Backing up a bit we ship UPS to addresses in the continental United States which is also know as the lower 48 states.
For cost versus service we use the postal service shipping to Alaska, Hawaii, Military and Government overseas addresses (including APO, FPO, AA), US territories (Guam, Puerto Rico, Virgin Islands) and Canada.
Items are insured with the postal service. Insurance claims can not be filed for 30 days after the item is shipped.
One big difference between this service and domestic shipping is that all orders shipped to APO, etc addresses are shipped with a customs form and subject to customs restrictions of the country they are entering it is generally something that does not affect shipping but it is something to be aware of.
