Shipping Container Costs to Saint Paul, United States of America

Situated on the east bank of the stunning Mississippi River is the city of Saint Paul, which is the capital of Minnesota. People throughout the U.S. may think of snow when they think of Minnesota and Saint Paul is no exception with its very cold, snowy winters and hot, humid summers. The city is also known to experience thunderstorms, fog and tornadoes. One of the city’s many popular attractions is the Como Park Zoo and Conservatory, which houses several incredible species of animal, such as arctic foxes, bison, lemurs, polar bears and snow leopards. (There’s also a carousel, a golf course and plenty of exotic, beautiful gardens!). Ecolab is one of several big corporations that have their headquarters in Saint Paul and companies such as these offer countless jobs in the private sector for the city’s residents. Sports fans will love spending their weekends at the Xcel Energy Center, which is the home of the National Hockey League’s Minnesota Wild. The city also has an independent league baseball team, soccer team, roller derby team and many more professional and semi-professional sports teams. But before you pull on your ice hockey jersey and purchase your season tickets, you’ll need to figure out how to ship your items to your new home of Saint Paul. A 40-foot container should accommodate the contents of a 4 or 5-bedroom house, or the contents of a 3-bedroom house along with a medium sized vehicle, such as a car. A 20-foot container option is also available, which can accommodate the contents of a 3-bedroom house only.
