Ok - why can't it be disassembled - they come that way from the factory, after all. Here are a couple of links - you might have to go to their website for details on your specific model, but they can be disassembled and reassembled without undue difficulty - just don't lose any pieces along the way - double ziplock bag or better ziplock bad and then box the small pieces in a normal size moving box - NOT a tiny box which can get lost.

For moving, since a queen is probably a bit too big for a pickup without overhanging the side the better part of a foot, either have some friends (at each end) to help load and unload and ship upright strapped against the sidewall of a rental box truck, or call a Moving (your Search the List category) company to ship as part of a less-than-truckload shipment. I would image probably $200-300 for the freight charge depending on where in CA/NV you are talking, and $100-200 at each end for the labor to load/unload.

Depending on distance, but you are likely talking similar cost to DIY with a UHaul or Ryder truck or such, counting rental costs and mileage charges and drop charges and gas and food, maybe a night or two in a motel, etc - at least if going further than from maybe LA area to Vegas area or such. And of course not counting any lost wages fro your time.

Note - shipping by Mover may take a week or even two, because the truck will be carrying multiple shipments so takes several days picking up shipments, then a day or two ot a week or so more travel time dropping off shipments along the way. Last LTL move like that I was involved in had something like 11 shipments being picked up and delivered in the course of a cross-country trip by one of the 35-53 foot stretch moving trailers.

Course, if you are not going to be there at the pickup AND delivery locations, would have to make arrangements for them to get into the place at each end.
