Moving from San Diego to Los Angeles with a Moving Company

It looks like I will be moving to LA in as little as 6-8 weeks. I would like to use a moving company to make this happen as my parents and friends will largely be unavailable at the time I need to go go go. Can you recommend a moving service in San Diego, and can you tell me what I should be aware of from a safety, budget, bargaining, etc standpoint?

Budget: I *think* I will have about $1000 to make this happen.
Will Need to Move:
two small bookshelves
one large TV unit (if new apartment will fit it)
and then many boxes of books, cookware, and all the rest of my stuff
I'm thinking that I will want to bring the books and my valuables (and my cat) up with me in my car, and then everything else needs to go with a mover.
What company in San Diego would you recommend, and how should I go about arranging all of this so I am safe and not taken advantage of? How can I make sure I treat the movers right? Do I tip? Am I responsible for gas? Is my budget enough for what I need to move?
