Help with shipping

Hey folks - friends, acquaintances, etc.

I need to ship the remainder of my belongings out here to LA. However, the quotes I've gotten have been prohibitively expensive - at least $1900.00, and that for only part of my stuff, not even the whole load. Renting a U-Haul would end up being even more expensive, plus would require a week of my time. So that's not a feasible option.

So, if any of you, who have relocated across the country, know of a way to get about half an apartment's-worth of stuff out to LA, I'd be mighty grateful if you could provide a suggestion. I figure my budget is something along the lines of $1500.00, but I'd really like to do it for less. I'm considering, in fact, just flying home and boxing crap up and shipping it to myself at $40.00 a box, and giving away, selling, or getting rid of the furniture.

Anyone have any thoughts or suggestions? Maybe your out-of-work brother-in-law who's willing to drive his mini-van cross country in exchange for some cash? Teleportation devices that your mad-scientist neighbor wants to test? Anything?
