With its wondrous architecture, distinguished culture and easy to find, affordable housing, it's no wonder many expats find their new home in the vibrant city of Montreal. Originally named 'Ville-Marie', Montreal is the largest city in the Canadian province of Quebec, with around 60% of its residents speaking French, which is the city's official language. Residents of Montreal can benefit from Canada's health care and education systems, which are rated as some of the best in the world. The summers are hot and humid and the winters usually bring chilly, icy weather. With it's most popular sport being ice hockey, sport fans will no doubt get wrapped up in fandom of Montreal's professional hockey team ìthe Montreal Canadiensî - just remember to pack your jerseys!
Before you tuck into your poutine (Quebec's signature food) you should decide on what size shipping container would be right for you to move your belongings. Don't worry, we can help! A 40-foot container could be the right choice for the contents of a 4 to 5-bedroom house. However, if you are moving the contents of a 3-bedroom house plus an item such as a car, then a 20-foot container could be a better option.
In general a car will fit into a 20ft container - If you're taking a larger family vehicle with you, a 40-foot container is a better option. You will also need to consider quarantine and tax charges usually levied on importing vehicles.
