Help!

So on Saturday I'm moving from Boston to Dallas Texas, and will have to ship my 5 bettas. I've done research and have everything I will need but 2 questions!

1. Do I have to ship them
Overnight or is priority 2 day acceptable?
2. I have the fish bags but has anyone ever tried shipping in large water bottles? It seems there would be as much oxygen inside a large Fiji water bottle as there would be in the plastic bags?

Thanks!

Couldn't the fish get slammed against the hard water bottle during transit?

if you are flying, the nyes, it is best to ship them. If you are driving, then I would just take them with you. I moved 450 miles, and the fish were kept in bags in a styrofoam cooler. When I got to my destination, the tanks hadn't gotten there yet, so the bags were untied and clipped to the sides of the cooler with those black document clips (alligator clips, i think they are called". This worked for 3 goldfish, a pleco, a betta, and some black shark things.
