Shipping Container Costs to Amman, Jordan

Amman is the capital city of Jordan and is not only a hugely popular tourist destination, but is also considered the country’s centre of economics, politics and culture. This Middle Eastern location is Jordan’s most populous city and has a vast, fascinating history that stretches back thousands of years. One of Amman’s most visited sites is the Roman Theatre, which is thought to have been built in the 2nd century AD, and is still used for cultural events and entertainment concerts to this very day. The University of Jordan is Amman’s largest public university, along with several other public, private and international schools located within the city, giving prospective students a number of places to choose from. For those wanting to visit the breathtaking, ancient city of Petra, you can embark on a 7-day trek from Amman and you’ll even have a chance to take a dip in the Dead Sea along the way! Considered one of the most Westernized cities in the Arab World, Amman is a very popular destination for expats, students and tourists from Western countries. There are plenty of restaurants, bars, nightclubs and an abundance of shopping centres located within the city. Before you embark on your journey to the ancient city of Amman, you should make sure you arrange the shipping of your personal items. Transporting belongings from inside a 3-bedroom house will require a 20-foot container, whilst items from inside a 4 or 5-bedroom house will require a 40-foot shipping container. The same 40-foot container will also accommodate items from inside a 3-bedroom house, along with a family car.
