I have sent 4 complete engines to the mid-west from the east coast. 598 14-71 motor plates installed and we made support brackets with mounting plates for one bolt in each corner a total of 4. and also crated the engines with plywood with 2x4 studs to secure the plywood to. It seems to me that someone was in a hurry and didn't care about the out-come. SORRY to hear about it. Stuff like that effects all of us in business. There is no excuse for 2 bolts holding those engines!

If the crates looked good upon arrival, I would say the shipper is responsible, not the carrier. If the carrier mishandled them, the crates would most likely be damaged. The shipper is the one that secured them in the crates. If the engines were damaged and not the crates, then the engines were not secured properly in the crates. It's easier to go after the shipper since when you signed the bill of lading you only agreed that the crates looked undamaged when they arrived. The carrier will not let you open them to inspect the freight until you sign.

I ship engines daily with many ltl carrriers. First, you must class the product correctly and insure the shipment for replacement value. I have had claims with all carriers. Some worked out better than others. Most of the time they want to repair the product, which is not an option with my products. I usually submit a retail bill and get reimbursed enough to replace the product. YOU MUST have pictures of the damage and have the damage noted by the driver upon delivery on the bill of laden. If you do not do this........you are screwed no matter what. I do so much shipping, my local sales rep. will usually step in and help out.
