Ten years ago, Seven Seas Worldwide introduced our unique removals service, the MoveCube®, which, to this day, continues to revolutionise international moves. To date, our expert team has successfully completed 31,461 MoveCube® jobs*, sending shipments to destinations across the globe and helping our customers affordably, securely and efficiently transport their most treasured possessions to their new life abroad or return them to their home country.

What makes our MoveCube® different from other international removal services?

Unlike other international movers that load their customer's belongings loose into a shared container, our MoveCube® is your own dedicated mini shipping container delivered directly to your door, providing your goods with ultimate protection during their overseas journey.

There are three sizes available, Small, Medium and Large, and we also provide multiple containers for larger loads. Each can carry up to a whopping 1.25 tonnes (depending on the destination), making them ideal for transporting household items, especially those that are particularly heavy or fragile, such as vinyl record collections, boxes of books, washing machines, sofas, TV screens and much more. Here are a few more reasons our international moving services are considered the best in the country:

  • No hidden fees: our free online quote tool clearly itemises all the costs involved in our overseas removals service, including transportation, depot handling and customs clearance. We also never demand total payment upfront — instead, charging in several affordable instalments.
  • Secure storage facilities available: for all our international MoveCube® removals, we offer two weeks of free storage in both the origin and destination countries at one of our safe and secure depots.
  • Free starter pack: all MoveCube® orders include a free starter pack containing a box cutter, marker pen, brown parcel tape and more to help you wrap your belongings for their international journey.

4 things to consider before moving abroad

Whether it's for love, a career opportunity, to study or simply to immerse yourself in a different culture, there are many reasons why you might be considering a fresh start overseas. But, moving abroad isn't as easy as packing your bags and hopping on a plane. There are several factors to consider before making the big decision — here are four key questions for you to ponder:

 

Icon one

Does the country you're moving to suit your lifestyle?

In addition to considerations like cost of living, job prospects, culture and climate, it's wise to think about whether your chosen destination is suitable for the new life you hope to lead.

Do you enjoy the fast pace of a big city, or would you prefer a quiet beachside town? Are you looking to learn a language and immerse yourself in a different culture or simply searching for a sunnier home from home? Whatever the answers, ensure you do your research and speak to other expats about their experiences.

How long do you intend to live abroad?

Without a clear plan, you risk getting stuck in limbo, so decide the length of time you'll spend living overseas — be it months, years or forever! A clear timeline will help you figure out your budget, accommodation and travel plans, the best visa to apply for and if you need to look for employment.

It'll also give you an idea of how much to pack and whether you need to arrange secure storage to keep the possessions you're leaving behind safe while you're away on your adventure.

Will you manage being far from your loved ones?

Although moving overseas is exciting, saying goodbye to your friends and family can be tough. That doesn't mean you should let homesickness hold you back, though. Rather, familiarise yourself with ways to combat these emotions before booking your flights.

A few of our top tips include joining volunteering opportunities in your local community to meet new people, setting aside time to relax and unwind, and writing a diary to help remind yourself of the positive experiences you've had during your journey.

Icon four

Are you prepared for any bumps in the road?

While it's easy to get swept up by dreams of spending your days on the beach surrounded by new friends, be realistic about your relocation, as there are always challenges.

For example, one of the main concerns many expats face is finding employment, so try to secure a job before jetting off or save enough money to pay for housing until a suitable position comes along. As with all massive life decisions, a little careful planning goes a long way to ensuring a stress-free transition.
