Located on the shores of Lake Michigan, Chicago is known as the ìWindy Cityî or ìSecond Cityî and is the centre of culture and art in the mid-west United States. It's also a major source of financial industry. The beauty of the architecture rivals anywhere in the country and the scenic cityscape is always a joy to experience. The city is well known for its sports teams including the Bears, Cubs, White Sox and Blackhawks, its active theatre scene and its restaurants. America is known for its decadent food and when Americans think of Chicago - they think of the Chicago deep-dish pizza. A must try for anyone living in the city. Chicago is a wonderful city in which to live, but make sure to pack some warm winter clothes because this windy city can get pretty cold.
If you're not sure how to transport your belongings to the Windy City, there is a variety of shipping container sizes that will suit any family. A 20-foot container will hold the contents of a 3-bedroom house and a 40-foot should hold that, plus a car. A 40-foot shipping container will also accommodate a 4 to 5-bedroom house if you don't need a car. Whichever size your choose, your move to Chicago will be swift and stress free.
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.
