Shipping Container Costs to Stockholm, Sweden

Stockholm is a city bursting with culture, history, beauty and so much more. This cosmopolitan city is the capital of Sweden, along with being the country’s most important location for politics, economics and media. Stockholm’s extensive history makes for some impressive architecture and landmarks, such as the Riddarholm Church, which is actually the city’s oldest building. Stockholm Palace is a stunning Baroque-style building and is the official residence of the Swedish Monarchy. With countless highly rated schools and universities, covering a broad range of subjects, prospective students will have a lot of great options to choose from. The Royal Dramatic Theatre, the Milliken Gallery and the world famous Nationalmuseum are just a few examples of the countless cultural offerings located in Stockholm. If you are relocating without a car, there is no need to worry, as the city offers a reliable and efficient public transportation system, which is made up of metros, railways, light rails, buses, trams and even bikes! Get swept up in the local festivities by joining in with one of Stockholm’s local events, such as the yearly Stockholm Jazz Festival or The Nobel Banquet at Stockholm City Hall. Amongst all your moving preparations, one vital thing to arrange is the shipping of your personal items. To transport the contents of a 4 or 5-bedroom house, or a 3-bedroom house along with a medium sized vehicle – you should use a 40-foot shipping container. However, if you are transporting the contents of a 3-bedroom house only, a 20-foot container should be plenty.
