But before you pull on your ice hockey jersey and head on down to the Kohl Center, you must figure out how to ship your items to your new home. Those of you who are unsure on what size shipping container to use, here's a simple guide for you to follow: The contents of a 3-bedroom house should fit nicely inside a 20-foot container, whereas the contents of a 4 or 5-bedroom house would be better suited to a 40-foot container. A 40-foot container could also accommodate the belongings from inside a 3-bedroom house, along with 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.
