With its stunning views, majestic beaches and endless attractions, it’s no surprise that so many people find their new home in the South African city of Cape Town. This city prides itself on being multicultural, welcoming all different kinds of people, no matter what their faith or background. The Port of Cape Town is one of the country’s busiest ports, which is not only used to handle fresh fruit and other produce, but is also a popular dock for cruise ships. Cape Town’s natural surroundings are simply breathtaking and you can spend plenty of time in the great outdoors, at places such as Table Mountain National Park, Edith Stephens Wetland Park and Signal Hall. Cape Town also offers a huge range of unique activities to experience, from whale watching and cage diving, to helicopter rides and safaris. This South African city has a warm-summer Mediterranean climate, bringing warm, dry summers and mild, wet winters. Cape Town is Africa’s number one tourist destination and beaches, such as Clifton Beach and Boulders Beach, are one of the city’s most popular attractions for both local residents and visitors. Easing into your new home of Cape Town is sure to be an easy process, but before you jet off to South Africa, you must prepare the shipping of your household items. The contents of a 3-bedroom house, along with a bike or two, could fit comfortable inside a 20-foot shipping container. If you have more to move, a 40-foot container could hold the contents of a 4 or 5-bedroom house, or a 3-bedroom house along with a medium sized vehicle. Once that’s sorted, you’ll be able to fall in love with your new home of Cape Town.
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.
