Shipping Container Costs to Qatar

Many expats have found their new home in Doha, Qatar and with the city's spacious, luxury accommodation and relatively high salaries, it is easy to understand why. Qatar is located on the coast of the Persian Gulf and whilst expats may find the move somewhat of a culture shock, the expat community is small and very welcoming, so you'll have many friendly neighbours to help you settle in (in fact, expatriates make up the majority of Doha's population!). Doha is the economic centre of Qatar and most of the country's wealth is derived from oil and natural gas. The city values education and puts a lot of money into the educational system. You can choose from local public schools or international private schools, both with very high standards. Cars are the main mode of transportation in Qatar and although the traffic can be heavy and somewhat stressful, petrol is very cheap. Due to the 15th Asian Games, which were held in Doha in 2006, the city has several great sporting venues, including Hamad Aquatic Centre and the Thani bin Jassim Stadium. In order to ensure a smooth move to Doha, be sure to carefully arrange shipping your items. For those who aren't sure of what size shipping container to use, here's a gauge: A 40-foot container could hold the contents of a 4 or 5-bedroom house, or a 3-bedroom house plus a vehicle. Alternatively, a 20-foot container could be used to accommodate the contents of a 3-bedroom house.
