I set up shipping a camera from CT to my daughter in Vancouver BC Can with our local Post Office. While watching the tracking, the camera made the 70 miles to JFK Airport and was promply stolen BY USPS PERSONNEL! No one really cared at USPS (like it happens on a regular basis). I shipped another camera to my daughter via UPS and she recieved it in 5 days. Oh yeah, it took 5 months to finally get the the insuance because they thought I was trying to SCAM THEM! Save yourself lots of time and money...use UPS.
