What's the cheapest (but safe) way to ship several heavy boxes from the UK to Canada?

I'm planning a transatlantic move, and will have two or three large boxes full of things like CDs, books and art, above and beyond my plane ticket baggage allotment. Is the most sensible thing to send these large parcels by post? I imagine it will cost £100-£200.
Really I'm just curious about murmurs I've heard about small-scale freight/storage container shipping... I've enough clothes and things that if the price was right I wouldn't mind sending more stuff home.
If anyone has other tips for secure/easy/safe/inexpensive transatlantic mailing, please share!
