What is the safest and cheapest way to ship 4-7 boxes (and possibly an iMac) overseas?

I have about 4-7 boxes of books and clothes that I'd like to ship overseas, from California to York, England. I'd like to know what experiences you have had with the shipping option you used (and what the options were)? I'm a bit overwhelmed by the google search results. Also wondering if there's a media rate for books. If so, I'll repack everything so that books are all in the same boxes, and clothes are elsewhere.
Your suggestions about which services to use and how to pack these boxes is most welcome. Shipping travel time is not important, but shipping cost is. Thanks!
I will not actually be shipping the boxes. But I will be (re)packing them in the next two days, including a plan for shipping (so that they will be packed appropriately and ready to go). I may or may not ship all nine boxes and/or the iMac, depending on what the cost/method will be.
