Moving is the Search the List category. Hauling (junk and trash removal vendors) commonly do small moves like this too - just make sure to talk to them about padding and protectionk from messes in the truck so your stuff does not end up there coated in leavings from trash hauling.


Cheaper - unless you are physically unable or have a tiny car, get an old blanket or quilt or two (yours or buy cheap at Salvation Army) some PADDED moving paper at a UHaul or such and put the padded items in trunk or back seat, making several trips as necessary. Rent a hand truck from UHaul if needed too - normal light duty size will fit in the front seat of most cars on an angle if you need it at both ends to load and unload.


Or - have a friend with a pickup who will help out for some pizza and a beer at the end of the move ?

Or rent a U-Haul pickup truck for probably about $50-75 (including mileage) and find a friend to help carry for the price of pizza and beer or whatever.
