Man with a Van service in Brooklyn?

I'm moving some things from a storage unit in Brooklyn to an apartment. I don't need a full scale moving service, just one of those Man-with-a-Van services you see advertised for $25 an hour or so on Craigslist or on lamp post flyers. Rather than take a risk on an unknown, can anyone recommend a guy they've used before? [more inside]

Navigating moving and real estate- New York City style

We are currently in the process of selling a co-op in Brooklyn and purchasing another co-op in Brooklyn. How do people pull this off without ending up temporarily homeless? Really NYC-specific stuff under the fold, so recent NYC real estate experience would be best. [more inside]

How feasible is renting out a condo while living in another city?

I am thinking about buying a specific apartment (condo) in Brooklyn, NY. For this question, let's assume that this apartment is a smart investment / better than renting, financially. While I don't have plans to leave New York in the immediate future, I'm not 100% committed to staying here, either. So my question is about contingencies: if I got this apartment, then in a few years needed to move to a different city, how much pain would I be bringing upon myself to keep the apartment and rent it out?

Egypt Was Good Enough for King Tut

MovingFarAwayFilter: GF is dead-set on moving from Brooklyn to Cairo, Egypt, for at least a year. I'm pretty resistant to the idea since I love NYC and, if forced to move outside the US, there are hundreds of cities I'd rather move to. I desperately need some 1st/2nd person accounts of living in Cairo / Egypt to help make this decision. [more inside]

Parking a PODS/you-pack moving container in Brooklyn?

How do I get space to park a you-pack moving container (think PODS) in Brooklyn? I'm moving to New York from DC for a new job in a few weeks. I'm moving the bulk of my stuff using ABF U-Pack - I'm subletting for two months and need my stuff stored until I find more permanent digs. In DC, I know I need to get a permit for the moving container for space in front of my place, but how do I do this in New York? Digging around on NYC.gov hasn't given me any leads.
