Moving abroad with the MoveCube®
Seven Seas Worldwide has been in the moving business since 1996 operating our own secure global network for sending excess baggage, personal belongings and household items.
Our International MoveCube® service moves the contents of your home as safely and efficiently as possible whilst offering enormous flexibility so you can tailor the service to your needs.
A step-by-step guide to our MoveCube® relocation service
You need to decide what you want to send. We strongly recommend decluttering before you send anything
You need to decide when you want to move. If you are selling your flat or house, do you need to downsize the contents of your home before people come to view the property? Then perhaps you need to place the items into storage before being relocated.
You need to be clear where you are going. Initially a destination town or city should be enough for the purposes of a quote and placing your order. If you are moving abroad then we will eventually need a destination address.
You can generate a quote by entering the “from” and “to” details and the size of MoveCube® you need. We would recommend that you also speak to our advisers who will explain the process and your options.
If you decide that you want to proceed then the first activity to be scheduled is the delivery of the Starter Pack. This is included in the price.
We recommend that you are present at the delivery to allow the driver to check your address for access of the MoveCube® vehicles and to discuss with you where you would like the MoveCube®s positioned for loading.
We do recommend that you take the time to consider purchasing packing boxes and materials from us to allow you to prepare for the arrival of those MoveCube®s you have been quoted. Boxes and packing materials are delivered at the time as the Starter Pack.
You can book online or call us if you have any questions. You will receive the scheduled arrival time of your MoveCube®s the evening before.
The driver is on a schedule to attend other jobs and needs to leave on or about the end of that allocated time.
Your shipment should already be packed and ready on the ground floor and less than 20 metres/66 feet from the agreed location of the MoveCube®s. You will have been allocated a time to load - depending on the number and size of your MoveCube®s.
Subject to availability, you can have one MoveCube® delivered on one day, two MoveCube®s delivered on consecutive days or four MoveCube®s delivered over a fortnight, whatever fits your needs!
Once all your MoveCube®s are loaded, they will be relocated to our export hub where the shipment will be prepared for dispatch.
You then complete the necessary shipping documentation.
Then pay the Shipping and Transport charge.
You will be notified of the shipping details once it has been dispatched and you can track its progress online.
The online documentation you have completed is then presented to the authorities at the destination country. This is usually Customs but can also include an environmental agency who protect the destination country’s flora and fauna.
Following the presentation of the documentation, there could be an inspection required by either agency.
Once your shipment has completed the importation process into your destination country, you will be contacted to pay the Destination Charges.
You will be contacted to arrange a day or days for the return of your possessions. You will receive a scheduled time the day before the date of delivery.
If you are not able to receive the shipment, we can hold your MoveCube®s until you are ready or deliver to a storage unit close to your new address.
We provide an International MoveCube® service to those moving their personal belongings overseas and a Domestic MoveCube® service for the shorter journey within the country: city to city or town to town. We'll be in control from start to finish.
Packed one suitcase too many? Taking extra items with you such as a musical instrument or sports equipment? Seven Seas Worldwide is also here for sending excess baggage overseas via our global shipping network. We're not just here for those moving abroad. We can be there for every eventuality.
"Great service for a fair price.Darren Paul Beukes
I really appreciate the little things about Seven Seas like the fact they will only charge you for any ordered boxes that you use, and will carefully package fragile goods like TVs and musical instruments. I loved that I could track my shipment online. Finally I want to point out that I needed to change my deliver address and Seven Seas were very accommodating!"
