Shipping Container Costs to Masqat (Muscat), Oman

Muscat is the capital city of Oman and has long been a very important trading port between the East and the West. Situated on the coast of the Arabian Sea, Muscat has a vast history that stretches back thousands of years. Expats moving to Muscat should be aware of the hot, desert climate. The summers are very long and hot and even the winters are quite warm, so you won’t be requiring your winter jackets here! The city features some incredible architecture and landmarks, such as the Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque, which is considered the city’s main building of worship. If you’re interested in learning about the city’s fascinating history, you can visit the National Museum of Oman or the Bait al-Baranda. Oman’s economy is mainly derived from trade and Muscat is no exception to this. The city exports goods such as mother of pearls, fish and dates, as well as being home to Oman’s principle stock exchange. Muscat’s number one venue for performing arts is The Royal Opera House. Although this spectacular venue is relatively new, it has already attracted several famous performers, such as Plácido Domingo, Yo-Yo Ma and Andrea Bocelli. The city’s coastal location means you can take advantage of many sun kissed afternoons at Qantab Beach and maybe even take out a boat to enjoy the calm, relaxing waves. Before relocating to this exotic city, you should arrange the shipping of your personal goods. Two shipping container sizes are available: A 40-foot container, which could hold the contents of a 4 or 5-bedroom house, or a 3-bedroom house, along with a car. Or, a 20-foot container, which could be used to move items from a 3-bedroom house, with some room remaining for a bike or two.
