The Netherlands is known for its open and diverse society, making it easy for immigrants to adjust to their new home. Despite its dense population, the country welcomes expats and offers a number of work opportunities. If you're an arts and culture lover you will enjoy exploring the country's many art museums and discovering emerging artists.
Shipping your belongings to the Netherlands should be a simple process. You can choose from two kinds of shipping containers a 20-foot container or a 40-foot one. A 20-foot container will hold the contents of a 3-bedroom house. If you're taking your car with you, you should go for a 40-foot container. A 40-foot container is also perfect 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.
