The city of Albany started out as a small Dutch settlement back in the early 1600's and has grown into not only New York State's capital city, but an impressive centre of history, culture, higher education and so much more. The city offers a diverse array of neighbourhoods tailored to different demographics, from the vibrant, student area of eastern Pine Hill, to family-friendly, middle-class housing in Helderberg. Albany is situated on the world famous Hudson River, which makes for some exquisite scenery and can be explored via one of Albany's Hudson River Sightseeing Cruises. The city's location also makes it easy for expats to visit other exciting cities such as New York City, Montreal, Boston and Philadelphia. Due to Albany's extensive history, there are many fascinating museums to explore, such as the New York State Museum, Albany Institute of History and Art and the Irish American Heritage Museum. The city is known for its highly rated institutes of higher education and is home to the oldest law school in New York ñ Albany Law School. With its many cultural, historical and educational offerings, it's no surprise that many expats find their new home here. Before relocating to Albany, it's important to make sure you arrange the shipping of your household goods. Two container sizes are available: A 20-foot container would be the right choice for the contents of a 3-bedroom house, whereas a 40-foot container would be more appropriate for the contents of a 4 or 5-bedroom house. A 40-foot container should also be plenty for the contents of a 3-bedroom house, as well as a family car.
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.
