We have a bunch of my brother-in-law's items stored in our garage in Colorado that we want to be rid of, so we want to ship it to him in Virginia. The items are papers, books, and other personal items currently in cardboard boxes. We probably have 15-20 boxes.
The items don't have to get there overnight or even this week, so I was thinking of shipping the stuff as "cargo". Some of the research I've done talks about Less Than Load shipping, but it's targeted to businesses. Is there a company that can drop a container box off at our house, let us load it with the smaller boxes, then pick it up and send it on its way? Or are there other options?
