It depends on how much stuff you're shipping, how quickly you need it moved, exactly where in the US/world you are going, and of course your budget.

You can use the Royal Mail or a courier such as UPS for a few boxes, or one of the "excess baggage" companies.

I have used a freight forwarder a couple of times for a half a dozen to a dozen boxes of books and tools.

Or you can use an international shipper if you have a home full of stuff i.e. including furniture. That can be using a whole container (20ft/1,100cuft or 40ft/2.200 cuft), or a shared container if you don't need a whole one.

Apologies Pulaski.
The chap was posting to access the PM system so your time has been wasted.
Not my area but I will close the thread.
