand or Australia, Seven Seas Worldwide recommends making a decision sooner rather than later: Do the research, ask the questions, establish if a move abroad is right for you at this time. 

A decision like this is not to be taken lightly, but if you take too long to make it, you may find your opportunity to take up residency has been taken away from you anyway. Take a look at the range of services Seven Seas Worldwide has to offer. Get a free quote within minutes, and let's start your journey today!


How to Pack Liquids

05 September 2016

So you need to pack liquids in with your belongings before moving, do you? Well, first thing's first: If there's any way you can avoid packing liquids, that would be ideal. It would save us a lot of hassle. And you too of course.

But if you're determined to ship bottles of shampoo, sauces and various other containers of liquid, remember this: When it comes to packing the items away in a box, please note that the original lid on the container is never enough. You will need to pack the liquid container inside another tightly-sealed container to remove any risks of leakage. In fact, we'd recommend putting the tightly-sealed container inside another container just to be on the safe side. We're not joking. And to ensure the container is as safe as secure as it can be, wrap it in bubble-wrap or put it in a polythene bag, and then put it in the removals box.
