Shipping Container Costs to Oslo, Norway

The cosmopolitan city of Oslo is filled with history, culture and endless beauty. Not only is Oslo the capital and most populous city in Norway, but it is also the country’s most important location for government and economy. This global city attracts expats from all around the world and is one of Europe’s fastest growing cities. The Oslo Opera House, the Royal Palace and Akershus Fortress are just a handful of the incredible landmarks within the city that showcase Oslo’s diverse range of architecture, not to mention its vast history. Prospective students will have plenty of choice here, as the city is home to many schools and universities, such as the University of Oslo, Oslo National Academy of Arts and the BI Norwegian Business School. As a culturally rich city, Oslo is teeming with museums, galleries and theatres. There are also several exciting festivals throughout the year, including the Oslo Jazz Festival and The Oslo Chamber Music Festival. Travelling around this modern city could not be easier, thanks to the city’s efficient public transport system, which is made up of trams and railways. (You can even rent a city bike to explore the city!) You are sure to love your new home of Oslo, but before you make the move, it’s essential to prepare the shipping of your household goods. In terms of shipping container sizes, two options are available: A 20-foot container, which could hold the belongings from a 3-bedroom home, or a 40-foot container, which could house the contents of a 4 or 5-bedroom house. The same 40-foot container could hold the contents of a 3-bedroom house, along with a medium sized car.
