The value of further conversation really depends upon the extent of damage and estimated cost to repair.

I always refuse damaged goods on a common carrier, pizzes the driver off, but wtf, I'm not paying for broke chit, nor am I spending my time trying to straighten out their fock ups.

Carrier has to have cargo insurance, if the engine builder doesn't want to help you out of remorse than you file claim with the carrier. Like was said here, carrier signs for everything in good order upon pickup and you recieved goods where the boxes or crates have visable damage on them and you signed the delivery bills as damaged you go against the carrier.
