Good Questions: Best Shipping for Large Furniture?

Dear AT,

I have the luck to procure a really nice sofa and loveseat from friends who are moving. The problem is that they are in North Carolina and I am in Chicago. In searching around the web there are mentions of partial moves but when I contact moving companies they say they have a minimum size and quote over $1000; shipping companies are not better because of maximum weight limits. I know there has to be a better/cheaper solution but I just don't know where to turn.

Any ideas?
