I was looking for a fairly-cheap-but-definitely-reliable service to store my belongings at over the summer. Seven Seas Worldwide was my first choice, and I am very happy to use their services. The SMS message about time allocation for the delivery and pick-up of my items allowed me to organise my time well for the big days. My belongings came back to me undamaged (including the plates and glasses I was most worried about!). I had to change my delivery date, and thanks to great customer service, this could be arranged with a single call and a click. I recommend this company to anyone seeking storage for short and long periods of time!
