All sorts of things happen at Christmas: you wear silly paper hats out of boredom; you eat and drink too much, and watch too much television. If you are shipping your car or any of your possessions overseas, those are the films you must avoid at all cost – or risk sleepless nights over whether your beloved vehicle is lying at the bottom of the sea!

The Perfect Storm

Starring George Clooney, this story inspired by true events relates the last expedition of a commercial fishing boat. Colossal waves and fragile-looking ships can only remind you of how powerless we are in front of Nature.

Surface

A well-kept secret, this gripping TV Series follows a marine biologist as she uncovers a conspiracy to breed genetically-engineered sea monsters living in the depths of the oceans. They are gigantic, heal themselves, they can electrocute you and they are amphibians. The seas are not safe, especially not the ship your belongings are on, which would be nothing more than a snack to them.

Titanic

A story that needs no introduction: when the unthinkable happens, when the unsinkable sinks. The moral of this tale is that no boat is unsinkable. Did you organise marine insurance?!

Captain Phillips

Also inspired by true events, this compassionate story follows the ordeal of the crew on a merchant ship hijacked by Somali pirates in 2009. Forget about rough weather, your possessions are facing much more dangerous threats!

Yes, we know, by some perverse psychological process, we love scary movies. But when your whole life is packed in boxes on a ship, be wise and stay away from sea disaster movies until you are reunited with your beloved belongings. Or be prepared for anxiety-induced sleepless nights!
