Moving a (small) collection out of state - help!

I'm desperate for advice, so I'd appreciate any and all. I'm moving from NYC to Kansas (not sure what city yet) in a few months and I have no idea what to do with my wine collection (<100 bottles). All of the info I've found online seems to apply to wholesale or retail shipping, and I'm not certain what applies to shipping to oneself. For better or worse, :D I can't drink it all before I leave, and I can't put it in the moving van since it will be boiled. What I want to do since cost is an important concern is pack the collection in those wine-specific hard styrofoam cases and ship it via UPS in October (or whenever the weather is cool enough). My concern is the legality of such a shipment (and it being returned for that reason), and that should any bottles break I wouldn't be able to collect on the insurance once the insurer found out what the item was (if it is illegal). I don't have the option of taking the collection in my car. I'm really confused about what to do. Please give me any and all advice you can!!!
