Heavy luggage in Newark

A relative will be coming in to the United States in Newark with some luggage that is too heavy for her to easily handle. Does anyone have any suggestions on hauling this through customs. I figure that, at the least, she should be able to get a cart and ask another traveler to help move the bag(s) off the baggage carrousel. Is there any kind of luggage handling for hire at this airport? Thanks for any responses!

Talk to me about Newark, NJ: Safety, surrounding places to live, etc.

I am in some conversations about a potential new job at an organization based in Newark, NJ. When I was growing up in NJ the city had a reputation for being unsafe. My sense is that things have improved, but how much? What is it like to work in, and live in or near Newark? [more inside]

Transport from Montgomery Co PA to Newark Airport

For upcoming international travel I booked a flight out of Newark for the lower cost. I anticipated having a ride but am now forced to deal with transportation to/from the airport. I'll be gone for just over two weeks and will leave and arrive back during normal business hours on weekdays. I live in Montgomery County PA and am looking for transportation options to Newark Airport. Some options include: - Suburban rail to center city Philadelphia, Amtrak to Newark - Suburban rail to trenton, train to Newark/bus to airport - driving - hiring a car service - shuttle So far it seems like all the public transit options are pretty cheap but a pain from where I live and given that I'll have luggage. Hiring a car service would be easiest but most expensive. I liked the option of the SuperTrans shuttle which could either pick me up at home or at a nearby hotel, but have read terrible yelp reviews on them. Anyone have experience getting to/from Newark that could be helpful here?
