Shipping Container Costs to Baton Rouge, United States of America

On the eastern bank of the Mississippi River, you'll find the dynamic city of Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Baton Rouge acts as Louisiana's political centre, as well as being prominent in motion picture, medicine, research, industry and technology. There is a big student population in the city, due to there being several universities and colleges in the area, such as Louisiana State University and Our Lady of the Lake College. Expats may find they need time to adjust to the weather in Baton Rouge. Whilst the winters are mild, the summers are humid and hot with heavy rainfall, very strong winds and tornadoes, which are known to occur throughout the year. As with many places in the United States, the main mode of transportation is a car and traffic can often get heavy. Learn about the state's culture and history by visiting one of the city's exciting museums, one of which is the Capitol Park Museum. Baton Rouge is a melting pot of several different nationalities and cultures, so expats relocating to the city will feel very welcome indeed. One of the many things you need to arrange before making your move is the shipping of your personal items. As far as shipping container size goes, you have two options available. The first is a 40-foot container, which can hold either the contents of a 3-bedroom house and a car, or the contents of a 4 or 5-bedroom house. The second option is a 20-foot container, which can hold items from inside a 3-bedroom house.
