Austria is a study in contrasts. One part of the country is made up of the Alps, making winters in that part severe, while the other half is covered in lush forests, making for a milder climate. Moving to Austria will give you an excellent base from which to explore the rest of Europe, with its central location and terrific transport system.
If you can't decide which shipping container to use when you move to Austria, use this simple gauge: A 20-foot container can hold the contents of a 3-bedroom house; a 40-foot container can accommodate the contents of a 4- or 5-bedroom house. A 40-foot container is also suitable for the contents of a 3-bedroom house, plus a vehicle.
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.
