Lagos is one of Africa’s fastest growing cities, along with being Nigeria’s most populous city. Be prepared to reach for your raincoat, as Lagos experiences a lot of rain, with April-July bringing the largest amount. Despite the rain, the city keeps a somewhat consistent temperature year-round, which, on average, is around 25 °C. Lagos is known for its thriving music scene, with a variety of music styles originating from this city, such as afrobeat, juju and Nigerian hip-hop. Due to the city’s extensive road network, the city’s most popular mode of transportation is the car, although plans to extend the city’s currently limited public transport system are already underway. Culture vultures will enjoy the museums that are located in this Nigerian city, including the Nike Art Gallery and the fascinating National Museum, as well as Freedom Park cultural centre. Take a day trip to Lekki Conservation Centre for your chance to spot some crocodiles, lizards, monkeys and many other types of exciting wildlife. Relocating to a new city can be overwhelming, but we can help you arrange the shipping of your household goods with this easy guide: To ship the contents of a 3-bedroom house, along with a car, or the contents of a 4 or 5-bedroom house, a 40-foot shipping container would be the right choice. If you don’t require that much space, a 20-foot shipping container is another option, which can hold the contents of a 3-bedroom house, with some room remaining for a few appliances, such as a lawnmower or the kids’ bikes.
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.
