Shipping Container Costs to Boise City, United States of America

Located on the beautiful plains of northwestern America is the small and welcoming city of Boise, the capital of Idaho. Boise is a great place to raise a family, as it has a very low crime rate and is consistently rated as one of the safest cities to live in the United States. In the nearby Boise River, there is much opportunity for swimming, rafting and fishing and just 16 miles away, there's the Bogus Basin skiing area for winter months. For the most part, the city's economy is based on technology investments, high-tech industries and small businesses. With only 214,000 people, there is a small town feel compared to many other U.S. cities, but there are still a wide variety of neighbourhoods and places for expats to call home within the city. With its arid climate, there is little rainfall throughout the year and the summer months are hot and dry with the winters being colder. Boise is known as the region's cultural hub, offering theatre, jazz and indie music, bringing in visitors from hundreds of miles around to enjoy its many festivals and celebrations.

As you ready yourself for a move to Boise, here are a few helpful tips to make sure you have what you'll need to transport your belongings. If you're moving from a 3-bedroom house, a 20-foot shipping container should accommodate all of your belongings. If you have more, the 40-foot container will hold all of that, plus the family car, or the contents of a 4 or 5-bedroom house.
