Located in the heart of the Rocky Mountains, Denver is also known as the ìMile High Cityî because the city's elevation is one mile above sea level. This elevation leads to a variety in weather throughout the year. Summers are warm but not too hot, making it perfect to take advantage of the surrounding areas for outdoors activities, such as hiking, camping and fishing. Winters can be extremely cold, dropping as low as -30∞C, but this makes Denver perfect for skiing and winter sports, with 54 inches of snow each year. A big portion of Denver's economy is based on its central location, making it a distribution centre for the entire southwestern United States. Denver is home to the Newmont Mining Corporation, the second largest gold producer in the country and one of the largest in the world. Whether it's taking in a baseball or football game, a concert at the world famous Red Rocks Amphitheatre, checking out one of the city's many museums, cycling through the bike friendly streets, or just taking a walk in it's picturesque parks, Denver offers a wide variety of leisurely activities.
Getting all of your belongings all the way up to the ìMile High Cityî couldn't be easier. As a helpful guide, if you're moving the contents of a 3-bedroom house, a 20-foot shipping container should be ample, but if you're moving more than that, a 40-foot container may work better. It will hold either a 3-bedroom house plus a car, or the contents of a 4-5-bedroom house.
In general a car will fit into a 20ft container. You will also need to consider quarantine and tax charges usually levied on importing vehicles.
