The cosmopolitan south Indian city of Bengaluru is one of the country’s most modern and progressive locations. Bengaluru is the number one city in the nation for information technology, as well as housing many educational and research facilities. Expats will be thrilled to learn that Bengaluru enjoys a comfortable, mild climate, unlike many other cities in India, which can get very hot. The music and nightlife scene in Bengaluru is booming, with countless pubs, bars and hugely popular music venues located within the city. Countless visitors and residents make use of the city’s public bus system, which is a great alternative to travelling by car. To truly experience the area’s culture, join in with the Bengaluru Karage - a historic festival held in the city that is dedicated to Hindu Goddess Draupadi. Due to the high number of expatriates located in Bengaluru, there are a number of international schools to choose from, not to mention a plethora of universities specialising in a range of subjects. Enjoy the city’s luscious, green open spaces by visiting Cubbon Park or the Lalbagh Botanical Gardens, which is one of Bengaluru’s most popular spots for visitors. Those who have moved before will realise how important it is to make arrangements for the shipping of your belongings. We’ve come up with the following simple guide to help you choose a shipping container size: A 40-foot container can hold contents from a 3-bedroom house, along with a medium sized car, or, the contents of a 4 or 5-bedroom house only. Alternatively, a 20-foot container can hold the contents of a 3-bedroom house, with some room remaining for a bike or two.
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.
