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.

I don't just mean in a taxonomic way, but in terms of sorting and ease for the handlers -- is the postal code the most vital part? What's that last line for? [more inside]

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.

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...
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).
Anyone know a good shipping agent in the UK? I have a consignment of goods being sent there from Indonesia. I'm a UK resident but won't be back there until June. The goods will arrive back just before I do & I need an agent to handle all of the admin.
