Named after the third president of the United States, Thomas Jefferson, this Midwest City is the capital of Missouri and is one of the most beautiful places to live in America. One of Jefferson City’s many points of interest include the Missouri State Capitol, which at it’s highest point features a dome topped with an exquisite bronze statue of the Roman goddess Ceres. The building is also renowned for it’s architectural features, many statues and museum, which boasts several pieces of artwork and murals. Expats can take advantage of the city’s ‘Jefftran’ (Jefferson City Transit Authority), which runs a bus system open to the public that is easy to use and affordable. The weather is a blend between two different climates, resulting in hot summers with rainfall and cold winters, often with some light snow. The Missouri State Museum or the Cole County Historical Museum make for an exciting day out, or just simply hop on your bike and take advantage of the many bike trails around the city. Jefferson City will certainly offer a relaxing, laid back lifestyle, but before you set off for Missouri, you must arrange how to ship your items. If you haven’t been through the process of relocating before, don’t worry – we can offer assistance with this simple guide: A 20-foot container should house the items from inside a 3-bedroom house. A 40-foot container, however, should house the items from inside a 4 or 5-bedroom house, or a 3-bedroom house with room left over for 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.
