Shipping Container Costs to Frankfort, United States of America

Nestled alongside the Kentucky River, in the state of Kentucky, is the city of Frankfort. When you think of Kentucky, the word “bourbon” may spring to mind, and Frankfort is home to several primary distilleries of Kentucky Bourbon, including the very popular Buffalo Trace. The weather is usually hot and humid in the summer months and milder in the winter months, with rainfall being prominent throughout the summer. Kentucky State University, which was founded in 1886, is located in Frankfort and is situated in the downtown area of the city. Cover Spring Park, the Kentucky State Capitol Rose Garden and the Floral Clock are just a few examples of the city’s natural beauty and will be immensely enjoyed by nature lovers. A famous historical landmark in Frankfort is The Old Governor’s Mansion, which was built in 1798 and boasts a beautiful garden for visitors to enjoy. The city offers a diverse range of cuisine, from traditional American to Japanese and Thai, giving expats several choices for a night out.

Before you order your Buffalo Trace on the rocks, you’ll need to figure out the shipping of your household belongings. If you’re unsure of what size you will need, we’ve created a simple guide for you to follow: For the contents of a 3-bedroom house, a 20-foot shipping container would be the right size. If you’re moving more, such as the contents of a 4 or 5-bedroom house, or a 3-bedroom house with a family car, you should go with a 40-foot container instead.
