This probably is too small of a load for this but we have had good luck
moving high value industrial control panels using the special cargo division
of carriers like United Van Lines
standard household moving trucks with crews dedicated to moving high value
electronics, exhibits, art, etc. around the country. With a 2 person crew
in the truck you can go a hell of a long ways in 2 days though the cost may
not be exactly pretty.
