I'm looking for any and all suggestions, advice, or experience moving a small amount of personal items from Canada to the USA on a K1 Visa. I have too much stuff to fit in a car, but not enough to fill a moving truck ( Biggest items are TV, kitchen table and chairs, boxes of kitchen stuff; but no couch or bedroom furniture). It seems expensive to do Uhaul since they charge according to mileage and this is going from south western Ontario to New Jersey (9 hours).
I've heard that there may be options to rent a small part of a truck or companies who do little container shipping and put a bunch of them from different people on a truck. Anyone know anything about this or any better ideas?
I need to figure out an option where the cost of moving the stuff doesn't cost more than the stuff is worth!
