Prepare to take in the beautiful scenery and embrace an adventurous lifestyle, but before that, you’ll need to figure out the shipping of your personal items. We can help those who haven’t relocated in the past with this simple guide: A 40-foot container should house the contents of a 4 or 5-bedroom house, or the contents from a 3-bedroom house, plus a vehicle. If you have less to move, a 20-foot container is also an option, which can accommodate items from inside a 3-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.
