Shipping Fine Art

Let's say I wanted to have some fine art (paintings) shipped professionally. That's museum-style professionalism I'm looking for. Going to NYC, coming from various parts of the country/world. Where they're coming from isn't important - this is entirely made-up, a small part of a budget as part of a hypothetical project. Can you give me any sort of ballpark figures, considering various sizes and various points of origin?

Help me get my groovetube on!

I really love this product (it is cool, isn't it?) - but as a Canadian, it seems just out of my grasp as they won't ship it to me. This site also has it, but again, discriminates against Canadians.

Is shipping insurance worth it?

Does anyone have any personal experience with buying and then having to make a claim against the insurance you can get when shipping through the major carriers, i.e. USPS, UPS. FedEx, DHL? Are any of them better than the others when it comes to making a successful claim? Or is buying it just like pissing money away because they make it so difficult to get paid if something does happen? Any tips, tricks from the community?

Feline Move Post Coast-to-Coast

I am moving from the West Coast to the East Coast and I'm wondering what the best way to move my beloved cat. I was originally going to bring her on my flight as a carry-on, but I'm thinking that the plane ride may be too long in a small pet carrier. There is also the option of checking her in as luggage, but most airlines don't allow this in the summer months (i.e. the time I'm moving). Any suggestions? Shipping is also an option; any suggestions on airline-friendly kennels that can attach water and food? Also, to sedate or not to sedate?

Cheapest thing on Amazon UK

What is the cheapest thing on Amazon UK? I want to place an order for two CDs, and they come to £18.98 - 2p short of being able to get free shipping. Is there anything I can buy that will cost less than the couple of quid for shipping? I had a look, but most things were on a 4 to 6 weeks basis, and I'd like something on 24 hours (the same as the CDs).

How should I ship two vinyl LPs?
