I haven't got a problem with paying duty - it still works out a lot lot cheaper than paying UK prices! It'd just be nice to be able to fill in the forms for them to attach and then get it couriered.

It simply requires a Customs declaration form, which details the contents/value of the goods in the package. It's up to Customs at the *receiving* country as to whether or not Excise duty and VAT are worth collecting. Banding stuff together is more likely to attract the charges than if individuals buy from the 'States in drib'n'drabs. I often buy stuff from overseas and rarely do I have to pay duty. It almost always happens because the supplier has sent out large numbers of packages, to different individuals in the UK, in one batch. This makes C&E think that someone's trying to deliberately avoid the duty.
I'd say the company you're dealing with in USAland can't be arsed.
