    Confused I need to move my tools- HELP

    11 year NATE tech w/ plumbing background as well. Needless to say, I have a whole lot of tools, meters, & specialty instruments, etc.

    I'm moving from FL to MN for the sake of $$$.

    Can only take so much on the plane w/ me; wife & son will be driving up w/ the last of it, once I've established our new place.

    WHAT IS THE MOST ECONOMICAL AND RELIABLE MEANS OF TRANSPORTING THE BULK OF MY TOOLS ACROSS COUNTRY??? Fed Ex/ UPS/ USPS? Greyhound? PODS? Random moving company?

    Anyone with personal/ professional input, PLEASE respond.

    Maybe a pallet and truck it up?? Whatever you do get insurance! Take pictures etc, have a list.

    We moved a museum from Baltimore to KY with pods or something similar. Very reasonable price.
    Karst means cave. So, I search for caves.

    Cool common carrier

    palletize it, inventory photos or video with narration, insurance then have it sent to the nearest terminal for you to p/u at their loading dock. You can track it via the PRO number.
    HTH,
