The "been there done that" thread: life in the US after DV

I'm planning my permanent move to the US some time early next year. I would like to hear your thoughts on how moving as a new immigrant should go about.

1. Should I find a permanent home first before I send my personal items over?
2. Is there any exemption of tax on the import of personal items of new immigrants (the equivalency of the "Transfer of Residency" in the UK)?

Would love to hear your personal experience. TIA.

1. Personal choice
2. There is no tax on bringing your own items in, other than I believe alcohol - we were advised by the mover not to put any in our container.
