Shipping Container Costs to Moscow, Russia

The immensely compelling city of Moscow is the capital of Russia and is known throughout the world for its vast size and fascinating, lengthy history. Moscow is Russia's centre of politics, science, economics and culture and is also the most populous city in the country. Russia is world famous for its excellence in the arts and Moscow is home to many fine establishments of this kind, including the Tretyakov Art Gallery, the Pushkin Museum of Fine Arts and not forgetting the highly respected Bolshoi Ballet. The metro is one of the best public transit systems in the city. It is clean, efficient and cheap and you'll be stunned at the beautiful, marble-faced metro stations. Summers in Moscow are usually hot and humid, and the winters can get very cold, so be sure to pack your furs and be prepared to bundle up. Whilst English is often spoken in Moscow, there are many places in the city where expats can learn to speak and read Russian, which is advisable. The city has a vibrant nightlife, offering many bars, restaurants and clubs. Moving to Moscow will prove to be an exciting, interesting adventure for you and your family. Shipping your belongings to Moscow should be much easier than getting through the city's cold winters. For those who need assistance with choosing a shipping container size, here's a simple guide: a 40-foot container should hold the items in a 4 or 5-bedroom house, or a 3-bedroom house plus a family car. If you have less to move, a 20-foot container should hold the items from a 3-bedroom house.
