Shipping a piece of furniture

I don't have any shipper for shipping large items.
Does UPS ship a piece of furniture like a sofa?
If not, who will ship this in GTA?
Any good shippers you can command?

Thanks in advance.

Probably want a courier or mover, or even look in kijiji or something like that.

Shipping from GTA to where?
Will it be packed in a carton?

I have called a couple movers in Kijiji, they quote me the cost of $100-200.00 across GTA from west end to east end.
The desk is not packed in carton. It is about 60x30x30" with two drawers. It is quite heavy and require two persons.

I think the movers that I called are using big trucks for moving.

Rent a pickup truck from a car rental company for a few hours and ask a friend to help you out :)

You can try something like uShip. There are companies who specialize in this, but they typically work with manufacturers, and I'm not sure they'd do a one time scenario.
