UPS, USPS, or FedExGround

UPS, USPS, or FedExGround
I am trying to figure out the best way to ship my items to Oahu. It appears that it is cheaper to use each of the companies based on size and weight of the item. (I don't need the items fast so the timeframe doesn't matter - even parcel post will work for me.) But, I am having trouble sorting out which is cheapest for what.

Can someone help me know the cheapest way to ship the following types of items:
Very small heavy items (this one I know - USPS Priority mail for anything over 3 lbs)

Heavy, Uhaul book box , like for paper files (25-30lbs; USPS Media mail is for books, but what about files?) 1cubic foot box, 12X12X12

Small Uhaul boxes (1.5 cubic feet, 16X12X12) filled are about 25-30lbs

Medium Uhaul boxes (3 cubic feet 18X18X16) filled are 30-40lbs

Large, bulky items, like a bicycle or my sleep number bed, which breaks into pieces

Thanks in advance for any advice!
Kristina

For my move I have only used USPS in the past and it worked fine. In your case I would call each shipper and get a quote. So like that you have a better idea how much it will cost and how long it will take. Good luck with your move.
