Shipping Famous Landmarks Overseas

Posted 10th May 2018

Every country has some landmarks they’re particularly proud of. They give a sense of national pride, comradery and in some cases generate a tremendous amount of revenue from tourism alone.

Here at 1st Move we’ve been flexing our creative muscles to visualise what some of these mishmashes in cultures would look like, and just in case any government was interested we’ve worked out exactly how much it would cost to make it happen (turns out, it’s quite a lot!).

For example, if President Trump decided that building a wall on the border was in fact, too much effort and instead chose to move an existing one, it would take an eye-watering £1.8 trillion to ship over the Great Wall from China to the Mexican border.

Or perhaps you fancied seeing Brazil's behemoth Christ The Redeemer statue sitting next to the Westminster Abbey. Well, it would cost around £17.7 million for the pleasure, but, a small price to pay to liven up the capital's skyline.

Well have a look at the full list of visualisations below, and let us know which landmark you'd most like to see in your hometown.

Great Wall of China relocated from China to USA-Mexico border Eiffel tower relocated from Paris to New York Pyramid of Giza relocated from Giza to Las Vegas Christ the Redeemer relocated from Rio De Janeiro to London Statue of Liberty relocated from New York to Vatican City Taj Mahal relocated from Uttar Pradesh to Paris The Colosseum relocated from Rome to St. Petersburg

If you enjoyed this list as much as we did making it, give it a share or tell us which landmarks you'd like to see relocated aboard.

Simply the best! Highly recommend 1st Move International, outstanding service. I had a large shipment of all my worldly goods to SA of which many items were very fragile. The packaging was so amazing not a single item was broken. And the communication was excellent all the way. Thank you to all at the company.

We have used 1st Move International over the past five years and never had a concern. The service we have received has encouraged us to give 1st Move International's details to all our friends

Everything about 1st Move itself was excellent - they were efficient, courteous, very responsive to all my concerns and very straightforward to deal with.
