“Keep Austin Weird” is the unofficial slogan for this Texas city. Austin has a thriving artistic base with a famous music scene, film industry and theatre community. It’s much more liberal and progressive than the rest of Texas (a State know for its conservative politics). Ever year, it is host to the South by Southwest Film/Music/Media Festival, which is a month long party that celebrates art and culture. There’s a large filmmaking contingent in the city that has drawn lots of film and television production, making Austin the “Hollywood of Texas”. It’s home to the University of Texas, the largest in the nation. UT feeds an amazing nightlife with bars and a famous music scene. Austin’s not only a great place to express yourself, it’s also a perfect place in which to raise a family, with affordable housing, great schools and safe neighbourhoods. University sports are king with the Longhorn football and basketball teams ranked as two of the best in the country. The public transportation is fantastic with a reliable bus system and a new light rail system. There are also ample bicycle paths that span the city, making it easy and healthy to navigate.

If you are moving the contents of a 3-bedroom house, a 20-foot container will serve you well. If you also want to take a car, then a 40-foot container is a better option, it can hold all of that, or the contents of a 4 or 5-bedroom house.
