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.

The UK's decision to leave the EU has sent shock waves throughout the world and the unprecedented number of people who attended the recent Down Under Live expo brought into sharp focus that emigration to Australia and New Zealand is quickly becoming the solution for many.
The New Zealand government, wary that the number of new migrants has been growing substantially over the last few years, has announced that it will be implementing changes to reduce these numbers. However the numbers will not drop dramatically as plans reveal that over the next two years, the projected figure of 100,000 new residents will be brought down to around 95,000. Instead of reaching the target of 140 points to obtain residency, candidates will now require 160. The most notable reduction is the 5500 places held in reserve for families which has now been cut down to 2000. The government has suggested their decision to implement these new directives has been based purely on the issue of balance ensuring that skilled homegrown workers are fairly reflected in the employment market.
In addition to this news, the government has also announced that South Africans visiting New Zealand will need a visa from this November, as a result of the growing number of fraudulent South African passports discovered this year.
These new rules are believed by experts to be the start of a greater shift towards stricter controls over immigration in New Zealand, with Australia taking a similar stance. Therefore if you are considering a new life abroad in either New Zealand or Australia, Seven Seas Worldwide recommends making a decision sooner rather than later: Do the research, ask the questions, establish if a move abroad is right for you at this time.
A decision like this is not to be taken lightly, but if you take too long to make it, you may find your opportunity to take up residency has been taken away from you anyway. Take a look at the range of services Seven Seas Worldwide has to offer. Get a free quote within minutes, and let's start your journey today!

We perhaps should point out that you can only visit these islands if you've been invited, of course. You won't be able to just row up to the shore of Leonardo DiCaprio's Blackadore Caye and ask him to fix you a cocktail. However, if you find yourself in a position to rub shoulders with the rich, the famous and the moderately-talented, here are the remote paradisical locations you should book a ticket for.
10) Musha Cay (below). If you have $37,500 to spare, you can hire Musha Cay from David Copperfield for one day. Yes, that's just for one day. Musha Cay is one of the magician's four islands in the Bahamas. Reports say he paid $50 million for all of them - and the reason he purchased the other three was because they surrounded Musha Cay, thus making Musha Cay more private than virtually every other private island in the world!
9) Necker Island. David Copperfield's rental price for Musha Cay is a snip compared to Richard Branson's fee of $47,000 a day at his resort on Necker Island with its whiter than white sandy beaches, coral reef and 360 degree views from its ten luxury rooms.
8) Mago Island. Oscar-winning actor and controversy magnet Mel Gibson bought Mago Island in Fiji's Lau Group of islands back in 2005 for a mere $15 million, a purchase which has been opposed by descendants of Mago's native inhabitants. It's also a volcanic island. Say what you want about Mel, he likes a challenge.
7) Rooster Cay (below). Do you remember the end of Trading Places when Eddie Murphy is seen relaxing on a beach on a tropical island? That's pretty much his life now. Only he's 30 years older and his films aren't funny anymore. Yes, Mr Murphy, reportedly one of the highest paid actors in Hollywood, owns Rooster Cay in the Bahamas and he only needed to fork out $15 million for it.
6) Little Halls Pond Cay. What a quaint name for a vast, $3.6 million island in the Bahamas. Johnny Depp supposedly paid this amount for back in 2004 after wrapping up filming on the first Pirates of the Caribbean film. He recently chose to have his wedding here with Bromley Civic Centre registry office coming a close second, apparently.
The Top 5 will be coming shortly. In the meantime, if you're an international jet-setter with a private island, why not check out the rest of the site to see if we can help you with your luggage?
Please note: Our services are also available for those who don't own their own private islands.

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.
