Shipping Container Costs to Adelaide, Australia

If you are looking for a relaxed, low-stress city that also benefits from Australia's trademark warm, sunny weather ñ look no further than Adelaide. Adelaide is the capital city of South Australia and is home to many government and financial institutions, many of them located in the city centre. Kangaroo Island is only a short ferry trip away, where you can enjoy natural wildlife such as koalas, wallabies, kangaroos and penguins. For the food and drink lovers among you, you'll be happy to know Adelaide is the wine capital of Australia and is internationally known for its spectacular vineyards. It's easy to see why this city is popular for expats. Everyone who has made that move to another country knows how important it is to secure the right shipping container. There are a few options in the way of shipping container sizes for those looking to move to Adelaide. Here's an idea of what size might be right for you: The contents of a 3-bedroom house or two small city-cars could fit into a 20-foot container. If you have more to ship, a 40-foot container could accommodate the items in a 3-bedroom house plus a vehicle, or a 4 to 5-bedroom house with room left for your surfboards and bikes.
