Shipping Container Costs to Thessaloniki, Greece

If you’re seeking an exciting, colourful and immensely cultured city – then Thessaloniki is the place for you. It is one of Greece’s most popular destinations for tourists and Thessaloniki is also known as the country’s capital of culture, holding many festivals and events throughout the year. The White Tower is one of the city’s must-see historical and archaeological landmarks. This iconic structure also hosts an exhibition, which describes Thessaloniki’s fascinating history. The climate is classed as humid subtropical, which means that the summers are hot and humid, whilst the winters are rather cold, with fog and occasional snowfall. The Thessaloniki International Film Festival and the Reworks International Music Festival are just two of the many cultural events that occur in the city. Music lovers will also be able to catch an opera at the Thessaloniki Concert Hall, or experience the city’s vibrant nightlife in one of the several bars and music venues. As the country’s second largest city, Thessaloniki is also the country’s secondary location of importance for politics, economy, transportation and industry. Between the city’s many galleries, sports venues, museums, restaurants and theatres – you will never tire of this dynamic Greek city. Planning the shipping of your household goods is essential and we can help those who have never moved before with this simple guide: A 40-foot shipping container will hold the goods from inside a 4 or 5-bedroom house, or a 3-bedroom house as well as a vehicle, if you’re planning on taking a car. On the other hand, a 20-foot container will house items from inside a 3-bedroom house, with some room remaining for a bike or two.
