I'd say either usps priority or priority medium flat rate box (depends on the weight if flat rate will be worth the $60-something price tag to the UK) Priority will arrive to the UK fairly quickly also and have tracking and signature confirmation option. If it's an inexpensive item and under 4 lbs, I would just do usps 1st class international. As far as declared value, up to you. I personally don't change the value of anything but others on here with more experience shipping international may say differently.

Could I get some help on an auction title? What would you call this pattern?

Don't  use UPS for international shipments. They charge huge fees on top of whatever VAT the item's value requires. I use USPS exclusively for international shipments.  Anything 4 lbs and under is First Class International.

 

Whether you are willing to lie on a Federal customs form to save your buyer some money is entirely up to you.  I make it clear in my listings that VAT and other taxes are the responsibility of the buyer as required by the government of their country. I've only had a couple of people complain. Anyway, I print my postage through eBay, and it always prints out the customs forms with the sale value automatically in the right spots.

Thread Starter 
I wanted to recommend a cart that I picked up at IKEA. A lot of their office stuff is functional and budget-friendly. They have these on clearance:




They were normally €50 but are on sale for €20. Really sturdy with nice wheels. I grabbed a couple for photo equipment and shipping supplies, since I'm always moving around. I'm going to get another one or two for my garage to carry tools.

It looks like they're $29.99 in the US, though I'm not sure if that's a sale price.

Edited to add: These aren't plastic, but metal and relatively heavy at 10kg/21lbs.

The name is "Råskog."

Austrian link (€20 price in-store): http://www.ikea.com/at/de/catalog/products/50227973/

US link ($29.99): http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/50227973/

From the perspective of someone in the UK.

1. Whoever is best in the US, if they have a UK presence (like UPS) then they may stay with the same shipping company from start to finish, if not they will get passed across to Parcelforce once it gets to the UK and they are at best OK.
2. Not if you want to insure it, and if it is worth any reasonable amount of money, you will want to insure it. In the UK we also get charge VAT and import duties on the shipping cost, so if it is fairly expensive to ship then your buyer is going to get charged whatever.

Personally I wouldn't sell to someone who wanted me to value the package lower, it's too risky.
