What should i do Sell or fork-up the money?

I Have.....

A desk that is a MUST that can be broken down and mailed but not the surface piece it's a pretty big corner desk, 7x2.5x1 (LxWxH) surface should I make fit in the car? or get trailer.

mailing all my clothing in a 24x24x24 cube box, shrink and seal. ship for 65.00 ups

another box 24x24x24 Cube box with other stuff in it like draws filled with things and little books crammed around it to fill the box. for 65.00 ups

The bed set. Bed set with 2 night stands, about 8x5 a queen size. SHOULD I just sell of my bed set? and buy one later? or get uhaul trailer ( the bed has sharp corners and i'm going to have a new born that will one day run into it)

I have a good amount of sports gear that i need to bring that will be in my car or i can ship for maybe the same price 65.00

and a Tool Chest with about 1200.00 worth of tools that can go in my trunk just fine (Alone)

Oh and a 46's flat screen tv.

Should i get a hitch = 190.00
and get a trailer = 271.00 to carry it all? or should i just ship it with the boxes for 65.00 a box and sell the bed?.

boxes would cost roughly 200.00 and the trailer I need to buy the hitch so it would cost roughly 500.0 and maybe some extra gas

I'm driving a 06 Acura tsx

I dont have much money so i'm trying to figure out what you guys think would be the best way to move.

If you don't have a place to come TO (nothing is mentioned) then you don't need anything to come WITH.

I'm moving to Clayton,NC from FL. moving to a house with my g/f's Dad and paying rent, my g/f is having my child that is only going to be couple houses down. I get a room bathroom and a study room. Now i'm just trying to get my things up there coming from my parents house in FL which i can just keep some of my things here and come back later for the others, but the things that are mention are the things that will be going on the first trip at the minimum.
I'm actually thinking of leaving the tool chest and come back for that later.

Rent as small a truck that the stuff will still fit into *and* will be able to pull the dolly you need to also rent
(for the car to come along behind it). It costs what it costs... but it'll be far better to do it all in one go and be done.

Good luck in NC.
