You can fill it with anything from bedding and bicycles to furniture and kitchen appliances. We even supply a free packing material starter pack to help you wrap your possessions securely!
Plus, our shipping company has been delivering reliable moving services for over 25 years, so you can trust your items are in safe hands.

Why choose the MoveCube® over other moving services?
MoveCube's® are a clever way to get your belongings from A to B. These sturdy and secure wooden crates come in three sizes. They are large enough to step into but small enough for us to park outside your home. Simply load the container within the set timeframe, complete the online forms and contact us for redelivery once it arrives at your chosen destination.
Aside from making the shipping process as effortless as possible, here are a few other ways the MoveCube® differs from traditional removals:
Once loaded, we seal the MoveCube® in front of you. We won't re-open it until it arrives at your new address unless a customs or quarantine inspection is required, which our trusted team will oversee and document.
No hidden fees:
We believe in 100% transparency. That's why our free online quote tool clearly itemises all our charges instead of hitting you with nasty surprise costs.
Pay in instalments:
Instead of charging one lump sum, we spread our costs over three affordable stages, making it easier for you to budget your move.
Amend your booking:
Our flexible removals allow you to change the size or number of MoveCubes® as long as you let us know a few working days before their arrival. Plus, we can send any items you can't fit into the container via our boxes and bags shipping service.
We control our global network:
We own depots in Asia, Europe, Africa, and North America, and even if we use a partner, they operate under our instruction. Our network controls the entire shipping process, from collection to delivery, so we can consistently deliver an excellent service.
We offer all international moves two weeks of free storage in both the origin and destination countries at our secure storage facilities.
We handle customs:
Thanks to our team's vast local knowledge, they'll complete the necessary quarantine and customs clearance procedures, so you don't have to worry.
Traditional moving services
The MoveCube® is a sole-use container. Other removals companies will often pack your personal effects with other households.
Many movers don't know or exclude destination charges from their quotes. However, as we manage the shipping process end-to-end, we explain all the fees before you book.
You'll have to pay the international mover in full, often weeks before they come to collect your shipment placing an added strain on your wallet.
Most removalists will charge you a penalty fee if you ask to amend a fixed quote, putting you in an expensive situation if your plans change.
One country only:
Typically, traditional movers are based in one country and will pass your belongings to an unknown agent when they reach the destination.
Once a company collects your shipment, it's unlikely you'll receive another update until it arrives. To provide peace of mind, we'll give you access to an online tracker so you can keep an eye on your goods.
Fill in forms at the destination:
Your shipment will pass to another moving company at the destination, where you'll have to complete the shipping documentation.

How much can you load into a MoveCube®?
Depending on your home's size, you'll likely need more than one MoveCube® to transport all your household items. Use the handy guide on the right to estimate how many you require.
We also use the number and size of MoveCubes® ordered to work out your loading and unloading timeslot. We'll notify you of this the night before the containers arrive:
- Small MoveCube®: 60 mins loading and 30 mins unloading
- Medium MoveCube®: 90 mins loading and 45 mins unloading
- Large MoveCube®: 120 mins loading and 60 mins unloading
Please contact our experienced team if you're still unsure how many containers you need. They speak several languages, including English, Thai, Mandarin, Cantonese and Afrikaans and are always happy to help.
On your MoveCube® collection and delivery days, one or two drivers will be present, depending on the country. Our drivers can offer advice and lend a trolly to help you transfer your containers. However, you are responsible for loading and unloading the MoveCube® within your timeslot. We strongly recommend that you ask friends and family for help.

FAQs about our MoveCube® removals service
Using our International MoveCube®, we can ship your household items to many countries worldwide. These include the UK, Australia, China, South Africa, Canada, Netherlands and many others.
Due to their size and weight, we transport our containers by land or sea, which is better for the planet and more cost-effective than air shipping. However, as transit times depend on the to and from address, please enter your details into our free online quote engine to find the most accurate timeframe.
To get an accurate cost for a MoveCube®, fill in our free instant quote form. Don't worry — it only takes a few minutes to complete! Plus, it breaks down the process step by step, giving you an overview of all the fees involved before you book.
Also, instead of asking you to pay one full payment upfront, we spread the cost of our services by charging in budget-friendly instalments. We offer a two-stage payment plan for domestic moves and, in most cases, a three-stage plan for overseas shipments.
If you're sending your personal effects overseas, please be aware that every country has a list of banned items you can't import. To avoid additional charges and delays, we recommend you read our Prohibited Goods page before you start packing.
I have no hesitation in recommending Seven Seas Worldwide. They arrived on time for every appointment; they provided guidance during loading to ensure the MoveCube® was properly packed; they stuck to shipping and delivery commitments. No breakages or damages, and all that for a better price too. Highly recommended.Kelvin
Seven Seas Worldwide has been amazing throughout our whole international move where we required transport for our goods. Their MoveCube® service was exactly what we needed, and Carl's personal service was exceptional. Thank you, Seven Seas!Janet
We would highly recommend Seven Seas Worldwide for transporting your goods when emigrating. Their staff were friendly and helpful both in South Africa and the UK. The online system works very well, and the helpline is always available. Our goods arrived on time and all intact.Michael
4 tips to help you prepare for a MoveCube® delivery
From the dreaded declutter to detangling the parcel tape, moving house can feel like one long chore, and it's easy for important tasks to get missed. To ensure everything goes to plan during the collection of a MoveCube®, follow these four steps:
Get packed before move day:
Keep your move running on schedule by packing your possessions in advance. Luckily, every MoveCube® order includes a few of the essential materials you'll need to securely wrap your items for their journey.
We also supply durable cardboard shipping boxes in both Large and Standard sizes and various specialist dimensions for uniquely shaped goods like surfboards and guitars.
Pay for parking permits:
Our driver will need a suitable spot to park their vehicle, preferably 20m from the entrance of the address. If parking requires a ticket, a licence from the local council or access to a gated community or loading bay, please arrange before the MoveCube's® arrival.
We also provide a trolley to help you move your effects from your home to the container, and our driver is always on hand to advise.
Ask friends and family for help:
The night before collection or delivery, we'll text you the driver's arrival time and your loading or unloading timeslot. Simplify the process by carrying the items you want to ship to the lobby or front of your building, ready for packing into the MoveCube®.
And don't forget — many hands make light work! So, call your contacts and ask if they can help you shift your goods in exchange for a drink or pizza.
Take care loading the MoveCube®:
Pack your belongings safely by placing the heaviest items, such as washing machines or sofas, in the centre of the container. Ensure everything is level and there aren't any gaps.
We recommend packing as much as possible into our cardboard boxes as these are easy to stack. Of course, you can use your own containers, but avoid flimsy fruit boxes, plastic crates, bin liners and laundry bags.
