On the Move? Picking the Right Company for the Job

Moving excess baggage and personal belongings from city-to-city, country-to-country requires precise planning. So what should you be looking out for when hiring a company to transport your items?

Always receive a quote that clearly states the details of the job and defines the charges: Beware of additional charges in the small print! Does the price include boxes, packing materials, collection and delivery charges? We guarantee that we won’t sting you with hidden costs. Or total price includes:

- Packing boxes

- Bubble wrap and parcel tape

- Delivery of empty boxes to pack

- Collection of the packed boxes

- Delivery of those boxes to you new address


Make sure you can speak to someone. Does the company have a telephone number for questions, problems or complaints?


Plus if you use the phone line are you paying for the call? Some companies are known to make a profit from customer calls which mean you could be left hanging on the line for some time. Seven Seas Worldwide can be reached 24 hours a day, 7 days a week on freephone 0800 216 698.


Make sure the company you use knows how to move personal belongings. Some transport contractors agree to move all sorts of items which mean they might not have the necessary experience of handling consignments such as yours.


Seven Seas Worldwide specialise in moving and handling personal effects.

We have our own network of depots across the UK and throughout the world to ensure a safe and reliable service that collects and delivers.

Check out how long your chosen company has been in business. Courier and delivery companies tend to come and go, particularly in the recent economic climate. Seven Seas Worldwide have been in business since 1996 and continue to grow as a global force each year.

Remember if the prices are too good to be true they probably are.
