Known as the ìCity of Oaksî due to the many oak trees surrounding the city streets, Raleigh is the capital of North Carolina, a state located in the south east portion of the United States. Many historical buildings and landmarks can be found in Downtown Raleigh, including the Haywood Hall House and Gardens, Historic Oakwood Cemetery and Mordecai Historic Park. Raleigh's economy is very strong, with job opportunities in industries such as pharmaceutical, medical, clothing, banking, finance and electronic and telecommunications equipment. The city is brimming with culture and entertainment and is home to organisations such as the Carolina Ballet and the North Carolina Symphony. The North Carolina Museum of Art is one of the country's leading art museums and offers a stunning permanent art collection, from Egyptian and European to African and Contemporary art. Expats can travel via Raleigh's daily Amtrak train to other popular cities, such as Washington, D.C., Philadelphia, New York City and Miami. In Raleigh, the opportunities are endless!
Deciding on how to spend a night out in the city may be difficult, but the process of moving your belongings to Raleigh will not. We've prepared a guide in order to help you decide what size shipping container to use: A 40-foot container should be used to move the contents of a 4 or 5-bedroom house, or the contents of a 3-bedroom house along with a medium sized car. A 20-foot container should be used to move the items from inside a 3-bedroom house only.
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.
