Are you stating that your driver's license is only valid for operating a motorcycle? I didn't know that was an option - being issued one only valid for motorcycles. Here is The Great State of Washington you're first issued a DL for motor vehicles, then you can apply and be tested for a rider for motorcycles.

CA DMV has same requirements..

Not here... motorcycle is simply an endorsement on an existing driver's license after the appropriate training and testing is completed but a driver's license is not a requirement for a motorcycle license.

To the original question, easiest option for moving a small amount of stuff without a car/van/truck is probably something like the Uhaul U-Box or the PODS shipping containers

I hired two college kids to move me back to a city I used to live in. To move to the city where the college kids lived I paid UHaul $475 for a truck I loaded and unloaded myself and then another $100 to fill the giant gasoline tank back up.

I paid the college kids $650 and they did all the work. They rented the truck and bore all of the expenses.

Following up on LEDphile's suggestion:

Depending upon the size of the trailer, you can rent one for 24 hours for $20- $40, and add $10 for insurance. Hire a local with a pick up truck to pick up a Uhaul trailer, locally, pull it up to Gainesville, help you load it, and drag it back in a day. You might get away with $200-$250 for the driver, $50 for the trailer, and IDK $150 for fuel.

Note: it is usually cheaper to pull the trailer round trip, than a one way rental.

My neighbor's girlfriend used a PODS to mover her entire apartment full of stuff. I'd forgotten about that. She had 30 days to unload it too (or rather he did, she just told him where to put it).
