Getting there is a snap. Four major airports are located within one hour's drive-time. If you're hitting the road with your own set of wheels, crank up the GPS and you'll be in Westbury in the drop of a hat.
Westbury is susceptible to the four distinct weather seasons. A good rule-of-thumb is to arrange a relocation anytime other than winter's December, January and February when snow, sleet and freezing rain can put a quick damper on your much anticipated move.

A photo ID (such as a valid driver's license), recent workplace and prior rental history references and some recently paid utility bills in your name should do the trick.
