Shipping Container Costs to China

Shanghai is China's financial centre and is also known for having the world's busiest container port. The city offers several different types of accommodation, including modern high-rise developments, suburban neighbourhoods and older, deluxe houses. Although traffic can be heavy, the city boasts an extensive, easy to use public transport system consisting of buses, metros and taxis. Fashion, art and cinema are a big part of the city's culture, offering expats an exciting environment in which to live. Shop-a-holics will be in their element, as the city has countless shopping centres and outlets to meet all your retail needs. Residents can also escape the metropolis by enjoying the many parks and gardens that are open to the public for free.

Before you make the move to Shanghai, it's essential to make sure you pick the right size shipping container, based on your individual needs. Here's a rough guide for you to follow: a 20-foot container could hold the contents of a 3-bedroom house, whilst a 40-foot container could hold the contents of a 4 to 5-bedroom house. If you are also moving a vehicle, such as a car, along with the contents of a 3-bedroom house, a 40-foot container should be the better choice. You'll be ready for Shanghai before you know it!
