Cheapest way to send household stuff and artwork from UK to USA

Moving back to the States from the UK and looking for the cheapest way to ship stuff that we won't immediately need to have on our arrival. Since the move is from London to Miami sea freight seems like the best option. We also have some fragile and oddly-shaped art that we'd like to have handled separately (and carefully). I've looked around for quotes from sea cargo specialists, but would appreciate any suggestions for ideas I may have overlooked. [more inside]

I need to ship an item from the Russian Federation to the UK...

Some months ago, I lost my iPod in Moscow whilst out there doing festival biz (I'm a Brit by residence). Incredibly, someone found it, the Apple security held, and I got an email from someone telling me they'd be happy to meet up and give it back. As the air fare is higher than the device cost, I thought going postal would be the best option, but I've drawn a blank - most of the delivery companies either want me to pay cash on the Russian side, or expect me to have a corporate account.

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).
