Seven Seas Worldwide has long been the first choice for many international students. The reason for this is we have a system in place to make the moving process as simple and stress-free as possible; and given the other life-changing events that can happen to you as a student, the last thing you want to be preoccupied with is moving your stuff from A to B.

But just so we’re clear, let’s take a competitor – in this case, Unibaggage – and show you how we differ from them. In a good way.

First of all Unibaggage is not a global business; it relies on other courier companies for the transporting. This means it cannot closely monitor your shipment. Seven Seas Worldwide has a long-established global shipping network. We’re with your belongings from A to B. Peace of mind and all that.

And because we’re a global company, this means we have business centres around the world to take your call and assist you 24/7. Unibaggage clock off at 10pm and don’t answer the phones at all at the weekend.

Unibaggage don’t know the shipping world like we do. For instance, Seven Seas Worldwide aware of all possible customs and destination charges that might be incurred and will alert you accordingly so there’s transparency right from the beginning. Unibaggage won’t know about these charges and may hit you with the extra cost further down the line.

If you find you have a lot to send, it may be in your best interest to move with a Seven Seas Worldwide MoveCube. This is a container inside a trailer that we bring to your home for loading. It’s a fast, affordable and more secure service compared to a simple courier system that will transport your boxes without the extra protection. Plus with a MoveCube we offer 2 weeks’ free storage at the origin and the destination!

Seven Seas Worldwide offers a three stage payment plan to allow you to spread the cost. Unibaggage requires just one payment upfront and may charge you for any potential adjustments to your shipment that should arise during the journey.

Unibaggage may not also prepare you for the potentiality of quarantine inspection fees, port document fees, port handling charges and warehouse handling charges, all of which only an established shipping company like Seven Seas Worldwide would know about prior to the journey.

Finally Unibaggage only offers an air service. The fact is if you can plan ahead and do it by sea with Seven Seas Worldwide, you will pay a fraction of what it costs to send by air! (However if you wish to send your items by air, we can do that too.)

Seven Seas Worldwide are Expanding Again

01 February 2018


We are delighted to announce the expansion of our network here at Seven Seas Worldwide. We've always been able to collect and deliver items throughout Europe but until now we've not had an established depot in Europe to assist with the demand. Until now. A fully operational depot in Belgium is now up and running.

Located just South East of Antwerp, our new European hub will ensure our good growth in Europe continues in 2018 and beyond providing clearer channels and better coverage for all shipments going in and out of Europe.

This also means we can operate our increasingly popular MoveCube service in and out of mainland Europe which we're very excited about because we believe the MoveCube is the future of moving home. If you want a smooth, stress-free, door-to-door service, look no further than the MoveCube!

And we're not stopping at Antwerp. We want to continue this expansion over the next few years so our presence in Europe is as comprehensive as any shipping company or international courier.

Watch this space.

A Safe Haven

27 February 2017


You may remember last year in May, the Seven Seas Worldwide team descended on a community hall in Cockfosters to organise a charity drive in aid of the Safe Haven Orphanage in Thailand. The reason for this is that over the years, Seven Seas Worldwide has accumulated dozens of boxes from Thai customers who - for one reason or another - never claimed their belongings. 

In May we sifted through these abandoned boxes and found a wealth of...um, items.

Once the boxes had been organised and categorised, the team then packed the best items into new Seven Seas Worldwide boxes to send back to Thailand. Destination: The Safe Haven Orphanage,an extremely worthwhile charity that has been supported by our partners Thai Smile for a number of years and help children all over Thailand find stability and safety through shelter, clothing, medical care, nutrition and education.

We are now pleased to announce the items arrived safely and securely at the orphanage with all the children receiving a variety of goods together with celebratory drinks and food. Thank you to all who made this such a successful an rewarding venture.

Think About a MoveCube®

15 July 2016

We've received quite a bit of attention on Facebook recently from customers who have moved abroad with a MoveCube®, so we thought we'd share the love with a blog post, just in case you were thinking of moving with us too.

Chantelle Pooley posted to 'Poms Wanting Oz' showing other potential customers just how much you can store inside a Large MoveCube®. Even we were surprised by the amount. Good luck unpacking all that, Chantelle.

Karl Robbins in Perth also praised our MoveCube® service noting that the cube had been untouched throughout its journey from the UK to Oz. He was also a little bewildered as to how they were able to fit so much into a Large MoveCube® but as you can see, the spacious garage is now home to every item shipped. Good luck to you and the family on your adventure Down Under, Karl.

If you're looking to move to Australia or elsewhere in the world, take a look at our MoveCube® page and find out what we can do for you. We now offer a Multiple MoveCube® service, sending as many MoveCubes® as you need for moving day. Get a free quote or call a member of the team. Oh and if you've used us in the past, get in touch, we'd love to hear your story!

And should you need any maintenance or home improvement tips for your new home, our friends at SawsHub have the best guides for you!

Welcome to Warwickshire!

28 June 2016


Seven Seas Worldwide helps hundreds of customers every day move their personal belongings from A to B, all over the world. But the boot was on the other foot at the beginning of the summer when we moved our operations from Daventry to the Grovelands Industrial Estate in Warwickshire. Sufficed to say, everything went smoothly!

The decision to move to the estate was agreed with letting agents D&P Holt, confirming a ten year lease term. A total of eight members of the Seven Seas Worldwide team will be based at the unit in Grovelands, overseeing the collections and deliveries of customers throughout the world. The move came about thanks to continued healthy growth for the company over the last few years with a significant percentage of custom coming from the student community.

Seven Seas Worldwide has long been the students' champion, keeping prices low and providing a comprehensive collection, storage and delivery service, in many cases delivering door-to-door, putting an end to the hassle of hiring transport, making visits to expensive self-storage facilities and asking your reluctant friends to help you out on moving day. Plus our international shipping network means we can be here for students all over the world, from the UK and USA to Australia, China and beyond.

The location of the Grovelands Industrial Estate so close to the M6 is perfect for a company like Seven Seas Worldwide who rely heavily on a transport system network to deliver parcels, boxes and assorted personal belongings on a daily basis.

Grovelands has a range of units still on offer ranging from 9,440 sq ft to 43,000 sq ft. For more information contact D&P Holt on 024 7655 5180.
