Get swept up in the local festivities by joining in with one of Stockholm’s local events, such as the yearly Stockholm Jazz Festival or The Nobel Banquet at Stockholm City Hall. Amongst all your moving preparations, one vital thing to arrange is the shipping of your personal items. To transport the contents of a 4 or 5-bedroom house, or a 3-bedroom house along with a medium sized vehicle – you should use a 40-foot shipping container. However, if you are transporting the contents of a 3-bedroom house only, a 20-foot container should be plenty.
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.
