Shipping home my luggage from Nepal.

I'm in Kathmandu, Nepal for the week, and I have a big, very heavy suitcase that I really don't want to drag around on the rest of my trip. Any advice on shipping it home to the USA?

Lost in Orlando

I have a relative who will be in Orlando from december 8 to 18. I'd like to order some (photo) products online and have them sent to a safe/reliable address where he can pick them up. Many places, like B&H, will not ship to a hotel. Is there any way around this? I don't know anyone in the city.

How to get a sofa from Arizona to Toronto when seller won't ship?

I'm in Toronto, Canada. A sofa set I want is in Arizona. The seller of the sofa set won't ship anywhere. I cannot fly out and get the sofa. How can I get the sofa? That is, is there someone or a service I can hire in Arizona to go get the sofa, package it up, and ship it to me? The pieces come apart (legs, back, arms) very easily (no tools) and all could ship relatively flat. Suggestions?

Help me stop UPS from destroying my wife's artwork!

My wife recently sold an art piece and is having trouble figuring out how to ship it. It's four rectangular panels with dried leaves sticking out perpendicular in narrow rows. The leaves, while fairly sturdy, are thin enough that they need to be suspended without anything touching the tops of them to prevent them from being smashed. Pictures are here and here and here. Each of the four panels is 4"x24" with the leaves about 4" high. The border of each panel is 1/4" deep and 1/8" wide. We've considered carving out styrofoam, but the narrowness of the border dissallows that. The only solution we've been able to come up with is to wood-glue some more of the panel material into slots for the panels to slide into, but we're not sure if that is the best option here. Any ideas, websites, suggestions or insights would be very, very much appreciated!

What is the best way to ship something from the Internet to Asia?

I would like to ship a gift from North America to Southeast Asia. Shipping costs from Amazon are very high - >= the cost of the item (a hardcover book). Would it be best to ship from Amazon, buy it locally and ship from here, or find an online retailer in Southeast Asia that stocks the item I'm looking for (would need suggestions here as well!)? I need 3-4 weeks shipping time max. Also, would I generally need to worry about customs if I ship this as a gift?

Cheap Cross-Continental Shipping for 98 Banker's Boxes?

What's the cheapest way to move a bunch of banker's boxes across the United States? I have 98 sealed banker's boxes full of books, papers, and a few durable household items in New York City and want to move them to San Francisco. What's the cheapest way to do that short of driving them across the country myself? USPS, UPS, Fedex, etc. all want to treat these as 98 parcels, which is prohibitively expensive. I could pay a moving company to do it, but that's also quite expensive -- and it's not like I need that kind of don't-scratch-my-antiques level of care anyway. Isn't there a cheaper way to get 98 uniform, nonfragile boxes across the country?

How to have snow in Texas?

How practical(and I use the term loosely) is it to have snow shipped? I have a dear friend who was praying for snow on her birthday, but although it was looking hopeful, we are, in fact, in Texas. Could a large foam cooler, lined with dry ice, keep the snow not only frozen, but at least snow-ey enough to make snowballs?
