Purolater, FedEx, etc. are best for shipping valuable of fragile items.

U. S. Postal Insurance stops at the border; in other words the insurance is not applicable to foreign shipments (including to Canada). Some postal employees do not realize this.
Again, use Purolater, etc. which provide adequate insurance coverage.

A shipper often used here in Canada is Greyhound; very good, maximum coverage you can buy is $999.00.
