If you are in search of a city that offers culture, nightlife, history and beautiful scenery – look no further than Amsterdam. As the capital and most populous city in the Netherlands, Amsterdam is one of the most visited places in Europe. One of the city’s most recognisable features are the many canals that run through Amsterdam and you can enjoy exploring the area by embarking on a relaxing canal boat tour. (You can even hire your own boat if you prefer!). Learning about Amsterdam’s rich history and culture is made possible by the many museums located within the city, including the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh Museum, which are all situated within Museum Square (Museumplien). The city’s oceanic climate means that the summers and winters are both moderate in temperature, although it can get rainy and cloudy from October through to March. Amsterdam is the Netherland’s centre of business and finance and is home to the world’s oldest stock exchange – the Amsterdam Stock Exchange. From restaurants, bars and theatres to museums, parks and local markets – Amsterdam is sure to excite and entertain people from all walks of life. Preparing to relocate can be daunting, but with the right preparation – it is sure to be smooth sailing. In terms of shipping container size, two options are available: A 40-foot container, which could hold the contents of a 4 or 5-bedroom house, or the contents of a 3-bedroom house in addition to a car. A 20-foot container could hold items from a 3-bedroom house, with some extra room for your lawnmower or the kid’s bikes.
