Hauling Furniture to Baltimore

I have the opportunity to acquire some nice furniture from my folks, stuff I'd (as a student) could never afford. I don't know how to drive, nor do I have friends who would help with this. I'm looking for people who shipped things like 45lbs office chairs and large wooden desks to recommend a freight carrier that will pick up in boston and drop off in baltimore. Or even suggest a moving company. Basically, I know what to look for, I just want anecdotes and recommendations on the best (read: cheapest, I can wait a week so long as it gets here cheap) way to do this. As far as budget goes, I'd like to not spend more than $200 and if I can do it for $100 I'll be ecstatic.

Recommend a good home-office chair for a laptop user.

I need a better chair for my home workspace. Because my computer is a laptop I will never be able to achieve the ergonomically proper practices suggested in the diagrams here or here
(the way the keyboard is positioned here is absurd. but negative tilt is impossible with a laptop.)
To make matters worse: I love the touchpad mouse and the keyboard on the laptop to the point where I am unable to work efficiently with any other setup. However, while I can work well it costs me physically: my neck, shoulders, upper and lower back, and even thighs ache after short sessions of working.
I'm wondering, has anyone used a kneeling chair with a laptop? The other problem is that the computer is old and I can't go wireless because it eats batteries.
