Shipping books and other such necessary items.

Shipping books and other such necessary items.

We're moving across the country (from Travis AFB, CA back to Chicago) in about six months. We don't have a whole lot in the way of furniture and won't be taking any, but we are driving in a really small car and won't have room for everything we'd like to take. It isn't a whole lot; two or three boxes of mixed media (books, dvds, etc), and box or two of misc. household items. I know that Amtrak ships things, but they don't have rates on their site and I haven't heard a whole lot about their service. Have any of you used them before, and if so, how was the cost and were you happy with the service? Do you know of any other relatively cheap and reliable methods of moving your stuff?
