Sevens Seas Worldwide are very professional, and we had no trouble at all with our storage and delivery. The instructions were clear, and the online portal was easy to use and efficient. The delivery of packing materials and the pick-up and delivery of boxes all happened exactly as scheduled, and a 1-hour window was provided. All contents were returned in excellent condition. I couldn't recommend Seven Seas Worldwide more highly for storage needs.



What boxes do we provide students?

We offer robust containers designed to protect your possessions during long storage periods. Our chemically-strengthened boxes have plenty of room for most student effects, such as textbooks and kitchenware.

Our most popular storage boxes are Large and Standard (see dimensions below). Order more than you need, and we'll collect any empty containers left over in brand-new condition for free. Specially-shaped cardboard boxes made from the same top-quality materials are available for sports equipment and musical instruments.

You can use your own containers. But please avoid laundry bags, plastic crates, food boxes and bin liners, as they break easily and could damage the rest of your belongings. Consider a packing service to help wrap and pack all your possessions. Otherwise, give yourself lots of of time and follow our handy packing guides
