Info on shipping a heavy item

planning a move to AZ. i have a lot of little things that would fit in my car. i also have a toolbox thats about 5 feet high by 3 feet wide. pretty heavy but dont know exactly the weight. i am trying to figure out all my options right now. u-haul quoted me about $500 for a hitch, install, and small trailer. then im guessing about a couple hundred bucks for gas. im also thinking of having the box shipped and i just drive my car. anyone know if its possible to ship something that heavy all the way over there for less? or does anyone have info on what companies would do that so i can contact them? thanks

I'd look into a freight company, that way all you have to do is strap it to a pallet, cover it and have a lift gate truck come fetch it from you, across country its probably going to be cheaper and less strain on your car than towing it.

If you get the Uhaul is it just for the tool box or will you be taking more of your stuff? You can fit alot of stuff in those small trailers.
