Our vacation has taken us from VA to OR, where my SIL has offered us a lg. rolltop desk. I haven't the first idea how to get it back to VA. One person suggested calling a moving van co; another said that was too risky.

Any ideas? Suggestions? TIA, chery-va

Chery - try to locate a LTL (less than truckload) carrier in your area. They specialize in moving many small shipments all going to the same location.

"LTL" being "Less than Truck Load".

Also check with Greyhound, which will ship some things for you depending on weight/size.
