Nigeria is home to several international oil corporations, which attract a large proportion of expats. English is the official language, which makes adjusting to your new home a lot easier. There are plenty of beautiful sights in Nigeria and Nigerians are known for their friendliness. Infrastructure in some parts the country isn't fully developed, and power outages can be common. This won't stop you from enjoying Nigerian life, though. The food is delicious and there are many entertainment and cultural attractions to be explored.
When you ship your belongings to Nigeria, make sure to choose the right container size. A 20-foot container will hold the contents of a 3-bedroom house; a 40-foot container will hold these plus a vehicle. A 40-foot container is also suitable for the contents of a 4- or 5-bedroom house.
In general a car will fit into a 20ft container. You will also need to consider quarantine and tax charges usually levied on importing vehicles.
