Great experience with Seven Seas Worldwide. The online support was efficient and user-friendly. I was able to book a collection and submit my documentation with ease on the information provided. The team were extremely helpful and pleasant. I highly recommend Seven Seas Worldwide.



What storage boxes and packing materials do we provide?

It's incredible how many new things students acquire over the year without realising it! For this reason, we have created double-walled, chemically-strengthed cardboard boxes designed to protect all your student effects, such as textbooks, folders and precious memorabilia.

See below for the precise dimensions of our Large and Standard storage boxes. You can order as many boxes as you need, and we'll collect any leftover containers (as long as they are in unused condition) from your London address, for free. We also provide boxes made from the same expert materials when preparing larger items for collection, such as musical instruments and sports equipment, if needed.

Alternatively, if you want to use your own containers, please avoid laundry bags, plastic crates, used food boxes and bin liners, as they are liable to break and could easily damage the rest of your stuff.
