Default Re: Might be moving back to the states - best option for shipping my drums?

For general purpose I checked out the moving company website:

• Limits of Liability: If you “SUBMIT” your claim within 9 months, the TSP’s maximum liability on a shipment is $5,000 or $4 per pound times the weight of the shipment, whichever is greater, but not more than $50,000. If these limitations do not satisfy your loss, the government will evaluate for additional settlement. If you “SUBMIT” your claim after nine months from delivery, but before 2 years, the TSP is liable for only depreciated value of the goods, up to a maximum of $1.25 per pound times the net weight of your shipment.

So far it looks like the US Post office is the best way to go. I can insure a single item up to $5k. That will more than cover the costs of a new kit even at US prices. I am also going to get a quote from UPS and FedEx.

Looks like they even sell shipping insurance seperate from what the carriers will sell you. Lots of options for me to sort through.
