Those of you who have moved before will know how important it is that you figure out how to move your belongings to your new home. Follow our simple gauge to help you choose your size of shipping container: If you are moving the contents of a 4 or 5-bedroom house, or the contents of a 3-bedroom house plus a vehicle, you should choose a 40-foot container. If you have less to move, a 20-foot container could be used to house the items from inside a 3-bedroom house, with some room left over for your lawnmower or bikes.
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.
