Wholesale cheap cupcake box cookie gift boxes biscuit candy

I'm moving from Prince George, BC, to London, Ontario, and need to transport a number of boxes.
I am moving to London for school and have a number of boxes that I need to ship. They contain mostly books and clothes and other personal effects, including some fragile things. Initially I was going to send them with my aunt and uncle in the storage areas in their motorhome, but that has fallen through, so I'm in a bit of a bind. I've read this thread, but I am concerned because I won't have any way to pick up these things from a depot, etc, when I get to London.

What's the cheapest way to do it? I don't have a lot of stuff, but I do have a number of boxes, some of which will contain electronics (a computer monitor, a small guitar amplifier), as well as other items that I consider fragile (two guitars and other personal items).

Currently I am uncertain as to the exact number and size of all of the boxes, as I am still packing, but I'd hazard a guess that they could fit in one of the smaller u-haul trailers, if only I could get a vehicle that was making the trip that was capable of towing it. (I am flying, by the way.)

So, any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated.

Cheaply shipping a bed frame cross-country?

I have a wrought iron headboard, footboard, and full size mattress supports. None of these pieces are particularly heavy. I was wondering if anyone had suggestions as to how I could ship these pieces from NY to SF. I don't even know where I would get boxes for them, if boxes exist for pieces like that, or if an entirely different means exists for shipping of furniture. Thanks!
