what is the best way, in your opinion, to move across the country? This shit is morbid expensive. U-Haul is $1500, pod is $2,000. WTF mon.
We don't have much furniture--a couple of chairs and a bookshelf, really, which we'd be willing to get rid of anyway. What we have tons of is books and kitchen stuff.
Shipping seems like the best bet. When I moved to Iowa I USPS'd everything and it was a huge pain the ass and they lost some of my boxes but still it ended up only being like $400.
What do you guys think? Is there a secret I don't know about? In terms of shipping, which vibe do you prefer? I have read mixed things about USPS, UPS, and FedEx and now don't know who to trust!!!
Or, lets say a person did want to keep their meager furniture...is there a way I am totally overlooking for getting it across our lands? Probably not, right? But anyway, all info is appreciated. I like to "brainstorm."
