The origins of the United States trace back to Philadelphia and the vibrant history is a beacon of pride for the city. It's where America's founding fathers gathered to sign the Declaration of Independence. Philadelphia has a thriving business community, as home to the headquarters of several Fortune 500 companies and it's just as rich in culture with several notable art museums. Known as the ìCity of Brotherly Loveî, Philadelphia is a great place to catch a baseball, football or hockey game or run up the same museum steps Sylvester Stallone made famous in the film 'Rocky'. The city is consistently rated as one of the best walking cities in America and is very easy to navigate. If you fancy a change from walking around the city, the public transport system is excellent. Don't forget to enjoy the city's trademark sandwich, the ìPhilly Cheesesteakî. Before moving to Philly, there are several things you will need to plan, shipping being one of them. If you're not sure which shipping container size to go for when you move to Philadelphia, just remember that the contents of a 3-bedroom house will fit into a 20-foot container and those of a 4 or 5-bedroom house will fit into a 40-foot container. A 40-foot container should also be able to accommodate a car with the contents of a 3-bedroom home.
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.
