Hong Kong to UK - no problemHKM, January 2018
"I have just shipped a load of stored possessions from Hong Kong to the UK. Door to door took just over two months and cost around what I was expecting. The Seven Seas crew at both ends could not have been more helpful and I had no concerns about the shipment at any time. There were no breakages - even the glass on an A3 framed certificate (bubble wrapped) arrived intact. Great job."
Things to consider when shipping to the UK

Sending food to the UK
We would advise against packing or sending any food products. If food is packed and needs to be removed from your boxes your shipping will incur additional charges and the items may have to be removed. Customs may even block the entire consignment which would then be returned to you for an additional charge. Our advice is to buy the food at your chosen destination to avoid all risk! Here's a list of the sort of items we're referring to:
- Any dairy products.
- Live plants (including potted, bare rooted, roots and bulbs).
- Seeds and nuts (including cereal grains, dried seeds like poppy seeds, popping corn and pine cones - including those in decorations!).
- Uncanned meat products (from any animal, including preserved or dried meats).
Need to send more?
Just to let you know, there's more, the EU is covered by our excellent MoveCube® service. The MoveCube® is a large container inside a trailer which can move the contents of a two-bedroom flat. It's a very simple process whereby we drop the MoveCube® off at your door, you load it up with boxes and we return to collect it again to take to your chosen destination. Easy.
