Perhaps most famously known as the home of The Beatles, Liverpool is an extremely popular destination for expats. Historically, Liverpool has been one of the most important trading ports in the world and the city has many major docks, with Albert Dock being the most famous. Due to the Liverpool's extensive, rich history, a diverse array of architecture can be found in the city, from magnificent Tudor buildings such as Speke Hall and Croxteth Hall to contemporary architecture such as the Museum of Liverpool. Liverpool is considered ìthe capital city of popî, but music is not the only type of culture it has to offer. Outside of London, Liverpool offers the most number of national galleries and museums in the whole of the UK. There are also many theatrical venues in the city, including the Empire Theatre and the Liverpool Playhouse. Expats have several options as far as housing and location go, from modern, city apartments to houses or cottages in the countryside, which are only a short commute from the city centre. Moving to Liverpool should be a straightforward endeavour and before you make the move, you should arrange the transportation of your belongings. Two options are available as far as shipping container sizes go: A 20-foot container could hold the contents of a 3-bedroom house, or a 40-foot container could hold the contents of a 4 or 5-bedroom house. If you wish to take your car in addition, the 40-foot option could hold this plus the contents of a 3-bedroom house.
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.
