The easiest part of moving will be finding the right size shipping container to move everything you'll be bringing with you. If you're moving enough for a 4 or 5-bedroom house or a 3-bedroom house plus a car, then a 40-foot shipping container will be your best option. If you don't have that much to move and are simply moving the contents of a 3-bedroom house, then a 20-foot container will suit your needs. However much you bring, you are sure to love your new home in Indianapolis.
