Please move the thread if this belongs in another forum. I have a badly stretched (to the point that it's unwearable) 18k Rolex bracelet that I'm trying to send to Michael Young in Hong Kong for restoration. To my surprise, I've been completely unable to find a shipper that can offer me insurance on the package. I've tried FedEx, UPS and DHL and they all either told me that they won't insure it, or that they won't ship precious metals at all, because "money laundering". For some reason UPS offers optional insurance on international parcels in the States but not in Canada.
To anyone in Canada that's familiar with international shipping - since I'm not trying to send $3k in gold halfway across the planet and just cross my fingers that it doesn't get stolen, what are my options? Forgive my ignorance if there's a simple solution that I'm not aware of.
