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.
- Shipping and Transport
- 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.

Picture the scene: You've finally gone and done it and sorted out all the clutter in your house. There's sports equipment, bizarre objet d'art that your Auntie Valerie has been giving you since you were 10 and boxes and boxes of films and music on defunct formats. Good for you, the spare room now no longer looks like a charity shop store room.
But what happens to your clutter now? Well, the first thought is to store it somewhere. The garage? Mmm, no the garage has garage-related clutter, you don't want to mix the two up. The loft? Not unless you want to see it falling back into your lap via the ceiling. So where does it go? Well, you've tried to avoid it but it looks like you're going to have to bite the bullet and pay the exorbitant prices of self-storage companies.
They do charge an awful lot for what is essential an empty space in a cold building, don't they? And there's no hint of assisting you with transport. Filling a vehicle with your treasured clutter can be a difficult job - you may even need to hire a van to cope with it all. But self-storage companies don't care about how you get there; they're only interested in you and your belongings once they hand over the key.
Luckily there is an alternative. And it's us. We offer a completely different and more affordable solution to storage, and we've called it the StoreCube™. The StoreCube™ is an off-shoot of our hugely successful MoveCube® service and is designed to make self-storage easier. The difference between us and the other self-storage companies is we bring the storage container to you!
That's right. We'll bring the container to your address so all you have to do is load it to your specifications. Then, once you're satisfied with the job, we'll take the container away again to your nearest Seven Seas Worldwide storage facility. You don't actually need to visit us at all. Whenever you want your belongings returned, just call us to arrange a date and time and we'll be back for unloading.
It's a much more efficient service that is designed to put you in control and - with our unbeatable price - we think this might just be the future of self-storage both here and abroad.

You may have noticed we're an international business. We have a strong presence all over the world in countries such as the United Kingdom, the United States, Canada, China, Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand and many more. But this doesn't mean we're only here for the big moves abroad. We're also here for the smaller moves within your home country. In fact, we're very good at it, which is why you should give us a call.
The transport network we have in place for large, international moves can be downsized to accommodate the shorter, city-to-city moves. So for instance, our MoveCube® service is used all over the world, transporting furniture, household items and excess baggage across the globe, but if you just need it to run a few things over from one city or town to another, we can cover that too. We're very proud of our MoveCube® because it offers something other relocation companies do not - time.
You see the MoveCube® is a container (of varying sizes) inside a trailer that we park outside your home. It's a lot like a mini shipping container and it's designed to take all manner of goods and items. What will happen is we'll arrive at your home address and drop off the MoveCube® for you to load. After around 4-5 hours, we shall return to collect the MoveCube® and take it to its chosen destination, wherever that may be in the country. It's as simple as that.
Naturally your transit time will be significantly reduced compared to an international shipment with our team of drivers making hundreds of national deliveries on a daily basis, so you won't have long to wait before your MoveCube® is brought to the front door of your new home address for unloading.
If you want to know more about the MoveCube® and see which size is best for you, visit the Moving section of our website or call a member of the team today. They're here 24/7 and are always happy to help. Alternatively you cut to the chase and get a free quote right now to see how much you could save!

If you've used our services in the past, you may have noticed that 2014 saw a major website revamp. Out went the grey boxes of white text, multiple menus and the woman in red sitting on a wall. In came a more minimalist approach.
We decided to shake things up because we wanted the user experience to be a better one. We know that when people surf our site, they don't float around, viewing random pages as if it were a lifestyle magazine in a dentist's waiting room; they go straight for the service page that will assist them, followed by the quote page.
This is why we've made our quote page more focussed and user-friendly. We believe it's one of the best in the business. Try it out now!
A number of shipping and relocation companies will require you to fill in a form before you can get a quote. For some reason, they want to know your personal details before proceeding. Plus, if you want to draw up a number of different quotes to see which option is best for you, they may well lock it down and tell you to expect the results of your quote via an email the following day. This just isn't convenient. Seven Seas Worldwide don't require any information or a deposit - we just want to give you a price. After that, it's up to you what you want to do next.
We offer a range of services to help move holiday luggage, excess baggage, household items, furniture and commercial goods and with our freight calculator. You'll be able to find a price that suits you in minutes.

Self-storage companies take liberties don't they? 'Hire this small, empty space for a ridiculous amount per month.' At Seven Seas Worldwide, we think it's time to shake up self-storage a little with a viable, more affordable and more convenient alternative for 2015.
It occurred to us last year that our international network of depots could easily be converted to storage units, and with that in mind, we decided to dip our toes into the world of self-storage. The first thing that stood out for us was the fact that no self-storage company (and we mean not a single one) offers the customer transportation.
If you have a lot of furniture and personal belongings to store away, you're going to need transportation, whether that be a people carrier, a van or possibly even a lorry. A little help wouldn't go amiss at this point right? Well you won't get that from the self-storage firms. Getting your stuff to the facility is YOUR problem by all accounts.
That's where we differ from the big names: We've come up with an off-shoot of our very popular MoveCube® and called it a StoreCube™. A StoreCube™ is a container inside a trailer that is brought to your home for loading. Once you've loaded the cube to suit your needs, we'll then take it away to our nearest branch of self-storage units. If you require your boxes to be returned just call to arrange a time and we'll return your items to your door. You'll never have to visit a self-storage facility again. And because we are an international firm, we can offer cheap storage units across the globe.
The StoreCube™ is also on hand for when you want to move abroad but need a place to store your belongings in the interim. So if you're moving from London to Sydney but you're not ready to move into your new place in Oz, Seven Seas Worldwide will put your belongings in storage until the time is right.
