Shipping Container Costs to China

If it is Chinese culture and history that you are craving, Beijing could just be the place for you. The city's history spans back over three millennia and Beijing stands today as China's political centre. At first many Westerners may find moving to Beijing somewhat of a culture shock, but the sheer size and intoxication of the city will make the adjustment well worth it. Locals can tuck into the delectable Beijing cuisine, with Peking Roast Duck perhaps being its most identifiable dish. The city has hosted several national and international sporting events, including the 2008 summer and Paralympic Games, which brings much attraction to Beijing. Expats will appreciate the Beijing Subway, which is among the busiest, most affordable and fastest transit systems in the world. Another of the city's highlights are the twenty nature reserves and the surrounding mountains that are home to several protected wildlife species including the red fox, Siberian weasel, leopard and roe deer.

Shipping your belongings to Beijing is not complicated but if you're not sure what size shipping container to use, here's a good rule of thumb: a 20-foot container could roughly hold the contents of a 3-bedroom house. If you need more space, a 40-foot container could hold the contents of a 4 or 5-bedroom house, or a family vehicle along with the contents of a 3-bedroom house.
