I may need to ship my son's Bach Strad trumpet from the SF Bay Area to Southern California for valve alignment. I've seen recommendations for bubble wrapping the trumpet, packing it in styrofoam worms, etc., but am wondering which company would be the best - USPS, UPS, FedEx? Also, with insurance (it looks like replacement cost would be approx. $2500), just wondering about how much should we expect to pay.
Thanks for your help!
