The storage service you get from Seven Seas Worldwide is second to none. I used their mini-move service to get my stuff from home to my accommodation for university, and it went very smoothly. Everything was in great condition, and the communication with Seven Seas Worldwide was top-notch. I rang them up to see if I could get my items delivered earlier, and they were happy to oblige. The cost was reasonable, and there were no problems whatsoever with delivery/collection.



Our strong and reliable student storage boxes

We have created robust storage containers to protect your precious goods during bumpy journeys and long storage times. You can fill our double-walled cardboard storage boxes with most uni effects.

Our most popular containers for storage are Large and Standard (see underneath for dimensions). We recommend ordering more than you think you need. If you have any left over in brand-new condition, we'll take them away for free. Specially-shaped containers made from the same materials are available for large items such as guitars and bicycles.

You can use your own storage containers. But please avoid laundry bags, plastic crates and bin liners, as they could break and damage the rest of your belongings. We recommend using a professional packing service to securely pack your belongings. Otherwise, take it slow and closely follow our helpful packing guides
