Hello all,

I'm finally escaping from NJ thanks to a new job. Since this is my first major move, I would appreciate some help and advice with the following.

1. What is the price range to have a moving company move some furniture from a 2-3 bdr apartment to California? I also have a 2007 Toyota Camry that I would like to have moved.

2. Will I be able to drive my 2007 Camry in CA?

3. What are some good and cheap moving companies?

Thank you again for any help.

Congrats on escaping the Dirty Jerz

1. Probably around $2,000 give or take
2. I don't see why not
3. Google & compare rates & reviews

A friend of mine wanted just a room full of things shipped out from the boston area and the moving prices were outrageous ... like well over 4K! ... and that was just for a lot of boxes basically ... nothing heavy and no furniture.
If you have help, renting a u-haul and having someone else drive your car out would be less costly.
You can drive any car that you want to drive .. it will need to pass smog test though.
Here's craigslist for S.F. bay area.
Take a looksy and be prepared to be shocked at rental prices.

Cars can be shipped for like $700-1,000.
And you can get a POD for like $1-2,000 depending on the size. A moving company may charge a few grand. Like jaijai said you would be better off
getting a U-Haul & then you could have you car shipped. It's still gonna cost you $2-3,000.
