The International MoveCube® – International Relocation Made Easy!
The International MoveCube® is a shipping container designed for relocating overseas that we put inside a trailer and park outside your home. We leave the trailer with you, you load up the MoveCube® with your boxes and we’ll turn up to collect it for shipping to your chosen destination*. It really is the easiest way to go about moving abroad.
What are the advantages of a MoveCube® service?
- A controlled worldwide network owned by us: We have expanded our presence throughout the world with no agents, no affiliates, no franchisees and no separate companies. You will always be dealing with the same group from start to finish, door–to–door
- No new or unexpected charges: Our clear itemised quotes provide details of the charges in the UK and at the destination
- Free storage: Once your shipment is collected, depending on the number of MoveCubes® you required, you can enjoy up to 4 weeks’ free storage to allow you time to tie up loose ends and schedule the departure of your shipment. Plus up to 4 more weeks will be awarded upon the arrival of your shipment to allow you time to find the right place to stay. Please note if you only order one MoveCube®, you will only be entitled to 2 weeks' free storage
- A three-part payment to help you budget: We will not demand one full payment in advance of collection. Instead, the charges will be staggered to help you find your feet when you arrive
- Total security and protection: Once the MoveCube® is sealed at your home it is not scheduled to be unsealed again until you open it at your new address
So where do you have to live to take advantage of this fantastic door-to-door service? Well, here’s the list of lucky countries so far:
- United Kingdom
- New Zealand
- South Africa
- Hong Kong
We can handle international shipping out to these locations too, with or without MoveCubes®.
Take a look below at the dimensions of our MoveCubes® designed to suit your needs:
- Small: Height 1.871m Width 1.114m Length 0.964m Volume 2.01m³
- Medium: Height 1.871m Width 1.464m Length 1.112m Volume 3.05m³
- Large: Height 1.871m Width 1.464m Length 2.264m Volume 6.20m³
We pride ourselves in operating a safe, secure and reliable service but for peace of mind we always suggest taking out Premium Insurance which will provide you with comprehensive cover for your MoveCube® and its contents. By packing your own MoveCubes® you can better judge what you need to take and this can reduce the amount you actually send which in turn will save you money! And don’t worry, this will not affect your Premium Insurance.

* Our MoveCube® service is only available in the areas around our local depots in the major cities. However, in order to assist those people much further outside the city we also offer the opportunity to pack a MoveCube® at the Seven Seas Worldwide depot nearest to you. Here are your options:
- Depot – Door In this instance, the address from which you wish to send lies outside the operational area of our closest depot so we are unable to deliver any MoveCubes® to you. Your destination address however does lie within the operational area of our closest depot meaning we are able to deliver MoveCubes®. So here's what happens: You load a van or pickup truck with your possessions and drive to our closest depot. You will then pack one or more MoveCubes®, depending on how much you wish to send. After shipping, the MoveCubes® will be delivered to your destination address for unpacking.
- Depot – Depot In this instance, both the address from which you wish to send and the destination address lie outside the operational area of our closest depots so we are unable to deliver any MoveCubes® directly to you. So here's what you do: You load a van or pickup truck with your possessions and drive to our closest depot. You will then pack one or more MoveCubes®, depending on how much you wish to send. After shipping, you or your nominee will drive to the closest depot to your destination address (where the MoveCubes® will have been delivered) to unpack and collect your shipment.
- Door – Depot In this third and final instance, the address from which you wish to send lies within the operational area of our closest depot so we are able to deliver MoveCubes® but your destination address however lies outside the operational area meaning we are unable to deliver MoveCubes® to that location. In this case, the MoveCubes® would be delivered to your address to be packed. After shipping, you or your nominee will drive to the closest depot to your destination address (where the MoveCubes® will have been delivered) to unpack and collect your shipment.

Our memories have arrived safely
"It is always stressful doing an international move, so when we distilled our house into a small collection of treasured memories, wrapped them up and put them in an array of boxes it was more emotinal than expected. Our MoveCube arrived on schedule as communicated, was packed, sealed and waved goodbye. Anxiously waiting we followed its progree online, tracking its every move. It came home to us, again on schedule, opened and everything was in the same position and state we left them. Happy reunion, great service, good price, will use again, highly recommend."
