Excess baggage - moving to USA (New York)

Hi all!
I am moving to NYC next month and currently in the process of booking my flight.
As most of the airlines flying from London to NYC only allow 1 piece of baggage to be checked-in for free, I was wondering if anyone has any advice on an airline that they have used which offers more (for standard economy flights to USA)?

Also, I have heard people mention that some airlines may give you an increased luggage allowance if they know that you are relocating - is this true? and has anyone experienced this?? (sounds too good to be true!!) If so, with which airline?

I am considering paying to get a bag shipped over separately - so any recommendations for good excess baggage couriers in UK would be great.
I am on a tight budget so any good vlaue recommendations would be greatly appreciated!!
