Shipping Container Costs to Lisboa (Lisbon), Portugal

The stunning city of Lisbon is one of the most beautiful locations on the planet, as well as being recognised as a world city due to its significance in media, entertainment, finance, trade, commerce and tourism. As well as being Portugal’s capital city, Lisbon is also one of the oldest cities in the world and has many historical landmarks to prove it. Dating back to the 12th century, the Lisbon Cathedral is a must-see landmark, along with iconic buildings such as the Praça do Comércio and the Igreja do Carmo. The city’s Mediterranean climate makes it a very appealing location for both expats and tourists - with warm, rain-free summers and mild, comfortable winters. Lisbon is brimming with culture, from museums and galleries, to gardens and festivals. The Monsanto Forest Park is Lisbon’s largest park and is a popular place to discover the city’s natural surroundings. Travelling around the city is extremely easy thanks to Lisbon’s highly efficient public transport system, which consists of trams, buses, ferries and trains. Spend a glamorous evening out at the city’s opera house, the Teatro Nacional de São Carlos, or indulge at one of the many highly rated restaurants and wine bars. But before you prepare to bask in Lisbon’s beauty, you should carefully arrange the shipping of your household and personal goods. If you need to ship the contents of a 3-bedroom house, a 20-foot shipping container would be the appropriate size. If you have more to ship, for example the contents of a 4 or 5-bedroom house, or a 3-bedroom house along with a car, a 40-foot container would be more suitable.
