Shipping Container Costs to Tallahassee, United States of America

Located in the southeastern portion of America, Florida is best known for its tropical weather, vacation spots and stunning beaches. The state's capital is Tallahassee and it's the centre for trade and agriculture for the entire state. The name Tallahassee comes from its strong Native American roots and means "Old Land" or "Old Town". The city boasts a rich Native American and Spanish heritage, as well. The city is home to the Florida State University and it’s extremely popular football team, The Seminoles. There's much more to the University than football though, as it is the regional centre for scientific research. Tallahassee is home to the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory, the largest and highest powered magnetic lab in the world, where they focus on physics, biology, chemistry, geochemistry and biochemistry. Expats can expect hot and humid summers in Tallahassee, with heavy rain and the occasional thunderstorm. But the city also has short and mild winters, making it possible to enjoy the area’s many outdoor activities. Before you prepare to make the move, here's a guide to determine the best way to transport your belongings to your new home in Tallahassee. If you're moving from a 4 or 5-bedroom house or a 3-bedroom house, plus a car, then a 40-foot shipping container will suit your moving needs. If you're moving from a 3-bedroom and don't need to transport a car, then a 20-foot container will suffice. So, pack some shorts and prepare to bask in the Florida sun.
