How to get stuff from MA to TX

I live in Austin, Texas. I have books and music equipment in Easthapton, Mass. I will be up there in June and have looked for rental vehicles to drive back to Texas. The cost for a one way U-haul is about $1400. Avis charges $1200. I-Pod shipping cost over $2000. Is there any other way to get my stuff to Texas without the cost of a used car?
