Cheapest method to ship/move household and personal items cross-country?
Would it be cheaper to hire a professional mover to drive everything down here as I anticipate it wouldn't even be a full truck load of stuff? What kind of rates should one expect from a mover? Or is it better just to ship the items individually through usps, ups, fedex, etc? Is there some kind of bulk or flat rate shipping discount available through any of the postal options for bigger items?
Not in a rush but just wanted to research the options available. Also, there would be no hurry in shipping the items themselves. If it took a few weeks to arrive that would be fine.
