    Default Moving mucho stuff from CT storage space to North Coast

    Contents of two (2!) houses in US, one in Maine, one in CT, in storage. Long story, not interesting, messy divorce. I have till Oct. 1 to empty the storage units. On the advice of a Dominican friend (an international one who born & educated in Santiago,has lived in US, Amsterdam, England), I'm just having the Dominican company from the Bronx come and cart it all up and send it on down. My friend says that even the schtoopidest American things will sell for 3x as much here as in the US. And what do I care? There is an allotment in the settlement that covers my shipping costs. (NOTE: I am not some gold-digging shikseh. This is a negotiated court settlement for 26 years of a bad marriage.)

    But the issue is finding an apartment (and I think an apartment, not a house) that is unfurnished. I know this crosses forum lines, but if anybody has any insights into unfurnished real estate, your input would be greatly appreciated. It could include a beer and a blow job. (That's a joke. The beer part. jajajajajaja)

    You know the residency rules right Meems?

    Car at discounted rate and a load of furniture..... in the first 6 months only

    Still, your Bronx shipment is the fastest and easiest way to fly.
    It will arrive at your door for the price quoted.

    Let me know if you need any contacts..... I'm a regular customer

    With a good lawyer you could probably have residency by September. Count it among your shipping fees, as the taxes could be crazy-high anyway. Especially on a car (40%+ on the perceived value).

    The shipping costs will pale in comparison to the customs tax. Even if you do it within the 6 months of residency they limit the number of duplicate items you can bring in discounted.

    Exactly why I recommend getting residency first. On a tourist visa the costs to receive the goods will go through the roof.

    My residencia is in process. If I have to pay taxes/fees, so be it. The former husband is supposed to be covering those costs as per the settlement agreement. The company I have used in the past is Family Cargo Express. If anyone has any other suggestions, I'd be happy to know them.
