The state capital of California is not Los Angeles or San Francisco, but it is in fact ìAmerica's Most Diverse Cityî - Sacramento. Located in the centre of California, Sacramento is home to several universities including the world-renowned research hospital, UC Davis Medical Center. Being the state's capital, the top employer in the city is the government. With a reputation for locally grown food, Sacramento is home to many fine restaurants. The city boasts an extensive and renowned park system, making it perfect for families. The climate in the city is damp and mild in the winter months and hot and dry in the summer. Located in a basin, Sacramento is right between the wine country to the west and the Redwood Forrest to the east. With its beautiful scenery, expats from Britain should feel right at home here.
If you're moving to Sacramento, there's an easy way to figure out what you'll need. In a 20-foot shipping container you will be able to fit the contents of a 3-bedroom house. If you have more, a 40-foot container should be able to accommodate a 4 or 5-bedroom house. A 40-foot container should also be large enough to accommodate a car, along with the contents of a 3-bedroom house.
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.
