Easily one of Europe's most beautiful cities, Vienna is the capital and largest city in Austria. Culture and art have always been a huge part of the city's identity, having been the working home of musical geniuses including Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert and Brahms. There are several famous theatres, opera houses, museums and exquisite architecture to enjoy. Similarly to London, Vienna has an extensive train, tram and bus system, which makes navigating this culturally vibrant city very easy. Vienna is home to Austria's premier universities and colleges, as well as several private and international schools for expats to choose from. Moving to Vienna will also offer you a perfect central home from which to explore the rest of Europe's dazzling beauty.
But before you get ready to make that move to the majestic city of Vienna, there are many things to consider, including shipping. Shipping your belongings should be a smooth process and here's a guide for choosing the right size container: A 20-foot container could hold the contents of a 3-bedroom house, whilst a 40-foot container would be better for a 4 to 5-bedroom house. The same 40-foot container could also be suitable for the contents of a 3-bedroom house, including a vehicle.
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.
