Some Movers do part-truck shipments, but you would probably get the best price from an LTL (Less Than Truckload) truck freight company like Arkansas Freight, Yellow Freight, Pacific Fast Express (PFE), etc. Because charges are based on both volume and weight, your best prices would be to ship it disassembled for minimum volume, and if boxed or cardboard wrapped would be less damaged too.

You could check with a package shipping store for price too, but likely to be more expensive by 50% or so with them - partly because you are adding a middleman, but also because they tend to use the most expensive packaging means.

You will also need to decide if you can deliver it to them or if they have to pick it up, and if you cannot have it readily accessible to the truck (say in garage) or need it moved upstairs at its destination, then you are probably going to have to go with a nationwide moving company like Bekins, North American, Mayflower, etc. as trucking-only companies, like UPS, only pick up and deliver to your door - not moving stuff around in the house. Ditto if it is quite valuable - then you want a moving company to crate and ship it for you.
