Recommendations for international movers?

Seeking recommendations for international shipping/moving companies. I have a small household's-worth to ship from California to the UK (no furniture that's worth keeping, but a large studio full of stuff). There are many companies online but I know from friends' experiences that these waters are shark-infested.

Is there a shoptheuk.com?

There are some UK sites I'd like to purchase from but they don't ship here to the States. Anyone know of a workaround that doesn't involve personally knowing someone over there? Something like shopthestates.com, but for UK shopping...

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).
