Moving to California from NYC: How... to do that.
February 10, 2014 1:35 PM Subscribe
So I've just gotten a job in San Francisco and my GF and I will therefore be leaving New York and moving. I've never lived more than 125 miles from NYC before, so I need help with understanding the logistics here.

1. I assume that my best bet for finding an apartment is to do airbnb over there while looking for apartments. Yes/no? Looking at apartments before flying out is not an option.
2. I've thrown out, given away and sold the vast majority of my belongings, including all of the furniture. I am living out of a suitcase in a sublet until the actual move, but my most valuable possessions are in storage right now, specifically books, my computer and some clothes that my girlfriend will need for work out there. How do I get these things to my new apartment once I have one? Just... fedex all my shit? The computer is a desktop and therefore a tricky proposition. What do I do about that?
3. Without asking too much in one question, if there are logistical issues with moving to SF from NYC that I haven't thought of, please let me know. thanks, all.
