Need help moving from Kalamazoo, MI to Minneapolis, MN. Advice

I recently got a job that pays well with Medtronic (contract first, good signs for the future). I'll be paid handsomely and I need to start work on April 1st 2013 (or sooner). I have an apartment in Kalamazoo, MI until 5/01/2013. This is a 10 hour drive move, I have slightly less than 2.5 weeks to make it happen. What's the recommended way to do this, some combination of measuring, U-haul, gas cost, driving out there to check places out, figuring what to take, getting rid of the other stuff.... All that. I'm thinking Pods.com (based on Ask.Mefi post searches, along with friends and family, as of now). Input? [more inside]

Best way to get my stuff from Mpls to Chicago?

I'll be moving to Chicago from Minneapolis at the end of the month, and I'm trying to figure out the best (read: easiest/cheapest) way to get 3 people's bedroom furniture plus a living room out there. There's a lot of good advice on askme already, but I thought with ever-increasing gas prices I'd see if new alternatives have popped up. [more inside]

Help us choose where to move - MN or CA?

MN / CA or bust! My SO has received a job offer that could have us moving from Boston to either St. Paul or LA - our choice. I have job leads in both places, but we just can't decide where to go! Both cities seem to rock, but their (perceived) drawbacks make me hesitate. [more inside]

Moving to the Big City

I come from a small town and currently live in a town of roughly 30,000 people. If I were to move to a larger city (400,000 or even much more), what kind of advice can someone who's done the same thing in the past give for how to make that change without being scared shitless? One area I'm thinking about moving to in the future is Minneapolis, Minnesota.
