Amongst your moving preparations, it is essential to figure out how to transport your belongings to your new home. A 20-foot shipping container could hold the contents of a 3-bedroom house, with some room remaining for the kid’s bikes. If you have more to move, a 40-foot container is another option, which could hold the contents of a 4 or 5-bedroom house, or a 3-bedroom house in addition to a family car.
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.
